Last weekend my family headed to Knott’s Spooky Farm to enjoy a spooktacular day at one of our favorite theme parks. Halloween can overwhelming and bit be hard on a little kids. There’s the costumes, loads of candy which are fun, but there’s also the ghastly gorey stuff that can be a bit much for little ones. Not fun, especially for sensitive children…
Every year when Halloween rolls around, my son old feels completely left out of the Halloween loop, and he feels limited to the events he can participate in. They are just too spooky for him and or not age appropriate. Oh and the sadness he experiences when mom and his older sisters head to Knott’s Scary Farm…
I am always looking for kid friendly Halloween activities that my son can participate in, that won’t end with him sleeping in my bed or waking us up with a nightmare. I don’t want him to miss out on the spooky fun, and I want all my kiddos to have an awesome Halloween experience!
My son was ecstatic about showing up this year in his Panda Halloween costume. We hit some pretty awesome spots in the theme park that I want to share with you!
Thank you Knott’s Berry Farm for Inviting my family to #KnottsSpookyFarm. All opinions are my own.

1. Timber Mountain Log Ride
The Timber Mountain Log Ride (my personal favorite), converts into the Halloween Hootenanny. Knott’s has added a new friendly twist to this awesome ride. Every year the citizens of the Timber Mountain invite the creatures that live out in the woods and caverns of the area to join them as they celebrate the season at the Halloween Hootenanny.
These ghoulish gals were super friendly and photo ready!
My cute panda bear got his candy fix in Ghost Town! Kids ages 3-11 can participate in Trick-or-Treating throughout Ghost Town, and interact with spooky but friendly Shopkeepers.
