I know you’ve heard me say this before but seriously, I really do like theme parks. They are a great place for entertainment for all ages from 2 to 100 and you get the most “bang for your buck” when it comes to spending money there. This summer we’re taking advantage of the theme parks we have in Southern California and are headed out on an adventure to Knotts Berry Farm. While Knotts has tons of roller coasters for your thrill-seeking crowd, it also has an area full of adventures for the tots at Camp Snoopy. Camp Snoopy is celebrating its 30th Anniversary with a makeover and three new rides. For me, it’s more than just the rides that I’m excited about sharing with my kids but also introducing them to the lovable Peanuts Gang that I loved growing up as a kid.
So often things that I loved get shoved aside for the newest characters and I long for a nostalgic walk down memory lane with the kiddos. One of my favorite stuffed animals growing up was my Snoopy. I can still remember holding it as I slept and making sure it went with me everywhere in my backpack. I also remember the chicken dinners and delicious pie they served at the Knotts restaurant in the park…MMMM! Why would I not want to share that with my own kids?!
Some are confused that Knotts is actually far away from here but it’s actually just a short drive (about an hour to hour and 15 minutes) up the 5 Freeway. You’ll be there in a breeze and just imagine the surprise on your kid’s faces when you take them to someplace new! It’s like their birthday…full of surprises at every corner.
New this summer is Charlie Brown’s Kite Flyer (shown below), the Linus Launcher (shown above) and Pig Pen’s Mud Buddies. Perfect for the tot-sized bunch your kids will love riding these over and over again. One of the park’s classic rides, the Calico Mine Ride has reopened and features new and excited things at every turn.
My suggestion is to make a weekend of it and take advantage of the Knott’s Berry Farm park one day and then head across to Knott’s Soak City OC on the second day. Tickets are $35 per child (3-11) and adults are $45 per day for a single park ticket. For the best deal, season passes start at $96 for the year. If you plan to go more than once, the season pass is the way to go. For more information on tickets, season passes and park times visit, www.knotts.com.

Hope to see you there soon! xoxo, Mama
