Where are we going today?

Do you know what America's first theme park is? No? We'll give you a hint - you're reading about it!

Knott's Berry Farm is the USA's first theme part, and was a pioneer in the amusement park industry. It also means it's been giving families great memories for a VERY long time (and they're still going!)

From the thrill seekers in the family, to those younger ones who love those family favorites, there will be something for you all.

The Jaguar is ready to pounce on you during the three minute journey through the mysterious temple, or you can ride through the Old West on the Pony Express!

Want to try one of the tallest thrill rides of it's kind in the world? You need to try the Supreme Scream then, that raises open-air riders 30 stories into the air before power-blasting them back to earth in three negative-gravity seconds at speeds topping 60 mph.

If you have those smaller thrill seekers in the family, there are plenty of family and kiddie rides perfect for them. They can explore the Iron Reef in a cool 4D interactive ride experience, or endure the wrath of the splash on the Timber Mountain Log Ride.

Knott's Berry Farm has those classic amusement park rides like the bumper cars and the ferris wheel,  and why not take in the entire park 180 feet in the air with Sky Cabin - the slow moving revolving platform giving you a 360 degree view of the park?

Don't forget that Knott's Berry Farm isn't just rides either! They have a host of live shows and family entertainment, from extreme stunts, musical performances and even can-can shows!

Family fun all round in this classic family favorite still giving family's great theme park memories every single day!

    Met up with my brother from Sacremento - and his family - 5 kids in total, with ages ranging from 2 - 12 - and they all said what a great time they had - and could they go back again next year - i guess that's good enough for me!
