For the first time this year, the Skeleton Key Rooms will be standalone rooms that are independent from mazes. The four Skeleton Key Rooms will each feature a unique story and theme. Lets check out the 4 rooms...

020.thumb.JPG.a3a802b86485bb7e0f13cd7231915f66.JPG

First up, Visions. Guests must investigate the Green Witch Museum in Ghost Town where it is not the building that is haunted, but the various items contained within. Using a Phantom Finder augmented reality device, guests will be able to identify and witness paranormal activity connected to items from the Sarah Marshall Witch Trial.

021.thumb.JPG.f66862751714039d899cf12fcbbfb62f.JPG

In Slasher guests are invited to step into an 80’s slasher horror film. The masked Angel Maker Killer is on the loose. Every lead has run cold and that’s when you step into the picture. Will you become his next victim?

022.thumb.JPG.1593e68c44781dcd57d4c910eda871ca.JPG

Next up, ZOZO. People from all over the world claim to have been visited by the demon ZOZO after a spirit board session. Is the demonic entity known as ZOZO real or are spirit boards just a myth?

023.thumb.JPG.3ec8a4781db1d4c6c46c94cdda83a69b.JPG

The fourth Skeleton Key Room is Prey. In Prey you’ll navigate a hay maze full of dead ends with only a faulty lantern as your guide. And you are not alone - mutant beasts are lurking around every corner.

Finally, here are the new mazes for this year! First up, Black Ops: Infected. Armed with cutting edge laser guns, brave guests will face off against hordes of zombies in the groundbreaking all-new Black Ops: Infected interactive maze. Small units of guests will battle the zombie apocalypse through blood soaked city streets and an underground sewer system crawling with nearly one hundred ravenous zombies. The high tech innovative experience thrusts guests into the middle of a live-action video game complete with live actors, real time scoring system, kill streak rewards system and interactive targets, including a juggernaut boss zombie. The new attraction is one of the largest mazes ever created in Knott’s Scary Farm history, and it will no longer be located in Camp Snoopy as the previous renditions of Black Ops were.

Also new is Shadow Lands...

026.thumb.JPG.976213dce1d10989e49ece0505fa462f.JPG

A fulfilling life ensures a soul safe passage into eternity, but what happens to the souls of soldiers slain in battle? Enter the hair-raising Shadow Lands maze and fight off demon samurais whose souls are cursed to rot within the depths of purgatory. Guests will embark on a quest through a sacred shrine, an ancient Japanese temple and into the midst of the shadow lands.

027.thumb.jpeg.6dc418b521afc42644684cc4a9d6e251.jpeg

Finally, in The Red Barn maze you’ll take a trip to a blood-soaked barn filled with carnivorous animals seeking to prey on human flesh. Legend has it the farmer who owns the barn was transformed into a heinous creature that sends his sadistic sons to ensure his legacy. None dare enter the barn, for those who enter never escape.

^I would assume so, since they weren't mentioned as returning.

 

I'm most intrigued by the Skeleton Key rooms this year. When they had that small mirror maze a few years back, I thought it was fun but just didn't work as a full maze d/t the low capacity. I'm hoping the skeleton key experiences will be 4 things that can match that! Having a scare zone in Camp Snoopy again is great too---the park is full loop again!

Wow, three new mazes! I did like the three that are going away this year, but I'm always so impressed with Knott's for changing it up so much every year. I had a killer time last year, wish I could make it again this year but I have friends who will fill me in. Awesome TR!

 

I'm really glad they're continuing another zombie shooting maze, it was so much fun last year. I loved it in Camp Snoopy, but this new one should be awesome as well! Does anyone know where it's going to be?
