Is Knott’s Merry Farm Worth It?

Visiting Knott’s Merry Farm is totally worth it! The holiday SNOOPY ice skating show alone is amazing, I don’t mind going to Knott’s during the holidays just for it, it really puts you in the holiday mood. The Snow and Glow experience is beautiful as well even if you know it’s not real snow. Plus, you can go on all the rides and there is a good amount of rides at Knott’s for both the kids and the thrill seekers plus you get to enjoy so many shows.

Only parking, food, and carnival games are extra at Knott’s Merry Farm.
