A NIGHTMARE COME TRUE! THE HISTORY OF THE KNOTT'S SCARY FARM HALLOWEEN HAUNT IS UNLEASHED!! The incredible story on how Knott's Berry Farm's annual Knott's Scary Farm Halloween Haunt became the World's Largest and Scariest Halloween Party is displayed in the hauntingly beautiful book - Knott's Halloween Haunt - A Picture History by Ted Dougherty. Foreword by actor, Neil Patrick Harris. Through a fascinating display of archival photographs (most of which have never seen the light of day) and meticulously-researched ghoulish details, author Ted Dougherty throws the switch and brings to life the forty-year history of an event that has terrified millions of helpless victims. The shrouds of mystery as to how the event became such a monster are lifted as the first book on the event demonstrates how America's First Theme Park conjured a three-day affair in 1973 and created a legacy that has gone on to influence hundreds of copycat events across the globe. Filled with over 300 photographs which unveil terrifying artwork, eerie ephemera, behind-the-scenes thrills and of course, ghoulish monsters, Knott's Halloween Haunt - A Picture History is unlike any book that has been let loose on the public.
