We had Disneyland passes for almost 10 years. Some of our best memories were made there. With the price increases over the years and the change in the handicap procedure, we finally had to take a stand and discontinue our wonderful family days at Disneyland.
With Disneyland off the table, we wanted to try some of our other local amusement parks. So at the end of 2016, we purchased our Knott’s Berry Farm season passes and we were just able to use them this past weekend. Knott’s season passes vary with your needs, some of which come with admission to Knott’s Soak City.
Parking was amazing! There was a slight suck when we had to walk up and down a steep hill pushing strollers but a little exercise never hurt anyone. When we entered the park, there was Franklin and Charlie Brown with only a few people in line for pictures. My children were thrilled! Then we made our way to Camp Snoopy which was literally right by the front entrance. I love this fact because parents with little ones don’t have to trek across the park to get their fun started.
The rides in Camp Snoopy were themed and my children loved the fact that it was a land for them. The lines were not short but not crazy long either. It was actually quiet large and there was plenty of space for you to picnic, watch your children on the rides or just take a little break. There was also lots of bathrooms throughout Camp Snoopy which is fantastic!!
Another area in Camp Snoopy had props relating to the Peanuts characters and 3 characters waiting to take pictures with all the guests of the park. The line was so short!! Snoopy showed my children his dog house and Woodstock showed my son how to flap his wings. Interactions like that are priceless. They were not trying to rush through the line and really took time to connect to my children.
We knew our children were not going to be able to ride much of anything else because of their height but we strolled around the park and really enjoyed it. There is a ton to look at, little shows to stop and watch and lots of delicious food options. Knott’s Berry Farm feels like a throwback amusement park and I love it!
I purchased a refillable cup that we can use through the year for free refills. 30$ kinda seemed high but if you do the math and use it often, it is worth it, especially since you can refill it at different places throughout the park. You just have to remember to bring it with you each time you come to the park. We also purchased a cup of strawberries and candy both of which were very well priced for an amusement park.
There was still a ton that we did not get to see or do and I am looking forward to a time that just my husband and I can have a day there to ride all the rollercoasters. For only 91$ a pass, I think it was completely worth it and know that we will get a lot of use out of it!
