Just in time for the holidays we have an amazing giveaway from one of our favorite partners! Knott’s Berry Farm is the perfect day out for families with little ones.  A Season Pass to Knott’s Berry Farm is especially perfect for families with small children. Knott’s is the perfect combination of laid back and exciting. Our kids have grown up enjoying and exploring Knott’s Berry Farm and we think every family in SoCal should do the same!

Whether your little ones are in school part-time or are too young to be in school just yet, Knott’s Berry Farm is a lifesaver for families who are always looking for things to do before and after naps. With no blackout dates you can spend as little or as much time as you’d like at the park each day, and never feel rushed or stressed to accomplish more than the troop can handle. Here are some of the reasons why having Knott’s Berry Farm Season Passes are great for young families.

The Value! You can’t beat the value of Knott’s Season Passes. Passes start at $90 (or six payments of $15) for 364 days of fun, and remember that if your children are younger than three, they still get in free.It’s a great gift for your family or even someone else’s. Plus, having a season pass gives you discounts on both food and merchandise!

Camp Snoopy! Camp Snoopy is a never-missed stop for the little ones. Charming and shady, kids run from ride to ride feeling like they are away at summer camp with the Peanuts gang. It’s great to have an area specially designed for them, in a relaxing atmosphere that’s calming even for adults.

The History All Around the Park!
A simple stroll around the park can turn into a history lesson, from the California Mission models to the historic Calico Ghost Town, California’s deep history is rooted into every area of the park. With hidden gems like the Old School House or the Blacksmith Shop, your kiddos won’t even realize they’re learning history while they are having fun.

We love when we can combine play time with learning! Knott’s is a perfect place for us to foster the love of learning in our kids. Our kids absolutely love Ghost Town, they recently bought a geode with their own money and got quite the history and science lesson.  Watch for yourself….

Freedom to Run Around
Let’s face it, little kids need to run around to burn off all that energy. There are a lot of different places around the park that allow for kids to explore, such as the bridges and caves at Camp Snoopy. During summer and Christmas time, Ghost Town comes to life with interactive characters and storylines that allow your family to become of part of the story. The kiddos can even write and mail a letter to Santa at the Calico Town Hall.


Getting in the Holiday Spirit!
Knott’s Berry Farm provides kids special experiences at holiday time. Starting in the fall Knott’s Spooky Farm offers a daytime, not- at-all-scary way to celebrate the Halloween season with the kids. There are fun shows, activities (including trick-or-treating) and lots of yummy seasonal treats. For the holidays Knott’s magically transforms into Knott’s Merry Farm, adding festive shows, entertainment (including a daily Christmas tree lighting and snow fall), food and decorations to its already fun-filled agenda. There are so many delicious treats specially made for the holiday season like the warm homemade cookies and cold milk that you can find in Santa’s Cabin, while visiting Santa himself. The kids also love all the great Christmas shows starring the Peanuts characters.

And again, starting at $90 per person, it’s the gift that keeps on giving all year long. The special memories you share at Knott’s Berry Farm, will forever be in your little one’s hearts, as well as yours.

  33. Cory Boll says:

    My family went for the first time on Thanksgiving day this year. We had so much fun and want to go back!

  59. Ryan Horikoshi says:

  72. Tondi Greenberg says:

    Knotts is fun for all ages! No blackout dates on the passes is really awesome.

  73. Katy says:

    we took my dad to Knotts not too long ago he’s in a wheelchair and it was so accessible and not as crowded as other parks, the best feature is no blackout dates you don’t have the pressure to see and do everything with a limited amount of time, days making it more of a relaxing experience for the family .

    • kate says:

      I do love that it is laid back! I am glad to hear it is very accessible – most parks have really been making an effort in that direction and that is wonderful!

  74. Erin Oldham says:

    How exciting!!! Love reading your blog!

  75. Michele Mechling says:

    What? NO BLACKOUT DATES?? This is especially amazing compared to other passes I have had. Now that the kids are getting older it’s harder to take them out of school for fun.

  76. Heather Weisman says:

    Unlimited visits to Knott’s Soak City as well!!! I’m sold! So exciting!!!

  77. Refugio says:

    It’s a great value, no blackout days, and not so crowded!

  78. Angie Ohr says:

    I love Knott’s Berry Farm, I’ve only been a few times but it’s usually during the holidays (when police, fire, and first responders get in free) I love that they have no black out dates and that it’s a very relaxed day when we’ve gone without a bunch of long lines. My favorite attraction will always be the horse drawn carriage :). Would love to win some Season’s passes.

    • kate says:

      Don’t you LOVE that Knott’s provides FREE admission for first responders, police, fire fighters, and military? I honestly wish every park did – I know not all can bc maybe crowds would be too insane, but Knott’s is an amazing park and we know many friends and family members that get to enjoy a fun and relaxing day at the park after a long year of public service. Such a wonderful way to say thank you to those that protect our country and community.

  79. Rena Frey says:

    I love that there is a discount for food so you don’t have to plan ahead and take food with you. You can be spontaneous and go up last minute. Win for moms!

  80. I loved Knott’s as a kid – riding donkeys (no more), going to Independence Hall (free), and it used to be that you could go into the front part of Knott’s for free, too. Memories of giant pickles, chicken dinners, train rides and ice-skating Peanuts fill my heart of times I lived close by. What a great adventure!
    The boys and I once went on Thanksgiving – not a line in sight!

  81. Jennifer Thomas says:

    I like that you can pay as low as $15 a month !

  82. Vanessa V. says:

    I have only been once to Knotts Berry Farm in my entire life, but I truly liked it. I like posts like these and I would love to win this wonderful giveaway.

  83. Rio says:

  100. Lorenza A says:

    I have a lot of childhood memories at Knotts, yet, I’ve never taken my kids there ! My middle daughter is 4 and rides are a hit or a miss with her but I think Camp Snoopy would be wonderful for her! My 2 year old is a little more adventurous and I think she would enjoy it. Everything looks fun and enjoyable for her. A plus side is that the area is big enough for her to run around and let her energy out in between activities. Hopefully we to meet The Peanuts Gang in person !

  101. Ashley Smith says:

    We have never been able to go to Knotts but we would love to explore Camp Snoopy! Thank you for this opportunity!

  102. Lauren says:

    I like being able to go to all of the seasonal activities.

  103. Kim Nusenow says:

    I love the idea of season passes when you can just go for a couple of hours and not feel like you have to spend the whole day. Also love the great discounts and offers to season passholders . Thanks for the great contests!

  104. Amy Jorgensen says:

    Wow great giveaway! This world be fun for our family.

  105. Cynthia says:

    I love that there are no blackout dates!

  106. Brenda Silvertooth says:

    I haven’t been to Knott’s in years and did not realize what a bargain the annual pass is, especially in *ahem* comparison to other area theme parks. At the pricing, no blackout dates is a steal, and added discounts make this one attractive indeed! Thanks so much for the chance.

    • kate says:

      it is a REALLY good value! and crowds aren’t bad except during peak season – we love it! We of course love the other park you speak of LOL, but yes, Knott’s is an AMAZING value and it is super fun!

  107. April says:

    We love Knotts Berry Farm. It used to be my hangout place when I was a teen. 🙂

  108. Olivia Bernal says:

    No blackout dates is the best feature. You can enjoy Knotts any day of the year! Awesome!

  109. Cyndi says:

    No blackout dates is key! We love Knott’s and have been so thankful to visit during their free First Responder days. Thank you for the opportunity to win season passes!

  110. Donna W. says:

    I love the idea of being able to go to Knott’s whenever you want. I love the rare chance we can take the family and to be able to take them often would be amazing.

  111. Lindsay says:

    No blackout dates?!?! That’s amazing! Awesome giveaway. Thank you!

  112. Katherine Benard says:

    My friend and her family have passessment and it would be fun to spend days with them there.

  113. sharon yoho says:

    Knotts is one of our families favorite places, we try to go at least once a year.

  114. Shawna says:

    I haven’t been to Knotts in a very long time. My kids have never been.

  115. Alison Babcock says:

    Knott’s is a wonderful place. And really nice employees too. I can’t ride too many rides because of my wheelchair, but it offers a lot to do anyway. And the shopping’s great too. lol.
    I love Knott’s!

  116. Jenniferanne says:

    I like that you get free parking with the Platinum Pass!

  117. Serena Adams says:

    I love that there are no blackout dates with the season pass! My oldest has just gotten tall enough to ride some of the bigger coasters and my littlest loves Camp Snoopy. There’s something for everyone and the holidays and special events keep it exciting year round!

  118. Trina says:

    We love camp snoopy!!

  119. Jenn says:

    No black out dates is huge. It’s tough on a reaching salary to get 2 kids into an amusement park. Good for Knotts for keeping a pass reasonable. We keep talking about taking the kids, they have never been!

  120. Carey says:

    No blackout dates is amazing 🙂

  121. Catharene Woods says:

    I can’t believe I just found your blog. You’re local and have so much good stuff on here!

  122. Michelle M says:

    It’s a place that the younger ones can enjoy too! Great for all ages!

  123. Christine says:

    As I was scrolling down to leave my comment, my eye caught the post saying Knott’s admits first responders, police, firefighters and military for free. I think that is amazing! My kids have been begging us for season passes for the last few years, but buying them for the family can be expensive (especially when parks have blackout dates!). I love that Knott’s not only honors public servants, but also their loyal customers by giving them the full value of their purchase, by not limiting their visits! My daughter is scheduled to perform at the park in the spring and I would love the passes so we can go watch her sing! We’ve only been to Knott’s once and had a great family day. Would love to have many more of those days!

  124. Jenny says:

    We love knotts!

  125. elizabeth m says:

    So cool! Thanks for all the great pics! Your models are awesome!

  126. Katie Lear says:

    The best part of a Knotts season pass is that it has no block out dates. I had one when o was younger and went with my sisters once a week. I love going back there around Christmas time to see it all decorated and buy an ornament for our tree.

  127. Catheryn Cervantes says:

    No blackout dates! Love all the special events throughout the year that are included too!

  128. Tiffany says:

    Knott’s is an affordable alternative to the overpriced other theme parks!

  129. Kat O says:

    I love Knott’s Ghost Town. My daughter is finally old enough to walk around and see some of the amazing things. I love visiting the museum, school house, and just recently found the weaving shop.

  130. Debnmike moretti says:

    I love that there are zero blocked dates! Plus, it’s a great deal.

  131. Tyneisha says:

    Love the unlimited visits and the hotel discounts for when you want to make your visit a mini getaway from home!

  132. Cindy H says:

    There are no BLACK out dates….The Price…..My kids face when there!!!!

  133. Jazmin Cervantes says:

    The fact that Knotts is so little kid friendly is amazing!

  134. BarbaraMae says:

    I love that there are no blackout dates so pass holders can visit Knott’s whenever they want! The extra visit in 2016 is a pretty fun benefit, too.

  135. I have a 3 and a 1 year old and it sounds like Knotts is the perfect place to take them! I hope we win!!

  136. We went to Knott’s for the first time with the kids a few months ago. Love that there were tons of roller coasters with thrill ratings so everyone could choose their level of adventure :).

    Also loved the “history.” The kids had a great time visiting the shops and museums and hearing about the Old West.

  137. I used to live in Long Beach. We visited Knotts all the time. My son has never been. It would be fun to create new memories there with him. 🙂

  138. The price – that is super reasonable for a theme park season pass!

  139. Danielle says:

    Getting to ride Sidewinder with my daughter as many times as I want!

  140. abby hewes says:

    Ok, so there is too much stuff that I’m stoked about..
    Early Entry to Select Rides at Knott’s Berry Farm During Summer
    Food discounts (cause Mrs. Knott’s fried chicken is where it’s at!)
    365 Admission!

    I would love to take my kids there. We used to go once a year as a kid.

  141. Christine Boyce says:

    I love that there are no black out days and discounts on food. That is a huge win for my family of snackers.

  142. Suzie Williams says:

    I think the early ride access in the summer is a pretty cool perk! The food and drink discounts are a close second.
