Planning Your Trip to Knott's Berry Farm
Buy tickets online in advance for considerable discounts and to avoid long queues at the ticket counter.
Beat the Crowd
If you don’t mind shorter opening hours, mid-week is the best time to enjoy the park’s rides without much queuing. There are also special days when the park stays open late so that you can enjoy the most popular rides without the crowds, which is an hour or two before closing time.
Ditch the Queues
Get a Fast Lane wristband if you’re interested in the park’s bigger and extreme rides. You can access shortcuts to rides without queuing and reunite with the rest of the group after the ride, within minutes. Plus, if you have a small child who can’t accompany you on a ride, the wristband will let you pass the line while your partner waits with your child to take the ride when you’re finished, all without any queuing.
