Knott’s Scary Farm has always been known for innovation when it comes to Halloween. They created the modern theme park Halloween event format that is now seen in different places all over the world. This year will be no exception with the introduction of Smell-O-Scary, a brand new way to experience The Hanging, Knott’s annual yearly parody show/Necktie Party. At West Coast Bash, they announced the name of this years show to those in attendance. Yesterday Knott’s Scary Farm announced it to the rest of the world as well as an extra ghoulish surprise…

The title of the The Hanging was announced at West Coast Bash yesterday…
The show will be presented in Smell-O-Scary!  Look for details on how to get a Scratch N’ Sniff Card to fully enjoy the show!
More details when I can dig them up… … NOWHERE TO HIDE
The Hanging started over 40 years ago as a nightly witch hanging. It was very a very dark, chilling, and haunting spectacle which guests of last years Halloween Haunt could have re-experienced. But over the years the event evolved into a parody show spoofing the year’s celebrities, events and ultimately one celebrity who was the worst offender of the year would be hung, which is how guests can see the show this upcoming season. It’s always fun to see parks doing fun things especially Knott’s, scratch n’ sniff is certainly a first for a Halloween event in California. As far as how it will be incorporated into the show remains to be seen.
That does it for this quick Knott’s update.
