Buena Park: Bursting With Family Fun!

1 of 4
For family fun in California, one destination tops all others; welcome to Buena Park! Bursting with theme parks, family-friendly entertainment and more; it’s this summer’s go to family destination. On our family’s last visit, we even grabbed the grandparents and made it a multi-generational trip! Buena Park has fun for the young and the young at heart.

Knott's Berry Farm

We quickly found out that Knott’s Berry Farm was a great theme park for any adventure level. While we have one child itching to jump on the first roller-coaster she sees, we have another one that is more apprehensive. Knott’s Berry Farm had plenty of rides for each of them, and they both had a blast.
Camp Snoopy was definitely the highlight for both of our kids, as it contained kid coasters and fun, small rides. If you are a Peanuts fan, you have to check out this area of the park, where the theming is so cute! This area of the park had rides that even the grandparents could enjoy and get a kick out of. A huge surprise to me was the authentic Denver and Rio Grande Narrow Gauge train used in the early 1900s! When you go to a theme park, you expect a little train that adults usually have to cram into, but this is a real train complete with train robbers!

Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant

While at Knott’s Berry, you have to head over for a meal at Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner. This is where it all began! In 1934, Mrs. Knott’s served up fried chicken on the farm and tourists have been coming to Buena Park for that amazing chicken ever since.

The chicken is obviously the main attraction here, but you can’t overlook the amazing biscuits and boysenberry punch. My husband isn’t a huge fan of biscuits, but he couldn’t get enough of these!

Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament

The fun doesn’t stop after your visit to Knott’s Berry Farm; Buena Park has many great activities to entertain your family once the sun goes down. Our family enjoyed two amazing dinner shows! Our first was Medieval Times, where we were immersed in an epic battle cheering for a knight on our side.

Pirate's Dinner Adventure

The second show we saw was Pirates Dinner Adventure. This live theater included a pirate’s feast for the whole family. Our kids loved the huge pirate ship, and my daughter loved that the show had a princess and a female pirate. Both shows were a hit with our family by providing not only some great interactive entertainment, but also happy tummies.
