Knott's Berry Farm

Knott’s Berry Farm (Buena Park, California)

The name is a little strange but the experience is all thrill. Back in the 1920s when the place actually was a berry farm, the creative juices started flowing (yes, it’s an awful pun – we know) and the concept for what stands on the land there today was born.

Knott’s Berry Farm has one of the world’s scariest log flume rides (Timber Mountain) and 10 world-class coasters. Once you’ve gotten your coaster on with the Silver Bullet (and we do mean AFTER), don’t miss out on the chance to sample their world-famous fried chicken.
