Perspective On Knott’s Berry Farm

By Derrick Pedranti

Derrick Pedranti and Amusement Parks - Knotts Berry Farm

Knott’s Berry Farm originally started as a berry farm and in 1920 it became a tourist attraction. Originally they offered berries, berry preserves and pies. Later they built out a Ghost Town and added rides. Today it is a well-established theme park with elaborate rides and attractions. Knott’s is one of Derrick Pedranti’s favorite amusement parks.

The experience is like a journey back in time to the Old West. As a boy I can remember panning for gold and visiting the old western themed shops. Rock candy was a favorite of mine. And as kids our favorite ride was the Corkscrew which was the first ride to perform two complete loops.

Every year in the fall, Knott’s has it’s Halloween Haunt. At this time throughout the park, several rides are decorated in the scary Halloween theme and hundreds of employees dress up as monsters who hide and try and scare you. Believe me, you will be scared.

Knott’s Berry Farm is a great amusement part in Southern California. Please check it out when you’re in the Southern California area. It is a great experience you can share with the whole family.

Thank you,
