If you stay at the Days Inn at 8580 Stanton Ave, Buena Park/Anaheim - one of the cheapest in LA when you book ahead - this park is within walking distance if you perhaps wish to partake of a drink in the Wild West saloon bar in the Ghost Town.
America's first theme park once upon a time, theGhost Town ' Ghost Rider' rollercoaster- apparently the biggest single attraction in park history is worth the wait, and the Supreme Scream is up such a height you see it from miles away!

When you´ve been to Universal Studios, and you´ve done Disneyland, head over to Knottsberry Farm for something completely different. Its as I used to remember the funfairs in my childhood....lots of rides, some pretty hefty rollercoasters and all in a Wild West theme. Take a trip on the old western steam locomotive that runs around the park and witness a real life hold-up on the train...dont worry they wont take your valuables. Or hop in a wooden cart and be taken on rickety rails down into the heart of a goldmine. Be thrown about on the Mexican Hat Dance, a variation of the huge cups and saucers that spin you round and round, or sit on your favourite horse on a huge merry-go-round. This is a great fun day out for all the family, and if you´re really brave, take a chance on some of the biggest rollercoasters in California! Theres some great ice cream parlours or burger joints...in fact something for everyone. Dont miss the Sky Tower...a huge revolving viewing cabin that sits on a tower and rises slowly up to over 350ft...fabulous views of the park and most of LA!
We visited Knott on first day of our Holidays in California. We enjoyd very much Soak city but as we visited Disneyland and Universal during next days in LA we wouldn't have visited Knott theme park
Very nice Water park and in Knott you will have lower prices than in Disneyland and Universal.
Knott shows isn't so interesting if we compare with Disneyland and Universal, thats why lower prices :-)
Knott's Berry Farm
America's first 'theme' park actually has six different themed areas (Ghost Town, Fiesta Village, The Boardwalk, Camp Snoopy, Wild Water Wilderness, and Indian Trails). There are some excellent rides here, but not as great as Magic Mountain to the north. However, I've always thought of Knott's Berry as the best family-oriented theme park in greater LA.
Too many attractions to include on just one tip page - or even TWO! But thought I'd include at least a few more images.
Lots of great rides, lots of varied things to do, great family fun for all ages.
Season pass $80 for 4 or more.
