As Knotts Scary Farm is one of our favorite adult traditions, we couldn't wait. The new Special Ops: Infected zombie killing area was what we were looking forward to the most! We are big Walking Dead fans so getting the chance to do shoot zombies was right up our alley!
When you arrive at Knotts Scary Farm, go directly to the Infected: Special Ops areas (there are 2 Alpha and Bravo in Camp Snoopy) to sign up for your reservation. Hurry because the spots fill up fast! If my calculations are right, only about 1000 people a night can experience it.
We were briefed in our mission to run through to the hospital to save the scientist and any other survivors and find supplies. After we were supplied with our weapons(laser tag guns on steroids), we started in. Immediately we were surrounded and it was a fast 15 minute frenzy through the Infected area!
We were given the option to purchase photos of our victorious teams and we were off to find the mazes.
Frightlane/Skeleton Key Pass/Mazes
If you have ever been to Knott's Scary Farm, you would have noticed long lines which prevented you from experiencing all 10 of the mazes for lack of time. Knotts has solved this problem. I highly recommend purchasing the tickets with the Skeleton Key/Frightlane pass!
This pass gives front of line access with special access to hidden rooms with one on one interactions with the haunts.
Don't forget the shows when you go. The Hanging is a MUST! It always has my sides hurting as they make fun of the latest and (not-so)greatest head-line news. Although, this year was "almost" cancelled due to the oversensitive American population, the characters on stage overcame their diversity and put on a spectacular show!
We had a fabulous rare date night and we are already talking about what night we can get a babysitter to come again before it ends!
- Eat before you come so you can maximize scare time
- Purchase the Frightlane/ Skeleton Key tickets to get front of line access(lines are LONG without it!)
- Immediately get your Infected: Special Ops reservation as soon as you get in
- Bring someone to hold onto in the fog of Ghost Town! I almost got lost and found by the undead!
- Bring friends! Go as a group and be scared together.
