Knotts Berry Farm Current Deals and Specials

Quite frequently, Knott's offers a super discount for people who visit their website. These offers vary throughout the year. A very popular discount this spring has been the pick-a-date special, with tickets costing only $49 on many dates. (On dates that are expected to be busy, the price is a bit higher.) If you don't want to select a date to attend, you'll still get a good online discount---$64 for Any Day ticket at the time of this update.

Don't worry if that particular special isn't available when you plan to visit, because whenever one special ends, another generally begins within a few days. (Of course, as the various offers change, so do the ticket prices.) You may check out the current online cost and purchase them on the Daily Tickets page on the park's official website.


There will be several good Knott's promotions going on at local stores and restaurants this year. (1) Frequentlyl, Ralph's grocery stores sell Knott's Berry Farm discount tickets at the service desk in many locations. You may not see any signs or flyers by the service desk, so you'll probably have to ask the employee if they're currently carrying them. Discounts are not available for junior & senior tickets. (Other groceries, at times, sell Knott's tickets, including Albertson's and Food 4 Less at their service desks.)

(2) Also, Orange County and Los Angeles locations of fast food restaurants are a good place to look for paper coupons. Each year, there will be several restaurants that offer coupons...and these are available for only as long as supplies last (usually a month or less.) Subway, Burger King, Jack in the Box and Taco Bell have all offered coupon periods during the last several years---so keep your eyes open for them.

Hundreds of our readers over the past decade have purchased ARES Travel Co. tickets for Legoland and Disneyland without any problems.

You might want to check out their current prices to see if the ARES current offers are good ones for you. (There are generally several to choose from.)

During the military appreciation days, members of the armed services can get free tickets for themselves and one guest, plus discounts for up to 6 other members of your party. Be sure to look on the website for the Military Appreciation Days info again this coming November for complete details.

If you're a visitor to Southern California who would like to sample a number of theme parks & attractions in Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties, a multi-attraction discount card called the Go Los Angeles Card may be exactly the right discount for you.

SAN DIEGO GO CARD: If you'll be spending more time in San Diego than in Los Angeles, that's not a problem. Knott's Berry Farm is ALSO a featured attraction on the San Diego Go Card. What's the difference? It's the same deal: pay one price, then stuff in as many activities as you can for the same price. The activities are different, that's all. You can find out the complete details by going to the company's website, which is

The AAA Club admission price is a 20 to 30% discount off a full-price adult ticket (it varies from time to time.) You don't have to be a Southern California resident to use this discount, either. This discount program is valid even if you're visiting Knotts Berry Farm from out of the Southern California area.

AAA members must show their cards at the Knott's ticket booth; this special is not available when ordering print-at-home tickets from the Knott's website.

If you do your banking with a credit union, you're probably already reaping the benefits of good interest rates and fast, friendly service. However, there are still more perks for credit union members...and these perks often include theme park discount tickets. The exact price of the Knott's credit union discount tickets does vary depending on what credit union you belong to, but this year, the price is ranging from approximately $54-56 for an adult/teen ticket. Not a bad deal indeed! Be sure to check for Knott's Soak City discount tickets, as well, since some California credit unions offer these, too.

Knott's Berry Farm has a Facebook page and is active on Twitter. While you won't necessarily find a discount or contest for free tickets going on at the time you wish to visit the theme park, these are two places you might try. They may not be having a contest at the time you'd like to visit...but, then again, they MIGHT!

If you plan to visit Knott's several times during your vacation...or to return again next might wish to purchase their annual pass. You can choose from several types of season passes---Knott's theme park only; Knotts AND the Soak City water park; or Knott's Berry Farm AND all the other theme parks in the Cedar Fair chain! Additional details about the Knott's passes can be found in the section below.

Knotts & Cedar Fair Season Passes!

Picture: Supreme Scream thrill ride at Knotts Berry Farm theme park Knott's Berry Farm is owned by the Cedar Fair theme park company. Some season passes are good at Knott's Berry Farm ONLY...while other types of passes include some of Knott's "sister parks." Note: Knott's season passes are not annual, year-long passes. They expire at the end of the current calendar year. A true "annual pass" would last for 12 months from the time of purchase.

Here's a list of the Knott's/Cedar Fair season passes that you may buy:

  • Knott's Berry Farm Season Pass: The cheapest season pass you can buy, the "regular" Knott's pass, will admit you to Knott's Berry Farm all the rest of this year through December 31st. (It's NOT good at any of the Soak City water parks nor at any of Cedar Fair's other theme parks. However, if you don't like water parks and you aren't going to be traveling, this is the very best pass for you.)

  • The Knott's Gold Pass---This pass is valid at Knott's Berry Farm Theme Park and both of Southern California Knott's Soak City water parks (Buena Park and Palm Springs. Note: there is no longer a Knott's Soak City waterpark in San Diego; it has been purchased by SeaWorld, and is now called "Aquatica.") A nice feature for the Gold Pass is getting to receive a certain amount of "early ride time" during the busy summer season (usually 30 minutes.)

  • The Knott's/Cedar Fair Platinum Pass---This is Knott's Berry Farm's most expensive season pass...but it does include parking. Also, if you'll be doing some traveling this year, this pass could save you plenty of money because you will get FREE admission to the following list of Cedar Fair theme parks and water parks:

    • California's Great America (Santa Clara, CA)
    • Canada's Wonderland (Toronto, ON)
    • Carowinds (Charlotte, NC)
    • Cedar Point (Sandusky, OH)
    • Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom (Allentown, PA)
    • Kings Dominion (Richmond, VA)
    • Kings Island (Mason, OH)
    • Knott's Berry Farm (Buena Park, CA)
    • Gilroy Gardens (Gilroy, CA)
    • Michigan's Adventure & Wildwater Adventure (Muskegon, MI)
    • Valleyfair & Whitewater Country (Shakopee/greater Minneapolis-St Paul, MN)
    • Worlds of Fun (Kansas City, MO)

    Note: the Knott's Premium Pass does not include admission to the Knott's Scary Farm event. And also, unfortunately, the Platinum Pass never goes on sale. If you're a die-hard theme park fan who wants all the benefits the Platinum Pass brings you, then you'll have to just suck it up & pay the full price. (However, sometimes you can get a small discount by purchasing 4 or more Platinum Passes at the same time.) The Platinum Pass may be purchased at the ticket booths and online for the same price. You'll have to allow time during your first theme park visit for the "pass processing" procedures.

You may make your purchase once you reach the park, or you may buy your Fast Lane Pass online before you arrive. If you purchase your Fast Lane Pass online, then you will need to plan what date you'll visit the park ahead of time.

    NOTE: Since Knott's Berry Farm is a year-round theme park, there are many weekdays during the off-season when there is NOT a long line for most rides. But sometimes the waiting time for rides can get long...for example, during Spring Break, Summer Vacation and the extremely popular Christmas holiday season.
