Day 1

Get your hearts pumping by starting your day off at Knott’s Berry Farm where you can pair up with your sweetie to ride Ghostrider. This side-by-side ride is the longest, tallest, and fastest wooden roller coaster on the West Coast. Then, hold tight to each other on HangTime, the only dive coaster in California. Stroll hand-in-hand down the boardwalk before you “Xcelerate” your love to a speed of 82 mph on Xcelerator’s 2,202 feet of cool, coral track. Consider picking up one of Knott’s speciality drinks - the boysenberry latte. It’s a perfect way to end the day with your bae. If you need a lunch break to relax after the thrills, check out Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner, located just outside the park’s gates. This classic SoCal eatery has been serving up mouth-watering fried chicken, biscuits and of course, boysenberry pie since 1934.

Whether you are looking for a quiet break from the crowds in the evening hours or want to continue the high-energy fun, Buena Park has lots of options. Teatro Martini’s playfully-interactive variety show is perfect for your Valentine’s Day getaway with lively music, enthralling magic, and a delicious four-course dinner. Risqué jokes, rowdy antics, and playful innuendo will increase the romance in the air.

Pirate's Dinner Adventure or Medieval Times additionally offer special Valentine's offerings for couples who want to spend the evening in a castle, or aboard the high seas of love.

More intimate dining options in Buena Park include Il Palco, Italian fare with a modern twist and upscale setting, Kang Ho-dong Baekjeong, SoCal’s premier Korean BBQ restaurant. Savor each other’s company at The Cauldron Spirits and Brews over a round of bewitching drinks like the Knotty Kid—boysenberry cotton candy topped with a magical splash of vodka and lemon. To end the night on a high note, swing by Rock & Brews for a round of beers with your partner (choose wisely, there’s 65 selections on tap).

Stay the Night

With over a dozen hotels to choose from in Buena Park, you won’t have to stray far to find one that’s perfect for you. With affordable rates and amenities like free shuttle service, outdoor swimming pools, and hot tubs, you’ll feel fully relaxed on your romantic getaway.

Day 2

Wake up and make your morning memorable with a stop at Porto’s Bakery & Cafe - named Yelp’s #1 Restaurant in the US! Share an order of papas rellenas (potato balls) and a pastel de guayaba (guava strudel) and you’ll know why all the foodies flock here. Take home a slice or two of Cuban cake to enjoy later, you won’t regret it.

Another Buena Park breakfast option is Basilur Tea & Coffee where you can nosh on the fluffiest soufflé pancakes in town. Go for the purple-hued ube flavor with an ube latte, or try the tiramisu soufflé pancake with a cappuccino.

Before you head home, fully immerse yourself in a blockbuster film at CGV Cinemas where the latest in 4DX technology brings shows to life. Motion chairs and multisensory environmental effects like wind, fog, rain, and scents work in concert with the action on screen to make you a part of it all.
