Great report! I was only there for an hour during the day last weekend so I missed all the lights. Nice to see what I missed.

The Knott's Berry Farm (KBF) Discussion Thread

Postby joelwee » Sat Dec 14, 2019 11:45 am

So, I renewed my pass during the flash sale earlier this year, when the park offered a bring-a-friend-free ticket for renewing pass holders. Does anyone remember the deadline to use that ticket? I believe it was 12/15/19, but I can’t find any info on it anywhere.

Edit: I just called the park. It expired yesterday.

Catching up on photos from 2019 and wanted to post a batch from Knott's. Not a full trip report, not even gonna write captions for most of them, just sort of a "here, some stuff I thought looked cool."

Did a quick visit the morning of September 22 with John (coasterlvr) (thanks John!!!). Main point was to get the GhostRider credit I missed last year (wasn't operating for WCB) but also did a lap of the other good rides in about 2 and a half hours.

Just did one ride on GhostRider in the back row. It was fun. I thought it was funny to be on GCI trains on straight airtime hills, since GCIs are usually pretty twisted.

I got the regular version of the flume last year, and this year I got the Halloween overlay, which was really nice!

So, this one deserves a caption. There was a mantis hanging out at the Xcel control booth, and the ride ops would even pick it up, put it on their shoulder, or just let it sit on the button. I guess they're all good friends.

Sometimes it's fun to look at the detail on rides (and their queues) -- the mine train is a great example.

In 2018, I completely forgot to look for the Catawampus.

In 2019, we found it.

They look kinda weird from the side.
20190922_0244.jpg
That's it. Or...

...ok, that's not it, few bonus pictures from an impromptu Disney trip the night before. John knows how to get to the best spot in the parking garage in a hurry. Trust John for all your "watch the fireworks without paying a cent" desires.

This is one of those weird things that only looks right if you're standing at a certain angle.
20190921_1931.jpg
I don't care how expensive this place is, or how long the line is, because it's worth it. Well, slightly more worth it when you sneak into the dwindling line 5 minutes after the place closed.

OK, that's it for real now.

I have a question regarding Platinum Passes: is your home park (where you get benefits like BAFF) considered the park where you purchased your pass online or the park where you process it? I will be purchasing a PP from WoF's website since it is my home park and where I'd like to receive benefits, but will be visiting Knott's in the next couple weeks and processing my pass there (this has to be done as such since WoF is already closed). Will this change my home park to Knott's?

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

It's where you buy it from, not where you pick it up.

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.
