Hold onto your hats as you take the plunge on the world’s first looping roller coaster at Knott's Berry Farm. 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.

  • Good rides, and what should have been a fun day with the family turned out to be a horribly frustrating day because of all of the LINE JUMPING! I have been to many amusement parks and have never...

  • Great day out with the family. We visited from London and decided here rather than Disney. The rides are brilliant and there is lots of food and places to sit and enjoy. The disappointing part...

  • BERRY. SO. MUCH. BERRY. Let me tell you if you love fruit ESPECIALLY berries, this will literally be paradise for you. All jokes aside, this is considered to be California's best theme park and debatable the original as well. After going here and experiencing this place for myself, I can definitely see why people say that. The ambiance is very welcoming and fresh, the aesthetic is so colorful and inviting, and the theme park as a whole utilizes the berry theme very well throughout it's entirety. The food is good and surprisingly diverse despite a good amount of the selections revolving around boysenberry. The rides are fast paced and quite the thrill ride despite some of the rides having quite the wait time depending on what time and what day you go to the theme park. The stores have a BUNCH of stuff to offer such as food, candy, souvenirs, clothes, glasses, silverware, cups, and THEY EVEN. HAVE. WEAPONS. That's right. You can actually get a pocket knife, knife, and a couple other kind of blades at one of their gift shops. Granted, you can only actually pick this up once you leave the park and it has to be traded from a ticket they give you and there's protocol to be followed, but STILL I found that amazing to be honest. Overall, just like Santa Monica Pier, this is a place that EVERYONE I feel like needs to go to once whether they're visiting or live in California. However, will I say it lives up to it's name as the original and best theme park in California? I'll leave that for you to decide!
  • If you really can't afford other parks, or wasn't able to go to one because of the law, Knott's Berry Farm should be perfect and more affordable to save you from your troubles! They have neat merchandise for yourself or your friends and family, intense rides that will make you scream, like my personal favorite... the Silver Bullet from Ghost Town, and enjoy some awesome attractions and food! Heck, their chicken is fast, easy and high-quality, but also deliciously tasty! When you have your kids with you, you can take them to Camp Snoopy to meet up with your favorite Peanuts characters for some cute photos! If you haven't went to a theme park for a long time because of the pandemic or you're waiting very eagerly to go there, then America's #1 Theme Park of this will be awesome for you. Have fun and be very safe!🎡🎠🎢🚂
