I went to KBF (Knott's Berry Farm) yesterday as a award for being in my school choir. Let me tell you this: What shocked me was HOW crowded the park was. It took two and a half hours to ride Silver Bullet (probably because they were running only ONE train) and all the eateries were packed.
I think it was all the school's being there because, by 6, the park was EMPTY!
But of course we had to leave at 7, so I could only ride Ghostrider once.
Now for the comparison part:
You know I'm going to say Disneyland is better, but Knott's has good points too - Knott's Chicken Dinner restaurant and a few select rides. I, after hearing what you guys said about the Boardwalk on MC, I really did check it out, and your right - it's ugly.
The great thing about Disneyland is that is has the Hub, which really distinguishes itself from Knotts, sets all of its "lands" apart - I adore that aspect of Disneyland.
Knott's in itself is a mix-match of different themes - Western old town, Boardwalk, Main Street (??) and Camp Snoopy.
Ghost town and Camp Snoopy are under their own areas - but the Boardwalk really has no logo or anything.
But the thing that shocked me was that I actually saw DISNEY merchandise on their shelves (at the Victoria store outside). It was really funny.
But Knott's was fun, just DL is a lot better in many aspects.
DL is amazing to look for while on the freeway, I saw for a few glances the ToT, Matterhorn, MaliBOOMer, and one of the hotels.
It was fun - the best part of the trip!
Any ideas on what you guys think of Knott's and Disneyland (when you compare)?
