Our writer Jason spent his New Years Eve at Knott’s Berry Farm having some good old fashioned fun as he and friends took in some live shows, delicious desserts and of course, tackled the rides. Not surprisingly, their first stop of the night was Camp Snoopy, a treasured attraction at Knott’s Berry Farm.
Did you know that this year Camp Snoopy celebrates the big 3-0?! Knott’s is doing the big year up right with a complete restoration of the entire land. Plus, they just announced three new rides coming to the land of High Sierra fun!
- Charlie Brown’s Kite Flyer invites campers to “fly a kite” with Charlie Brown and soar above the land’s winding paths and babbling streams – but watch out for the kite-eating tree! This 32-passenger adventure allows guests to sit side-by-side on 16 swings for a spin that whisks riders up to 18 feet above the ground. As the tree rises, good ol’ Charlie Brown is revealed upside down and all tied up in kite string! Charlie Brown’s Kite Flyer will replace Snoopy Bounce.
- Pig Pen’s Mud Buggies lets tykes climb aboard their very own all-terrain vehicle for an adventurous ride around the High Sierras. Six four-seater ATVs will spin, bounce, and bump up to 24 guests at a time, while Pig Pen looks on from his center perch. Pig Pen’s Mud Buggies will replace Log Peeler.
- Linus Launcher recreates that classic Peanut’s moment when Snoopy grabs Linus’ blanket and launches him on a wild ride. On Linus Launcher, guests lay on one of twelve “blankets” as they fly round and round. Up to 24 guests lay side-by-side while Snoopy launches them up almost 10 feet in the air. Guests will enjoy a Woodstock’s-eye view of Huff ‘n Puff, The Grizzly Creek Lodge, and all of Camp Snoopy below! Linus Launcher will replace Charlie Brown’s Speedway.
You can see all three of the new attractions in tis sketch of the revitalized area. Pig Pen’s Mud Buggies is front left; Charlie Brown’s Kite Flyer is front right and Linus Launcher is back right.
Camp Snoopy construction began on January 6th and will continue until the grand re-opening in early summer. YOu can stay up to date on the exciting progress at Knott’s Website. However, they will also be unveiling new chnages and taking you behind the scenes over social media! Make sure you’re following them (as well as #CampSnoopy) on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
