Knott’s Scary Farm Accidents, Injuries, and Hazards

Guests at Halloween Mazes Can Get Hurt

BUENA PARK, California (Sept. 18, 2017) — Armed with a flashlight in a dark interactive maze called Trick or Treat Lights Out, guests at Knott’s Scary Farm meander their way through the Halloween attraction where they likely encounter a few jump-scares from a host of creepy characters.

The Orange County theme park attracts thousands to its annual Halloween-themed mazes every year, but these darkened attractions packed with goons and goblins can be hazardous.

Take for instance Special Ops: Infected where guests use a laser gun to hunt and shoot at a zombie apocalypse. As with most mazes, guests are taken through the attraction where there is limited lighting and potentially hazardous situations that could lead to an injury.

Common injuries suffered at Halloween haunts, pumpkin patches and horror nights include:

  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Head injury
  • Strains and sprains
  • Food poisoning
  • Animal bites at petting zoos
  • Death

Many of the injuries suffered in these theme park attractions are caused by interactions with zombies and monsters, a dangerous condition or hazard that is unseen due to darkened conditions, ride malfunctions or other problems with design or materials.

Indeed, most encounters at Knott’s or other theme parks are perfectly safe and fun. These types of attractions are now held all over the United States and around the world. In fact, with the 2017 season set to begin, a 21-year-old man in Hong Kong has already lost his life. He was killed this past weekend (Sept. 16) when he was struck by a coffin as he walked through the Buried Alive haunted house attraction in Hong Kong.

While there have been no deaths reported at Knott’s Scary Farm here in Orange County, there have been numerous injuries.

These mazes are among  Buena Park theme park created just for Halloween. Other mazes are the Red Barn, The Hollow, Special Ops: Infected, Paranormal Inc., Pumpkin Eater, CarnEVIL and Dark Ride.

Knott’s was one of the first amusement parks to create a Halloween haunt in 1973 for its guests, but now numerous parks offer similar attractions at California theme parks including:

The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment.

Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
