    Default KNOTT'S CLOSES HALLOWEEN ATTRACTION AFTER COMPLAINTS FROM MENTAL HEALTH ADVOCATES

    BUENA PARK, Calif. (KABC) -- A popular Halloween attraction at Knott's Berry Farm and California's Great America was shut down, officials announced Wednesday, after some took to social media calling the display "offensive."

    The virtual reality attraction, which essentially focuses on a story line about a possessed patient named "Katie" running wild in a hospital, consists of strapping parkgoers into a chair before they are given VR goggles.

    If the game becomes too intense for them, customers can press the "panic button."

    The attraction was originally called "FearVR: 5150," with 5150 referring to the state code involving an involuntary psychiatric hold.
