There’s only one place bursting with adventures all summer long, both day and night, and that place is Knott’s Berry Farm.

Just on the outskirts of Calico, a new expedition in an uncharted territory awaits eager explorers with the debut of the park’s newest attraction, Calico River Rapids. Opening this summer, the new white water raft ride takes explorers on a search for new land where indigenous wildlife, treacherous roaring rapids, dynamic water effects plus a variety of wild surprises will be encountered along the way. The attraction comes to life with new animatronics and special effects designed and manufactured by Garner Holt Productions, Inc.
At the Charles M. Schulz Theatre Beach Blanket Beagle brings the beach fun to the farm with this musical dance party set to the classic beach comber tunes of the 60’s and 70’s, and stars the coolest beagle around, Snoopy! Showing on select dates from June 7th – August 11th.
The summer adventure continues long after the sun goes down, with an all-new nighttime summer party that will liven up the night.
