The Knott's Berry Farm (KBF) Discussion Thread in Theme Parks, Roller Coasters, & Donkeys! Posted October 14, 2013 Assuming you go during regular operating hours (before 5pm), you should be fine. However, if you go during Haunt hours (after 7pm), you'll need to pay Haunt admission. That's assuming Haunt is still happening on the 1st; I imagine it goes for a few days afterwards. It goes to the 2nd. Does the park close before the haunt starts, or do you get to stay in?
