Jason isn't big on roller coasters, so the day was a disappointment in his eyes. There weren't huge crowds, but it was very hot, and the lines for the water rides were about three times as long as everything else.
Knott's is a great place, but for adults, it’s way overpriced, even with the $10 online discount, but it's the experience you pay for.
Check out their website at knotts.com. If you buy online, you can save $10 on adult tickets.

There was a funny Wild West stunt show that was fun for all ages. The Mystery Lodge was kind of a let down, but again, smaller children may enjoy it. The stagecoach ride is really neat, too.
The whole park has a completely different atmosphere than Disneyland. It's a lot less crowded, but summers are busy because summer camps bring large groups of children.
Smaller children will love spending time in the "camp snoopy" area which is themed with the beloved "Peanuts" characters such as Charlie Brown, Linus, and Snoopy.
As far as the surrounding areas of Knott's Berry Farm, there is an "admission free" area that includes mostly gift shops and the famous chicken dinner restaurant. On Sundays, it takes forever to get a table so there is also a "take out" option a few doors down. Don't forget to order "Boysenberry Juice" instead of a normal soda.

You'll begin in the waiting area, where the kids must take off their shoes to enter. Once the kids are all ready, an attendent lets them into the Bounce House one by one, and the playing begins. They get to bounce around for about 5 minutes, and you can watch through the clear, soft-but-thick plastic windows. When it's over, you'll help your children replace their shoes, and you're on your way. Parents can't go into the Bounce House, but at the Rocky Road Truckin' Company, the parents get chauffeured! The kids sit in the truck's cab and "drive," while the parents sit outside the cab and just enjoy the view. (How's THAT for a foreshadowing of "things to come!") Remember the Peanuts character, Woodstock? He's a little yellow bird who's Snoopy's friend. Well, he has his own ride at Camp Snoopy, too--called "Woodstock's Airmail." On this ride, the kids are lifted straight into the air, then dropped down suddenly, and then they get in a few smaller bounces before the ride is over. It's a miniature version of the adult ride "Supreme Scream" found in the Boardwalk section of the park.
So far, I've mentioned plenty of rides, but there are still more! There's the Charlie Brown Speedway, which offers tiny cars for your kids to drive along a tiny roadway. Then there's the Log Peeler, which is a mini-scrambler. The Huff and Puff is a good ride for active youngsters--they "kid-power" their own little mining cars by pushing and pumping a handle to make themselves go around on the track. There's the High Sierra Ferris Wheel, which--like many of Camp Snoopy's rides--is fun for the whole family, and not just the children. Plus, there's the walk-through play house, which features Peanuts-themed gadgets for the kids to explore within it. Live shows are performed several times a day at the Camp Snoopy Theater, featuring the Peanuts charactures, naturally.

A unique ride called "Joe Cool's Gr8 Sk8" (that's "great skate"), has the scenario that Snoopy has become a cool dude and now wears sunglasses and rides a skateboard! The ride itself is shaped like a giant skateboard, which rolls backwards and forewards as the platform underneath it raises and lowers. It's a kiddie favorite, and a fair sized line backs up for this slow-loading ride. Next to Joe Cool's Gr8 Sk8 are the Red Baron airplanes, which circle around a central hub while the riders raise and lower their planes via their individual controller. The Red Baron is one of only several rides in the kid's area that parent's can't ride alongside their children. Not far from these attractions is a little, man-made lake around which several activities happen. There's the Walter K. Steamboat, which makes a circle cruise of the lake. Then, there's the Grand Sierra Scenic Railroad, which choo-choo's its way around the lake's perimeter. There are also little remote-control boats which, for a small fee, you can pilot around on their own small lake.
The other ride in Wild Water Wilderness is the Wilderness Scrambler, an old-fashioned ride that is still fun, but doesn't draw a big crowd. That means that you can enjoy it without investing much of your time standing in line! (You'll see it in a photo below.)
The one non-ride attraction in Wild Water Wilderness is the Mystery Lodge, an attractively decorated building that hosts a multimedia Native American story-telling show. After the show, if you wish to enjoy more Native American culture, you can go to the "Indian Trails" themed area. It's a small area with no rides, but it does have a museum-quality exhibit of Native American dwellings---tipis, hogans, and Big Houses. There are periodic shows of Native American music and dancing as well. Another attractive exhibit at "Indian Trails" is a large totem pole; in fact, seeing the tall totem pole will lead you right into this area.
