Knott’s Berry Farm Announces Major Enhancements Celebrating Ghost Town’s 75th Anniversary

Ghost Town 75th LogoIn 2016, Knott’s Berry Farm’s Ghost Town will celebrate its 75th anniversary with two major offerings next summer.  The centerpiece of the summer 2016 celebration is the interactive entertainment experience, Ghost Town Alive!, which immerses guests in new stories and adventures in the familiar town of Calico. The west is about to get even wilder when GhostRider returns from a major restoration project with all new trains that will gallop along over 4,500 feet of new wooden track.

In summer 2016, Ghost Town Alive! will allow guests young and young at heart to live the west through inventive new ways to interact with characters and environments as each day, a different story will unfold throughout all of Ghost Town.  From pledging one’s allegiance to notorious bandits, to saving the day alongside courageous cowboys, guests play an active role in shaping the events of the day.  Every evening, the day’s story culminates with a town wide celebration of 75 years of Calico.

Okay – perhaps it’s not so dramatic; and to be honest, fans get just as excited reading that makeup and wardrobe operations have commenced in the early afternoon hours backstage in the fabled Warehouse P at Knott’s, and techs are making last-minute checks on fog machine juice and lighting inside the mazes and scare zones as media assembles for the opening night of Knott’s Scary Farm in Buena Park! That’s exactly what transpired on the evening of September 24th; for Theme Park Adventure, it continued our 21st year covering the granddaddy of all Halloween events (the first event being the 2015 Scary Farm preview in August).

Knott’s Scary Farm Street Monsters 2013

In 1973 at Knott’s Scary Farm, a new breed of talent was born – street monsters. Not confined to the rooms and corridors of mazes, or waiting in the peek-ins that line Ghost Town, this new type of scare tactic was unleashed on unsuspecting guests in the 1970s, and became a cornerstone of not just Knott’s Scary Farm, but haunted attractions and events everywhere.
