Knott's Berry Farm Tricks Out Camp Spooky for Halloween

CC and Snoopy at Lucy's Lunchbox

What a great way to kick off October! CC, Ian and I were invited down to Camp Snoopy, er, Camp Spooky at Knott's Berry Farm on Saturday to enjoy a little Halloween excitement -- and a little fright.

After kicking off the festivities with breakfast at 8 a.m. (waking up CC at 6:30 a.m. to get down to Orange County in her Snow White costume was a little tricky but definitely worth it), we met up with some familiar yet costumed characters before we hit the (little) kid-friendly rides and attractions.

I'm not sure if you remember my LA Moms Blog post about CC's first amusement park ride at Camp Snoopy. Basically, I was totally freaked out for her to go on this, the most docile of rides. This time around, CC was bold (and so was I). She handled the Sierra Sidewinder like a pro. (And I didn't even only let out a small whimper as I strapped her into her seat.)

Mostly, though, we stuck to the small stuff:

CC pushes and pulls on the Huff and Puff.

Hay bale maze!

Kids who visit Camp Spooky will each receive a little trick-or-treat bag to fill up with candy at various stations around the park. There are also crafting activities and a live show from fave Peanuts characters.

Oh, and grown-up kids can have just as much fun, too. Ian was eager to hit all of the crazy thrill rides before the park got too crowded. (I used to be this way too, but something happened -- I think it was giving birth.) He rode the scary roller coasters and even swung over Knott's in the 300 ft. tall WindSeeker (right). Eek! Fright is right!
