The Knott's Berry Farm (KBF) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

The fun bun is actually delicious, but it's definitely something you want to share! I'm glad that Knott's is extending this event, hopefully I can make it down to SoCal and check it out. I'm having Boysenberry withdrawals since the Boysenberry Festival was cancelled, it's a must-do for our family every year!

On Saturday 9/26/20, Theme Park Review was invited to experience the Knott's Taste of Fall-o-ween event, the next in a wonderfully endless string of events at Knott’s Berry Farm.

 

The event runs Fridays – Sundays until November 1. To experience the event, a tasting card must be purchased in advance at knotts.com, and includes entry into the park. The tasting card has raised $5 in price compared from the last event to now be $35 for adults with 5 food tastings, and Junior tasting cards for patrons ages 3-11 is up $5 from the last event to now be $20 with 3 food tastings, and a trip through the Camp Snoopy Trick-or-Treat Trail.

 

A few tips if you are going to attend the event:

-We recommend arriving at noon for the start of the event, as the crowd level picks up throughout the day.

-Many food items can be found at multiple food locations, so check to see if one of your desired items can be found at a location off the beaten path.

-The food lanyard is handed to you with the hole punch at the top of the card, causing you to have to awkwardly turn the car to read it. However, there is now a secondary hole punch on the bottom of the lanyard so you can flip the card around and easily read it from your perspective. We love this new and simple addition!

 

We love that Knott's is bringing seasonal event to life every few months, encouraging patrons to come back every so often. Thank you so much to Miranda and the Knott’s Team for your hospitality!

We noticed even more entertainment than the previous event.

Let's take a look at the Trick-or-Treat Trail included with the Junior Tasting cards.

The trail beings by Montezuma's Revenge.

We loved all the decorations on the trail, including a substantial amount of scenic pieces from Halloween Haunts of past.

Great trip report! I was there on Friday, Sept. 25. I think as a an alternative event to Scary farm, it was a very well put together event. Many, many tables so you can spread out. It only feels mildly crowded around the Bird Cage theater and Fiesta village. I enjoyed the magic / comedy act while sitting a the picnic tables. And if you love sugar, wow! So many good options. The cheesecake trifle is fantastic, pumpkin cannoli, and so on. If you need a cheat day, Knott's has you covered. They play music everywhere, have some light fog, and looks amazing at night.

It's good to see that Knott's has managed a Halloween event, even if it isn't Scary Farm (I definitely want one of those chicken tacos and a cookiewich with pumpkin soft serve).

^That's because the poor Californians are starved for parks!!!!

Yep, it's killing us to live near all these awesome parks and have none of them open.

So, word on the street is that Newsom is releasing theme park guidelines tonight, but he has been saying that for the past 3 months, so I am not holding my breath. The rumored guidelines include:

- Advance ticket sales required

- 25% capacity

- Face coverings required

- Admission limited to people living within a certain distance of the park

Almost two weeks later and we know this was all bull.  Apparently he's going to be "speaking with theme parks" sometime this week, but I'm not expecting anything special.

While it sucks we can't ride any rides, I am still very glad to see Knott's putting on these food events and selling out. I am sure they are pulling in quite a bit of money. I anticipate they will do a Holiday/Christmas event too, and they will probably just keep doing these until they can fully open. Good for them, it's genius.

^ I'm curious if for the Christmas event, whatever it may be, they attempt some type of performance for guests.  I know Snoopy On Ice is a tall order with the pandemic but a Christmas event without some kind of storytelling medium just seems empty.

Has anyone heard anything more about the new Knott’s Beary Tales Ride? Is it even opening this year?

image.jpeg.2fe00e3062500fe046ff23d3d556f83c.jpeg

I'm pretty sure I read that the ride will be ready when the park opens.  So it will open this year as long as the park opens.

Should be released tomorrow, but might exclude marger parks...
