#1 of 10 in Things to do in Buena Park
Hold onto your hats as you take the plunge on the world’s first looping roller coaster at Knott's Berry Farm. Originally a small California berry farm, the amusement park features over 65 hectares (160 acres) of thrill rides, water attractions, and games and arcades, spread throughout six themed areas. Speed down rushing rapids at almost 3.6 m (12 ft) per second on the Timber Mountain Log Ride or enjoy panoramic views of the park and surrounding area from 55 m (180 ft) up in the air on the Sky Cabin ride. Fast track tickets are available for an extra charge if you’d like to avoid long wait times for rides.

  • Had a great time as always at this affordable amusement park. There are lots of roller coaster type of rides for those that love that sort of thing. Due to injuries, just enjoyed the calm train ride and watching shows and shopping. Food at Boardwalk very tasty! Pulled pork delicious! Tray the Boysenberry BBQ sauce. Yummy!
  • We spent an awesome day at the park. If you only have one day to spend then you might consider buying a fast pass to ride more rides. We didn't buy the pass so we only rode about 5 rides due to lines, but it was still great for us. We had lunch at Johnny Rockets. The wait for a table of 6 was only 15 minutes and the food was delicious! The prices were a little higher because it's in the amusement park but the portions we're good sized and the food was served quickly. KBF does have a BIG problem with line jumping. Lines are not monitored well by employees. We saw people line jump in front of an employee and they did nothing. Overall it was a great experience and I would recommend it to everyone!
