Trick or Treats Lights Out: Are you afraid of the dark? You will be. Armed with only a faulty flashlight, explore the creepy house at the end of the street.
Dark Ride: If clowns are not your thing to bad! Journey through an abandoned carnival ride helplessly surrounded by clowns without a way out. Sounds cozy!

New Mazes for 2018. As we bid Tooth Fairy and Voodoo farewell, we welcome 2 new mazes this year, The Depths and Dark Entities. In The Depths maze, you the guests will serve as first responders in search for lost miners. This all new maze will include water elements, feature the use of rock formations, fog and creative lighting all to simulate the feeling of being in a dark , damp cavern. An all new challenge and element for the Scary Farm maze that designers faced was the addition of a moving 30' room, all to create the ultra-real sensation you are truly descending down into The Depths!
Dark Entities takes you within a top secret installation with a mission to investigate an anomaly found within deep space. This new immersive maze is unique with it's self lit sets in addition to spatial lighting. This very ambitious installation will boast the most controllable lighting any Knott's maze has had to date. Prosthetic makeup, as apposed to 2 dimensional, will demonstrate the different levels of mutation as the occupants experience the full effects of their infection by their uninvited extra terrestrial guest. Full body costumes have been created as well to complete the the overall look and realism of this new and out of this world maze.
As for the the returning mazes, many have been one up'ed creating a different experience than last year. Paranormal Inc. has a redesigned finale scene that will have everyone screaming out the door in terror. Expect a new Special Ops: Infected finale room and yes, more zombies! Red Barn will feature a new opening scene as well as new scenes throughout. Trick Or Treats: Lights Out offers new effects and some surprises you will have to discover on your own! Lastly, Pumpkin Eater has added two new creatures keeping many of the returning mazes fresh for returning Scary Farm fans while adhering to their roots.
NEW Foresaken Lake: This new unearthly scare zone is making its sinister arrival to the park underneath the Silver Bullet. Bare witness as it reveals the horrors and creatures it’s kept hidden until now. Forsaken Lake unleashes gothic creatures which have been ravaged by the dark and murky waters. Beware as they wander their crypts preying on unsuspecting visitors, for you too might become subject to joining them in their watery graves.
