Previously, I wrote about many theme park Halloween celebrations being cancelled such as, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, and Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Orlando. Today I am sad to announce that due to the spike in coronavirus cases, Knott’s Berry Farm announced that they will not be hosting the Knott’s Scary Farm Halloween Haunt celebration in 2020.
The Knott’s Vice President shared an important update in this statement:
“Regrettably, due to continued restrictions related to the pandemic, we have had to make the very difficult decision to cancel our highly anticipated 2020 Knott’s Scary Farm event. The unique features of Scary Farm will not allow us to operate within the constraints recommended by the CDC and public health experts. We know that this news is disappointing, but we look forward with great enthusiasm to making 2021 Knott’s Scary Farm our best year ever.”
Knott’s Scary Farm is a similar fashion to other Halloween events at different theme parks. This event uses horror-themed mazes with scare characters to that come close to theme parks guests to create more of a scary atmosphere. However, this is not possible because all parties have to stay within 6 feet apart from each other.
Even though Knott’s Berry Farm had made this decision, doesn’t mean that all the fans of this event should get discouraged right away! They had made this cancellation to protect and save thousands, if not millions of guests lives. But hopefully we will be seeing a better outcome in the near future!
