New for Knott’s Berry Farm’s Halloween Haunt 2010:

“Virus Z”: Fiesta Plaza explodes with a brand new zombie nightmare. The virus is out and the end is near… Enter the barricaded town of Pleasanton, where the virus has turned the entire population into ravenous zombies! From the insane mind of Brooke Walters, designer of Doll Factory and Terror of London.


“Sleepy Hollow Mountain”: Ghosts and ghouls, witches and goblins, long-legged beasts and things that go bump in the night…take a dark ride through haunted Sleepy Hollow. The witching hour is at hand and the legends of long ago haunt the living. Specters and witches are on your heels as you try to out run The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow. Can you keep your wits? Or will you lose your head? Brought to you by Haunt Designer, David Ortiz (Dia De Los Muertos)! (Description from Theme Park

We can’t wait to see a few pumpkins and witches, and hopefully a fog-filled graveyard.

Knott’s Halloween Haunt opens on September 24.

The problem here was the lack of monsters on the ride. We counted only 3 the first time we went on it and 4 the 2nd ride. This is a 4.5 minute long ride therefore it averages less than a scare a minute which isn’t good. With this ride you can see that they were banking on the set pieces and atmosphere to sustain the ride but at the end of the night the effect of a good haunt is loss without the presence of monsters terrorizingus through out the ride. 2.5 Skulls […]
