  • [Pictures] Knott's Berry Farm 'general' (non-Haunt) photo tribute

    Being photos taken from just normal days at Knott's, something I love to do and a nice, refreshing alternative to the crowds and increasingly hectic atmosphere at Disneyland most times. A bit of the historical, quirky, and such, mainly focused on Ghost Town and it's offerings. So enjoy!


    Sad-Eyed Joe is still locked up for horse-thievin', but he'll be very glad to talk to you. Why, he might even know your name without asking!


    A few Knott's biscuits with boysenberry jam always hit the spot for me.


    A very well executed (bad puns ahoy!) and delightfully macabre Pepper's Ghost effect can be glimpsed inside the Undertaker's Office building (near the Birdcage Theater).




    A replica of a fireplace and accompanying items Walter Knott saw and was delighted by when visiting George Washington's home at Mount Vernon.


    Anyone for boysenberry pie?

            Great pics Regions. Brings back memories from when I was a lad, Ghost town, camp snoopy, Bear-y tales and the soap box racers were my favs.

              Love the pictures. Now that I have an annual pass I've specifically planned to take a winter weekday off to do exactly what you just did. Can't wait.

              Nice job colorizing the food items in the Thanksgiving scene display. It actually dates back before the 70's but has been moved/shifted around.

                  I get to visit Knott's during the day, but rarely at night. Tonight's trip to the Merry Farm was well worth it for all the Christmas lights around Ghost Town and the great boughs and wreaths in Fiesta Village and Boardwalk. The light show and music in Camp Snoopy was great too. Here's more than a few pics to share:















                  A little Fiesta Village decked out in its Feliz Navidad finest.







                  And by the way, the Calico Mine Ride is getting a rainbow lighting treatment. I don't know if this is something I've been missing out on for a while or an addition to the Christmas overlay throughout the park. It certainly draws the eye with its ever-changing colors.

                    Nice photos Regions and lynxwiler!

                    Makes me miss the park, and brings back some awesome memories. I need to stop in and get some biscuits and jam now!

                          Amazing pictures, the park is great for sightseeing, as there is so many hidden details!

                          Love the Catawampus!
                          The new Star Wars plot summery:

                          Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

                          Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

                          Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).

                              Great photos! Love the pictures of Ghost Town, the Calico Mine Train ride, and the refurbished log ride.

                                Thank you Spiff! Sadly, not been to the refurbed Log Ride yet (though quite eager to) - photos are of the plain-old 'original'/non-fancified version and were taken in 2011.

                                  The George Washington fireplace, a recreation of the original Walter saw when visiting Mount Vernon and wanted to recreate for the farm.


                                  Always have to buy a few of these when visiting.




                                  Long may the Catawampus moo.

                                    Nice! I love Knott's, regular or scary.
                                    I pledge allegiance to the Earth, one planet, many gods, and to the universe in which she spins.

                                        I always have to visit Boot Hill, and Hiram's heart still beats in his grave if you test it out...










                                        Inside Goldie's joint.








                                        The 'hidden Bigfoot/sasquatch' at the waterfalls by the waiting area for Mystery Lodge. See his arm? Head and torso sadly very obscured and hard to make out these days.






                                        A Chicken Dinner restaurant favorite scene - the small 'creek' and lush grotto of plantlife by the restrooms (also, what I call the 'bacon rocks' lining it).
