While Disneyland has ditched its annual passholder program (for now), Knott’s Berry Farm is offering passholders two weeks of exclusive access to mark the park’s reopening.
Rides and attractions at Knott’s haven’t operated since March 2020. On March 20, 2020, Knott’s had said it hoped to reopen in mid-May; that timeline ended up being off by a full year.
The park grounds have opened for a series of food festivals during the COVID-19 pandemic. Following the end of the Taste of Boysenberry Festival, Knott’s will fully reopen on May 6 for passholders. The grand reopening for the general public will follow on May 21.
“‘The Knott’s Family Reunion” looks to reunite family and friends in a safe and fun environment after a year-long closure due to COVID-19,” the park said in a press release.
Knott’s season passes start at $101 — $3 less than the lowest-priced, single-day Disneyland ticket — and will be good through May 5, 2022. Existing 2020 season passes will also be good through that date following the nearly 14-month shutdown.
The May 21 reopening will also kick off the park’s belated 100th anniversary celebration and the debut of the park’s new interactive dark ride, Knott’s Bear-y Tales: Return to the Fair.
Like other California parks, Knott’s will require guests to wear face masks, limit park capacity and enforce physical distancing. Guests will also have to make reservations in advance to enter the park, with reservations and new ticket sales starting on April 26.
