Halloween Haunt

This Thursday marks the first night of Knott’s Scary Farm for 2006.

Does that ever bring back memories. Although I lived in LA County, it was on the South Eastern side, so trips to Orange County were almost easier than trips to Los Angeles proper. I will try not to date myself too badly, but when I was in high school, you just were not cool if you didn’t go. They didn’t have nearly as many nights as they do now, and there was a mad scramble to get tickets before they sold out. And of course, the closer to Halloween the better.

I also got to attend before they implemented the “no touching” rule, and one of the best memories I have of Knott’s Scary Farm was when we were walking through the ghost town and a guy dressed as a creepy something or other actually jumped down from a tree and grabbed my ankle. Scared the crap out of me, as I was not expecting anybody to jump out of a frickin’ tree.

I think they are more production heavy now, and even though I haven’t been in over 15 years (uh, I just dated myself, didn’t I?) it still sounds like it could be fun.

    Though I know its not in OC, Universal puts on a great show! (at least they used to) The last time I was there (4/5 years ago), they were still touching too! Its a nice change if you’ve only been to Knott’s.
