The Knott's Berry Farm (KBF) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

ICU beds are at capacity in Orange County, LA County isn't far behind.  Wear your damn masks, people

 

Also, stop coming to Vegas.  We may technically be open but there's nothing to do but gamble and ride the stupid ferris wheel.  Shows are all closed and that includes the ones that just reopened with limited seating a month ago.  Spiegelworld (Absinthe, Atomic Saloon, etc) just fired nearly everyone on Monday and they're packing up to move to Australia.  Things are rough.

Toughest mask mandates in the country for months and months. When will masks start working? 

Here's some random night shots from Taste of Merry Farm.   Camp Snoopy looked the best at night, imo.  I guess I like the lights up the trees thing the best.      The Bear-Y Tales

^ that's a huge shame re: Spiegelworld. . I absolutely *adored* "Absinthe"

I hope the performers are able to land somewhere great once things start to get a bit back to normal in 2021

Not to derail this thread any further, but a huge part of the problem is there not anything actually tough about them. They exist, and some businesses (like Knotts when they were open for all their food festivals) do great at enforcement, many others don’t.

The Southern California region on its own has a population that is larger than all but the state of Texas.  The odds of being able to contain a virus in the region are zero given that millions of those people work “essential” jobs and there are probably another million who still believe it’s a hoax. 

Masks help and we respect all park rules here. End of story. 
 

That being said, it is absolutely fair to criticize how our Governor has put all businesses at a huge disadvantage by rewriting the guidelines a few times with no prior input.  Changing from tiers, to colors, and now to a regional system without notice makes it almost impossible for any park to invest in trying to create new experiences like Knotts had done with the “taste” events.

Bummer that they had to cancel the rest of Taste of Merry Farm. I was looking forward to visiting. I am glad Knott's was able to squeeze out some revenue and make the most of their situation this year, though. Many other parks can't say the same.

Here's to 2021. Maybe. Who even knows.

Considering that the OC Sheriff has publicly stated multiple times that he will not be directing his department to enforce any COVID related regulations, and the head of the OC Health Department refused to issue a mask mandate until being superseded by the state, I'm gonna go ahead and call BS on that idea that they're even close to the toughest.

If I recall correctly, the OC Board of Education wanted all the students to return to school as normal.  Even months and months into the pandemic, when it was pretty clear it wasn't really a safe option.  Lots in OC government do not exactly have a great track record here.

Knott's and Disney do better about enforcement, as it's private property and they actually (well, Knott's more than Disney) enforce the rules.  Go to a mall down the street and you'd likely see a fair share with improperly worn (below nose) or maskless.

We don’t need to beat a dead horse on the COVID situation in CA.

let’s give props to Knotts for staying open for shopping for the vendors and making some of the popular food items available to go!

All of the non-California parks will probably be able to open by their normal opening days anyway, though they've already stated that they might open a bunch of parks late just for fun so I guess who knows?

This is a great move. In essence, it makes your pass valid for one year after their re-opening date. And yeah, this extension is likely exclusive to Knott’s, since they are CF’s only year-round park and will probably stay closed the longest.

CF's seasonal parks will likely follow suit if their respective states don't allow them to reopen by the time they typically open for the season.

Shut down the week of Boysenberry Festival last year, so I'm glad to finally get back to it!  $45 seems a little steep compared to the prices we've seen before ($35 for Halloween was a great deal, considering how much there was to see).   But hey... they gotta find a way to make some money.
