Knott’s Berry Farms currently consists of 6 themed lands, all offering rides, shows, food, shopping, and more.

Ghost Town – This is the land where Knott’s Berry Farm originated. Modeled after an 1880s California “Boom Town” (the buildings here were transported from real mining towns across the Western U.S.), this land is home to the world’s first log flume ride, one of the longest roller coasters in the world – GhostRider, and a host of other themed attractions. The best part of this land, however, is the opportunity to go “panning” for real gold! There’s also a fun stunt show and the chance to enjoy some Wild West entertainment at the Calico Saloon, where they serve sarsaparilla and boysenberry punch.

Fiesta Village – A tribute to the Spanish heritage of California, Fiesta Village is home to a host of colorful rides, including some park favorites, like the twisting, turning Montezooma’s Revenge roller coaster, and Jaguar, a thrilling high-speed journey through the Temple of the Jaguar. As you explore this section of the park, you’re likely to hear the sounds of Mexico as genuine mariachi bands entertain the crowds several times a day. Dining opportunities include lots of Mexican favorites.

The Boardwalk – This area of the park is a tribute to Southern California’s seaside amusement piers. Here you’ll find typical Boardwalk rides, such as the Boomerang Roller Coaster; The Supreme Scream Launchpad; Perilous Plunge – the world’s steepest, tallest, and wettest water ride; bumper cars; and a Wild Mouse-style ride. Guests can also play laser tag, enjoy arcade games, and visit the Charles M. Schulz Theater, where they’ll view Broadway-style productions performed by talented actors, singers, and dancers.

Wildwater Wilderness – This themed area is home to one of the park’s most popular rides, Big Foot Rapids, a thrilling outdoor raft ride that will get you soaking wet as you shoot the rapids on the longest man-made whitewater river! Additional attractions include The Mystery Lodge, where guests can experience the magic of Native American story-telling.

Indian Trails – There are no rides in Indian Trails, but there are some unique dining and shopping experiences as well as opportunity to view daily demonstrations of Native American dance and music. Visitors can also browse authentic tee-pees, hogans, and big houses, representative of a number of different tribes of the American Southwest. Don’t miss the world’s largest totem pole, whose story traces the growth of the park.

Camp Snoopy – Knott’s Berry Farm was the first theme park to have a special “land” just for kids. Camp Snoopy is based – of course – on all those delightful Charles Schultz Peanuts characters. This 6-acre land is home to more than 30 kid-oriented attractions that are just the right size for little ones. Some can be enjoyed by adults as well, like the Charlie Brown Speedway, Timberline Twister, or the High Sierra Ferris Wheel. Snoopy and the gang regularly traverse this area and pose for photos with the kids.
