August is usually a transition period for Theme Parks and nowhere is this more evident that at Knott's Berry Farm. Not only are they wrapping up the summer of the rebuilt Ghostrider, but also wrapping up the run of the WILDLY successful and amazing Ghost Town Alive (be sure to catch it before it ends). But this also means that Knott's Scary Farm is coming and so you've got the winding down of things and new things springing up all over the park.

We'll start off with some amazing pictures of Ghost Town and around the park. Nothing really "update" here, just enjoy.
Be sure to catch the Hoedown in Ghost Town
Knott's is still one of VERY few parks in the US with a Stagecoach attraction. Actually, off the top of my head can't think of any other ones. If you know of one let us know in the comments.
One of the most beautiful rides ever. (no, not that green thing)
Looking at this picture it's hard to tell if Silver Bullet was going forwards or backwards. Note ... let's have Silver Bullet Backwards, that would be amazing.
From the Sky Cabin
Seriously, how about a golf clap for Matt's amazing pictures. Go ahead, do it at your desk. Nobody is looking.
The new stage, going to be quite interesting to see this decked out for The Hanging soon.
Ghostrider was running great!!
Alright, let's move on with Scary Farm stuff. A new maze is being built near Xcelerator. This is definitely not Black Magic.
At first it appeared that they were maybe building one of the Skeleton Key rooms here, but it's definitely two sides of the same maze (using the warehouse in the middle). And it looks to be a very good sized maze.
Some very tall walls here
Moving over to the Windseeker spot, something is being built here, not big enough to be a full maze, but looks like one of the Skeleton Key rooms.
Considering the normal Dia De Los Muertos maze we are thinking this is maybe ZoZo? But we'll certainly have to see.
I know a little German ... he's sitting right over there
Remember, the Scary Farm preview is next Thursday and we'll be there to bring you all the news for Knott's Scary Farm 2016 including new and returning mazes.
Also don't forget, Scary Farm Tickets are on sale NOW and this includes the Scare Pass which is an amazing value.
