~Toadally~ Terrific Tips for Knott’s Berry Farm With Kids

by Mommy Frog on October 2, 2019 Los Angeles

Southern California is known for its theme parks: Disneyland Resort, Six Flags Magic Mountain and Universal Studios Hollywood, along with smaller gems such as Knott’s Berry Farm.   Situated in Buena Park, Calif., Knott’s has been around longer than any of the big parks mentioned above! What started as a humble berry farm has toadally grown into a playground for children and adults alike. Upon entering, it may seem like there’s nothing but “big kid” rides, but that’s not the case. In fact, the youngest froglets will discover small worlds made just for them. Here’s how to get the most out of your visit to Knott's Berry Farm with kids!

Our Top Tips for Knott's Berry Farm with Kids

1. Introduce the family to the Peanuts

Camp Snoopy - Tips for Visiting Knott's Berry Farm with Kids

Before coming to the park, introduce your little froglets to Charlie Brown, Lucy, Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang. They play a prominent part in the park and the kids will get a kick out of seeing familiar characters come to life.

2. Bunker down at Camp Snoopy

If your Frog Family has kids under age 8, you’ll want to spend a lot of time in Camp Snoopy. This little land is perfect for those who are just starting to explore and grow. From kid-sized trucks and trains to “thrill” rides and interactive exhibits, this is the place to be. There are pretty waterfalls and trees shading the paths throughout the day. If you’re looking for a little extra cooling down, stop by the Grizzly Creek Lodge for a quick bite.

For Frog Moms and Dads who enjoy a little education on vacation, Ghost Town is the perfect place to visit. Explore what life was like in the Wild West: Chat with real craftsmen, walk through a one-room schoolhouse and engage in the antics of the Wild West Stunt Show. (OK, that last one isn’t exactly educational, but the froglets will get a kick out of it!) The Calico Mine Ride and Timber Mountain Log Ride provide a unique perspective on the Gold Rush era as well.

4. Download the app

Before heading into the park, download the Knott’s Berry Farm app on your smartphone. You’ll be able to navigate showtimes, dining options and ride wait times without having to trek all over the grounds. There’s even a Car Finder feature for the end of the day!

5. Check for special events

Boysenberry Pie - Knott's Berry Farm with Kids

Knott’s Berry Farm celebrates the seasons in fun and unique ways. Springtime means the return of the popular Boysenberry Festival, inviting hungry Frog Families to taste all kinds of treats. Summer brings out live music, lawn games and fun shows for all ages. Camp Spooky is the signature Fall event, while Knott’s Merry Farm puts everyone in a festive mood for the holidays. Keep an eye out for discounts, seasonal treats, fun shows and other themed activities.

Knott’s Berry Farm is all about family fun. It’s smaller than the bigger parks in Southern California, meaning it is actually possible to cover many popular rides and shows in one day. If you’re looking for somewhere slower-paced than Disneyland, but more tadpole-tailored than Six Flags, Knott’s is the place to be!
