From Soak City to Camp Snoopy, Knott’s Berry Farm is a great choice for family fun. And why our baby gear rentals are a great addition too.
WHY KNOTT’s BERRY FARM IS GREAT CHOICE FOR FAMILIES
Located 10 minutes from Disneyland in Buena Park, Knott’s Berry Farm is best known as America’s first theme park. With roots as a roadside berry stand and restaurant in the 1920s, it now is world-famous with five themed areas, a 13-acre Soak City water park and an adjacent 321-room Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel.
Knott’s Berry Farm features 10 giant roller coasters and other thrill rides. The main draw for young kids is Camp Snoopy, a Peanuts-themed area. Highlights kids love at Camp Snoopy include:
Grand Sierra Scenic Railroad: Ride a mini replica of an authentic steam engine locomotive.
Flying Ace Balloon Race
Red Baron: Riders board World War I biplanes
Rocky Road Truckin’ Company: Kids ride in a semi-truck along a winding track
Timberline Twister: Perfect for a child’s very first “roller coaster” ride.
Thrill rides: For bigger kids and adults, Knott’s has true thrill rides, such as HangTime, California’s first - and only - dive coaster, and Xcelerator, a roller coaster, which goes from 0-82 miles per hour in 2.3 seconds.
Museums and Education: You can sneak in some education while having fun with Knott’s museums, highlighting the history of the American West, including the roots of Orange County. Additional historical nods are throughout the park, including the Iowa School House built in 1879 and a replica of Independence Hall with a replica Liberty Bell.
Sky Cabin: At one point the tallest structure in Orange County, guests travel more than 180 feet up in a slowly revolving cabin for a 360-degree view of all of Knott’s, downtown Los Angeles and the skylines of Disneyland.
Soak City! - Orange County's largest water park boasting a total of 22 speed, tube and body slides plus a giant wave pool, lazy river and interactive kids area.
