Knott’s Berry Farm is home to the first, largest and longest running Halloween celebration in the world. The headlining event is Knott’s Halloween Haunt, which is geared towards those ages 13 and up. Snoopy’s Costume Party is perfect for younger kids.

Held on 28 terrifying nights, Knott’s Halloween Haunt is made up of 13 mazes, seven shows, four scare zones and 1,000 roaming monsters. Want a hint of what to expect? The “Terror of London” maze takes you back in time to foggy London where you are walking amongst infamous characters like Jack the Ripper. Knott’s well loved Ghost Town is the scene of a new scare zone this year—featuring “Gypsy Camp” complete with howling werewolves. If you stick around the Gypsy Camp area, you can catch the new show “Cursed” with magic, hypnotism and dancers.
