Knott's Scary Farm
Knott's Berry Farm
Are you ready to be scared? Berry, berry scared? The normally happy Knott’s is transformed from a family favorite to a fearful frightfest with a terrifying number of attractions. There are ten specialty mazes with creepy names such as “Pinocchio Unstrung” and “Uncle Willy’s Slaughter House.” There are shows like “Elvira’s Sinema Séance," “Atmosfear," a steam punk and vampire-themed “Necropolis” and the Knott’s Boardwalk “CarnEVIL,” clown freak show. A reservations-only specialty maze, “Trapped: The New Experience,” offers extra in-your-face scares and mind-bending puzzles. Special Fright Lane with Skeleton Key passes allow thrill-seekers to skip the lines and unlock additional rooms and special scares in select mazes as many times as they want, all night long!

Halloween Horror Nights
Universal Studios Hollywood
From the movie company that invented the horror film genre comes an immersive event like no other. The urban movie sets on the back lot are debuting as the backdrop for a particularly realistic night of terror. Isolated cityscapes with scenes from AMC’s hit series “The Walking Dead” and a “nightmarish landscape of doom” inspired by Black Sabbath’s recent number one album “13” will have you running for safety and begging for it to stop. You can ride on the Terror Tram, stumble around through darkened mazes in themed scare zones such as “Bride of Chucky” and “Scarecrowz,” as wandering zombies and ax murderers will have you on edge all night and screaming with terror! If it gets to be too scary you can lighten things up a bit with “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure” live (or living dead) show. A limited number of “Front of the Line” passes are sold each night if you want to be first to be terrified, and “VIP Experience: The Insidious Experiment” tickets are also sold offering dinner, drinks, valet parking, participation in a paranormal investigation and front of the line privileges. Arriving early is recommended and masks and costumes are prohibited. Not recommended for children 13 and under.
