    May 14, 2010: Knott’s Berry Farm, Then and Now

    As a follow-up to my Disneyland Then and Now series, I brought some historic Knott’s Berry Farm photos to Knott’s recently to take matching photos of the same locations today.


    Please discuss it here.

    Werner, another great Then and Now article. Because of your recent glances at Knott's Berry Farm, it's caused me to resurrect memories from back in the day. In fact, I am thinking of taking one of my vacation days to Disneyland in July and bringing the family to Knotts Berry Farm to ride the world's greatest log ride!

    Although I'm not a fan of the thrill rides that now have such a prominent role at Knott's, there's still much about Knott's that I really like.

    I think anyone looking at those photos can see that, for the most part, the changes made to Knott's have been for the worse.

    The before-&-after shot of the El Camino Real underpass alone speaks volumes about the wrong direction the park has taken. I shudder every time I see it.

    But even worse is what they've done to the former Reflection Lake area (not shown in these photos), where a wonderful, serene setting was destroyed and replaced by yet another monster coaster.

    The Knott's I knew now looks like somebody dropped Six Flags Magic Mountain on top of it - and flattened everything but Ghost Town.
