Guests can Experience all of Knott’s Seasons of Fun With a 2018 Season Pass on Sale now

for the Lowest Price of the Year

Buena Park, Calif. – Knott’s Berry Farm has several new additions in store for 2018 including

the debut of the first dive coaster on the West Coast, HangTime, along with the introduction of

the all new Knott’s PEANUTS Celebration, an expanded Knott’s Boysenberry Festival and a

brand new storyline for Ghost Town Alive!. A 2018 season pass offers year-round visits to the

park with no blackout dates and is the best way to experience all of Knott’s Seasons of Fun

throughout the year. Here’s what guests can expect to see at the farm starting next year.

Knott’s Berry Farm will kick off its 2018 Seasons of Fun with the addition of the all-new Knott’s

PEANUTS Celebration, uniquely dedicated to celebrating the beloved PEANUTS characters.

Guests can join Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy and the rest of the PEANUTS Gang as the

park celebrates the world that Charles M. Schulz created. The park will be adorned with

Peanuts inspired décor, new character experiences, comic strip inspired photo opportunities,

deliciously themed-treats and new whimsical shows. The Knott’s PEANUTS Celebration will

take place weekends starting January 27 through February 25, 2018, plus Presidents’ Day.

The yummiest season at the Farm keeps growing each year and in 2018 the Knott’s

Boysenberry Festival is expanding to 24 days dedicated to celebrating the historic little berry

that started it all. The event will offer countless one-of-a-kind boysenberry inspired dishes

created in-house by the Knott’s culinary team. Each year the menu ranges from deliciously

sweet desserts to zesty savory dishes, plus tasty beverages all bursting with scrumptious

boysenberry flavors. The event offers a wonderful tasting experience for everyone to indulge in

and features world-class entertainment, music, activities for the whole family, a wine and local

craft beer tasting garden, and so much more. The Knott’s Boysenberry Festival begins March

16, 2018 through April 8, 2018 and is included with park admission.

Summertime at Knott’s will invite thrill seekers to climb aboard HangTime, the first dive coaster

on the West Coast. HangTime will send riders up a vertical lift hill into a 15-story 96-degree

drop – the steepest drop in California. The coaster’s train will come to a halt and will leave

riders suspended for several seconds before descending in a beyond-vertical drop, through

2,189 feet of steel track and five gravity-defying inversions. HangTime will be only the second

rollercoaster in the Western Hemisphere to feature a negative-g stall loop, which gives riders

the sensation of floating. HangTime’s ride structure itself will come to life and illuminate the

Boardwalk area with colorful nighttime track chase lighting that will accompany the coaster

train, as it travels across the track. The new dive coaster is set to open at Knott’s in Summer

2018.

The park’s interactive summer story of the Wild West, Ghost Town Alive!, continues with a

brand new storyline that takes a wild turn for the townsfolks of Calico during summer 2018. At

the end of this past summer’s story, the characters of Ghost Town Alive! discovered gold inside

the Calico Mine and next summer’s story explodes as everyone in town is in the middle of a

Gold Rush. Guests are invited to become a part of the action by joining the hunt with the local

cowboys, cowgirls, shopkeepers and the rest of the townsfolk. Ghost Town Alive! will offer new

adventures, roles, characters and entertainment that will delight guests of all ages during the

wildest season at the farm.

The Seasons of Fun festivities continue through fall and winter for guests and passholders with

the two family celebrations of Knott’s Spooky Farm and Knott’s Merry Farm. Knott’s Spooky

Farm is the daytime family-friendly Halloween celebration which takes place weekends in

October. Knott’s Merry Farm provides the perfect backdrop for your family’s holiday memories

with a park transformation that surrounds you with the glorious sights, sounds and scents of

the holiday season with classic shows, seasonal treats and so much more.

TERRIFYING NEW NIGHTMARES IN STORE FOR THE 45TH SEASON OF KNOTT’S SCARY FARM. “Where Nightmares Never End…”

The most haunting Halloween event in Southern California, Knott’s Scary Farm, returns with unimaginable scares and innovative thrills for its 45th season. The fully transformed park will feature 13 uniquely haunted mazes and attractions, including the return of Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, for her last performance as she bids farewell to the Scary Farm crowds with an all-new show. Knott’s Scary Farm is back for 25 horrifying nights from September 21 – October 31. This year’s Knott’s Scary Farm experience has all the ingredients of a truly terrifying nightmare, but unlike most dreams, Knott’s Scary Farm is a nightmare you can’t wake up from.

The new season will bring unnerving nightmares to life as it debuts three all-new, unique haunted attractions, each introducing new menacing storylines and heinous never-before- seen characters.

Dark Ride (New for 2017) – Guests will journey through an abandoned carnival ride where cruel characters still linger in the shadows in Dark Ride, Knott’s Scary Farm’s newest maze. The carnival attraction has become a refuge for sideshow freaks and now those shunned performers have created an ominous world where they plan to unleash terror on those who enter. Dark Ride will lead brave visitors through a treacherous path and into the bowels of a long neglected attraction as sinister shadows and horrifyingscenes cast darkness over the once pleasant ride.Dark Ride Hero Image With Logo

Pumpkin Eater (New for 2017) – Daring guests will attempt to survive the wrath of the murderous 7-foot tall creature that haunts the old woods surrounding The Hollow in this year’s new maze, Pumpkin Eater. The notorious creature is on the prowl, hidden within the dark

confines of the haunted town he once terrorized. To escape the sinister Pumpkin Eater’s wrath all who enter must go on a quest through the silent town of victims, face a cave of crawling insects and solve the labyrinth of thorns that blocks the only way out.Pumpkin Eater Hero Image With Logo 1080p

Trick-or-Treat: Lights Out (New for 2017) – Scared of the dark? Returning more sinister and twisted than ever before, guests are invited to step inside the Green Witch’s haunted home and venture through its dark pathways in Trick or Treat: Lights Out. Armed with only a faulty flashlight, brave visitors must face the terror of the Green Witch’s house completely in the dark. Featuring new state-of-the-art effects, unexpected scares and other eerie surprises, Trick-or- Treat is back to terrorize like never before.Trick-or-Treat_Lights-Out-Hero-Image-With-Logo-1080p

Returning Favorites

Returning for the last and final year at Knott’s Scary Farm, Elvira is back with a bang, in a brand new spectacular farewell show, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. The exclusive performance will pay homage to the Queen of Halloween’s celebrated comedy-horror film, complete with musical numbers, dance and humor. Knott’s Scary Farm will be the exclusive home of Elvira for her final performance this Halloween season.Elvira - Mistress of the Dark

Special Ops: Infected – The city is in need of brave soldiers looking to stop the zombie apocalypse in an all-out war against the undead in this interactive experience, Special Ops: Infected. Armed with specially designed laser guns, brave groups of guests will embark on a mission to find the cure to the infection by navigating through sprawling city streets and buildings. The popular attraction includes blood thirsty zombies, more interactive targets than ever before, along with multiple action-packed surprises hidden around every corner.Special Ops Infected 2017 Hero Image with logo

Shadow Lands – A fulfilling life ensures a soul safe passage into eternity, but what happens to the souls of soldiers slain in battle? The Shadow Lands maze invites valiant wanderers to fight off demon samurais whose souls are cursed to rot within the depths of purgatory. Guests will embark on a quest through a sacred shrine, an ancient Japanese temple and into the midst of the shadow lands.Shadow Lands Hero Image with Logo Slide

PARANORMAL, INC. – A fan favorite, Paranormal Inc., returns to Hayden Hill for another bone-chilling year. Featuring high flying aerial stunts and scares, guests investigate a haunted

hospital. Where demonic spirits have been detected throughout the mysterious halls and new unexpected bloodcurdling surprises are hidden around every corner.Paranormal Inc Hero with Logo Slide

Red Barn – The horrifying, blood-soaked Red Barn re-opens its doors, filled with carnivorous animals seeking to prey on human flesh in the park’s goriest maze. Legend has it, the farmer who owns the barn was transformed into a heinous creature who sends his sadistic sons to procure food and new victims. None dare enter the barn, for those who enter, never escape.Red Barn Hero Image with logo slide

The Tooth Fairy – This twisted tooth fairy steals more than just baby teeth as he drags his victims out of their bedroom window and into a world of cruel dentistry. Unbelievable special effects include a blackout room through which guests must feel their way out, a disorienting x- ray strobe light room, and a final encounter with the terrifying tooth fairy himself. Say aahhh.Tooth Fairy

Voodoo – Order of the Serpent: The haunting legend of Papa Legba continues as guests follow him on his foreboding journey to conjure the serpent demon goddess in the outskirts of New Orleans. Trudge cautiously through the cursed swamps of the Deep South, where creatures search the murky bogs for their next bloody sacrifice and demons curse the innocent with Voodoo hexes.Voodoo

The Hanging®: – A live stage show on the Calico Mine stage irreverently looks back at the year’s pop culture with killer comedy. Notorious for its special effects, pyrotechnics and high- flying stunts, The Hanging is a no-holds-barred assault on pop culture’s most infamous moments of the past year. A must see parody!

Scare Zones

Knott’s Scary Farm is far more than a collection of haunted attractions. Every night monsters spill out onto the streets and turn theme park midways into murderous scare zones. From the world famous Ghost Town Streets to the Boardwalk area filled with evil clowns, there’s nowhere to hide at Knott’s Scary Farm.The Hanging Fake Noose 2017

Ghost Town Streets is the original and largest, most terrifying scare zone that started it all. Bands of half-human, half-animal monsters prowl the streets and inhabit the fog, while the notoriously startling sliders lunge from every fog-filled corner of the land. Fiesta De Los Muertos features colorful costumes and larger than life stilt walkers in a dark scare zone. In the

Boardwalk, clowns crave your undying attention in the CarnEVIL scare zone. Returning for a second year, The Hollow scare zone will terrorize guests as they find themselves in a war between three covens of witches and their armies of the undead. The fog-filled streets along with the army of the undead treacherously blend into the shadowy night as they frighten all whom they encounter. Featuring an all new fiery finale, The Hollow is a practically all new with a themed maze to accompany it.

“Hangtime” The Only Dive Coaster on the West Coast to debut at Knott’s Berry Farm in 2018

Before you read my copy and paste 😉 I thought I’d let you in on my thoughts on the new Coaster coming to the Boardwalk next year 🙂 Anyways, I always have had a gut feeling that it would be a Dive Coaster. Knott’s is known for “Firsts”, But had no idea who the manufacturer was going to be, I was hoping for a B&M Dive Machine but they are big coasters, look at Silver Bullet lol. None the less, I think “HangTime” is a great addition to The Farm and Boardwalk area, that whole area will be complete with HangTime opening up next year. The only thing I think could use a little refurb is the midway games, all of them 😉 Otherwise Boardwalk is looking great along with the rest of the park, it has been fun covering the upgrades at Knott’s the last 5 years beginning with the Perilous Plunge removal. Now for Mary’s thoughts 😉

Tim.

Ermmmmmm, I am going to cry the first time I ride it. The 96 Degree Angle of riders just hanging there (hence the name HangTime) is scary and I’m scared lol. But that is because I am a wuss, Tim will help with this fear lol. Overall, I am excited that Knott’s is getting a new coaster. Hooray!!!!!

Contest Winners! The other 2 didnt show 😦 Thanks for playing, maybe ther will be more  opportunities like this in the future stay tuned 😉

 

 

Knott’s Berry Farm will welcome HangTime, a brand new steel rollercoaster – and the only dive coaster on the West Coast – to the theme park in the 2018 summer season. HangTime will tower 150 feet over the Boardwalk area, showcasing gravity-defying inversions, mid-air suspensions and twisting dive tracks.
UO5A5756
HangTime will send riders up a vertical lift hill into a 15-story 96-degree drop – the steepest drop in California. The coaster’s train will come to a halt once the highest peak is reached, and will leave riders suspended at the crest for several seconds staring downward at a 60-degree angle, giving the illusion of a disappearing track. Then the train will suddenly descend in a beyond-vertical drop, through 2,198 feet of steel track and five gravity-defying inversions. HangTime will be only the second rollercoaster in the Western Hemisphere to feature a negative-g stall loop, which gives riders the sensation of floating.
UO5A5760
“HangTime’s disappearing track creates a memorable illusion of the unknown as riders feel like they are hanging over a cliff, staring at the ground in nervous anticipation,” said Jon Storbeck, vice president and general manager, Knott’s Berry Farm. “People who crave that adrenaline rush will want to ride this coaster again and again. Introducing a coaster like HangTime firmly positions Knott’s Berry Farm as a must see attraction among Southern California theme parks, and we look forward to welcoming our guests to this new experience.”
HangTime Night Time Rendering With Logo

HangTime’s ride structure itself will come to life and illuminate the Boardwalk area with colorful nighttime track chase lighting that will accompany the coaster train’s travels across the smooth steel track. The coaster continues Knott’s legacy in rollercoaster innovation and industry firsts; the park introduced the very first corkscrew inversion rollercoaster with Corkscrew, and the first flywheel launch coaster with Montezuma’s Revenge.
UO5A5764
HangTime is manufactured by Gerstlauer Amusement Rides, GmbH, and is the company’s next-generation “infinity coaster” model.
