Knott’s Berry Farm
Knott’s Berry Farm is a 160-acre theme park in Buena Park, California, owned by Cedar Fair Entertainment Company. Since the theme park’s acquisition by Cedar Fair, the park’s annual attendance has steadily increased. The 2013 Global Attractions Attendance Report states Knott’s Berry Farm is the 13th most visited theme park in North America. The theme park has approximately 10,000 seasonal/full-time employees. The park features 40 rides including roller coasters, family rides, children’s rides, water rides, and historical rides, with plans to expand in the future. The park is accessible by public transportation. The theme park sits on the site of a former berry farm established by Walter Knott, Cordelia Knott, and their family. Beginning around 1920, the Knott family sold berries, berry preserves, and pies from a roadside stand along State Route 39. In 1934, the Knotts began selling fried chicken dinners in a tea room on the property, and the Knotts built several shops and other attractions to entertain visitors. It’s from these humble beginnings that the park has grown into one of Southern California’s favorite attractions.
