On Sunday, July 31, the creative team of the 44th annual world-renowned event, Knott’s Scary Farm, hosted a special panel at the first annual weekend-long Midsummer Scream Halloween Festival in Long Beach, California. Over 1,000 passionate Scary Farm fans attended the panel where it was revealed that for the first time ever, Knott’s Scary Farm will feature standalone Skeleton Key Rooms that are separate experiences from the mazes when you purchase the Fright Lane with Skeleton Key. The four terrifying new Skeleton Key Rooms will each feature a unique story and theme delivering unparalleled scares, interactive secrets and other blood-curling surprises:
Visions: Guests must bravely investigate the Green Witch Museum in Ghost Town where it is not the building that is eerily haunted, but the mystic items enclosed within. Using a Phantom Finder augmented reality device guests will be able to identify and witness paranormal activity connected to artifacts from the Sarah Marshall Witch Trial.
ZOZO: People from all over the world claim to have been visited by the Ouija demon ZOZO after a spirit board session. Is the demonic entity known as ZOZO real or are spirit boards just a myth?
Slasher: Guests are invited to step into a blood filled 80s’ slasher horror film. The masked Angel Maker Killer is on the loose. Every lead has run cold and that’s when you step into the picture. Will you become his next victim?
Prey: Navigate a wicked hay maze packed with dead ends while equipped with only a faulty lantern as your guide. You are not alone. Mutant beasts are released to prey upon wandering visitors, the only way out is by facing your worst nightmares.
Fright Lane with Skeleton Key allows the holder priority access to all mazes plus ONE time access to the four exclusive standalone Skeleton Key Rooms. Separate theme park admission is required and not included.
The team also revealed that last year’s groundbreaking Paranormal Inc. maze will return to Knott’s Scary Farm this year. Featuring high flying aerial stunts and scares, guests investigate a haunted hospital where the patients were tortured for decades by deranged doctors and nurses. Demonic spirits of the murdered victims have been detected throughout the mysterious halls, while evil medical staff prowl for new patients to torture.
Knott’s Scary Farm returns for 24 horrifying nights from September 22 – October 31 with a thousand monsters lurking in the fog. Whatever you’re imagining, it’s here…at Knott’s Scary Farm.
