Knott’s Scary Farm 2015 Announcement (Pictures + Video)

Ever since I can remember I have loved Halloween. Everything about it from the dressing up, the horror movie marathons on television, and everything magically becoming pumpkin flavored has been truly special to me.

When I was eleven I found out about Knott’s Scary Farm. I almost couldn’t believe it, one of my favorite theme parks at night transformed into a huge haunted house? A place where scenes from scary movies and stories that I loved became real life and I could experience them? I begged my mother to take me to this magical place! Well, little eleven year old Giselle got her wish. I’ll never forget how much fun I had and new love for my favorite time of year was born. Also, major props to my mom for staying up until 2am so her weird kid could pretend she was in a scary movie.

Halloween! Universal Studios Halloween Horror Night 2013

HHN 2013

Once again, I found myself at Halloween Horror Night in Hollywood and I’ve already gone to the park twice this year (once with the girls and once with my boyfriend!). Universal Studios’ haunt is always all around top-notch quality in production. Not surprising since they are an actual working movie studio with access to props and make-up. This year’s mazes includes Insidious, The Evil Dead, Black Sabbath 13, El Cucuy, Monster Remix and The Walking Dead. We had a lot of fun this year although I can’t say that this was my most memorable experience at HHN.

Halloween! Knott’s Scary Farm 2013

Knott's Scary Farm 2013

Knott’s Scary Farm Haunt prides itself as one of the first — if not THE first — theme parks to go all out during Halloween in Southern California. They have been around for more than a decade since I remembered my own mother taking me to the park on a Halloween (possibly one of their first years as Knott’s Scary) when I was barely a tween and getting scared to death! When Scarlettburn and I went this year, I had wondered out loud why a parent would agree to take an impressionable child to the park. It wasn’t until I was laughing hysterically at the reactions of a group of kids chaperoned by their own parents inside one of the mazes that I understood why. It’s kind of funny to see terrified children and it’s possibly a nice little revenge for making our parents’ lives a constant hell. . . but everyone has their fun in the end, so why not!
