For those of you with the old Knott's Berry Farm app you most likely received a message today that there was an entirely new app available, not an update, but a new app.
If you didn't have the old app, head out to the Apple Store or Google Play Store to download the new one.
From the little but of time we spent on the app this afternoon I think it's going to be a great tool for new visitors and those of us who have vistited the park more times than we can count.
All pictures below from the App. Click on any of the pictures to see a larger version.
The first thing you'll see when opening the app for the first time is a slideshow of all of the app capabilities including the park map, ride details, calendar and car finder, which will definitely come in handy.
Once you open the app you'll see some ad's for things like the dining plan, link to get tickets, day planner and more.
You can also plan out your day and go straight to the park map which is divided nicely.
You can sort by type of attraction or activity you'd like to do (family rides, shopping, restrooms, coasters, shows, water rides, etc). Or you can display all attractions as shown on the right picture below.
Access the Knott's Newsfeed which appears to be their Twitter Feed, but I don't think it's all of their tweets.
On the right is the Friend Finder where you can get a Pin and send it to your friends and they can add you so you can find each other in the park. For us, maybe we'll have to do some kind of "find us" hunt next time we're at the park and you can all play online. =)
You can also access the parks Facebook page as well as create a Knott's Berry Farm postcard. Maybe we'll do a full Postcard update sometime.
Lastly, you can select Rides, Shows or Dining from the top and they are also divided by type.
Once you've found the ride or attraction you wish to see next, click on the map icon and it will open it up in Google Maps. Not sure if Apple devices use Apple Maps, but I'm guessing it just goes to the map app you've chosen as default. Who wants to use Apple Maps anyway. =)
So what do you guys think of the new app? Be sure to download it and tell us what you think in the comments below. Obviously using it at the park will be different than just playing around with it at the office, but we'll be sure to add to this review when we use it in the park.
Be sure to check back tomorrow morning as we're going to have a general Knott's park update.
