There are three new mazes this year, and one new scare zone. From the press release:
In the deep recesses of the mind, on the clouded brink of insanity, lies the hellish wasteland of delirium; a place so gruesome that your imagination fails to comprehend the horrors. Illusion and paranoia are your only anchors to reality. Welcome to your worst nightmare!
Details are sketchy but eyewitnesses report that the Calico Mine Ride has been invaded by creatures of unknown origin through a large fissure in the earth’s core. The creatures posses advanced weaponry and are extremely hostile. The military has just infiltrated the mountain to try and rescue the survivors and combat the violent attacks. Stay tuned.
ENDGAMES: Warriors of the Apocalypse
The world as we know it has ended. The survivors in this barren desert have scavenged to rebuild society. The rich and the powerful have turned all others into slaves for sport. Enter the post apocalyptic arena where gladiators are forced to battle to their deaths for entertainment. Are you game?
Halloween Haunt at Knott's Berry Farm debuts this year on Friday, September 23 and runs for a total of 27 nights.
That being said, there is so much variety at Knott's that it's hard to be critical.
Everyone has their own tastes and theme preferences, and the sheer amount of mazes mean most people leave happy.
I go every year, along with Universal and a few other Halloween events.
I know it's common sense, but fear factor all comes down to luck in your line draw.
For my two cents though, I love the old feel of Terror of London. I know some people don't enjoy it for scare factor, but I really do marvel at its set design. I think it's pretty cool.
