Forevermore: A New Maze Revealed For Knott's Scary Farm's Annual Halloween Haunt

 



Yesterday Knott's Berry Farm made an announcement on their official Facebook page, of the first maze in their Halloween Haunt 2013 line up. Knott's Berry Farm has been bringing terror into the Halloween season since 1973 with their annual Halloween Haunt event. Before their big reveal yesterday they released a rather interesting hint, "Did you hear that? I thought heard someone rapping on the door." This hint made me instantly think of the post I saw on tumblr a few months ago:






Haha, Anyways here is the official announcement:

"From Brooke Walters, the creator of The Doll Factory and Trick-Or-Treat, comes a new chapter in terror:

"FOREVERMORE"

... Follow in the footsteps of the darkly troubled writer Edgar Allan Poe through a nightmare conjured up by a modern madman. Each of Poe's bloodsoaked and terror-filled tales will envelope you in their insanity and horror. Page by page you will descend deeper into the subconscious of the man who invented American horror.
Forevermore is gothic horror with a modern day twist.
Will you escape?
Or will you remain in the horror Forevermore...?

Forevermore will be behind Mystery Lodge for Haunt 2013, home to former classic mazes Terror of London, 13 Axe Murder Manor and Blood Bayou.

See you in the fog...."


 

(Forevermore will be taking the place of the former maze, Terror of London.)


During Knott's 40th Halloween Haunt they brought new mazes to the table such as Trick Or Treat, Pinocchio Unstrung, and Dominion of the Dead. Which were all big hits for me. Especially Pinocchio Unstrung, I'm a sucker for dark and twisted fairy tales.


Here's a look at last year's Halloween Haunt event:




Though the Edgar Allen Poe theme for haunted attraction is nothing new, Universal Studios Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights showcased a Poe based maze back in 2011 called Nevermore: The Madness of Poe. Also Busch Garden's Howl-O-Scream in Tampa presented Nevermore in 2011 and 2012. It's seems Knott's Scary Farm is jumping on the bandwagon, I'm curious to see their twist on Poe.


What other new mazes will Knott's Scary Farm showcase? Time to play the waiting game!
