Everything here is at quite a relaxed place compared to Disneyland, Universal etc... LOVED the funnel cake! Customer service at the food outlets inside isn't that great and is very slow. Hardly any food staff cracked a smile. Snoopy's HQ across the road is AMAZING......More

Great place to go with your friends, as a couple or family. There’s something to do for all ages or just people watch. They have several good and fast roller coasters and other rides also. The price is a whole lot cheaper than Disneyland especially...More

Our kids, 6 and 3 at the time, had a wonderful time! This park is smaller and has less traffic in comparison to Disneyland so it was much easier and quicker to get in. The lines to the rides were much shorter, even the lines...More

Perfect park for teens and tweens. Date night? Also great for that. We’ve got passes and we got back a lot. Never too crowded, the shows are good, holidays are pretty there. They don’t quite have the “magic” that Disney has, but it’s a much...More

Disney and Santa Monica. Is it stupid to not have a car?

Response fromBrig1977|
I would definitely recommend a car. The distance between Hollywood and Knott's/Disney isnt close at all and you will spend so much time hopping from bus to train or vice versa. Sounds like a big hassle. You also don't want to be tied to a bus or train schedule. Good Luck!

Has anyone went lately? How is it? Are the lines long to get a table? Is it expensive? Does the food still taste as good as 15 years ago or has it changed? thanks in advance

We would like to have a day at Knott's Berry Farm when we visit in September. Is it woth buying tickets online before we come or is it the same price at the gate? Thanks, Sambom.

In Sept. the park hours on weekdays are pretty short so the half day discount would not be a good deal if available.
