We wanted to spend some time in Southern California but were interested to see what kind of adventures we could have without going to Disneyland. I wanted to experience some other adventures that California has to offer, and quickly discovered there are many!
Knott's Berry Farm
During our stay in Buena Park California
, we were able to spend the day at Knott’s Berry Farm
on my husband’s birthday! Both my husband and I haven’t been since we were kids, and it was so much fun to re-live some fond memories we had of going there as children with our own children!
Things have changed a lot since I was at Knott’s last, and they had so many amazing family rides and rollercoasters. I was a total kid again on the Xcelerator. I even rode it by myself, because I knew I’d regret it if I didn’t. Seriously, one of the best roller coasters I have been on in a while! If you’re looking for a good mix of rollercoaster and rides for kids, I would strongly recommend Knott’s. The best of both worlds!
The kids were so excited to go, they had their Snoopy ears ready at the hotel early in the morning, and couldn’t wait to head out for the day. I was surprised that there were so many rides for my kids, especially in Camp Snoopy. My oldest and I had a great time on some of the rollercoasters. We braved Montezooma’s Revenge together. I totally remember it being the BIG one when I was a kid!
