What is Spooky Farm
Enjoy the spooktacular Halloween season at Knott’s Spooky Farm, a family-friendly Halloween celebration geared for kids ages 3-11. Families can join in on the ghoulish fun by participating in safe, interactive activities throughout the park. This year, new charming photo opportunities greet guests as they enter the Main Gate, a perfect way to ignite everyone’s Halloween spirit. Guests of all ages can learn about the creepy crawly critters occupying the livery stable in Ghost Town. Now with an expanded trick-or-treating experience, little ghouls can stop by the town’s shops and buildings to collect sweet treats from the friendly Ghost Town Ghouls. Calico Park offers families the opportunity to personalize miniature jack-o-lanterns or decorate a scrumptious cookie for a festive Halloween treat. Fun Halloween-themed shows are also in store as a friendly magician mystifies little ones with spell-binding magic tricks at Calico Saloon, or young gals and ghouls can participate in the interactive spooky story time offered at the Birdcage Theatre. The Camp Snoopy Theater plays host to the “Monsters are Coming” kids show where children are encouraged to brew-up their perfect Halloween costumes for the Knott’s Spooky Farm Costume Contest. Also at Camp Snoopy, families can hop aboard the Grand Sierra Railroad to experience a one-of-kind adventure as riders travel to Camp Spooky with the PEANUTS gang® and spot fun surprises along the way.
