AAA Editor Notes
Knott's Berry Farm Theme Park, 8039 Beach Blvd., re-creates the atmosphere of the Old West and encompasses four theme areas on 160 acres. Old West Ghost Town is an 1880s boom town with cowboys, gun fights, stagecoaches and panning for gold, plus three western-style roller coasters: GhostRider, a 118-foot-high wooden coaster; Silver Bullet, a suspended coaster with corkscrews, spirals and a 109-foot drop; and Pony Express, a coaster with seats shaped like horses.
Thrill rides on the Boardwalk include Voyage to the Iron Reef (a 4-D interactive ride) and Xcelerator, which rises and falls 20 stories straight up and straight down. Camp Snoopy features rides especially for the younger crowd, including Linus Launcher and Charlie Brown's Kite Flyer. Major entertainers perform in the Charles M. Schulz Theatre.
Food is available.
