Scion owners gathered with their families and friends at Southern California theme park Knott’s Berry Farm on October 17, 2012, to donate a Toys for Tots gift and gain entry to haunted mazes, musical performances and rides. It was the ninth year of Scion Night at Knott’s Scary Farm, the carmaker’s largest owner appreciation event.
Scion owners brought an estimated 25,000 toy donations for Toys for Tots. The Marines were there in full uniform to oversee the donation drive and brought some of their own military vehicles with them, too. In addition to the donation drive, guests checked out aftermarket exhibits, had a blast on the inflatable amusements and carnival games, and partied to DJ Jeremiah Red and Hard Copy Rebels. In the La Plaza area of the Knott’s parking lot, there were five of Orange County’s best food trucks: Dogzilla, The Lime Truck, Longboards, Barcelona on the Go, and Sexy Burger.
Guests could also test drive the Scion FR-S, and the four hot lap winners were able to ride with Ken Gushi in his stock FR-S. Throughout the day, four different followers of Scion’s @ScionNightKSF Twitter account won raffle prizes, including HD Radio gear and sound systems from Pioneer. The tailgate party ended with Ken Gushi’s drifting demo before the park opened its gates for the guests to enter.
By the end of the night, Knott’s Scary Farm saw an estimated 11,500 Scion owners in approximately 3,000 Scion vehicles attend. Thank you to all who came out, and a big thank you to HD Radio, KROQ, and Pioneer for all your support.
