Knott's Berry Farm, Buena Park

Knott's Berry Farm is definitely less well-known than other amusement parks in the Los Angeles area but its tag line is "America's First Theme Park" and it is definitely well-worth a visit. For one, it is considerably cheaper for kids (just $19.99 for kids 11 and under). It has a good mix of family rides and thrill rides plus characters from the Peanuts comic strip.



Rides at Knott's Berry FarmThere are seven roller coasters ranging from the kid-friendly Timberline Twister in the Camp Snoopy area to the Silver Bullet, a suspended roller coaster offering aggressive thrills. There are also other thrill rides similar to those you might find at the State Fair and some water rides where you are sure to get wet. There are also shows, souvenir shops and restaurants to keep you busy. Knott's Berry Farm now also has three "Soak City" water parks in California but admission to these parks is separate from the main amusement park.

Ordered newest to oldest.

Yeah, what I hate about theme parks are the often interminable waits... Best time out I ever had in one was a somewhat rainy (scattered drops, really) spring day in Kansas City's World of Fun: No lines! Believe me, sitting in the front wagon on a fast rollercoaster 5x in a row is great :-)

We live by Knott's, and we can safely say that if you ever find yourself stuck in a 2-hour line at Disneyland, leave. Go up the freeway to Knott's where the lines are shorter.

I'm a wuss when it comes to roller coasters, so I tend to stick to riding down hills with cardboard sleds for cheap entertainment.
