Thank goodness, I thought I was crazy for a second for seeing the 'in'. Phew
Time Zombies has been officially added
Time Zombies | Scary Farm Attractions | Knott's Scary Farm
Even with all my cynicism, I never thought Red Barn II: Gunslingerz Grave would be a possible thing in this day and age. Just take two of the worst mazes of the last decade and just mash 'em together because... budget?
That's just legitimately awful
I really enjoy some of Gus’ stuff, but why take the worst aspects and put them together? Like, dark Entities was my favorite maze last year (The depths was probably the best, but personal preference and all), and his storytelling got way stronger, but, just, ugh, why?
Shadowlands & Special Ops are both being retired this year. However, @Midsummer Night Scream, Special Ops & Dark Ride are both getting two new rooms and new monsters.
Special Ops: Convience Store w/ themed zombie & Meat house w/ themed zombie
Dark Ride: Security/Surveillance Room & Gift Shop (at the end) w/ inept employee. New monster: warped Baby that was raised by the clowns.
I think they could keep Paranormal Inc., but they need to change the story. But I also think this will be the last year, especially with the Ghost Town expansion from Ghost Rider's double gates to the double gates by the Birdcage Theater.
Looks like Halloween Hootenanny was also added to the experiences list on the site.
That's legitimately a huge assumption considering the size of the new section they are building outside of the dance hall (which neither RB or GG had), and it's called Gunslingerz Revenge.
Even then I think calling the new maze Red Barn II feels really cheap and uninspired
*Stares in Trick or treat lights out*
If you're just talking about the name being boring, not sure what else they could have called it that conveyed it was the same maze, but a little different haha.
IMO, Trick or Treat's updated "lights out" version was awesome. It took a maze that was getting tired and breathed new life into it. The explore-the-haunted-house thing is never not a cool idea and the flashlight's tech kept it unique.
I always liked Trick or Treat anyway because it felt very traditionally Halloween and that overlay only added to it for me.
The Red Barn II name just sounds like a play on horror movies to me.
Trick or Treat lights out was dope, but it just sounds like a Hellraiser sequel. Hellraiser xiv: LIGHTS OUT
I hear ya. I think they just needed to make a name that general audiences would understand easily haha.
The Depths | Scary Farm Attractions | Knott's Berry Farm
The Depths is 100% coming back
Well that about does it until tomorrow night's event. Looking forward to seeing the new show announcement and two new mazes!
Speaking of, who here will be there tomorrow?
I will be there. I do believe there is a livestream of the event as well.
I will also be there and hopefully (If the connection is good) be live tweeting about it on my Twitter.
I wonder how (forgot his name) will react when people boo at the red barn gunslinger crossover lol. Still baffles me why they made the decision. I mean I get budget is a thing but there were still better options.
Separate names with a comma.
