Spending a Day at Knott's Berry Farms


During this month's trip to California, we tried to make the most out of all the days we had there. Knowing that we wouldn't have time to dedicate to Disney, we opted to check out Knott's Berry Farms. None of us had ever been there before so we were looking forward to seeing what it was all about.

Driving up to Knott's Berry Farms the traffic is difficult (but then again isn't everything in California) and parking was a pain. However once you made your way through and found a spot and started taking in all the Snoopys all around you, you quickly forget how frustrated you were just a few minutes ago.


We opted to buy our tickets for the park online ahead of time because they are a lot cheaper! Through the Knott's Berry Farms' website, we purchased our tickets for $46.00 each rather than the $79.00 per person they charge at the gate. That's a huge discount! We also bought our parking pass online for an additional $18. 


We went on a Sunday and surprisingly the crowd and lines were light. Even though the park is small, there are a lot of good quality rides for all different levels of riders from fast and upside-down thrills to classic wooden roller coasters and kid friendly rides. Katelyn doesn't like rides but there was still a lot for her to do too.

Other Activities

We happened to be town during the Boysenberry Festival plus it was Easter time so there was a lot of fun activities happening around the park. 

Soak City

It was a little too cold for us this time, but in the future it would be nice to check out Knott's Berry Farms Soak City, which is a full water park. Maybe next time!

We spent a total of about six hours at the park, which was a perfect amount of time to experience the park without being exhausted in the end. We rode, laughed, ate, and had a great time.
