Knott’s Berry Farm, California’s Best Theme Park and Amusement Park, contains many exciting and adventurous rides inside the park. There are two different parks there which are the Knott’s Berry Farm amusement park and Knott’s Soak City, a water park. Many of the rides at the park are high thrill rides but there are also rides for all ages. There are many places to eat inside the park such as Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant. Also located in the park are many shows for entertainment and spots to take funny pictures by photographers working inside the amusement park.

Knott’s Berry Farm is mainly known for their rides. Some of the most popular thrill rides include Ghost Rider, Silver Bullet, Supreme Scream, Xcelerator, and Hangtime. These rides are thrill rides for people who enjoy getting the feeling of butterflies in their stomach while riding on the ride. Ghost Rider is a wooden roller coaster ride that reaches 118 feet high. It’s one of the largest attractions at Knott’s and reaches up to the speed of 58 miles per hour. Silver Bullet is a ride that flips the riders upside down with their feet dangling in the air. Throughout the ride, riders will experience many loops and turns that may make them dizzy but it’s all worth it. With a record-breaking 252 feet in midair, Supreme Scream brings visitors up to the top of the tower and blasts them straight down in three seconds at 50 miles per hour. Xcelerator starts at 0 miles per hour in the beginning but right when it starts, it blasts to 82 mph in about 2 seconds. This roller coaster brings people up 205 feet and then down at a 90-degree angle. The newest ride, Hangtime, is the only dive roller coaster in California. The ride brings riders up 150 feet and drops them down at a steep vertical drop, the steepest in California, 96 degrees.

Many younger kids are also brought to Knott’s because there older siblings enjoy going. In Knott’s, there is a kid area called Camp Snoopy so toddlers can enjoy their day at the amusement park too. In this area of the park, it is a Snoopy themed area for fun where they can meet Snoopy and stay entertained. Many of the rides in this area are just like the thrill rides but are brought down a level. Some of the rides include flying objects, mini roller coasters, and trains. These rides are extremely fun for kids and are bearable to ride without getting sick.

If visitors to the park are looking for rides in between those levels of thrill, there are also family rides that are enjoyable to many people. These rides include many slow train rides and horse rides, water rides, spinny rides, and interactive rides. Some of these rides include the Calico River Rapids, Pacific Scrambler, Voyage to the Iron Reef, Timber Mountain Log Ride, Bumper Cars, and the Sky Cabin. The Calico River Rapids is a rapid ride that will get people on the ride wet. Pacific Scrambler is another ride that travels back and forth twisting people on the ride around. Iron Reef is a game where people shoot fish and other sea animals trying to get as many points as they can. The Log Ride brings riders on a trip through scenes of miners and goes through big drops too. Bumper Cars are like the normal bumper cars where visitors bump into each other while they are driving. The Sky Cabin is a rotating cabin that travels up 180 feet into the air for a great view of the park and other parts of Los Angeles. All of these family rides are exciting for people of all ages.
