The opinions in this article are my own. I do not work for, or with, any brand mentioned in this article, nor do I have any official relationship with them. I have a relationship with GigaSavvy, for whom I create original editorial content. I was provided access to special events to facilitate this post which makes me totally happy because I love to share about fun things to do in Southern California.
Summer’s in full swing and we have a long list of fun planned!
At the top of the list is Knott’s Berry Farm. I’ve been going since I was little and many of the rides are original to then with upgrades throughout the years and that was totally okay with me. I loved them all! But I have to say that I’m pretty excited to be visiting again this summer because they some NEW attractions and I can’t wait to experience them!
The Calico Min Co. Ride has been a family favorite since I can remember!
It was originally opened November 22, 1960 and cost over 1 million dollars to build back then! I’ve heard that there are some really awesome new additions to the ride including a number of human figures and animals! There are now 46 humans, plus dozens of historically accurate animals; bats, a dog, a mule, vultures, and fish!
There are 3 levels of fun that you can travel on when you are riding in one of six 19th century-themed steam locomotives! I’ll be back to share more once I get to experience it myself!
Pig Pen’s Mud Buggies
My little one is going to LOVE this one! She will be able to climb aboard her very own all-terrain vehicle for an adventurous ride around the High Sierras! The six four-seater ATV’s will spin, bounce, and bump, while Pig Pen looks on.
Charlie Brown’s Kite Flyer
“Fly a Kite” with Charlie Brown looks like it’s going to be awesome! Campers soar above the land’s winding paths and babbling brooks while having to watch out for the kite-eating tree! As the tree rises, good ol’ Charlie Brown is revealed upside down and all tied up in kite string! So fun!
The little one gets to lay on Linus’ blanket and enter a classic Peanut’s moment as Snoopy grabs the blanket and launches guests up to 10 feet in the air. She will get to enjoy a Woodstock’s-eye view of Huff ‘n Puff, The Grizzly Creek Lodge, and all of Camp Snoopy below!
I’ll be back soon with more about Knott’s Berry Farm Summer fun!
Till then… what ride are you most excited for?
