Summertime fun is never complete without a visit to Knott’s Berry Farm. From the rides to the food… there is so much to do that you can’t possibly do it all in one day.

 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.

So excited to see all that is awesome

Summertime means the start of my series of family fun in and around So Cal.

We are just about to take off on some travel for our upcoming vacation and fun posts, but first we had to make a visit to to Knott’s Berry Farm to see all the new #KnottsSummer fun and to help Camp Snoopy Celebrate 30 years! Some of the classic rides were replaced with new ones and the whole place got some awesome updates!

Celebrating 30 years of Camp Snoopy!
Little One had been anxiously awaiting our visit for weeks and was so excited!

Camp Snoopy has so many cool things to see and do! We even hung out behind the waterfall! 

On the backside of the waterfall!

The Ferris Wheel is always a fun time!

One of the new additions to Camp Snoopy was a play area with things to climb on and around!

So much to do! Love all the new fun in Camp Snoopy!

Pete and the little one had some fun together too while the big girls went on a roller coaster!

Seriously there is so much to do we could have spent all day just in Camp Snoopy!

Rapid River Run! The little one LOVES this ride!
And then she passed out!

Just kidding! We did take a break and let the others go on The Jaguar roller coaster! We watched as they zoomed by!
Watching her big sisters on the Jaguar roller coaster and dreaming of being taller!

No visit to Knott’s Berry Farm would be complete without food! At Grizzly Creek Lodge they have great traditional food and also all of these vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options!

They have all these , and options at Grizzly Creek Lodge! I can't tell you how cool this is!

We might have also had some stuffed churros! I tasted the stuffed Bavarian cream, strawberry and boysenberry! So good!
Boysenberry filled churros! Oh my, so good!

And then we had these french fries from the French Fry Co. in Calico! 
The chuckwagon fries at Calico Fry Co are awesome! Thin cut fries with cheese, grilled onions and thousand island!

As the afternoon started to get warmer we decided to see the new ice skating show, “Snoopy Unleashed”! I was so impressed with the ice skaters! They were entertaining and very talented. The girls and I all really enjoyed the show. It’s 45 min long and the perfect way to take a break and cool off in the air conditioning!

Just saw the new "Snoopy Unleashed " Show! It was so cool!

Before we headed home we stopped and bought some geodes! Best souvenir ever!
Picking out geodes to take home to remember our day.

No trip to Knott’s Berry Farm is complete without picking up some fudge for the ride home! I’ve been doing that since I was a kid myself with my grandparents and we do it with my kiddos too! 
Final stop of the day is always for some fudge to eat on the way home. Done this since I can remember with my own parents!

Here is an awesome video that shows all the fun…
