Just Published: Theme Park Insider: 2016 Year in Review
Does anyone have info on anything? House themes, house locations, stuff like that. If you're not allowed by Knott's to reveal this stuff I understand.
And Blood Bayou going has been pretty well known for a while. As much as I loved BB, I'm excited to see what new maze replaces it.
Hey, a while back you said you were emailing Knott's about maze info. Any reply?
I don't even think she answered my question about the maze descriptions and logos
Oh well, mid-September is only about two weeks away.
Without further hesitation, here they are:
Two new mazes:
-13 Murder Manor (Mystery Lodge) Replacing Blood Bayou - A once grand Victorian Mansion that now lies condemned and restricted from inhabitants. The gruesome axe murders that took place there have left the house brimming with disgruntled spirits intent on seeking vengeance on the living. Enter at your own risk.
-Feary Tales in 3D (GhostRider 2) Out backstage next to where Asylum was last year - The stories mommy and daddy never told you! Aesop and Grimm would run for their lives were they to venture into these 3D twisted tales of terror.
As well as Calico Mine Ride's new title:
Cavern of the Lost Souls - Prepare to meet the same fate as the poor miners who discovered this abandoned silver mine. This eerie cavern becomes an endless abyss that may rob you of your very soul.
Unfortuantely, the mine ride doesn't seem to have changed. Notice how it says, Calico Mine Ride's new title. Not new theme. New title. Hopefully more then just that changed.
RED MOON MASSACRE - Those lovable lupines have filled the Timber Mountain Log Ride once again and are ready to bark at the moon - the red moon. Hold on to your loved ones and keep your hands inside the log as you careen through the pitch-black tunnels and race down flumes as you're attacked from all sides by creatures of the night.
This ain't some Zip-A-Dee-Do-Dah ride.
LORE OF THE VAMPIRE - Being sucked has never felt so good. One of the most popular mazes at Halloween Haunt, Lore of the Vampire returns once again as the home of the sensual, crazed and absolutely wicked vampires of Knott's Scary Farm. Travel into the realm of the underworld as these vamps hiss and kiss at you from the darkened shadows.
Bow down to the mighty Queen and stay a while in Club Blood, the vampires' very own party playground. In fact, stay forever...
13 AXE MURDER MANOR - Some little crazed chick picked up herself an axe. Some little crazy chick dealt out 40 whacks. And now, the Haunt invites you into a brand-new maze for the Scary Farm. Lucky 13 is the address - you will find it listed in the darkest, most vile parts of your imagination.
Come, kick up your feet and rest. Take off your shoes, take off your coat. And the residents of the Manor will take off the rest for you. Piece by piece.
HATCHET HIGH - Those pesky kids! Come on back to the ultimate rock 'n roll high school once again as the boys and girls raise hell and shake their pompoms only the way they can at Knott's! Visit the science lab - trying not to become the main experiment. Visit the cafeteria - and try not to become the main course. Take a shower in the locker room - and try not to drop the soa... er, try not to become the football team's practice dummy.
Oh, and the prom. You are going, so dress up! The Prom Queen's expecting a special dance with you when you arrive...
CARNIVAL OF CARNIVOROUS CLOWNS (3D) - Those clowns, those clowns, those clowns! Big, tall, massive, small - we love 'em all! Come one, come all to the big top to witness the most insane, sick and twisted clowns to ever roam the Scary Farm. You'll laugh and cry - you'll puke your guts and pee your pants as the funny folks in clown white dance, dance, dance!
All of the madness and mayhem is waiting for you, dear fan! So STEP RIGHT UP!
CAVERN OF LOST SOULS - Hop aboard the Calico Mine Train and travel deep into a nightmare. Witness a collection of the most tormented souls Ghost Town has to offer!
There be some nasty spirits waiting for each train load of fresh victims, so ALL ABOARD! Hold on to them hats and glasses, because this here's the spookiest ride in the wilderness!
RED BEARD'S REVENGE - Pssssst! Avast there! It be too late to alter course, matey! Here there be pirates lurking in every cove, waitin' to slit your throat like a pig! A pirates life is full of adventure, danger and plundering. Too bad you're on the receiving end of it all!
One of the most lavish mazes at Halloween Haunt, check out all of the swashbuckling horror these brigands have to offer. Just heed this final warning... dead men... well, dead men are dead, and that sucks.
THE ASYLUM - Hellllo, nurse! Welcome to a walk on the wild side. Okay, a walk on the completely nuts side of life - and death - in one of the most popular mazes in Haunt history. Tucked away in the shadow of GhostRider is a condemned facility where the crazed lurk in the halls, struggle to break free of their restraints and lust for human interaction of the darkest kind. And that's just the Knott's Administration Office!
Tighten that straight jacket and step into the darkness of this most terrifying experience that defines pure terror. You'll be safe, though... the voices would never lie, because they love you...
CURSE OF THE SPIDER - Ah, those itsy-bitsy spiders! They crawled up the water spout, multiplied and grew since last Haunt. Now they are awake, very hungry and more aggressive than ever!
You don't know the meaning of "arachnophobia" until you've braved the dark passageways and web-choked corridors of this popular Scary Farm maze. What's that hiding in the darkness up ahead? Or behind you, above you or underneath your feet? Why not reach out and check for yourself... your two legs can certainly run faster than their eight, right? Wrong.
TERROR VISION (3D) - TV programming has never been so bloody good! Change the channels and see what's on the boob tube! Unhappy Days are here again, good friends! Hang on to that remote (if it gets too intense, just change the channel - and pray for a kiddie show), as it may be the only thing that saves your butt in this virtual mess of chaos and terror.
Come spend some time in television land... just don't get so frightened that you lay your own cable!
FEARY TALES (3D) - Welcome one and all! Y'all come have a ball here at the home of the sickest collection of children's stories-gone-Haunt! Old Mother Goose (or was it Noose) never told you this version of your favorite kiddie tales...
Now the book's finally open and waiting for you to step on in. Everyone likes a dead time story, right? Curl up in bed, pull the covers up tight and pray to God the candle doesn't burn out, or else you will be lost forever in the darkest corners of your childhood fears...
JAGUAR - TEMPLE OF SACRIFICE - Deep inside the ruins of the ancient pyramid in Fiesta Village is a terror beyond comprehension. No, not the roller coaster at Jaguar (although the fact that people actually want to ride Jag is pretty freakin' scary), but rather, its queue, which takes on a life (death) of its own each October!
Can you make it alive past the monsters that lurk in the shadows, seeking human flesh for sacrifice (not virgin - that would be pushing it a bit far when it comes to the Haunt crowd). Watch your step - this chilling little "scare experience" packs a mean punch!
Whatever, the new ones are all anyone wanted anyway.
Nicholas, do you have a pic of yourself in costume, as Kritter? I want to try to find you at Haunt. And what section do you work in?
I need to find some pictures.
I'll have to pick up some of the Burger King coupons. One question about those. Do they work if you're doing the VIP Pre-Scare Dinner?
Oh, and according to themeparkadventure.com this year's Hanging title is, The Happiest Hanging on Earth.
Can't decided whether to go on Sunday the 23rd or Wednesday the 26th. Do you think Wed will be less crowded that Sun? There are so many mazes, we want to have time to hit them all!
I found one on eBay that's about $16 off on the days I'd like to go, but curious if BK has a better deal. (I'd rather not make a stop to BK on my vacation unless it's really worthwhile!)
The thing with the BK discounts is they differ by night. You get more off on some nights then on others. You should look into them though. I use the BK ones every year.
I heard rehearsals went awesome. Supposedly Feary Tales is the best maze this year.
I think Feary Tales was a bust. No good 3D affects, making the whole maze well-lit for no purpse. It also sucked because I wanted to pay a second trip to the Assylum, but the lines are connected.
I was also hoping for a new ride in the Dinosaur ride. They could have easily added or adapted scenery to the now vacant building and made another fun ride for the Haunt.
I also found the Hanging to be less witty than usual. A lot more random fights instead of funny segways.
I am going back again on Saturday with free tickets. (My girlfriend and her friend got food poisening at the sub place out front.) Hopefully it will be more lively.
I used to get people to stop for photos by shouting "Stop right there that's fabulous!" while copying the voice of Robin Leach. But as I've been unable to find anyone to confirm or deny my friend's comment that they parodied me(either by video clips or other, unbiased witnesses).
