Originally a small California berry farm, the amusement park features over 65 hectares (160 acres) of thrill rides, water attractions, and games and arcades, spread throughout six themed areas. Speed down rushing rapids at almost 3.6 m (12 ft) per second on the Timber Mountain Log Ride or enjoy panoramic views of the park and surrounding area from 55 m (180 ft) up in the air on the Sky Cabin ride. Fast track tickets are available for an extra charge if you’d like to avoid long wait times for rides.

    For users of the Go Los Angeles card, this attraction is included. But the advice will turn short because we were turned back at the entrance. The Go Los Angeles card would be more valuable to go d some time. The argument would be if there was any information in this sense. But this is not the case, after scouring their site (by also completely messy). Inadmissible.

    I am not a big fan of Knott's Berry Farm... not sure what it is but have never liked it. Typically I point out of town visitors to the touristy places and should have again this time...  more »

    Most rides accommodate heights of 48". Only a few required 52" or higher. Our daughters loved this park. We opted for this instead of Disney. The more popular rides had an hour+ wait time, but it gave us good family time! Calico Street had our girls running "errands" between the old west stores...very fun for them. There are restaurants towards the entrance and a few in the park. The lines for water or drinks were very long, but we expected as much. They do have water bottle filling stations if you purchase their water bottle for $15 up to $30😳, where you can fill them at no charge. I believe the more expensive one receives free refills on all drinks and the smaller one only free water. Wear good walking shoes and take a backpack to carry all of your family's items in one place. Sunscreen a must...and have fun!!!

    Had a great time at Knotts today. I like the old western town theme.The park was clean and I really liked all the time they put into the landscaping, flowers and plants. .All the shows I saw were great...the old west stunt show....the Snoopy magic show ..... and the saloon show. Had a nice lunch at Johny rockets ....the service and food was great. Enjoyed a few rides and strolled through the park and shops. Purchased a chicken dinner at the" take out" to enjoy along with one of their boysenberry pies . Yum! The meal was delicious. I had a great time and look forward to going back real soon.

    Awesome experience here. The rides are fun, facilities are relatively clean, and the food is the best I've had in any theme park I've ever visited. They offer a military discount of I believe roughly 35% on admissions, however you will pay close to $20 to park as well. All in all, an affordable alternative to nearby Disneyland if you're just looking to ride rides and have a nice day with good food.

    The rides are really great for kids 16 and younger, but it's not really the place to be if you're a thrill seeker looking for coasters. The aesthetics are fantastic though, it's got the classic Cedar Fair sky line that would get anyone excited for a fun day in the park and once inside it's clean and beautifully laid out. If you're in the area I'd highly recommend checking it out but come early otherwise parking might take awhile.

    Loved it! This place is awesome! Good rides, good food, good atmosphere, good layout. We literally spent all day here, and didn't see and do everything. Has plenty of cool stuff for every age group. I love the fun and interesting history tucked​ into every inch of the place. One of a kind treats, and plenty of shade, this place is a definite must see!
