The existing Knott’s Berry Farm chaperone policy requires all park guests ages 17 and under to be accompanied by an adult age 21+; however, the new Scary Farm chaperone policy (effective Sept 29, 2022) states that one guest age 21 and older can chaperone up to five guests under the age of 18.

In addition to this Scary Farm chaperone policy change – and also effective Sept 29, 2022 – any chaperone who accompanies five minors (who all have valid paid admission for that evening’s event) will be given one complimentary admission to use for that night only. Limit one complimentary chaperone ticket per five minors.

To qualify for complimentary admission, each chaperone must accompany a total of five guests under the age of 18 and must present a valid photo ID with a date of birth. Chaperones of parties with less than five minors do not qualify for complimentary admission and would need a paid ticket for entry. The chaperone’s complimentary ticket will be issued at the Main Entrance turnstiles.

All chaperones must accompany their party during entry, remain inside the park during the length of their visit, and be available by phone throughout their stay. Guests ages 17 years old or younger who are found inside the park and unable to contact their chaperone by phone will be subject to ejection. The Knott’s Berry Farm chaperone policy has also been expanded to five minors per adult (no complimentary chaperone ticket is being offered for regular park admission).

Knott’s has also implemented the following bag policy for Scary Farm events:

Guests may not bring bags larger than 6.5″ x 4.5″ x 2″ of any kind, including purses, backpacks, fanny packs, or diaper bags, into the park during Knott’s Scary Farm. In addition, all bags are subject to be searched before entry.

Due to the “explicit and frightening nature” of the event, Knott’s does not recommend Scary Farm for children under 13.
