My very favorite parts of Knott’s Berry Farm are the trains. They have three of them! On the “Calico Mine Ride” you get to go into a mine and see them looking for gold.
And there’s a train in Camp Snoopy for the little kids (my little sister liked this one). I really wanted to ride the Huff and Puff but I was 2 inches too tall. This train has “Pumper Cars” – that’s where you get to push and pull a handle to make yourself go down the train track.
Knott’s Berry Farm has some good roller coasters. My little sister liked the toddler roller coaster called “Timberline Twister.” She also picked a ride everybody in the family liked a lot, called the “Timber Mountain Log Ride.” I’m used to going on “Splash Mountain” in Disneyland with my mom. This ride was kind of like it. We sailed down the water chutes and it had an old west theme all around to look at along the way. The drop at the end was not as big as Splash Mountain, which was good for my little sister.
My parents said that Knott’s Berry Farm is worth going to because it costs lots less than Disneyland. And if you get your tickets online before you go you can save even more money. Our whole family had lots of fun here.

Knott’s Berry Farm is considered the world’s first theme park. In 1940, while still a real berry farm, Walter Knott built a themed Ghost Town to entertain diners waiting for tables at his wife’s fried chicken restaurant.
Knott’s Berry Farm is less than ten minutes from Disneyland, and is a great “best bang for your buck” park for entertainment every member of the family can enjoy. Plan to stretch your vacation budget even further by staying in an Anaheim timeshare rental, which can start as low as $86/night.
