Knott’s is kicking off its 2018 Seasons of Fun with the addition of the all-new Knott’s Peanuts Celebration! For the first time the Peanuts characters are taking over the entire park. Guests can enjoy brand new character experiences, photo opportunities, activities, and live entertainment - all while pigging out on delicious themed treats. The celebration takes place on weekends from January 27 through February 25, 2018, plus Presidents’ Day. We were super excited to check out this new event, and hope you’ll read along to see everything that’s new! On with the report...

Knott's has been getting better with these special events each year, and the longevity of the Peanuts characters is remarkable.

Awesome report, Charlie Brownies look amazing lol This event seems like it would be a great idea to have at other cedar fair parks.

I agree, I could definitely see this working at the other parks - it’d be a great way to bring in the family demographic during the slow season.

One thing Knott's keeps doing (which I LOVE) is finding ways to compete by not competing. The park is turning inward to capitalize on what makes it unique and creating its own experience, rather than trying to copy the Disney/Universal experience. In the last few years, we've been seeing a lot of really positive investment in the park and in keeping its legacy and charm alive and I think that's great.

Peanuts Celebration, Boysenberry Festival, new coaster, Ghost Town Alive, Haunt, and Merry Farm... gonna be a jam packed (pun intended) year.

This is amazing! Our boys loved Knott's last year and they keep asking to go back. I LOVE that they are bringing more characters throughout the park. That was the only thing that my boys didn't like when went went was that the characters were only in Camp Snoopy. I hope Knott's keep that around for the rest of the year and not just during special events.

You just found out about the train penny crushing?!?!? When I was a kid, my sister and I did that every time we went to Knott's (and we actually did it at the train tracks near the beach by our house too). My boys weren't interested in it because it doesn't leave a design on it. My oldest still has his crushed penny book that he places pennies in whenever he can (and he got his Boomerang penny!).

This is a great report and I agree with Chuck that Knott's is really stepping up their game. I like that they are really trying to get back into the family market where for awhile they were only caring about thrill rides. These family experiences are what should make these types of parks successful.
