It's no secret that our family loves when the holiday season comes to life in the parks. It's so exciting to see each park put their own personal spin on our most beloved traditions. Some go super traditional and nostalgic, while others could give Clark Griswald a run for his money with their spectacular light displays. Then there is Universal Studios. Universal Studios Hollywood stands out in the crowd by daring to be different. I mean why have Santa when you can have… the Grinch! And seeing the Grinch and visiting Whoville is just where the fun starts! Come along with us as we take you through our family fun day visiting Universal Studios for the WHOlidays...I mean holidays.

Knott’s Spooky Farm 2022 Review
There's something special about seeing things through the eyes of a child.

But... ask a child... and you will most likely get a very different answer.

Knott’s Scary Farm 2022 – Maze and Scare Zone Review
Celebrating its 49th year, Knott's Scary Farm (or Halloween Haunt as us nerds call it) has settled upon the town of Calico and Knott's Berry Farm once again. This year, Scary Farm boasts 9 haunted attractions, 5 scare zones, 3 shows, and plenty of other fun experiences that very from scary too spooky. While we are a far scream away from its humble beginnings in 1973 where Seymour The Master of the Macabre was the headlining act, there is something intrinsically attached to Scary Farm that has never changed. That's its deep rooted belief in creating a wonderfully scary and original product for the masses to love during the halloween season.
