|You should probably start your day with Hang Time (the 1st Dive coaster on the West Coast) and Xcelerator, the big launched coaster, followed by Monetzooma's Revenge (an intense, classic shuttle loop) and Jaguar (a not-so-classic family coaster with nice theming). Then take a ride on Sierra Sidewinder on your way to Silver Bullet, the park's inverted coaster, followed by Ghostrider (the woodie) and Pony Express. |
Voyage to the Iron Reef brings a high quality dark ride back to Knott's. The other not-to-be-missed attractions are the Timber Mountain Log Ride (probably KBF's best attraction) and the Calico Mine Ride. Railroad buffs will enjoy a ride on the Calico Railroad, complete with train robbers.
|Fried chicken, biscuits, and boysenberry jam are the stars here. Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant in the Marketplace outside the park's main gate has been an institution for years--some locals love it, others complain that it "isn't what it used to be." It also draws good-sized crowds during the summer tourist season (there's a take-out location, as well). |
Pink's, a famous Los Angeles hot dog joint, has a stand in the Marketplace also.
You'll find Johnny Rocket's, Panda Express, and the Spurs Chop House (steaks) inside the park. The Chow House serves chili and potato cream soup in a large sourdough bowl. Many people love Knott's boysenberry soda, too.
If none of these options sound appealing, there's always TGI Friday's, right across from the park's ticket booths.
