Summertime at Knott’s Berry Farm brings back exciting entertainment beginning this Friday with the return of immersive, western escapades in Ghost Town Alive!
This summer, there's something fun for everyone at Knott's Berry Farm, with original adventures that can't be found anywhere else. Your favorite town of Calico comes to life once again with the return of the award-winning, interactive Ghost Town Alive! Two years have passed without a celebration and the citizens are determined to make this year’s return a great one. Guests are invited to become the star of this summer’s new action-packed storyline in the streets of Ghost Town. Each guest has the power to unlock secret missions with characters, influence the day’s events, and take on mind-challenging puzzles in this immersive version of the Old West. Ghost Town Alive! will offer new adventures, roles and characters this summer on select days starting May 20.
The summer adventure continues long after the sun goes down, with a nighttime summer party that will liven up the night. Knott's Summer Nights offers a variety of live music, classic summer eats, and games for the whole family to enjoy. A summer night party is not complete without an abundance of food and drinks, and no theme park does food quite like Knott’s. The Knott’s culinary team creates tasty twists to classic summer dishes, from Crab Cake Sliders and Korean BBQ Burgers to Vegan Lettuce Wraps– not to mention Peach and Pineapple Shaved Ice. Guests can experience their favorite summer food in a whole new way at Knott’s Summer Nights. A great way to indulge in all the new food items is by purchasing a tasting card priced at $50 (or $45 for season pass holders). The tasting card will offer six tastings from a selection of over two dozen seasonal-inspired dishes and drinks.
Summertime at Knott's calls for a visit to Knott's Soak City Waterpark. With its longest season yet, the waterpark is opened on select days starting May 21 through September 18. There's only one place to experience fun all day and night, and that place is Knott's Berry Farm.
