The following video is a virtual ride-through of the “Haunted Mine” as it appeared during the late 1970′s and early 1980′s at the Halloween Haunt.

The audio and photographs were provided by John Waite who oversaw the design/theme inside the Mine Ride (and Log Ride) during the Halloween Haunt as an employee of Bud Hurlbut  (who created/owned both rides at the time before Knott’s Berry Farm purchased them in the early 1980′s). The audio is an actual recording of the “Haunted Mine” during one of the early Haunts.  These items were collected when conducting research for the upcoming book outlining the history of Knott’s Scary Farm Halloween Haunt.

This video was created to thank John Waite (and all of those who worked with him) as an appreciation for the years of screams and entertainment provided.  John was interviewed for the book and portions of his interview will be published here on the website in the future. Until then…enjoy this video!
