KNOTT’S SCARY FARM
Ongoing through Oct. 31
"Not recommended for wimps or children under 13." Be sure to read the fine print on Knott’s Scary Farm ads because you’ve been warned. Once you walk through the gates of the amusement park, be prepared to scream as rollercoasters and sneaky fright night tricks become the ultimate Halloween treat. Five scare zones will be filled with more than 1,000 monsters and stalking psychos lurking in the fog – which means you can run, but only the ghosts can hide. Twelve creepy mazes are trapped within the park, and three new trails have been created to add a special challenge for diehard trick-or-treaters who attend Halloween Haunt each year.
Besides looking over your shoulder for ghoulish predators, when Knott’s changes into Scary Farm, it’s best to be on the lookout for special coupons and giveaway days.

QUEEN MARY’S SHIPWRECK
Ongoing through Oct. 31
You’ve heard the rumors: This ship is haunted. But each year during October, it becomes completely terrifying as unsuspecting visitors become victims to eerie mazes placed throughout the decks and never-ending corridors that lead straight to mutants and maniacs. If you survive the first part of the night, though, you can drink your fears away in the ship’s Boiler Room Club or dance the night away at the three-level seaside party in Queen Mary’s Exhibit Hall.

WEHO HALLOWEEN CARNAVAL 2005
Oct. 31, 6 p.m.-midnight
All dressed up with no where to go? That’s not possible on Halloween in Hollywood. Every year WeHo closes down Santa Monica Boulevard (between Doheny Drive and La Cienega Boulevard) and surrounding businesses stay open late so people can party in the streets. Three stages of live music will haunt the air and, this year, "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest will be crowned "Queen of the Carnaval." But be sure to dress to impress – first prize for the costume contest is $1,000.
