We had a great day visiting this park. It was our favourite of all the parks we visited in SoCal on a recent vacation. Admission is very reasonable. We paid extra for the "Fast Lane", which is nice if it fits your budget, but not 100% necessary. It was a bit confusing figuring out how to use these passes (just... More

When we arrived we found no one there, just a few of us for the majority of the day, which is great for the kids getting on the coasters, but for older visitors who can't take the gut-wrenching coasters, there is little else to do. Most of the side streets are filled with shops that are less than inviting, seedy... More

The park is really nice and has a lot to offer. We went in August 2014, during the week and did not wait for any attraction. The staff is really nice and very helpful. We had a very nice lunch (although pricey) in the park. The place needs a major facelift although clean and well kept for being aged. There... More

Enjoyed a very full on day here. It was certainly busy but we were not hussle and bussled like Disney land. We brought front of line passes which I totally recommend. Saved a lot of time standing in the sun. The xcelerator roller coaster is simply awesome. 0 to 82mph in 2 seconds. You have to experience it. We even... More

Budget friendly and great for families with young children. I was happy with the kid check its just a bracelet with your phone number that your child wears but it gives you a little extra peace of mind. All staff was very friendly.

My family was visiting from out of state and thought we would take advantage of the reduced-price admission after 4 p.m. Unfortunately, this did not also apply to parking ($15), located a bit of a distance from the park. Once inside the park we were impressed by the vast array of rides and cleanliness of the park. Finding the entrance... More

We were enjoying a lengthy stay at the Disney Grand Californian resort. We had 5 days in Disney but wanted to try something different. We decided to give Knott's Berry a try. Our kids had a BLAST! They absolutely loved the thrill rides and I loved watching them ride them over and over again. The park was quiet that day... More

The park seemed dirty, and getting on rides was very unorganized. It made lines a lot longer than needed to be. We were very disappointed, after not visiting for many years and probably will not return on our next visit to California.
