Six new mazes and the return of Elvira
Knott’s Berry Farm will add six new haunted mazes for Halloween Haunt 2013 and bring back Elvira Mistress of the Dark for her first show at the Buena Park theme park in more than a decade.
The 41st annual Knott’s Scary Farm will start Sept. 26 and run on select nights through Nov. 2.
The granddaddy of Halloween events will feature 12 mazes, six shows and four scare zones scattered throughout the theme park.
Knott’s has made the wise decision to trim the quantity of its mazes in favor of quality as Halloween Haunt continues to compete with Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood, which has delivered an increasingly superior haunted event in recent years.
