Happy Tuesday Everybody!! We are slowly but surely getting back into the swing of things after the New Year and after a bit of an extra week off it's time to get back into regular updates.
Today we have another New Years Eve update from Matt as he spent the evening at Knott's Berry Farm with his lovely wife Rose. Due to a bit of wet weather it was an awesome, kick back night at Knott's.

Welcome to Knott's on the last day of 2016!
Before we head into the park, let's take a look at the Knott's Marketplace.
We were asked by CA Great America to send them some pictures of Knott's Marketplace for a recent planning commission meeting. Would be awesome to see a similar Marketplace come to that park. It would be a great hit.
Amazing sandwiches and then Cinnamon Rolls!!
Remember when people used to debate online if this was an inversion or not? Good times, good times.
The Sky Cabin was still closed on NYE.
Lots of special lighting and entertainment
75 Seconds until 2017!!
Awesome fireworks show
What better way to kick off the New Year than with a Funnel Cake!!
Alright, that's gonna wrap it up for this Knott's update. We will be back at the park soon for the Knott's Pink event, be sure you check out all of that info here.
Also, the Active Fire and Police Personell free entry is back and you can find all of that info here.
This past New Years Eve Matt and his lovely wife made their way to Knott's Berry Farm to kick of 2016 in style.
We'll also have a few pics of the Chicken Dinner Restaurant and Pan for Gold work going on.

Unlike some other parks in the area, parking wasn't too bad upon arrival at Knott's in the mid afternoon.
Walls up around the Chicken Dinner Restaurant which is now closed for it's big remodel.
Lots of work going on to bring the Pan For Gold back to it's rightful place.
Merry Farm is also over for the year. No more Christmas on Engine 41 for another 11 months or so.
The Boardwalk on the last night of 2015
Matt takes such good pictures he even makes Boomerang look good. ;)
Love the lights in Ghost Town, so nice and not in your face
The Reflexx rocking Calico Stage.
Getting ready to ring in the new year
Looks like it was a great show
And we'll leave you with a great look at Ghost Town
Thanks for reading the update, we hope you enjoyed.
We should have more from Knott's in the next few weeks as we start to see the changes coming to Ghostrider, Chicken Dinner Restaurant, Ghost Town and the Pan for Gold area.
