Sol Spin will be the newest addition to the theme park’s world-class line up of more than 40 rides and attractions when it opens in spring 2017. Will you ride this one, looks pretty crazy!
Extended dates: This years mouthwatering Knott’s Boysenberry Festival will be expanded to 23 days. Kicking off on April 1st through the 23rd, celebrate the historic berry with countless one-of-a-kind boysenberry inspired dishes, drinks and more, plus enjoy some "berry" cool limited-time live entertainment the whole family will love!
It's back again! Ghost Town ALIVE: Last summer during the celebration of Ghost Town’s 75th anniversary, Knott’s debuted a one-of-a-kind interactive experience, Ghost Town Alive! This extremely popular experience is back again with new characters and even more interactive old west fun. Missed out on it last year? Well here's the breakdown. The citizens of Calico return to take guests on an immersive journey back in time to the old west of the late 1800s when bandits and cowboys battle for control. Get in on all the fun this summer with new story lines and plot twists that will be revealed throughout the season insuring guests will never experience the same adventure twice. We LOVED it last summer and can't wait to experience it again!
Last but not least the all new Boardwalk Barbecue restaurant located in the Boardwalk area of the park near Xcelerator is getting a makeover. This new fast-casual dining location will offer various BBQ favorites including smoked pork ribs, tri-tip and rotisserie chicken along with a selection of sandwiches and side dishes. Boardwalk Barbecue will also be featuring a selection of local and well known craft beers.
Soak City: To Open in May 2017
Knott’s Soak City Waterpark opens for their summer season in May 2017 and will be debuting 2 new water slide towers. Shore Break will stand over seven stories tall and offer six different thrilling water slide experiences. Four of the slides on the tower will feature an Aqua-Launch chamber which will innovatively launch guests as the floor under their feet drops them into an almost vertical free fall through a series of flat loops and S-curves in a translucent flume. It will also feature dueling tube slides that will zip riders through an enchanting series of drops and turns. The height requirement on this will be 48 inches.
The Wedge slide tower will be replacing Pacific Spin and be an open air family raft ride. Accommodating up to six guests at a time, it will descend down twists and turns with some unexpected drops. The minimum height requirement is 40 inches and 40 – 48 inches and children must be accompanied by a responsible person. This expansion project will also include updated shaded seating areas, cabanas and a remodeled Longboards’ Grill.
