the ghost wrote:Ouch. In my opinion ( No oggence to any scaractors/ SFMM employees) The knotts mazes are much more elaborate( although they are more expensive) There are also thirteen mazes each one being different. Also knotts has a lot more actors and shows so the upcharge makes a lot of sense.
I think your comparison is also completley unfair and invalid. Knott's charges about $50 for the event. Fright Fest is included free with your admission plus $5 for the mazes.
So do you really think the $5 event *should* compare to the $50 event? C'mon!
Personally I've been to Knott's Haunt many many times over the past 25 years (yes, I was there when Weird Al played in 1986) and I personally do not feel that the mazes at Haunt are *THAT* much better than the mazes at Fright Fest.
I would say Knott's usually has one or two "stand out" mazes, and the rest of them are just your basic well put together, fun haunted house not that much different than Fright Fest's offerings.
As far as So Cal Halloween events go, if you're going to compare anything to Knott's, the fair comparison would be Universal since they are both seperate ticket events. But personally, Universal BLOWS away Knott's for mazes and shows. And I actually think the Fright Fest is a better value than Knott's Haunt.
