Calling all cowboys, surfers and thrill seekers! Knott's Berry Farm has a summer filled with fun for everyone. Experience the immersive western-adventure of Ghost Town Alive, keep cool with water rides and brave gravity-defying coasters.
Ghost Town Alive
Grab your boots and mosey on over for Ghost Town Alive! Guests to the park become the stars of the show in a western-themed interactive storyline. As honorary citizens of Calico, park guests join in the immersive experience with activities, scavenger hunts and character interactions. It’s going to be another banner year in the town of Calico with the arrival of new characters and an expanded setting. The fun wraps up with a nightly Hoe-Down. Ghost Town Alive’s adventures in the Old West is offered select days through September 2nd.
If splashing, sunbathing and super sliding are on the agenda, head to Knott's Soak City. The separate ticket theme park features acres of slides, a lazy river, wave pool and family-friendly kid area. Fuel your fun at Portside Pizza or Longboard’s Grill, before heading to the Beach House where the giant bucket dumps 500 gallons of water on surfers down below. For your own private oasis, cabanas are available to rent. Soak City is open select days through mid-September.
Calico River Rapids
Looking to cool off this summer at Knott’s? You’ll want to test the waters at Calico River Rapids. Formerly Bigfoot Rapids, the raft ride has reopened with new animatronics, themed show scenes, story overlay, and water effects. Riders test their fate on the white water rapids, unsure of which way the waves will splash and who may be lurking in the caves. A fan favorite includes water explosives where park guests on the sidelines can blast riders with water.
Knott’s Summer Nights
Daytime at Knott’s is filled with adventure. But Knott’s Summer Nights are here to ensure that the fun doesn’t stop after the sun goes down. New to Knott’s this year is the summer celebration on the boardwalk. No RSVP is needed to this party filled with live music on the Calico Stage and a DJ spinning around Charleston Circle Fountain. Snack on themed food offerings, play family-friendly games and experience interactive experiences.
Hang ten on HangTime and race along with the Pony Express. It’s not just the thrill rides that’ll have you cheering this summer. Enjoy the special summer entertainment that celebrates the surf culture in SoCal and also the Old West with comedic bluegrass country fun.
