Knott’s ROCKS Summer 2014!
Knott’s rocks Summer 2014 with renovations to Camp Snoopy, the Calico Mine Co. Ride, and the Knott’s Hotel, PLUS they’ve added some new family entertainment! I’ve had the pleasure of seeing the updates first-hand on recent media trips to the Resort, and think all of the renovations and new shows are great! Here are some details of what to expect on a trip to Knott’s during Summer 2014.
Camp Snoopy Celebrates the big 3-0!
Camp Snoopy celebrates 30 years at Knott’s! This area is one of our favorites, with the tall trees, beautiful stream, and fun rides for the little ones. The renovations to this area compliment that which we already love about Camp Snoopy. This area has three new rides, Linus Launcher, Charlie Brown’s Kite Flyer, and Pig Pen’s Mud Buggies, all of which look really fun!
Camp Snoopy has a brand new, super neat Peanuts® Meet and Greet area. The individual character sections are really cute, and the waiting area is shaded. It’s a great addition to to Camp Snoopy!
Also added to Camp Snoopy is a shaded rest area, with a small play area as well. It’s a great place to sit and have a snack while overlooking Camp Snoopy. Here you’ll also find a large rock with Charlie Brown and Snoopy carved into it. So cute!
The Camp Snoopy Theatre has an all-new show for Summer 2014, Happy Campers! The show has some of your favorite Peanuts® characters, including Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Sally, and Linus, singing and dancing in an upbeat performance. The show happens at select times each day, so be sure to check the Entertainment and Show Guide (available as you enter the Park) to fit it in your visit.
Here’s a super cute video showcasing the new, fresh, Camp Snoopy. I love that they show the three new rides. Chloe Noelle, the “KidCaster”, did a great job!
Rockin’ New Ice Skating Show, Snoopy Unleashed!
Snoopy Unleashed, an all-new ice skating show is being performed in the Charles M. Schulz Theatre, located in the Boardwalk are of Knott’s. The skating is top notch, the costumes and set are great, and the music is upbeat and fun. It’s a great place to sit and cool off on a hot summer day. Just like the Happy Campers show, Snoopy Unleashed happens at select times, so check the schedule in advance to make sure you have the opportunity to see it. There are no performances of this show on Wednesdays, and it is set to run 6/14-8/24/14.
Updates To The Calico Mine Co. Ride
The Calico Mine Ride, located in the Ghost Town area of Knott’s, has been fully renovated is now reopened! It’s the same ride that park guests have loved since 1960, with new, even more realistic animatronic characters, different lighting and some other neat visual features. The renovations were made by Garner Holt Productions, the same company that renovated the Knott’s Log Ride in 2013. If you’ve never been, now would be a great time to check it out!
Boom Town Show On The Calico Stage
A new high-energy acrobatic and juggling show called Boom Town is scheduled to be performed on the Calico Stage, in Ghost Town from 6/14-8/24/14. It’s a great one to check out before or after riding the Calico Mine Ride. As with the other shows, be sure to check the performance times in advance. This show does not run on Mondays or Tuesdays.
Lots of Renovations To The Knott’s Hotel
The Knott’s Hotel has recently had lots of renovations as well. Upgrades have been made to the lobby, front desk, meeting and event spaces, and more. I’d never seen the inside of the hotel prior to the recent work, but love how it presently looks. The interior is decorated in neutral tones with pops of color, and has a warm, comforting feel.
Summer Contest, Social Media Sharing and More
Aside from the recently renovated areas, Knott’s rocks Summer 2014 with all the usual family fun, including tons of rides, year-round shows like the Wild West Stunt Show, Mystery Lodge, and the Native American Dancer to name a few. If you’re looking for a Splashing Good Time, Knott’s Soak City, their awesome Water Park, is located just across the street from the Amusement Park.
If you enjoy social media like we do, follow and use the hashtag #KnottsSummer. You can also have some fun participating in the Knott’s Best of Summer Contest, with a chance to win a return trip the theme park. Details can be found HERE.
