By now, you know that Knott’s Berry Farm is the ultimate place to step back in time and immerse yourself in the Wild Wild West! But did you also know that you can immerse yourself even further by playing a role in the new Ghost Town Alive! experience? SoCal Field Trips was invited last weekend to personally check it out and we survived to tell the tale!
2019 Ghost Town Alive!
Ghost Town Alive! offers guests a firsthand experience to play an important part in the unfolding story of the wild west, with specific tasks and activities and an essential role as an honorary citizen of Calico. The main storyline unfolds throughout the day with scheduled events. Various other storylines also take place from the perspective of different characters in town which often trigger special quests and events.

During Ghost Town Alive, you have a choice as to which team you want to be on, either the good guys or the bad guys. We decided to be on Team Mayfield Gang and were handed black bandanas and stray hats to play our part..
Sheriff Wheeler Team members were handed white bandanas so they could easily tell us apart. As the story goes, Team Mayfield Gang thought they inherited the town and all they wanted to do was claim what was allegedly theirs. They weren’t really the bad guys…at least they thought!
Ghost Town Alive invited us at noon to the prison cell for the first part of the interactive experience. Here the sheriff welcomed the good citizens of the town and invited them to follow him to the train station where Tiny Mayfield was expected to arrive.
