To some people, being scared can be entertainment to them but for others, can be something they are not interested in. For those who are want to scream of fear, Knott's Scary Farm is the place to go.
Knott's Scary Farm is a Halloween themed event located in the Buena Park. It's mostly known as Knott’s Berry Farm that starts from September 24 to October 31st. This event came out on October 26, 1973 and will hit its 43rd year this year. This event consists of 11 mazes, three scare zones, and 1,000 creeping creatures scattered throughout the park. The creators of Knott’s Scary Farm are George Condos, Martha Boyd, Bill Hollingshed, and Gary Salisbury.
The reason why they do this annual event is to scare anyone who dares to enter their gates. It’s described as “160 acres of Halloween horror,” by a blog, Surf and Sunshine.
Some people think that Knott's is a waste of time: “ I don't want to go to Knott's, it seems like a waste of money just for people to scare you and enter mazes,” said Juan M. Navarrete a parent of a former student at Samueli Academy.
Others think the opposite about wanting to go to Knott’s Scary Farm.“ I like to be scared, the rides look better because of the horror design,” said Enrique Espitia, a freshman at Samueli Academy.
People have gone to Knott’s and didn’t like it.“ I don’t get scared easily and their costumes looked unreal,” said Daisy Lopez, a freshman student at Samueli Academy.
The three scare zones at the park either have clowns, the Mexican skeletons, or the Western monsters that are all located in different sections of the park.The clowns’ zone was a favorite from the fourth person interviewed, but some thought that the Mexican skeletons, and western monsters were one of best parts out of all: “ Clowns are fun.” said Daisy Lopez.
“Their masks looked sick.” said Ulises Garcia a freshman at Samueli Academy.
