Knott’s Berry Farm has some big plans for 2019, unveiling the full scoop on next year’s “Seasons of Fun” event that features brand new shows, attractions, and surprises throughout the year. It all starts with the announcement of a brand new adventure, Calico River Rapids, opening next summer. Bigfoot Rapids will go under a major renovation, making room for brand new show scenes, a new story overlay, dynamic water effects, and cutting edge animatronics.
Calico River Rapids will give voyagers a chance to explore as they search for new land through the outskirts of Calico. As the journey takes shape, visitors will encounter legendary frontiersmen who have plotted a path for settlers to follow. Yet, there will be plenty of challenges to overcome, including roaring rapids, indigenous wildlife, and peculiar homesteaders. The attraction will also feature brand new animatronics designed and manufactured by Garner Holt Productions, Inc.
There will be plenty of fun to keep visitors busy until opening day, including the return of the Knott’s Peanuts Celebration. The beloved Charles M. Schulz characters will take over the park throughout weekends from January 26-March 10, 2019 in addition to President’s Day on Monday, February 18th. The delicious food extravaganza that is the Knott’s Boysenberry Festival will also make its triumphant return at the end of March, bringing with it countless food and drink offerings all revolving around boysenberry. Due to the high demand, Knott’s has also proudly revealed that the event will expand to a full month, which will go from March 29-April 28th.
Once the sun sets on the Boysenberry Festival, the fan favorite Ghost Town Alive! will ride into town, bringing a new story line to the town of Calico. Guests will once again get the opportunity to take part in the immersive experience, unraveling the story and interacting with the townsfolk, leading them through a treasure trove of adventures throughout the day. Ghost Town Alive! will take place from May 25th-August 18th and weekends from August 24th through Labor Day. New nighttime entertainment offerings have also been teased, bringing the party to a full day of fun.
As we move into the end of September, things are about to get spooky with the family friendly daytime event, Knott’s Spooky Farm. Families with “little ghouls” ages 3-11 will be welcomed into a special celebration of Halloween exclusively on weekends. The event will feature fun activities, live entertainment, and more surprises. Knott’s Spooky Farm will go from September 28-October 27th.
However, the fun doesn’t end there, as the magic and wonder of Christmas will make its way to the park with the ever popular, Knott’s Merry Farm. From November 22nd-January 5th, Merry Farm will bring new holiday excitement to all, with more details to come as we get closer to the 2019 holiday season.
