Knott's Berry Farm Celebrates 4th of July with Fireworks, Free Kids' Lunch and a Return Trip on the House

BUENA PARK, Calif.-- Knott's Berry Farm, America's first themed amusement park, will be the place to celebrate our nation's freedom with family fun and fantastic offers. On Wednesday, July 4th with every child's paid admission, kids ages 3-11 will get a free "Snoopy's Doggie Bag," filled with a Hoffy hot dog, a bag of Lay's potato chips, a Pepsi soft drink and yummy Knott's Berry Farm Premium shortbread cookies. Adults visiting on the 4th can still take advantage of the Knott's pay once, visit twice promotion, or as they call it on the farm, P1V2. With every full paid adult admission of $48.95, you can return for a second visit free through December 31, 2007.

Kids and adults alike will enjoy Knott's newest attraction, Sierra Sidewinder. Now the wildest thing in Camp Snoopy, Sierra Sidewinder is a ride like no other taking its passengers over 1,411 feet of track at a dizzying speed of 37 miles per hour, all while rotating on its axis. Though this whirlwind only lasts a little over a minute, it includes a drop of 39 feet, turning riders into human twisters!

Across the street at Independence Hall, Knott's Berry Farm will take a look back at our nation's history with special appearances by Benjamin Franklin, Patrick Henry, and John Adams. Tour guides dressed in colonial attire will be available to guide guests to the replica of the Liberty Bell, Hall of Flags and the Independence Hall Museum which includes exhibits on Betsy Ross, George Washington and the British Military. The Independence Hall Declaration Chambers will also be open with ongoing performances of the multi-media presentation "A Storm in Philadelphia" an account of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. All the activities scheduled for the 4th of July at Independence Hall are free to the public. Independence Hall is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with activities for the celebration scheduled from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

To cap off your fourth, the sky above Knott's will be illuminated with pyrotechnics during a patriotic fireworks presentation starting at 9:45 p.m.
