Service animals are welcome at Knott’s Berry Farm. A service animal is defined as a dog or miniature pony that has been individually trained to perform tasks for a person with disabilities. We may ask you what task your service animal performs for you. Service animals must be controlled with a “restraining device” at all times while on our property. There is a limit of one service animal per guest. Due to the nature of most rides, service animals must remain with a non-riding member of your party. We are not permitted to take control of your service animal. Service animals are not permitted in water attractions, wet decks, wading pools, or lazy rivers. A relief area is located in the Boardwalk area next to the Wheeler Dealer Bumper Cars. Please stop by the Information Center located at the Front Gate for more information.

Service animals are welcome to attend Knott's Scary Farm events. They are permitted to walk through the park areas, including scare zones. However, for safety reasons, service animals are not permitted in any exterior or interior maze.
