    Knott's Closes Halloween Attraction

    "theme park officials said they have decided to shut down the attraction in Buena Park and at two other Cedar Fair parks – California’s Great America in Santa Clara and Canada’s Wonderland near Toronto."

    "mental health advocates who tried to get the park’s attention with letters and emails said they are pleased with the outcome. 'I feel good about what happened here,'” said John Leyerle, president of the National Alliance on Mental Illness Orange County. 'Thankfully, this attraction will no longer further mental health stigma.'"
