Sunday Knott's so Funday

Jonathan Ikemura

Another Sunday Funday has come and gone. This edition takes place at Knott's Scary Farm. The crew made their way down and we all assembled around the same time. Sorry in advance for the not so great photos. The crew stops for nothing!

We thought this was going to be a simple starter ride. Then it started spinning like crazy!

This looks like that board game Mouse Trap! I shouldn't have eaten right before this ride.

Maze time! I really wish I had some video of the guys getting scared. Lot's of "Oh Shits" echoing in the mazes.

Goofy's Flight School was way sketchier. This ride needs some beams about a foot away from your face installed.

One person has to get stuck in the restraints at least once at Knott's. This time it was Jay.

After the Toothfairy maze, Jay might just deal with his shattered tooth and cancel that dentist appointment.

Ghost Rider was a lot faster than I ever remember as a kid! I don't know how we didn't go flying off the tracks. At this point it had just hit midnight. Happy Birthday Bert! Enjoy the internal bleeding from this ride.

This log was booking it! I was so close to falling out after the big drop... Why would they ever hit the brakes at the end like that?!

Well Knott's Scary farm was pretty fun. Good times with good dudes! This has got me even more pumped up for our trip to Universal Halloween Horror Nights. That's where the production really is, but also this was way cheaper. I'll probably have to switch up my lens setup for that night, as the fisheye in low light wasn't exactly cutting it for me. Anyways, catch you guys next time!
