On The Boardwalk – at Knott’s Berry FarmBy
Our dad blogger Mike, had the opportunity to check out the new Knott’s Berry Farm Boardwalk and shares all about it!
It’s now open! Knott’s Berry Farm’s all new Boardwalk addition, featuring the Surfside Glider, Paradise Scrambler and the new roller coaster, the Coast Rider. If you haven’t been to Knott’s Berry Farm, you are in for a treat. Knott’s Berry Farm Theme Park is just the place to go for family fun! More than 165 rides, shows, attractions, restaurants and shops in five themed areas shape the Knott’s experience.
These new additions to Knott’s are specifically family friendly attractions. The roller coaster is similar to Goofy’s Sky School or the Technic coaster at Legoland, but much smoother than either of those. The Pacific Scrambler and Surfside Glider allow up to three riders to sit together, which allows the family to enjoy the experience together.
The Timber Mountain Log Ride has come out from his million dollar makeover. It now features brand new animated people and animals. The trough also got a new coat of green paint! The makeover has really revitalized this class ride. Did you know that this is the first themed log ride ever built?
The new elements add some extra fun and excitement to this classic ride. “The Timber Mountain Log Ride not only embodies the spirit of Knott’s Berry Farm, but it also set the bar for all themed attractions that came after,” says Raffi Kaprelyan, Knott’s general manager who worked for Bud Hurlbut from 1979-1983. “Bud Hurlbut made numerous contributions to Knott’s Berry Farm, but I think that the Timber Mountain Log Ride remains his crowning achievement.”
Knott’s is a great place for young families. In addition to Camp Snoopy’s rides, all ages can experience the 1896 Dentzel Carousel, classic Timber Mountain Log Ride, Calico Mine Ride, Ghost Town and Calico Railroad and authentic Butterfield Stagecoach.
Knott’s opens daily at 10 AM. Admission is $59.99 for adults, kids ages 3-11 and Seniors $30.99 and parking is only $15
