When my family is looking for something fun to do, our go-to is to pack up our reusable cups and head to Knott’s Berry Farm. While we can’t visit the Farm right now, we can still fill our days with activities that remind us of Knott’s. From reminiscing about 100 years of rich history or keeping yourself busy with Knott’s inspired projects, there’s plenty to do at home to keep your family entertained at home.

Buckle up and press play! Head to YouTube for point-of-view videos that will give you the feel of being on your favorite coasters on Knott’s Berry Farm Youtube Channel. Make sure you catch a wave over to check out HangTime, the newest coaster and the first dive coaster in California.
Anniversary Ambassadors have tons of great coverage of their visits to the park. Check out Knott’s Network, Parks & Cons, Toiley T Paper, The Five Fires and Look Who’s Blogging for more videos.
Got old park maps lying around? They make for great craft supplies! Try scrapbooking or using them to make things like Christmas ornaments. Painting & hiding rocks with upbeat pictures or inspirational messages is an easy and inexpensive random act of kindness.
You’ll be styling when we return to the park if you make themed outfits like Little Gray Thread. You can plan ahead by styling your western looks for Ghost Town Alive! or making your Knott’s Spooky Farm looks. If you’re collecting pins, try making a display board.
Can’t wait until Scary Farm? Design your own mazes! You can go big by installing a haunted house in your home or draw the scream-worthy decor and blood-curdling creatures who lurk in the fog.
Whip Up the Berry Best
Everything in your pantry is meal-plan eligible! Whip up some of the berry best foods with supplies you have on hand. Say cheers to a Boysenberry Cocktail that uses just three ingredients, including boysenberry preserves. Top your salads like this bacon and broccoli option with Boysenberry Salad dressing.
Take your meal outdoors with a picnic blanket to give your meal a Knott’s nod. If you want to make an entire meal devoted to Knott’s, check out options like a Boysenberry Dinner and a DIY meal.
Save room for dessert so you won’t be saying, “Good grief!” when you check out these Charlie Brown-inspired treats.
Delve into Knott’s History
For 100 years, Knott’s Berry Farm has been delighting guests with western charm and world-class thrills. Dig into the rich history of America’s first theme park during your time at home.
Like many Southern California families, Knott’s history is our family history. During this special anniversary year, Knott’s is asking fans to share their memories. Don’t miss the Knott’s Berry Farm 100th Anniversary Sweepstakes. One family will win the reunion of a lifetime with admission, dining, souvenirs, and countless memories.
Turn your studies into great homeschool lessons by reading and writing about Calico, studying the physics of coasters, and learning to draw your favorite Peanuts characters. You’ve got Fast Lane access to engaging learning using our beloved park as inspiration for your lessons.
Reminisce on your Favorites
My big kids race straight for their favorite coasters when the park opens. Typically, GhostRider and HangTime are their preferred first stops. The littles race for Camp Snoopy and the carousel. I just try to keep up!
