Summer at Knott’s Berry Farm just got more lively! Not only can you be the star of your own show as Ghost Town Alive! returns, but there’s a new white water attraction in Calico River Rapids as well as a nighttime party in Knott’s Summer Nights! An all-new adventure awaits this summer at Knott’s! Whether you are there for the roller coaster rides, food, shopping, or the shows, you’ll want to get the most of your day by grabbing an Entertainment Show Guide upon arrival.

New! Calico River Rapids

Just on the outskirts of Calico, a new expedition awaits eager explorers with the debut of Calico River Rapids. The raft ride will take explorers on a search for newland where they will encounter new animatronic creatures, treacherous roaring rapids, dynamic water effects, plus a variety of wild surprises along the way.

Summer Nights

When the sun sets, Knott’s Summer Nights kicks off with numerous ways to enjoy the nighttime festivities – live music, foods and games! Enjoy a variety of bands that rotate at the Calico Park stage nightly, rock out to a top 40’s band at the Calico Mine Stage or bop to beats of the Boardwalk DJ around Charleston Circle Fountain. This experience starts June 7th and runs until Aug 11th offering items available from 6pm to park closing. You will find food stands near Calico Mine Stage including Seasonal Boysenberry Sausage on a Bun, Chili in a Cornbread Bowl, Chili Corn Chip Pie, fish tacos, skewers, flavored lemonades, kettle corn, fruit salad, churro loops, shortcakes, peach crumble, ice cream, beer & wine, and more! 

Ghost Town Alive!

On select days through September, visit the townsfolk of Calico for western adventures that will evolve after you unlock each mission. No two stories will be the same as each guest interaction changes the story-line. Do as many or as little as you want. They will have you running all over town, but you’ll love it because you’re the star of the show! This summer everyone in Calico has gold fever! You can read up on it in the Calico Gazette (their daily paper). It also has a schedule of all the activities in Ghost Town.

Hint: Take your group and stop into the Barber Shop to get your free mustaches. There are several styles to choose from (Pencil, Handlebar, Bushy and Walrus). It will have you laughing out loud.
