Knott's Berry Farm
Knott's Berry Farm at Buena Park has a sleepy wild west theme, and indeed many of the buildings were moved from real ghost towns when the attraction was first built.
The Wild West Stunt Show was, ahem, not up to the high calibre of what we had seen at the Waterworld show at Universal City.....
After the park was taken over by Cedar Fair, L.P. in 1997, many extreme rollercoaster rides were built.
On the Boomerang rollercoaster, you get to do the ride forwards, then backwards! The Sky Cabin in the background provides a neat relaxing way to view the park and surrounding suburbs.
The Perilous Plunge was too scary looking for me to even contemplate trying.
Steve tried the Ghost Rider twice, but it was quite rattly the second time and shook him around. Definitely not a ride for me.....
I eventually plucked up the courage to try La Revolución, a giant arm that swung from side to side whilst spinning around.
The rollercoaster experiences over, we strolled around the rest of the park. Some children were getting drenched on the Rip Tide, a giant roller which dunked them in water, then tried to flick them off.
