What’s New at Knott’s Berry Farm?

Knott’s Berry Farm is one of the most beloved theme parks in Southern California. Rich in history and full of exhilarating fun for guests of all ages, it’s a perfect place to bring your group. If you haven’t visited in a while, you may be surprised by some of the exciting changes that have come in the past year, and some changes that are in the works!  

Knott’s Bear-y Tales: Return to the Fair- In May of 2021, Knott’s opened Knott’s Bear-y Tales: Return to the Fair, which pays tribute to its predecessor of the same name which closed in 1987. This reimagined dark ride takes inspiration from many of the classic scenes of the original attraction, using 4D technology to create an interactive adventure.  

Fiesta Village: The reimagined Fiesta Village area of the park celebrates the Hispanic Heritage and influence on Southern California. This vibrant and beautiful space comes alive with Mariachi music, traditional Folklorico dancing, irresistible new food offerings, and more!  

Camp Snoopy: Finally, we look forward to the reimagined Camp Snoopy set to open Summer 2024. This whimsical space will debut several new outdoor adventures for guests of all ages. Knott’s reports the new space will include four new attractions including Snoopy’s Tenderpaw Twister Coaster, shops, new menu items, character meet and greets with the beloved Peanuts crew, and a new Camp Snoopy Theatre.  

We have loved the exciting changes that have come to Knott’s Berry Farm over the past few years, and can’t wait to see what’s next in store! Let us help plan your next visit so that you can experience these awesome new offerings too!  

Perks of using a Theme Park’s App 

Theme parks can be hard to navigate, whether it is your first visit or your hundredth. These days, most major theme parks have apps available that can make visiting easier than ever! We’ll walk you through the in’s and out’s of theme park apps so that you and your students are most prepared for your next visit.  

  1. View Menus and Mobile Order: Theme park apps will often have a full list of restaurants with their operating hours, menus, and sometimes even the option to mobile order food so you can skip the lines and maximize your time. For guests with dietary restrictions or preferences, checking the app is also a great way to ensure a restaurant has foods that will suit your needs before walking to the location.   
  1. View attraction wait times and entertainment schedules: Check out what attractions have the best wait times in current time so you can plan your way around the park. Most parks will also post their entertainment schedules so that you never miss a show, parade, or performance!  
  1. View park maps: Didn’t I just pass this gift shop? It’s easy to get lost in the crowds of a theme park- having your location enabled can allow your app to show where you are and even map out a path to where you want to go.   
  1. Plan your activities: With a theme park app, you are holding the full list of offerings, dining, entertainment and more in the palm of your hand! Use the app to plan out what your priorities are and when you want to go. Sometimes, apps can even suggest if there is a best time to visit an attraction or when a lower wait time is posted.  
  1. Learn and engage: For parks like SeaWorld or the San Diego Zoo, you can use your app to maximize the learning experience with fun facts about the exhibit and attractions you a viewing. Some apps may even offer engaging content like quizzes, blogs, or interactive games to help pass the time in queues.  
  1. Find help fast: Need first aid, lost and found, or maybe just the nearest bathroom after that 6-loop coaster? Search your app for guest services or other locations to get to where you need to be in lightening time.
