Knott's Scary Farm - Buena Park

It probably comes as no surprise to anyone that someone who writes a blog like OC Oddities might watch a pretty good amount of Travel Channel. Thus, I expect no gasps of disbelief when I reveal to you that this post was inspired by some couch time in front of everyone's favorite shameless plug channel on the Discovery Network.

Recently a show aired detailing the scariest Halloween attractions in the United States. You can hold your heads a little higher, my dear OC friends, because your county is home to one of the Travel Channel's top picks: Knott's Scary Farm.

For about $50, you can have the pants scared right off of you by over 1,000 actors in stage makeup and masks who love nothing more than to see you jump into the arms of an unsuspecting passerby from fright. You can also enjoy one of the delightful mazes with such names as Cornstalkers, the Slaughterhouse, Club Blood, Killer Clown Kollege, Axe Murder Manor, and Alien Annihilation! Described as a "160 acre horror movie" by the amusement park's MySpace, Knott's Scary Farm is guaranteed to have you in tears of either laughter or terror. Care to see which?
