Today we wish a very scary and happy birthday to our favorite goth gal, Elvira!

As our Haunt Stalkers know, we love Elvira and have been big fans since she first made her big impressions on the 80’s boob tube with her infamous Movie Macabre TV series. Elvira has had an enduring career in the horror and haunt worlds and the ageless Mistress of the Dark has no signs of laying down on the retirement couch yet (at least in the face down position). This year she continues her reign as the Queen of the park after dark at Knott’s Scary Farm as she returns to titillate and frolic all over the stage. And she’s doing a show too, which always gets the crowd’s blood pumping.

She always gives it all up in her spooky Vegas style variety shows that fully mounds… rounds out the Knott’s Haunt entertainment experiences. In past years she also had  her own Knott’s Scary Farm mazes– Elvira’s Nightmares and Elvira’s Red Moon Massacre – a haunted log ride (her favorite kind of ride). There’s also a 3D Elvira stimulation… simulation ride call Superstition that can be found at other theme park haunts across the country.

Elvira’s looking great and we appreciate that she’s continues to provide scares, fun, and so much love to the Horror and Haunt community. Now we just hope we can get to see more of her… on the boob tube again.
