One of the most surprising bits of news to hit the Haunt industry this year was Elvira’s announced return to Knott’s Scary Farm after being absent from the park for over 10 years. Elvira had become a staple of Halloween Haunt had quickly helped propel Scary Farm as being one of the top theme park events on the planet. This year she is back with a brand new show “Elvira’s Sinema Séance”, and will be hosting meet and greets inside the park shortly after each show nightly.
To celebrate the return of Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, to Knott’s in 2013, we’re inviting all aspiring Elvira wannabes to dress the part and come to Knott’s Scary Farm on Saturday, October 5 for a chance to strut your stuff. For one night only, Knott’s will break its “no costumes” rule just for guests dressed like Elvira for this special event. The look-alike contest will take place at 10:00pm on the Calico Stage in Ghost Town. One grand prize winner will receive two tickets to come back to Knott’s Scary Farm again in 2013 on the night of their choice.
Please note: Valid admission to Knott’s Scary Farm is required. Only Elvira costumes will be permitted. No masks or weapons permitted. Knott’s reserves the right to determine whether Elvira costumes qualify for admittance/contest participation. Knott’s Scary Farm is not recommended for guests under 13. Event re-entry is not permitted.
For more information, here is a clip of from the Mistress herself.
In addition to the look-a-like contests guests can also purchase a bit of Elvira herself. Exclusive Knott’s Scary Farm Elvira pins have been revealed. Pin trading is slowly adapting itself from Disney to other parks around the country. Scary Farm will be no excepting introducing limited edition Elvira themed pins.
