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.
Sure KBF has great theme and thrill rides, like other parks do. The shows are great, too. But what sets Knott's apart from the rest is the wonderful food it offers. You can't find a better chicken dinner--at any restaurant--much less at a theme park. And the other food in the park is also very tasty. My family lived in Southern California for seven years and spent many holidays at Knott's. Whenever we return to the area we try to squeeze in a chicken dinner.
I took my 2 nephews who were visiting from Texas on a Saturday. They really enjoyed all the rides and had a good time, the only bad thing was the characters from Snoopy were no where around. I emailed to the park about my concern and they sent a really bogus reply. They said "Charlie Brown was being punished and that Snoopy was on time-out" for kids who were looking forward to seeing characters it was really disappointing.
My family and I decided to visit California and went to Disney land on saturday and even thou my daughters enjoyed the time there,the long and I mean long lines,over crowded shops,rides,you name it was crowded,made my day a very long and rough one.Then On Sunday my sister suggests me to take my daughters to Knottsberry farm,as we went throu the front gate I though,Is this park open I mean there were probably just 10 people walking around,and every ride had zero wait time.Iwas in awe and most of all is the park has really great rides for kids and adults.The Peanuts characters,are accesible and very polite with the kids,they even let you take as many pictures or so at any moment without hessitation.My daughters were really happy and we had a blast.Disney is very nice,but if you lake me hate the hassel of waiting for 20 minutes for a bottle of water or a fruit,give this park a chance and see for your self.I strongly recomend more action less lines.
Knott's was the first amusement part we took our childern to when they were one and two years old. Great park for young children! We held season passes for years and were able to use the other parks owned by them. Make sure to check out their water parks, special events and definately their Knott's Scary Farm in October. I can't wait to be stationed in CA again to become a season pass holder again. Great for the family. Always something new each year to check out.
I grew up 15 minutes from Knotts, so I guess I'm biased. But I love Knotts. I went back last year after 15 years or so. They have worked hard to update their park. They have a killer ride that flips you around into a fountain, the most fun ride I have ever been on. It's not as big or as fancy as Disneyland, but the headache and pricetag are far less. Not to mention that you don't have to wait in your car for an hour just to park there.
