KNOTT’S BERRY FARM ATTRACTIONS
Ghostrider, a wooden roller coaster, is near the entrance so it’s a good idea to do this first. Next, take a step back in time in the Old West Ghost Town. The area is outfitted with western artifacts and activities. Pan for gold and watch stunt, Native American and vaudeville shows. Also, see blacksmith, woodcarver, glass-blower and sign-cutter demonstrations. In summer, interact with western characters during Ghost Town Alive.
Classic attractions include the Calico Train Mine Ride, Timber Mountain Log Ride, and the Calico Railroad (watch out for robbers!). In contrast, the Boardwalk is home to modern thrill rides and games. Hang Time is a new steel roller coaster towering 150 feet over the Boardwalk, it is the only dive coaster on the West Coast.
Traveling with young kids? Head to Camp Snoopy for rides and to meet the Peanuts gang. Around the corner is Fiesta Village celebrating Mexican pop culture with themed eateries, shops and rides.
Take time out for a relaxing lunch at the iconic Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant. Located in the California Marketplace, the restaurant is famous for its fried chicken, biscuits and boysenberry pie. The marketplace is a perfect shopping spot for souvenirs, boysenberry jam, and handcrafted items.
