Knotts Scary Farm discount tickets:

Every year, there are several good ways to save money when you visit the Knott's Halloween Haunt.

1.) An easy way is by pre-purchasing your tickets on the Knott's official website. Every year their site has a print-at-home ticket sale when it get close to Haunt time. You can save a substantial sum of money by purchasing your tickets online before the event...rather than waiting until you reach the Knott's ticket booths on the day of the event.

TICKET PRICES CHANGE FROM NIGHT TO NIGHT! It's cheaper to attend on nights that are traditionally slower than on the nights that are usually jam-packed. Some of the cheapest nights this year are the first two weekends (online the tickets are as cheap as $39 to $44.) As it gets closer to Halloween, then Haunt tickets increase in price (from $44 up to $49 online.) Surprisingly, The LAST nights of Knott's Scary Farm...including Halloween night itself...are also some of the cheaper nights (with tickets as low as $39 online.) EXPECT TO PAY $20 TO $26 MORE IF YOU BUY YOUR TICKETS AT THE GATE, depending on which night you'd like to visit.

Haunt Pass! Can't get enough of Knott's Halloween Haunt? Buying the Knott's Berry Farm Pass is a good way to get in cheaper IF you plan to attend 3 or more nights (because the pass costs about the approximate price of admission for 2 evenings.) For $75 (or even cheaper for Knott's season pass holders,) you can go as many nights of the event as you wish! The Knott's pass is available on the park's website, just like the nightly tickets.

Here's a link to the Halloween Haunt ticketing page on the website where you can check ticket prices for the night you plan to attend...or purchase your "24 Nights of Terror" pass.

2.) ARES Travel website: You can also pre-purchase tickets from the ARES Travel website. The ticket prices are basically the same as the Knott's website. Both sites have a "convenience" fee, however. For single tickets, you may come out ahead on the ARES website. For larger orders, then the Knott's site will probably be your best deal (once the convenience fees are added.) Here's a link to the Knott's Berry Farm & Halloween Haunt page of the ARES Travel website.

3.) SUBWAY discount coupons to Knott's Halloween Haunt: Selected locations of Subway sandwich shops are selling special 40 ounce souvenir cups which allow you to get a Knott's Scary Farm discount at the Knott's ticket booths. The exact amount of what you can save depends on the nights you plan to visit, with Fridays and Saturdays generally getting less of a discount than weeknights. You may save up to $28 per ticket, maximum. If you can't find the special cups in your own local Subway shop, try calling a location in Orange County close to the park. Cups will be available through October 31st or while supplies last.

4.) HALLOWEEN CLUB discount coupons for Knott's Scary Farm: Like the Subway special, the Halloween Club coupons will allow you to purchase your tickets on a walk-up basis at the Knott's Berry Farm ticket booths. A limited amount of coupons have been printed, and will be available while supplies last. The Halloween Club's year-round locations in Montebello (I-5 at Garfield) and La Mirada (I-5 @ Valley View) will have these coupons, as well as both locations in Buena Park, plus Artesia, Cerritos, Corona, Mission Viejo, Riverside and Whittier. The Ahs! Gift Stores in Santa Monica, Torrance and West Hollywood will also have the coupons. Please visit the website for the specific location of the Halloween Club or Ahs! store that you'll be visiting.

On the rest of this page, we'll talk about two different Knott's Berry Farm Halloween celebrations: the cute Camp Spooky for kids, and the Knott's Scary Farm for teens & adults. The first half of the page will be about Camp Spooky. For Knott's Halloween Haunt information, please see the 2nd half of this page.

Knotts Halloween -- Knott's Camp Spooky FAQ's

1.) Question: Can kids wear costumes to the Knott's Camp Spooky event? Yes, kids age 11 and under may wear costumes; adults should not wear costumes. One rule for dressing your kids in costume for the Knott's Halloween Party is "keep their faces showing." No masks allowed!

2.) Question: What are the days and hours of the Camp Spooky celebration at Knott's Berry Farm? Answer: Camp Spooky is a weekend-only celebration each October. (There aren't enough crowds mid-week during the fall at Knotts Berry Farm to stage a full-scale event.) Camp Spooky's special events are held on Saturdays and Sundays during October during normal Knott's Berry Farm theme park hours. (Note: a limited number of Halloween fun is available on weekdays, as well. This includes the cute Peanuts Halloween show, the decorations, and special Halloween-themed merchandise.)

3.) Question: Will the kiddie rides be operating? Answer: Yes, many rides will be operating in Camp Spooky, and all stores/restaurants will be in operation, as well. Camp Snoopy offers a wide array of rides...some for "kiddies only," and others for the whole family to enjoy together. If you'd like to see photos of the rides & get details about them (eg. minimum height requirements,) then head to the Knott's Camp Snoopy Rides page of this website. Visitors to Camp Spooky do not have to remain in that area of the park; they may head to any ride or attraction at Knotts Berry Farm that they wish to enjoy.

Answer: The Camp Spooky events come included with the price of general admission to the Knott's Berry Farm theme park. So, you may enjoy all events without paying any extra fees!

If you have a child with an October birthday, this is a great time to hold a Knott's Berry Farm birthday celebration. You can find out reserving the Camp Snoopy party room (in the Lucy's Lunchbox Restaurant) and other details about the Knott's birthday packages on the Knotts Berry Farm Birthday Parties page of this website.

5.) Question: What Snoopy and Peanuts Character Halloween Merchandise is available at Knotts? Answer: Peanuts and Snoopy fans will be in 7th heaven during Halloween time at Knotts. Both the Peanuts character store in Camp Snoopy AND the Snoopy Store (just outside the theme park's gates in the California Marketplace; no park admission needed) feature absolutely charming Halloween items...such as the Snoopy Halloween stuffed animal you see in the photo to your right. The Camp Snoopy store inside the park seems to "sell out" faster than the Snoopy store outside the main gates. Always check both stores to discover the biggest selection!

Knott's Halloween Haunt...AKA

Knott's Scary Farm!

In the slide show above, you're viewing pictures of Knotts Scary Farm's Halloween Haunt. If you enjoy pictures of scary Knotts monsters, you may view still MORE Knott's Haunt pictures on our Knotts Scary Farm Pictures and our Knotts Halloween Haunt Pictures, pt 2 pages.

Knott's Scary Farm is one of Southern California's scariest Halloween events. In fact, it's the oldest and longest continuously-running theme park Halloween event in the USA! Knott's Haunt has more haunted houses than other theme parks, more decorations, more monsters and more operating dates than other comparable events you've attended elsewhere.

One of Knott's Scary Farm's greatest strengths is its legion of monsters and scare-actors. The actors' makeup and costumes are still individualized here; no teams of characters all dressed and acting alike. (How can monsters be scary if they're outfitted as uniformly as a football team?)

Many of Knott's Scary Farm's actors appear year after year and develop their characters further with each passing year. Sure, the park may be full of blood 'n guts...but there's still nothing scarier than a truly unsuspected "Boo!" And, the Knott's scare-actors make that happen!

Knott's Haunt is be prepared!

Picture of skeleton decorating Knott's Berry Farm Theme Park for HalloweenEven if you don't scare easily, the 1 to 2 hour waits for mazes and roller coasters at Knott's Scary Farm are enough to make you shriek with fright! Fighting your way through wall-to-wall crowds will raise the hair on your heads!

Just joking...well, sort of. The Knott's folks put on a darned good show for lovers of the macabre...and it's VERY well attended. Trying to enjoy Knott's Halloween Haunt on a Friday or Saturday evening is like trying to enjoy Disneyland on a midsummer's day---a bit daunting.

How to beat the crowds: Try to go on a Wednesday, Thursday or Sunday (the crowds are a bit thinner.) Arrive early (at opening time) and/or stay late...because the crowds do take awhile to build up, and the crowds sometimes dwindle a bit before closing time. Another way to enjoy a less-crowded experience is to go to Knott's Scary Farm several weeks before Halloween. The closer it gets to Halloween Night, the more the crowds build up. Also, lines for the Knott's parking lot can be horrible, too. Parking lines and park entrance lines can eat away at the the time you have available for attractions. You may begin to park as early as you'd like for no additional parking fee. (After all, Knotts Berry Farm is open all day during its "regular," non-scary hours of operation.)
