Carowinds to Reach Exciting New Heights
The world’s tallest and fastest giga coaster will connect the beloved Carolina park’s historic past with its thrilling future
Charlotte, NC (August 21, 2014) / PR Newswire / — For more than 40 years, Carowinds has been the place where the Carolinas come together. It’s where the Tar Heel State and the Palmetto State meet. It’s where families and friends bond over thrilling rides and entertainment. Carowinds will now unite its storied history with its future as the standard for thrills by unleashing Fury 325, the world’s tallest and fastest giga coaster.Fury 325 will simulate the wild, daring and spontaneous flight of the hornet. The new ride will be visible from uptown Charlotte, renewing the park’s skyline and serving as a symbol of changes to come. Fury 325 is part of a planned $50 million dollar multiyear investment to bring new life to founder Pat Hall’s original vision for Carowinds. The park will be revamped from top to bottom to celebrate Carolina culture including new rides and attractions, signature Carolina food offerings and entertainment. Opening in Spring 2015, Fury 325 will be the centerpiece of a new 8.2 acre main entrance plaza that includes a state–of–the–art ticketing and season pass processing area and expanded guest service facilities.
“Starting with Fury 325, we plan to make Carowinds a destination for thrillseekers to celebrate the Carolinas,” says Mike Fehnel, Carowinds Vice President and General Manager. “The new ride will build on the heritage of the park, creating new memories and traditions for our loyal fans and future guests from around the world.”
Riders will board into three 32–passenger open air trains and begin their ascent to the top of a 325–foot (over 30 stories) hill. This immense hill is followed by an exhilarating 81 degree first drop. Like an angry hornet chasing its target, Fury 325 will race through a series of hills, curves and quick transitions while reaching speeds of up to 95 miles per hour. Riders will speed along 6,602 feet of track during the nearly three and one half minute ride.
“The tradition of the park is so important to those who have grown up here,” says Fehnel. “It’s long overdue that we gave our fans a new energy surrounding Carowinds, which will build on our legacy as the premiere entertainment destination for generations of Carolinians.”
Those who can’t wait until Spring 2015 to experience Fury 325 can take a virtual ride at carowinds.com/fury325 where they can also check out photos, virtual renderings, ride stats and more. This Fall, fans can purchase a 2015 season pass or renew current season passes for the lowest price of the year at carowinds.com.

Face Your Fears in Eleven Haunted Attractions
Three new terrifying attractions will debut this year, with more astounding special effects and richer back stories than ever. These new mazes complement the horrific line-up of seven returning haunted attractions. This year’s nightmares include:
Voodoo (new for 2014): Trudge cautiously through the cursed swamps of the Deep South, where creatures search the murky bogs for their next bloody sacrifice and demons curse the innocent with Voodoo hexes. Guests must choose their path from a number of foreboding choices, resulting in a different terrifying outcome with each journey into the swamp.
The Tooth Fairy (new for 2014): The joy of hiding a lost tooth under the pillow becomes a nightmare of pain and blood in this new maze that will leave teeth chattering. This twisted tooth fairy steals more than just baby teeth as he drags his victims out their bedroom window and into a world of deranged dentistry. Unbelievable special effects include a blackout room through which guests must feel their way out, a disorienting x-ray strobe light room, and a final encounter with the massive tooth fairy, himself. Say aahhh.
Trapped: Lock and Key (new for 2014): This year Trapped returns with more rooms, more intricate puzzles and a shocking finale more extreme than any experience ever presented at Knott’s Scary Farm. You become part of the terror and are forced to face your darkest fears, confront your inner terrors and descend into the madness of a maze with no way out. Trapped is not for the squeamish as the challenges are darker and more terrifying than any that have come before. (Additional fee and reservation required.)
Trick-or-Treat: Trick or treat, which will it be? Step forward and ring the witch’s doorbell. You can come away with a treat, but is it worth it? Featuring a high flying finale and new scares in the witch’s dining room, this fan favorite is back for its third year of fear.
Black Magic: The veil between the living and the dead is severed when Houdini’s ghost materializes during a séance and ushers a host of demonic illusions to play tricks on anyone who intrudes on his theatre. Back for its second year, Black Magic was one of the most popular mazes in its debut season last year. Guests will find new magic and even more monsters inside the ominous theater in 2014.
Forevermore: The twisted mind of Edgar Allen Poe comes alive as the “Forevermore Killer” works his way through one haunting tale after another. Back for its second killer season, Forevermore is one of the longest mazes ever created for Knott’s Scary Farm, and features richly detailed story lines and scenery.
The Gunslinger’s Grave: Return to the Old West and walk in the bloody footsteps of a betrayed and left for dead gunslinger on his path of retribution against a corrupt township. You may have visited Knott’s historic Ghost Town, but it’s not until you’ve followed the blood lusting gunslinger that you know the real dangers that lurk in the old west.
Dominion of the Damned: The Blood Queen’s reign has ended, but the seductive vampires continue to lure unsuspecting guests into this gothic lair of terror. Guests’ thirst for this bloody maze was unquenchable last season, and it returns with an unbelievable new finale.
Pinocchio Unstrung: Years have passed since the blue fairy denied him his final wish, but Pinocchio has returned with an army of murderous marionettes intent on killing his former masters. Revenge comes with no strings attached.
The Witch’s Keep: Many years ago, The Green Witch uncovered a wicked source of power in the depths of the Calico Mine, and now she’s hell-bent on using this mysterious energy to capture and corrupt all who dare enter! With newly enhanced show scenes, lighting, and special effects, this not-too-scary mine train adventure is perfect Halloween fun.
The Hanging® - Everything is Gruesome!, a live stage show in Calico Square irreverently looks back at the year's pop culture with killer comedy. Notorious for its special effects, pyrotechnics and high-flying stunts, The Hanging is a no-holds-barred assault on pop culture’s most infamous moments of the past year. A must see parody!
160 Acres of Scares
Knott’s Scary Farm is far more than a collection of haunted attractions. Every night monsters spill out onto the streets and turn theme park midways into murderous scare zones. From the world famous Ghost Town Streets to the Boardwalk area filled with evil clowns, there’s nowhere to hide in Knott’s Scary Farm.
Ghost Town Streets is the original and still most terrifying scare zone that started it all. Bands of half-human, half-animal monsters prowl the streets and inhabit the fog, and beware the notoriously startling sliders, who lunge from in every fog-filled corner of the land. Just beyond the streets of Ghost Town lies the mysterious outcropping known as Gypsy Camp, where fortune tellers prognosticate future terrors, and ravenous werewolves howl in the light of the moon.
Fiesta De Los Muertos fuses dance music, colorful costumes, and larger than life stilt walkers in a dance party scare zone with even more characters than last year. It’s the ultimate late night celebration of Dia de los Muertos. Around the corner from Fiesta Village is the Boardwalk, where each night of Knott’s Scary Farm, clowns crave your undying attention in the CarnEVIL scare zone.
Between the twisted clowns, demented dentists and wretched puppeteers patrolling our park, it’s obvious to see our monsters don’t have their heads screwed on tight. However, this year marks the unexpected return of a legendary creature that doesn’t have a head at all, the Headless Horsemen! This Scary Farm season, we need guests to photograph the Headless Horseman and share the images with us via Twitter, tagging @Knotts with the hashtag #ScaryFarm and #HeadlessHorseman. Those who are brave enough to help track the Horseman can win prizes, including park passes.

Last night online media and Season Passholders were invited out to Knott's Berry Farm for the official unveiling of the 2014 Knott's Scary Farm line-up.
As always, Knott's puts on an amazing event, and as always, the lineup for this years Scary Farm looks to be amazing. Some great returning mazes, some awesome sounding new mazes and a couple of surprises that I don't think anybody saw coming.
Before we get started, the park provided us with some great Scary Farm B-Roll. It even features our very own CoasterMatt and his lovely wife. Can you find them?
After a 2 1/2 hour drive we found ourselves in a familiar place, back at Knott's ready to kick off another year of Scary Farm.
By the time we got inside the park at about 5:45, the line-up to get inside the "Ghoul Time Theater" was filled with anxious Haunt fans. I'd be hard pressed to find another annual event that has as many passionate fans as Knott's Scary Farm.
Once inside the stage was set and the fog started rolling in.
With Scary Farm music coming through the speakers, Monsters roaming the theater and the overall jubilation of the audience, Haunt was definitely in the air. And it was awesome.
The event kicked off with the one and only Jeff Tucker escorting out the one and only Elvira as she announced her return to Haunt, and she will be at the event every night of the run this year.
After Elvira's announcement, Jeff welcomed four very special people who are no strangers to Haunt fans. Laura Hanneman (Knott's Scary Farm Creative Director), Timothy "Gus" Krueger (Design Specialist), Daniel Miller (Design Specialist) and Brooke Walters (Design Supervisor) to talk about the mazes.
WHAT'S IN THE BOX!!!!
All week, the Knott's Scary Farm Facebook Page had been teasing a "Box" and asking, what could possibly be in the box. Hopefully it wouldn't be what Brad Pitt found in the box in the movie Se7en (spoiler alert).
What was in the box was the annoucement of an all-new "Scary Farm Season Pass". This is only available to current Knott's Berry Farm Season Passholders and is only $65. There are no blackout days and you can come to Haunt every night of the run if you'd like.
You can purchase them here, but you'd better hurry. They are limited and will sell out quickly.
After all of the announcements, in typical Knott's fashion, an amazing reception was held for the media.
Interviews were available with Haunt Designers and Elvira but since we don't really have that capability we just enjoyed the evening, the food and hanging out with some great friends.
I guess we should eventually get on that bandwagon. =)
Once again, thanks to Knott's for inviting us to their event, we had a blast.
Now let's get to the good stuff ... what will actually be featured at Haunt this year!!!
Trick or Treat
Trick or treat, which will it be? Step forward and ring the witch’s doorbell. Oh, she is home, but where? You are not quite sure. Don’t be afraid, her minions will guide you. You can come away with a treat, but is it worth it?
New for 2014
Dominion of the Damned
The Blood Queen’s reign has ended, but the seductive vampires continue to lure unsuspecting guests into this gothic lair of terror. Ancient vampire lore decrees there shall always be one to rule the damned... Long live the King!
New for 2014

All the victims unwittingly find themselves a part of “The Raven,” “The Tell-Tale Heart,” “The Pit and the Pendulum,” The Masque of Red Death” among other horrific stories. Guests will want to catch up on their reading to stay a chapter ahead of their demise.
New for 2014
The veil between the living and the dead is severed when Houdini’s ghost materializes during a séance and ushers a host of demonic illusions to play tricks on anyone who intrudes on his theatre.

New for 2014
Return to the Old West and walk in the bloody footsteps of a betrayed and left for dead gunslinger on his path to retribution against a corrupt township. This journey back in time takes guests on a trail of terror through abandoned gold mines, a treacherous corral, a seedy saloon and a final showdown at town hall.
New for 2014
Years have passed since the blue fairy denied him his final wish, but Pinocchio has returned with an army of murderous marionettes intent on killing his former masters. The purpose of his killing spree – human flesh to cover his twisted wooden body. Revenge comes with no strings attached.
New for 2014
The Witch's Keep

Trapped: Lock and Key
This year Trapped returns with more rooms, more intricate puzzles and a shocking finale more extreme than any experience ever presented at Knott’s Scary Farm.

Beware the cursed swamps of New Orleans, where mindless zombies trudge through the murky bogs in search of bloody sacrifices and demons use Voodoo curses to possess innocent souls. Choose your path carefully children, for one wrong turn and you will be hexed forever.
The Tooth Fairy
This twisted tooth fairy steals more than just baby teeth as he drags his victims out their bedroom window and into a world of deranged dentistry. Unbelievable special effects include a blackout room through which guests must feel their way out, a disorienting x-ray strobe light room, and a final encounter with the massive tooth fairy, himself. Say aahhh.

Fiesta De Los Muertos fuses dance music, colorful costumes, and larger than life stilt walkers in a dance party scare zone with even more characters than last year. It’s the ultimate late night celebration of Dia de los Muertos.
The Knott’s Boardwalk is taken over by “CarnEVIL,” where the freak show is the main event and clowns crave your undying attention.
Just beyond the streets of Ghost Town lies the mysterious outcropping known as Gypsy Camp, where fortune tellers prognosticate future terrors, and ravenous werewolves howl in the light of the moon.
Special Ops: Infected
One of the biggest and most pleasant surprises of the night was the announcement of Special Ops: Infected. Everybody was kind of puzzled why there wasn't a scare zone in Camp Snoopy but instead we get to shoot Zombies!! Really can't wait for this one. Should be awesome.
Survive the Zombie Apocalypse in an All-Out War
NEW for 2014 - This ambitious new attraction is the first of its kind in North America and will challenge guests to exterminate the infestation of zombies who threaten mankind’s existence. Armed with specially designed laser guns, brave groups of Knott’s Scary Farm guests will embark on missions, led by their Squad Leader – a loud mouthed, take-no-prisoners commander charged with turning guests into soldiers. Groups must work together to fend off zombies and complete various missions before time runs out. If zombies drag their bodies too close, the un-infected’s guns temporarily deactivate, compromising the safety of the entire team. Soldiers with the deadliest aim will be celebrated with a tally of the number of zombies killed on a display board for other survivors to see each night in base camp.
Special Ops: Infected seamlessly integrates interactive gaming technology with an immersive mountainous landscape, delivering a breakthrough interactive haunted experience that is as terrifying as it is challenging. Missions will take guests through a variety of wilderness terrains, including the unpredictable barrel bridges across the rushing river, through the dark caverns, and through mysterious backwoods. Six acres of the beloved theme park is now home to mutinous, scream-inducing zombies, and the time has come for a harrowing Special Ops survival mission.
