While massive storms were blanketing half our country in snow this past week, Southern California was among the geographic areas excluded.
Snowflakes were not landing on our noses or eyelashes.
Unless, of course, you were among the audiences at Knott’s Berry Farm’s newest ice show, “Merry Christmas, Snoopy,” wherein, right from the start, snow falls from above.
It’s all part of Knott’s Merry Farm, an annual seasonal celebration that provides park visitors with a host of holiday entertainment including: classic Christmas plays in the Bird Cage Theatre, traditional Calico Carolers who stroll the streets spreading good cheer, the nightly Christmas tree lighting, featuring a cast of toy soldiers, dancing snowmen and Snoopy, artisans busy at work in the Christmas Crafts Village, and much, much more!
If it’s a little Christmas you need–or a lot–Knott’s Berry Farm is your perfect destination.
To add to the celebration, this historic theme park, which first opened in 1920, pays tribute to military, fire and police personnel with free admission.
During its 25th annual Military Tribute, which continues through January 4, 2015, all U.S. veterans, either retired or active, (and one guest) are admitted free.
As well, during Fire and Police Recognition Days, which continues through January 31, 2015, all active fire and police personnel (and one guest) are admitted free. (These two special promotions also allow additional tickets to be purchased at discounted rates.)
With everyone having so much fun, it’s a welcome reminder that this is the season to be jolly…
And that Knott’s Berry Farm will certainly be on Santa’s “nice” list, once again this year!
Bigfoot Rapids is a thrilling river raft ride enjoyed by patrons at Knott’s Berry Farm all year long.
November’s sunny skies make riding Bigfoot Rapids all that more enjoyable. There’s laughter in the air, as fast-moving river rafts traverse the winding waterway that passes through a picture-perfect landscape filled with indigenous trees, shrubs and wild flowers. However, even if the temperatures do drop, after wet patrons get off the ride (for a nominal fee), they can always opt to take advantage of the giant-sized human dryer.
Knott’s Merry Farm spreads the joy of the season.

No sugar plums, but lots of other delectable delights can be found at Santa’s Christmas Cabin at Knott’s Berry Farm.
Santa’s in residence at the Christmas Cabin at Knotts, welcoming visitors, young and old. Take a photo with him, or pose for your own picture in front of the wintry, festive décor. There’s even a photo machine that lets you take a holiday snapshot with your loved ones (for free!) and send it to yourself via e-mail.
If you’re craving something sweet, you’re in for a treat. Homemade cookies, eggnog, hot chocolate, and more, can easily satisfy your sweet tooth. There’s even a giant chocolate fountain used to make fresh s’mores on a stick!
Knott’s Berry Farm takes aim to keep the Old West alive.
Calico Ghost Town keeps the Old West alive and interesting, with a variety of rides, attractions and live entertainment. There aren’t many places where you can still take a ride on an authentic stagecoach. But you can at Knotts! It’s a unique experience that’s suitable for folks of all ages. Another unusual journey awaits you aboard the Calico Mine Ride. Having recently undergone a complete refurbishment, the attraction now includes a variety of innovative animatronic figures, state-of-the art lighting and audio, plus newly added special effects, providing riders with an overall remarkable adventure.
Voyage to the Iron Reef, a new interactive ride at Knott’s Berry Farm, is set to open in Spring 2015.
Looking into the future, “Voyage to the Iron Reef” will be a major new attraction at Knotts, set to open in Spring 2015. This 4-D interactive ride will be located where Laser Tag used to be (formerly the site of the dinosaur ride).

It promises to be a four-minute adventure like no other.
