The Basics

Thrilling roller coasters are Knott’s claim to fame, and each of its six themed areas, representing part of the Southern California experience, is home to at least one. Ghost Towns is a trip into the past with authentic 19th-century buildings and gun-slinging bandits duking it out in the legendary Wild West Stunt Show. Camp Snoopy is home to the Peanuts Gang and offers 20 kid-approved rides and hands-on adventures. At Wild Water Wilderness you’ll find a raging white-water river, cascading waterfalls, soaring geysers, and old-style ranger stations. Head next door to Knott’s Soak City Water Park to beat the heat on body slides, speed slides, and an artificial wave lagoon.

Purchasing tickets ahead of time can save time at the gate and guarantee against disappointment in case of a busy sold-out day. Admission is also discounted if you have a Go Los Angeles Card.

Knott's Berry Farm was great for my teenage kids. We had looked at Disneyland but it was prohibitively expensive! A friend, and reviews here on Viator, helped us decide to choose Knott's. I'm really glad we chose this as it was more affordable, the queues were short and the mixture of roller coasters and activities were great. All the staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend it!

My daughter and I enjoyed Knotts Berry Farm. Exciting rides and a lot less crowded than Disneyland. We caught the ART bus to get there and spent about 6 hours at the park.

Set up of the reservation was simple. The driver arrived as scheduled and the transport to and from the park was comfortable and short. We truly enjoyed our day at Knott's Berry Farm and would not hesitate to use Viator again for any travel destination services. It was a piece of our perfect vacation.

October was the best time to go. No lines since most of the crowd was waiting for Knott's Scary Farm, we were able to walk up to almost all the rides without any wait time.

Knott's History

Knott’s Berry Farm all started with the humble boysenberry (celebrated each spring during the Boysenberry Festival). After adding fried chicken to its repertoire, the rides sprung up to occupy customers waiting in line for these tasty treats—and the rest is history. Some say Knott’s, California’s oldest theme park, was the inspiration for Walt Disney’s empire.
