After reporting record attendance this year, Knott’s Berry Farm is riding high as it moves into its 100th Anniversary celebration next year. The century celebration will include a bunch of must-see surprises in 2020.

A Knott’s Family Reunion

Kicking off May 15 through August 30, the celebration will bring together old classics with new favorites, which includes the return of the beloved Bear-y Tales story in an all-new 4-D interactive dark ride, bringing to life a continuation of the classic attraction initially commissioned by the Knott Family and created in 1975 by the legendary attraction designer Rolly Crump!

Knott’s will be celebrating its 100th milestone anniversary by immersing guests in new and nostalgic experiences throughout the park, delighting guests of all ages.

Knott’s Bear-y Tales: Return to the Fair

Knott's Bear-y Tales LogoThe story for the new 4-D interactive dark ride takes place 34 years after the original adventure and will follow Boysen Bear and Girlsen Bear as they travel to the Country Fair to earn the blue ribbon prize for their famous boysenberry pies, but Crafty Coyote is back along with his mischievous pups intent on stealing all the pies for themselves. Memorable scenes from the original attraction that will be re-imagined here include the Boysenberry Pie Factory, Frog Forest, Fortune Teller Camp, Thunder Cave, and Weird Woods, culminating in a celebration at the County Fair!
Guests will climb aboard ride vehicles equipped with jelly blasters to try and recover the stolen boysenberry pies as they travel through whimsical and beautiful environments while competing for the highest score.
