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 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.
