  • Great park with excellent roller coasters. Advise getting the fast lane pass, definitely worth the extra $$. You can wait in line for over an hour otherwise.  more »

  • So This place is pretty awesome in the fact that they let Veterans and a guest get in free for the first couple weeks of November. No other park comes close to doing so much for the men and women who have served our country! Rides and stores are great, I love the old time photo shoot! Lots of easy rides for the kids, and big coasters for the adults. I went on Veterans Day and it was insanely crowded but this is expected given that kids are off school and Veterans get in free. So lines were a little long, and the food was quite possibly the only unbearable part. My family got hungry and found a table while I waited in line at a burger stand towards the back of the park. The sit down restaurants had a 2 hour+ wait so we opted for a "quick" stand. About 45 minutes in line I finally order 3 burgers 3 fries and 3 sodas. Total comes out to $60! That's a lot but it's an amusement park and the portions were huge. Worst part was we had to wait another hour after I ordered just to get the three burgers. Granted it was a crowded day but still they should have anticipated that and staffed the place better. 2 hours to get 3 burgers and fries was far too long. But other than that I highly recommend this place! I'm sure once I come back the lines won't be so bad! Just try to go on the off days.
  • Short lines, great food, awesome rides, good prices. The newly renovated GhostRider is as thrilling as it used to be when it was first built but without the pain and fear from just before the renovations began. The only negative was that Pony Express didn't open until late in morning and kept getting shut down. Iron Reef and Jaguar also shut down at least once.
  • Got absolutely soaked... in fun (thanks to the Grand Rapids water ride). Lots of nostalgic good times to be had for all ages. Pro tip: the Fast Lane pass is money well spent - if time is of the essence! For the little ones, Camp Snoopy is the spot to be.
  • Very happy to have purchased Knott's new annual pass bundle for our large family. It's a big discount just to start off with and as you keep adding more features to your annual pass the more you save. The park is very clean and the rides are a blast! The log ride is a Knott's classic and the amount of unique shops are the best. Be sure to use your annual pass for big savings on food and Knott's items! Go in early and jump on most rides before noon!
  • Lots of rides and short lines. I took my 4-year-old here on a Tuesday and he loved it. We went on everything he could possibly go on and several of them twice. We also had lunch and did a little shopping. We did all of that in 5 hours and had a good, relaxing time. We didn't get to watch any shows though. Maybe next time! Also, try the berry punch.
