I still feel like this will be a revitalization of that whole area. It's kind of the stepchild of ghost town.

My personal hope for the area is a replacement for the show in Mystery Lodge itself, as a new attraction. I actually enjoy the scenery with the pools, rocks and waterfalls more than the actual show. Maybe something like a flying theater (you can fly over the millions of acres!) or a Vekoma madhouse. Just something new and unexpected for Knotts.

Question to anybody who might know this! :smile:

Me and my partner David, will be coming back to Knott's, Disney and SFMM, including West Coast Bash
if it's held next year (Of COURSE it'll be back! I mean SFMM's Racers opening next summer?).

That said, I am planning the same way to get down to Buena Park, as I did two years ago. Take the train.

And when the train arrives in Los Angeles Station, we will have to wait nearly 1-1/2 hours before our short
train ride to Fullerton Stn. Then, we'd take the taxi to the Knott's Hotel, where we'll be staying. And arrive
just before 11 pm that night.

So The Question is...how much does it (roughly) cost for a taxi trip from there (LA Train Station) to there (Knott's Hotel)?
And this will be just after 9pm on a Thursday night.

Any answer(s) will be greatly appreciated, as we then consider whether to bypass the extra $ from LA - Fullerton one way,
(Fullerton back to LA by train for heading home, we will use) and use it for cab fare, and end up saving over an hour or so
waiting to get to our hotel, by train and taxi. (BTW the taxi from Fullerton Stn.to Knott's Hotel, in 2016, arriving near 11 pm,
cost me nearly $20 which was fine).

I certainly bought my share of Knott's yummy stuff to take home with me. (o:
And BTW, these ARE Knott's products. They just can't put their name on them. <sad story ~ boo smuckers>

It'll be pretty expensive. It's about 26 miles from downtown to Buena Park, and then factor in traffic on the 5. You're getting in late, so this may not work, but you can also switch from Amtrak at Union Station to take a Metrolink southbound and get off in Buena Park, not Fullerton.

I've taken the train many times. Once I took Uber from Union Station to Fullerton. That was about $50. I believe Uber used to have deals if you left from Union Station which made it cheaper than getting picked up elsewhere in Los Angeles.

^ Thanks for this info. :smile:

If it's around $50-60, that'll be fine. There's two of us to split the cost, and we're saving $ by not taking
the connecting train to Fullerton, and the cab fare we'd need to pay from that stn. to Knott's Hotel.

I've now bought my train tickets back and forth to LA, and the one way from Fullerton, back to the LA Station. :smile:
(This is all for next September, by the way. Hoping for a WCB, but if it doesn't happen, still have the parks & hotel to enjoy.)

Continuing between LA and Fullerton Station by train (and then a taxi to Knott's), or directly to Knott's Hotel by taxi? :?r

I can leave it for a while. Till into the new year, at least. :wink: Thanks again ^ for your info. on this.

EDIT: I used this site https://www.taxi-calculator.com/ and may have already decided how to handle doing the LA-to-Knott's Hotel segment.
(And back then...it would cost us $65+ for the train segment ~we like reserved seating~ and the taxi to the hotel afterwards.)

I guess OC Register needs to check their sources because there was no announcement yesterday......
