Sunday, Jan. 7 will be the the last day for Knott’s Berry Farm guests to ride Huff and Puff in the park’s Camp Snoopy section.

The self-propelled ride where kids use a pump to move themselves along the track opened with Camp Snoopy in 1983, when the Knott family still owned the park.

Huff and Puff’s removal is part of a larger overhaul of the area which will debut later this year, which includes the addition of a new Zamperla kiddie coaster. 

For its final day of operation, Knott’s will be giving away a limited number of what it called a “Huff and Puff Last Ride merit badge” at the front gate, while supplies last. The park said in a press release that other limited-edition badges will be handed out each month in 2024 ahead of the new Camp Snoopy’s opening.

A sculpture filled with Pixar characters will welcome you into Disneyland during the park’s Pixar Fest event later this year.

On Tuesday, Disney released concept art of the sculpture, which will be placed at the edge of Town Square leading into Main Street USA, a prime spot for photos.
