Knott's Berry Farm
Buena Park is home to the Knott's Berry Farm tradition of fried chicken dinners, thrill rides, a Western themed ghost town and several other entertainment venues such as Pirates Dinner Adventure and Medieval Times.
Located about 12 miles from the Pacific Ocean and beaches of Orange County, Buena Park itself runs along Beach Boulevard so you can drive directly to the beach from the city without getting lost.
The city's main draw is Knott's Berry Farm, a fantastic theme park that was launched to provide entertainment while people came to eat the famous fried chicken dinners and boysenberry pie served by the Knott's restaurant. Walter Knott began adding things for people to do while they waited in line to dine. He loved the Old West and first introduced troughs where guests could pan for gold. He collected authentic gold rush town buildings and artifacts, and began building and entire ghost town near the restaurant. The interest grew, and so did the rides. Eventually branding itself in an alliance with Charles Schulz characters Snoopy, Peanuts, Lucy and the gang, Camp Snoopy for kids was added as a section of the growing theme park.
