Better than Disney as crowds are not that large. Awesome rides and a good family environment. Decent amount of rides for young children

I cannot believe i said that. I love disneyland and it has spectacular aspects but we went to knotts for the first time in a long time and were amazed. No, it is not disneyland, the theming is haphazzard, maintenance is mediocre and resources are thin but they offer more fun per dollar than disney maybe ever will, or can.... More

Knott's Berry Farm is amazing. The line to get tickets was short and the prices were affordable. My best friend and I went on most of the rides. I haven't been there in over 20 years. The lines were pretty short and the staff was very helpful. If you are needing a wheel chair or stroller, they do have availability.... More

I have been to Knotts Berry Farm every time I have come to the USA, I personally reckon it is slightly better than Disneyland, just on the basis of my being an Adult. The ride are designed for the Older Children and the Adults. But this trip I had my Adult Children and my Grand Children. They all had a... More

Four Generation visit a great success at this smaller but full-of-fun park. Went during the week and had no lines for any rides, all the shows were still on, and the Old West theme was a big hit with the first-timers as well as those who came 50 years ago. Be sure to take advantage of the informal presentations at... More

During our family vacation to California in February, we went to Knott's Berry Farm on a Wednesday. It was excellent. Very little wait to get on the rides. So many rides. We went to Disneyland the next day and in my opinion, Knotts Berry Farm is SO much better.

My youngest is a HUGE Snoopy fan, so we knew we needed to make Knott's Berry Farm a stop on our So. Cal trip. He was not disappointed! He got to meet and hug Snoopy, as well as some of the other Peanuts characters. My 4 year olds loved all the Camp Snoopy rides, plus there were plenty of other... More

Not sure what was going on during our visit but several rides had operational issues (this was shortly after the tower incident) and atmosphere-wise, something was missing. They were still running the Christmas themes Knott's Merry Farm program - but after 2 days at Disney, and 2 days at Great Wolf Lodge - you just "could not feel the magic"... More

Really great Theme Park for Families and Thrill Seekers. If you don't want to pay the prices for Disney and still want a great experience this is the Park to go to. For Thrill Seekers: Ghost Rider, Xcelerator, and Supreme Scream. For families there are a lot of family friendly attractions. The food and drinks here are great, make sure... More
