Welcome to the Knott’s Berry Farm 2019 Summer Giveaway held here at the Single Dad’s Guide to Life.  We are grateful to work with Knott’s Berry Farm, promoting their park.  It’s been such an amazing place for me and my daughter to go to over the years, especially since the divorce.  As a single parent, I always look for places I can take my daughter too which will help build the connection between us.  One of the first places I thought of was the Orange County amusement park right next door to where I live.  There is not one second I regret getting the annual passes with my daughter to Knott’s Berry Farm.

I’m sure if you have read my blog, you have spent a good deal of time listening to me extoll the virtues of this amazing amusement park.  In fact, I remember the very first post I wrote about Knott’s calling it a gem in Southern California.  And it truly is.  With annual passes barely sitting at 100 (which is way cheaper than any other park you are going to find locally), it’s a steal of a deal for family entertainment in Southern California.  And if you cannot front the money upfront, they have a payment plan you can go with.  In addition, they have meal plans, multiple parks and other amenities making your stay each and every time you visit the park a memorable one.

There are some great things going on this summer during Knott’s Berry Farm.  Three things specifically come to mind about adventures you can have if you visit Knott’s Berry Farm this summer.  And each of the three things means a unique and interesting adventure to take when you go to the park.  Knott’s makes sure to keep in touch with its roots, while always updating and bringing new things to life in the park.  Here are the three things you can enjoy and explore this summer at Knott’s Berry Farm.

Three New Adventures To Take At Knott’s Berry Farm 2019

Knott's Berry Farm Giveaway - Calico River Rapids

The New Calico River Rapids at Knott’s Berry Farm.

1)  Calico River Rapids

Two of the brave men who chartered new territory with Lewis And Clark have made their way to Calico this summer and they have a set up an outpost along the river to encourage more exploration and settling in the area.  They make sure to get you fully stocked along your trip.  But there will be Rapids ahead so be prepared.  I know people talk about some sort of “skunk monster” out there.  But it’s just a legend.  Right?  Right???  Find out for yourself at Knott’s Berry Farm now.

Knott's Berry Farm Giveaway - Ghost Town Alive

2)  Ghost Town Alive

From the mind of Ken Parks, VP of Entertainment at Knott’s Berry Farm, Ghost Town Alive returns for another year.  Inspired by the classic 70s film Westworld (not the recent television show), Parks put together a team to provide you with the most immersive entertainment anywhere.  With gold rushes and founder’s day celebrations to be had, Calico always crackles with life each summer.  But just like Westworld, the people at Knotts are not content with the same story to throw out each and every year.  Every year becomes new again as you tackle the untamed city and its colorful inhabitants.  My personal favorite is the Mayfields.  Whichever are your favorites, Ghost Town Alive provides something for the entire family to enjoy each and every summer in the Ghost Town streets.  Take a look at a previous year’s happenings here.
