Knotts scary farm is awesome so much talent!! I just can't express enough tough if you go try to enjoy your self..quit messing with the monsters or touching them they are trying to have fun to but they are doing their jobs...let's everyone act like adults and be respectful!! If you can't handle alcohol don't drink if people keep messing around that one person is going to ruin it for everyone

As a longtime regular, I have seen Scary Farm through all of the changes and I can say you guys have continued to up your game and provide a great experience!! THANK YOU!!! Great job this year! As a suggestion or observation from going almost nightly......need to pulse guests through mazes just a little better, several times in various mazes we were being hearded or hustled very quickly to the point we didnt have the chance to take in the environment and all the great set designs and many times we would miss the scare moment or "special moment" because the scare actors hadnt had enough time to reset yet. The other issue was lack of consistency, some nights on Dark Entities the maze was almost empty and void of any scare actors or special gotcha moments, on another night everything was spot on with fog, actors going all out and all the gags and gotchas timed perfectly. Someone coming to Haunt for one night only and experiencing these less than stellar moments could qalk away thinking Scary Farm isnt all that great. Need consistency throughout. Other than that, we had a blast night after night

Wow this year came and went so fast. Luckily I got a chance to visit the haunt 3 times...but 3 times w asnt enough. I have to say knotts stepped it up a ton from the last few years. My hats off to all the actors and maze designers. A+ from me.

I’d love for like a few weeks after or so you could do behind the scenes tours of the mazes and stuff. That stuff interest me. I’m not sure of the demand but I’d love to see all the robotics on some of the monsters and the details up close.
