DAFE (Dark Attraction & Funhouse Enthusiasts) hosted an event celebrating the opening day of Knoebels as well as the 45th anniversary of the opening of the Haunted Mansion and Dick Knoebel's birthday.

New for this year at Knoebels are a laser maze addition to the laser tag building as well as the opening of Over the Top.

After the operating day had concluded, we were treated to a behind the scenes tour of the Haunted Mansion as well as lights-on rides of Black Diamond.

Thanks to Knoebels and DAFE for organizing this event!
