Knott's Berry Farm
Knott's Berry Farm, home to the Peanuts characters, has been a long-time favorite for families visiting the Orange County area. You'll find culturally-themed areas including Fiesta Village, Indian Trails and Independence Hall, where visitors get a look at the influence of these cultures on California life. There are also themed rides such as the Xcelerator and Montezooma's Revenge. Other areas such as The Boardwalk feature rides like Supreme Scream which, measuring in at an astounding 312 feet (95.098 meters), is the tallest structure in the county. Overall, if you're looking for something to please the kids (and maybe give yourself a rest), Knott's is a truly excellent choice. Operational hours vary from day to day, please check website for more details.
We went as a family to knotts berry farm. My husband is disabled and has to use a walker to get around so we had to get him a disability pass thinking that would honor it and not split up the grandparents from the grand kids. We we wrong, their policy is that the family has to wait in the general public line till they reach the spot where they will ride and the disabled person has to wait for them to get there. If this park is so family oriented then I feel they are discrimiating against the disabled. No family should be split up because of a disablilty one member has and the family shouldn't be separated. It seems they are discrimiating against injured war veterans, the elderly, and persons with handicaps beyond their control. We were told this is the policy of the park......It doesn't seem like a family oriented park to us and I would not recomend it to a family with a member who has a handicap.
I love this place sooo much.The rides,for me,are a real thrill.I went on the ghostrider,boomerang,montzoomas revenge,and the pony express.I was only NINE!You never,ever get too old for it,well maybe if your like around the 70s.If you never been,to Knott's,you should go,if I can handle thrill like these,you can handle them.I just disliked one thing,the lines are sooo long if you go on Saturday.You got to love it.Its probably a little bit messy,but thats because mean people keep leaving there trash everywhere.

Since changing ownership Knott's has been stripped of its charm and unique atmosphere. Most employees are untrained and sloppy looking. The addition of so many roller coasters was a mistake. Too many, too squished together and evasive to the parks overall charm it once had. Ghostrider is awesome. It is overshadowed however, by the new height restrictions through out the park. Only two rides that an adult and youngster can enjoy together. Even in Camp Snoopy my 4 year old could not go on all the rides. On the day I visited there was a very large bulldozer (obviously there for some kind of construction) sitting in the midst of Camp Snoopy! The photographer for pictures with Snoopy was rude to me and the kids. If you are seeking a few good rollercoaster rides, by all means go. If you want a good overall visit or are a family, DON"T go. Not worth it.
I was extremely disappointed at the skewed and ignorant political mockery that went on during the Knott’s Scary stage shows. Both shows made inflammatory references about President Bush and/ or the McCain/ Palin ticket. No jokes were made about the Obama ticket. SHAME ON KNOTTS!!!!!!!! I brought my teen to Knott’s for mindless fun and had to witness liberal Hollywood once again trying to indoctrinate teens into their views without presenting both sides. What is even sadder than that, is that the ignorant public, young and old, will probably value what these uneducated, mindless writers and entertainers would say!!!!!!!! SHAME ON THE PUBLIC!!!!!!
I Have been coming to Knotts Berry for about 5 years straight for their annual Halloween haunt and I must say... I love it! I dont know about some of you people on here but I swear it never gets old, there is always something to do and see. I can admitt though maybe the park could get updated a bit and add a few more rides... but still I do like the oark the way it is now as well. If you havent gone to knotts during October for the haunt, you are definitely missing out... BIG TIME. I get the crap scared out of me everytime it never fails. Although if you go make sure to visit during the week and or sunday, OH and make sure to have a plan of what you want to see. The park can get pretty packed quick so always plan ahead... just like DisneyLand ; ) But overall this place is awesome and everyone shpuld visit in my opinion. I will be back this October for sure 2009 and I cant wait, its July and im already planning!
Amazingly, I visited on a summer Sunday, June 29th, 2008 and never waited in line for more than 7 minutes for any ride at any time. Admittedly, I entered the park at their 10am opening and went straight to Silver Bullet, their premier suspended coaster with 6 inversions where I rode the first trip of the day. From their I went to the back of the park to Xcellerator where there was no line at all. After riding once in the front row, the ride operators let us move back a few rows and ride again without exiting.
Walking through the park we ran into a street show, Cowboy 101 where my 9 year old son was one of five children picked from the small crowd and deputized to help re-capture Black Bart, who broke out of jail during the show. The deputies (and their families) wandered around the ghost town on Bart's trail before finally capturing him and putting him back into jail. The deputies got to keep their felt cowboy hat, bandanna and Knott's sherrif badge. That would have set me back about 30 bucks at the gift shops.
We avoided the many flat carnival rides they have at Knotts and focused on the big coasters and attractions. Our last ride of the day, GhostRider, a monster of a wooden coaster that rockets for almost a mile at 60mph, again had no line at all in the middle of the afternoon.
I can't guarantee you the same experience as I had, but I was pleasantly surprised to find the tourists avoiding the park in droves on the Sunday I visited.
Having lived in Southern California for a number of years, our family has become a fan of the Theme Parks. Knott's USED to be one of the favorites....but now is the low man on the totem pole, as it were. While Disney charges significantly more for admission, the higher price allows for not only a higher echilon clientele, but employees as well. The Park has become threadbare and in need of a facelift. Some of the employees are just going through the motions to get a paycheck. This is a sad turn of events for what used to be one of the premier theme parks in SoCal.
