4 tips for visiting the Knott's Berry Farm

Watch out for seasonal highlightsLook out for seasonal events like Knott's Scary Farm (a popular event since 1973), or Knott's Merry Farm at Christmas - tickets are likely to sell out and the park will be extra busy, so take that into account when you plan your trip. Knott's Scary Farm is particularly popular, making half of the park's revenue for the year in just one month!

Dress appropriatelyYou'll be exposed to the elements for most of the day, so dress according to the weather, and consider bringing a change of clothes (or at least shoes) if you're planning to ride the water rides! You'll also need sunscreen and a hat for the California sunshine.
Discover the original restaurantTry to go to the original Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant! Opened in 1934, the chicken dinner is what brought the first visitors to the farm, and the park itself was built to keep hungry customers entertained while they waited for a free table.
Save time with parent swapA Parent Swap system is in place for those visiting with very small children. Just let the ride attendant know and one adult can wait with the child and then board once the second adult has finished riding, without having to wait in line again.

Knott's Berry Farm an Amusement Park with Tradition

Knott's Berry Farm dates back to the 1920s, marking its 100th anniversary these days.

Rides and Attractions

Knott's Berry Farm is divided into 4 themed areas: Ghost Town, Fiesta Village, The Boardwalk, and Camp Snoopy. The Ghost Town was based on real ghost towns in the western US states which were often abandoned when local mines or mills shut down, or when they didn't get to appear on new railroad routes being built. Ghost Town features two roller coasters, a log flume, and several chances to meet craftsmen who can explain their craft of blacksmithing, wood-carving, wool-spinning, or glass-blowing to interested visitors. Fiesta Village is a Mexican-themed area, featuring a range of themed roller coasters and fairground-style rides, plus themed restaurants. The Boardwalk is marine themed and features a range of roller coasters and rides, plus fairground games with prizes for accuracy. The final area is Camp Snoopy, and it's definitely the most family-friendly area of the park, with rides and gentler attractions based on Peanuts characters such as Charlie Brown and Linus.


The shows available vary depending on the time of year, and the schedule also changes depending on the closing times of the park. Head to the Wagon Camp to see a Wild West-themed stunt show, to Calico Park for a Hoedown or to see the Ghost Town Miners, or to the Camp Snoopy Theatre for performances of Space Beagle. You can also meet Peanuts characters throughout the day, except during performances in the Camp Snoopy Theatre, and some evenings there's also a fireworks display!

Knott's Soak City

Knott's Soak City is only open from the end of May to the beginning of September, but if you're visiting Knott's Berry Farm in those months then it's absolutely worth a visit! With 7 slide complexes (each containing multiple slides) plus a 1,780 foot (540m) long lazy river and a huge wave pool, it's the ideal place to cool off during the hot California summer. Just make sure to pack sunscreen!

History of Knott's Berry Farm

Knott's Berry farm dates back to the 1920s. The Knott family founded a simple roadside stand which sold berries and preserves, later expanding to sell pies and fried chicken dinners in Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant, which became a tourist attraction in the 1930s. The family decided to look for ways to entertain visitors while they waited for their chance to eat in the restaurant, and the site soon hosted several attractions and stores, plus a replica Ghost Town. In 1940 the expansion continued, with Walter and Cordelia Knott opening a county fair that would be open all summer long. Over the years more and more rides were added, with an entry fee being charged for the first time in 1968. The park remained in the Knott family until the 1990s, when Walter and Cordelia's children decided to sell it to Cedar Fair, choosing the company over Disney because they wanted the park to retain its unique theme and character.

Frequently Asked Questions

What age group is the park best suited for?

The park is suitable for all ages, with 13 rides designated as 'thrill' rides for older children, teens, and adrenaline-hunting adults, 15 rides which can be ridden by most children and will still be enjoyed by adults, and over a dozen which don't have height restrictions and are designed especially to delight younger children. Younger children will enjoy meeting Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang in Camp Snoopy, and that's also where parents will find several amenities which might be useful if visiting with very small children, including nursing and baby changing stations.
