Today we bring news from Knotts Berry Farm. As the Christmas elements are removed from the park, maintenance and plans for the upcoming year move in. To start the year off, Knott’s has again partnered with the Susan G. Komen Foundation to raise money and awareness for Breast Cancer awareness by offering special tickets and merchandise. Next up we’ll stroll the park to check up on how Knott’s is taking advantage of the “off-season”. The Timber Mountain Log Ride is down for an annual maintenance program while La Revelucion, in Fiesta Village, is still down months later. Thankfully Ghost Town is in wonderful shape after the holidays and Bigfoot Rapids is back up and running, despite the cooler weather. We also take a look at the Fool’s Gold Stunt Show in Ghost Town’s Wagon Camp Theatre and hope for better things to come. Who’s ready for a trip to the farm?
Partnership with Susan G. Komen Foundation
Once again, Knotts Berry Farm has joined forces with the Susan G. Komen Foundation to raise awareness and research money for the fight against breast cancer. January 5 through March 27, guests can purchase a Pink Ticket ($39 adults, $35 Jr./Sr. ages 3-11, 62+), online only at knotts.com. A portion of the ticket and merchandise proceeds will benefit Susan G. Komen Orange County
The three-month promotion is a wonderful way to go and enjoy the park while supporting a great cause. Throughout the park there are pink bursts of color, subtle hints at the promotion and a reminder of the need to continue fighting breast cancer.
Awash in tones of pink, the Calico Mine Ride is a dazzling site to behold once evening falls on the farm.
What if you were smart enough to buy a season pass to Knott’s but still want to help? Easy. You can visit several locations in the park and pick up your own pink T-shirt, button, or water bottle.
The rest of the park looks clean and spiffed up, ready for a new year of thrills and fun. As we stroll through Ghost Town we see that the small details are being kept up.
Ghost Town Cemetery
One bit of charm that has ceased, for now, is the beating heart. Normally, when guests visited the Ghost Town Cemetery, they could get a bit of good luck by stepping on a special grave.
Much like the beloved Sad-Eyed-Joe character in Ghost Town, this little touch is what builds the tapestry of charm in Ghost Town. The irony of complaining that a dead man’s heart is not beating is not entirely lost on us. That being said, we hope that gets fixed soon.
Timber Mountain Log Ride
The Timber Mountain Log Ride is currently under refurbishment. The refurb is set to last until the end of the month. The work is mainly focused on annual maintenance on the lift hills and a few other details.
Voyage to the Iron Reef
We would be remiss if we did not share the latest pics from Voyage to the Iron Reef. Truth be told there still isn’t really much to see at this point.
At 5pm on a weekday, the charming stunt show that is at the center of Ghost Town still pulls in a respectable crowd. Have you taken the time to see this show?
La Revalucion in Fiesta Village is still down for an extended refurbishment.
With that we close our photo update from Knotts Berry Farm. Check back next week as we visit another amazing destination in Southern California
