SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA THEME PARK ROUNDUP
Steve Zall and Sid Fish
There is no "trick" to finding something special to "treat" yourself to at our local resorts and theme parks, with seasonal offerings such as:
"Halloween Time Disneyland" Returns as Mickey and Pals and Disney Villains Transform Disneyland Resort for the Season
The Disneyland Halloween season includes the return of Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy – the thrillingly “haunted” version of the popular Tomorrowland attraction – and the longtime favorite Haunted Mansion Holiday, in which Halloween and Christmas collide for an attraction inspired by “Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas.” Guests will also enjoy the new, nighttime water spectacular “World of Color,” performing nightly at Disney California Adventure park. Halloween Time offers families a chance to enjoy seasonal attractions and décor, as well as interact with beloved Disney characters decked out in whimsical Halloween costumes, and experience spooky fun with Disney’s more sinister characters, the Disney Villains.
Favorite Disney characters, including Mickey himself, will dress up in their favorite costumes. Guests will have fun, eat special holiday treats, play interactive games, listen to “spirited” music and watch a nightly character cavalcade that celebrates the season.
For Halloween fun at Disneyland, guests will enjoy Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy in Tomorrowland. The experience begins as a typical Space Mountain adventure, but suddenly launches voyagers into a haunted section of the universe. Ghosts appear out of the starry darkness and swirling galaxies of Space Mountain, reaching out as if to grab guests as they speed through space. The exhilarating drops and curves of the journey are punctuated by piercing screams, creepy sound effects and haunting music.
Jack Skellington also returns to take over the Haunted Mansion and bring back Haunted Mansion Holiday to New Orleans Square in Disneyland. Transformed to a mix of Halloween spookiness and Christmas tradition, Haunted Mansion Holiday is inspired by the classic animated film “Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas.” Jack and his friends provide plenty of havoc and surprises as they celebrate the holidays in their unusual style. Jack’s return to the Haunted Mansion includes the traditional Halloween/Christmas gingerbread house in the Mansion Ballroom, with some special spooky surprises in this year’s design.
Halloween Time offers frightfully delightful fun for children and adults including:
For spine-tingling fun, drop in at The Twilight Zone™ Tower of Terror at Disney California Adventure park, where a “supernatural” event happened on Halloween evening, 1939, forever haunting the building.
Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland is transformed for the Pumpkin Festival. More than 300 pumpkins will be on display in shop windows and none of them are the same!
Visitors to Big Thunder Ranch in Frontierland will find ranch animals, pumpkin carvers, Halloween décor and activities for youngsters, all presided over by Sheriff Woody.
Meeting Disney characters will be easier than ever as Disney villains gather to plot Halloween mischief at “it’s a small world” Mall in Disneyland, while other characters in spooky attire greet guests in Town Square, Main Street, U.S.A.
Rancho del Zocalo in Frontierland will honor Dia de los Muertos/Day of the Dead with traditional skeleton figures on display Sept. 19 through Nov. 2.
Special Halloween treats will be available in Disneyland, including menu items such as Zero’s Ghostly Ghoulash, served in a dog dish in honor of Zero.
Halloween Time gifts are offered in Disneyland Resort shops. Gifts include jack-o-lantern mouse ears and collectable pins depicting Mickey Mouse and his friends in Halloween costumes.
In addition, the private-party celebration that has been so popular with guests will return for 10 special nights in October as Mickey’s Halloween Party. Moving to Disneyland this year with a new name, Mickey’s Halloween Party is the separate-ticket event that invites adults and children to dress up in costume and trick-or-treat at the resort. This nighttime celebration is scheduled for Tuesdays and Fridays in October, plus Halloween night, and it includes:
Trick or Treating in the ultimate Disney neighborhood, with even more treats along “Mickey’s Hide-and-Go-Treat Trails”
New dance parties at Tomorrowland Terrace and the French Market
The “Halloween Screams” fireworks spectacular, hosted by “Master of Scare-omonies” Jack Skellington (presented exclusively for guests of Mickey’s Halloween Party)
New surprises in “Mickey’s Costume Party” cavalcade, performed twice nightly
Character photo locations featuring Mickey and his pals, princesses and other favorites
The opportunity to arrive three hours before the party starts to play in Disneyland
Nearly all the favorite Disneyland rides and attractions

Knott’s Scary Farm "Halloween Haunt” is Opening the Gates!
Knott’s Scary Farm is preparing for the witching season, the annual opening of the world’s largest Halloween celebration in the world – Knott’s Halloween Haunt. Starting September 24 and running for 27 horrifying nights the typically family friendly theme park will transform itself for its willing victims into 160-acres of sheer terror.
Knott’s Halloween Haunt continues to be the leader in theme park Halloween events offering a whopping 13 mazes, seven hair-raising shows, three horrific scare zones and 1,000 roaming monsters roaming throughout the entire park.
Locked in a cement grave for decades, hidden deep below the depths of the lake, an abandoned “Fallout Shelter (in 3D)” is crawling with human/genetic hybrids, toxic mutants, and a host of nuclear freaks all hungry for carnage. Grab your Geiger counters and put on your radiation suits these residents are ravenous. Ghosts and ghouls, witches and goblins, long legged beasts and things that go bump in the night are all at your heels as you travel through the night through “Sleepy Hollow.” Specters and phantoms and legends of long ago haunt the living. Welcome to Pleasanton – Population: Zero. The highly infectious “Virus Z” has turned the entire town into cannibal zombies and you’re this week’s special. Hordes of bloodthirsty corpses roam the small town in search of fresh meat. Help has arrived, but they are not on a rescue mission – they are here to wall off the entire town from civilization.
The inmates really are running the asylum in this nightmare prison, “Lockdown: The Asylum,” and insanity reigns supreme. The inmates are out of their cells and their minds. And don’t scream for help, this hostile takeover has the authorities running for cover!
Step back in time and into the fog-filled streets of London where a host of infamous characters are on the prowl terrorizing city dwellers. Step lively or you may fall victim to Jack the Ripper’s blade or Dr. Jekyll’s twisted experiments as Big Ben rings out in “Terror of London.” God save the Queen…..and you!
Venture into the forbidden jungle of El Chupacabra where sacrificial blood rains down from the sky. The screams of La Llorona, the Weeping Woman, echo around you and the creatures of the night crawl from their crypts – “Dia de los Muertos,” the “Day of the Dead” has arrived!
Step right up! Don’t be shy! Welcome to “Uncle Bobo’s Big Top of the Bizarre in 3D.” Inside you will find a villainous variety of vaudevillian visages to vex even the most valiant voyeurs! It’s the greatest slaughter on earth with clown carnage galore!
Enter “The Labyrinth” for a journey through a forgotten forest and into the dark catacombs that lie beneath a ruined castle. The evil king is dead, but his cursed court still haunts the dark passageways and mythical beasts come to life as you try to navigate the never-ending corridors.
Folk’s from near and far come a-runnin for Farmer Willy’s world famous BBQ! You can smell the sizzling meat from miles away. And now you can learn his secret first hand, as you enter “The Slaughterhouse.” Farmer Willy will think you are prime beef as he sets out to auction you off to the highest bidder, tenderize you with his chainsaw, and grind you into a tasty meat treat. Bon Appetit!
“Black Widow’s Cavern” takes you to the heart of an abandoned mine overrun by a horrific pack of deadly arachnids. A trip to “The Doll Factory” reveals a twisted museum of death and disfigurement as you are pursued by the Marionette Murderer, a psychotic killer who turns his beautiful victims into life-size porcelain dolls.
In “Club Blood” the music is hypnotic and the cocktails are bloody. In the dark underbelly of the city, human victims are drained of their life to nourish the children of the night. Join the hypnotic dance macabre and explore the darkest nightlife around.
It’s harvest time and the crop is you in “Corn Stalkers.” Plunge into rows and rows of rotting corn and try to evade the bloodthirsty monstrosities seeking to impale you on their razor sharp scythes.
NEW SCARE ZONE
Take a sightseeing tour of Knott’s newest scare zone, “Necropolis,” a vampire world of flesh and machine, of gears and steam. Journey through the streets of this steam punk influenced city of the dead and discover the only truth in town:Blood is power.
There is no place quite like “Ghost Town,” home to a whole cast of night stalkers including the notorious Sliders who lurk in every fog-filled corner. You can’t see your hand in front of face as you try and navigate the winding streets that may just lead to the graveyard!
Knott’s Boardwalk is taken over by “CarnEVIL,” where the freak show is the main event and clowns crave your undying attention.
A trip to Halloween Haunt would not be complete without the shows! See one, see them all – Knott’s entertainment offers so many twisted choices. In the Ghoul Time Theatre, Ed Alonzo offers up his “Psycho Circus of Magic and Mayhem.” This self-proclaimed Misfit of Magic brings slight-of-hand, slight-of-mouth and slight of mind to this insane, psycho-sensory production. The Wagon Camp will be ablaze with Inferno. This lethal combination of fire, dance and pulsating music returns to create one of Haunt’s “hottest” shows with fire poi, staves, swords, hoops, fire eating and more! At Necropolis Theatre guests can watch the ghoulishly great performance of Street Drum Corps’ BANG!’s “Blood Drums” show. BANG!’s high energy drumming quartet is known for their unique blend of amazing percussion skills with ordinary found objects. Take in the pulsating power as this extraordinary drum troupe mesmerizes with percussive rhythm, music and lights. For those who enjoy improvisational comedy, the Hacks! group presentation of “Die, Die, Die!” will have you in stitches with their maniacal humor. And in the Boardwalk Ballroom the Hypnochick will have you mesmerized. At the CarnEVIL stage, “Zamora’s Sideshow of the Bizarre” returns. Zamora, the King of Torture, amazes audiences with his mind blowing, invasive, self-inflicted pain and torture. He amuses, amazes and makes your skin crawl! And of course, no Haunt would be complete without the legendary “Hanging” in Calico Scare. The Calico Courthouse has been transformed into a mausoleum where the townsfolk are invited to gather and let their voices be heard. Evil must be punished!
Knott’s Halloween Haunt dates are September 24-26, September 30-Oct. 3, 6-10, 13-17, 20-24, 27-31, 2010. Event hours are 7pm - 1am; Fridays and Saturdays from 7pm-2am.
The Halloween Haunt at Knott’s Scary Farm is a special ticket event not covered by regular Knott’s Berry Farm admission. In addition to the event itself, Knott’s offers the popular “add-ons.” Packages for fright fans wishing to expand their experience include the park’s “Pre-Scare Dinner,” offering ticket holders dinner and early access to the event; three Haunt-inspired overnight packages at the Knott’s Berry Farm Resort Hotel; and a VIM (Very Important Monster) Escorted Tour for up to 6 guests. Once again Knott’s Pre-Scare Dinner Special offers Haunt ticket holders a themed “boo-ffet” dinner followed by early entry into Haunt a few minutes before it opens to the public (does not include Haunt event tickets and is only available to Haunt ticket holders with advance dinner reservations.) For reservations, visit www.Knotts.com or call (714) 220-5055.

Halloween Haunt is a scary event and definitely not recommended for children under 13, but for the younger set, Snoopy’s Costume Party in Camp Snoopy is an alternative daytime non-scare celebration of Halloween cheer rather than fear offered weekends October 2-31, 10 am to 5 pm and is included with regular park admission. This special, family event includes friendly monsters, a kid-friendly maze, crafts, and of course, trick-or-treat stations.
Knott's Berry Farm is open daily year round, and "Halloween Haunt" starts September 24 and continues Wednesdays through Sundays until October 31 at Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park. For more information call 714-220-5200 or visitwww.knotts.com.

Legoland California has found a way to make the biggest kids’ Halloween celebration in San Diego even bigger! Brick-or-Treat Party Nights presented by Verizon expands this year with a new interactive musical “Mail Order Monsters”, a second Brick-or-Treat Trail in a new location and for the first time, Sea Life Aquarium gets into the spirit of Brick-or-Treat Party Nights with its own nighttime Brick-or-Treat Trail Bonus station.

These kid-sized cul-de-sacs feature LEGO-themed treat stations and offer a safe, fun and entertaining trick-or-treating experience.
Then every Saturday in October from 5 to 9 p.m., the family theme park transforms into a not-too-spooky Halloween haven for Brick-or-Treat Party Nights featuring costume contests, nighttime trick-or-treating on the Brick or Treat Trails, festive music, entertainment, interaction with the “Boo Crew” and fantastic lighting effects.

Prize packages including Legoland Resort memberships and souvenirs, LEGO toys and gifts are awarded to the winner in each category. In the new, live stage show, “Mail Order Monsters”, 10-year old Princess Playwright has ordered some delightfully scary monsters for the Brick-or-Treat celebration but the mischievous Jester Funny Bones conjured up a spell to make the monsters as sweet as candy. Guests have to help the Princess retrain her monsters and break the spell all in time for the big Halloween celebration!
Every day throughout the month of October, families can climb aboard a giant LEGO jack-o-lantern to capture a fun and memorable photo. The jack-o-lantern, which is more than 7 feet wide, is made of 22,000 DUPLO® bricks and weighs 850 pounds! Children will also love interacting with the “Boo Crew” including Silly Scarecrows, Howlin’ Howie, Jester Funny Bones and Count Brickula as they “boo-gie” down during Party Nights.
All Brick-or-Treat and Party Nights festivities are included in the price of regular one-day admission to Legoland California.
