Knott's Berry Farm Update: End of Summer Edition

Knott's Berry Farm, Buena Park, CA

Cheers, folks!   Now that Labor Day has come and gone, we're moving into the fall season, which means Scary Farm and the spookiest and best time of the year.  Yesterday, I stopped by the Farm to check out this year's finale of Ghost Town Alive!, but I also took a quick jaunt around the park to look at a few things that have happened in the past month or so.  We'll be back at Knott's later this week, but for now...

Boardwalk BBQ

Last month, the Boardwalk BBQ finally opened, after this year's early winter rains put it into a construction schedule hole.  The design is whimsically '50s kitsch, with a colorful facade and stylized aesthetic.  The interiors are pretty utilitarian, and the dining is all outdoors under a covered area across from Xcelerator (which is currently under refurbishment).  All in all, it's a nice offering for the park, but nothing spectacular.

Calico Stage

Over by Calico Square, they've started construction on the stage for The Hanging show that will play throughout Knott's Scary Farm.  This year's Hanging is called "The Hanging: Fake Noose."  Will they actually get politically bold?  We'll see.  Hopefully, the show is more tightly organized than last year's wandering journey of a show.

The Log Ride

As was reported from the Knott's Scary Farm Announcement Event, this fall, The Log Ride will receive a Halloween overlay that will function day and night, as a Halloween Hootenanny takes over this classic attraction.  The ride will be kid friendly, though there will be talent at night, and it looks like an adorable overlay for the season!

Hangtime Construction

Finally, lets take a quick look at construction on Hangtime, coming to the park next year.  The ride is still currently in the grading phase, which means it's all just a bunch of dirt.  But once steel goes up, things should progress relatively quickly.

And that's it, folks! We'll be back with a recap of this season's Ghost Town Alive (check out our review of the event from earlier this year to bide the time), and some other goodies. 

Have a great truncated week, and be good peoples.

Moo bah!!
