Knott's Berry Farm
What began as a roadside berry stand and Chicken Dinner Restaurant in the 1920s has evolved into one of Southern California’s most popular theme park destinations, attracting more than five million visitors each year. Knott’s Berry Farm offers a unique combination of world-class thrill rides with traditional family favorite attractions and shows. A day at Knott’s Berry Farm means taking on mammoth coasters, as well as witnessing Old Western adventures and enjoying a hug from the world’s most loveable beagle – Snoopy! At Knott’s, fun is always in season, with dozens of thrilling rides, shows, and attractions in four exciting themed areas.
Old West Ghost Town
The Knott’s Berry Farm Ghost Town is the heart and soul of the Park. This 1880s Old West Boom Town features cowboys, gunfights, can-can dancers, stagecoaches, a steam train, and panning for real gold. Ghost Town is the home of re-themed, Calico River Rapids, a white-water river excursion where rafters will encounter a variety of wild surprises such as roaring rapids, indigenous wildlife, and whimsical homesteaders. More Ghost Town thrills are found at Silver Bullet, a western-themed steel inverted roller coaster that suspends riders beneath the track and climbs to a height of 146 feet (45m), and at GhostRider, the tallest, fastest, longest wooden roller coaster on the west coast. Original favorites such as the Timber Mountain Log Ride and Calico Mine Ride, round out this spectacular area with iconic lifelike animatronics and spectacular special effects. In addition to thrilling rides, Ghost Town also features one of a kind shows for the whole family. The Calico Saloon welcomes visitors in to live entertainment, while the bartender serves up tall, cool sarsaparilla and boysenberry beer. No visit to Ghost Town is complete without witnessing a showdown between the local gunslingers at the Wild West Stunt Show, which sends guests on a rip-roarin’ visit to the West when it really was wild.
Knott’s Camp Snoopy was the first-ever theme park area designed just for kids and remains one of the most beloved children's play lands anywhere. Home of Charles M. Schulz’ Peanuts characters, the six-acre kid’s area features design elements that reflect a day at summer camp in the California High Sierras. Featuring over 15 kid-friendly attractions, Camp Snoopy favorites include Charlie Brown’s Kite Flyers, which takes campers on a highflying adventure above the land’s winding paths and babbling streams, Pig Pen’s Mud Buggies that send tykes on an adventurously bumpy ride in a pint-sized off road vehicles, and Linus Launcher which soars up, up and away in a hang glide vehicle fit for two. For bigger kids, the modern Camp Snoopy classic, Sierra Sidewinder cannot be missed. This innovative coaster sends riders through dips and turns all while rotating on its axis! Camp Snoopy also hosts kid friendly entertainment at The Camp Snoopy Theatre, which showcases a variety of seasonal performances starring Snoopy, Charlie Brown, along with the whole PEANUTS Gang.
Fiesta Village pays tribute to California’s Hispanic roots in a beautifully themed area containing Mexican-style architecture, food, and eye-catching works of art. Thrills are in no short supply in Fiesta Village, which features park favorites such as Montezooma’s Revenge®, a shuttle coaster that sends daring riders forward AND backward through a looped track, and La Revolución, which swings riders an astounding 64 feet (20m) in the air. Sol Spin brings hair-raising thrills to Fiesta Village by sending brave guests on a topsy-turvy spinning adventure over six stories high as they rotate in all directions in one of the ride’s six spinning floorless gondolas. Fiesta Village is also the prowling grounds of Knott's Jaguar!, a 3-minute long coaster that journeys through Knott’s mysterious Mayan temple.
Knott’s Boardwalk pays tribute to the celebrated Southern California beach lifestyle and is home to California’s first dive coaster, HangTime. The infinity coaster towers 150 feet over the Boardwalk area, containing gravity-defying inversions, mid-air suspensions, and a beyond vertical drop- the steepest in California. The Boardwalks also features Coast Rider, a family coaster, Surfside Gliders, on which riders pilot their own two-person aircraft for a scenic view of Boardwalk Bay, and the classic Pacific Scrambler. Boardwalk is also where you’ll find thrill-seeker favorite, Xcelerator, which sends daredevils screaming 0-80 mph in just 2.3 seconds! Other gravity-defying thrills include adrenaline-rushing fun on Supreme Scream®. Located in the Boardwalk, the 2,100 seat Charles M. Schultz Theatre hosts live stage extravaganzas throughout the year, each with special effects, elaborate costumes, and breathtaking choreographed performances with the PEANUTS gang.
