Linus Launcher family ride at Knott's Berry Farm

Park: 10 AM - 6 PM Waterpark: Closed View Hours
Linus Launcher
Take a ride among the birds!

Have you ever watched birds and wished you could fly like them? Here’s your chance! On Knott’s Berry Farm’s Linus Launcher, you can experience the sensation of free flight, taking everyone in the family to new heights of fun and excitement!

This unique ride recreates the classic PEANUTS™ moment when that crazy Snoopy grabs Linus’ beloved blanket and propels the little buddy on a wild ride.

On Linus Launcher, you’ll lie face-down and side-by-side with your own buddy on one of Linus’ “blankets” -- all while your feet are dangling off the back end. As the ride starts, hold on tight because you’ll quickly pick up speed and rise high above the ground.

You’ll soar among the birds – around and around, up and down – and get a Woodstock’s-eye view of Balloon Race, Flying Ace, and Sierra Sidewinder. Once you fly like a bird on Linus Launcher once, you’ll want to do it again and again!

Height Requirement: 36 inches alone or accompanied by a supervising companion.
