Fun for the Whole Family
No visit to Buena Park would be complete without a day – or two, or three – at Knott’s Berry Farm, a 65-hectare theme park set on a one-time berry farm. Make no mistake: Knott’s is designed with the entire family in mind, with rides that run the gamut from twisting, turning, heart-pounding roller coasters to bumper cars, carousels and log flumes. Camp Snoopy, a Peanuts Gang-themed area for children houses kid-friendly attractions, live shows and meet-and-greets with Snoopy. In the summer, drop into Knott’s Soak City water park with dozens of thrilling slides, relaxing cabanas and one of the world’s longest lazy rivers.
Most visitors don’t know that Buena Park also has a wide selection of popular restaurants including the award-winning Porto's Bakery & Cafe. The authentic Cuban restaurant serves mouth-watering pastries, flavorful sandwiches and unique coffee creations. Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant has been serving its world-famous fried chicken, buttermilk biscuits and boysenberry pie for more than 75 years. Other top-notch international eateries include Yoshiharu Ramen, Gaucho Grill Argentinian Steakhouse, SUP Noodle Bar, Miss Shabu Restaurant & Sake Bar, and Michelin Bib Gourmand-recipient Ramen & Tsukemen TAO.
Even dinner is entertaining in Buena Park with three interactive dinner shows. Climb aboard an 18th century ship and join a swashbuckling crew at Pirates Dinner Adventure, a show with sword fighting, duels and aerial stunts. Feast like royalty at Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament featuring a joust competition, complete with horses and clashing knights. For adults, there’s Beach Boulevard Club, a dueling piano bar with vintage Hollywood allure.
Buena Park has served as the backdrop for several movies and television shows, including “National Treasure,” “The Cable Guy” and “Master Chef” with Gordon Ramsay.
In 1932 on their farm in Buena Park, Walter Knott and Rudolph Boysen created the boysenberry – a cross between a raspberry, loganberry and blackberry.
Celebrity sighting alert: Katy Perry and Gwen Stefani, among many others, have been spotted around town.
