Knott’s Ghost Town Alive!
*We attended as media for purposes of this post. All thoughts and opinions remain our own.*
It’s Summer Time and for my family, that means making the rounds to our favorite theme parks! Thanks to my friend, Erin at Horsing Around in L.A. and Knott’s Berry Farm, my family was able to go earlier than planned.
What’s new at Knott’s? My family was invited to find out. Ghost Town Alive turns Calico Ghost Town into a lively party! Be careful though, there are shady horse rustlers ready to lead you astray! Through September 4th, Ghost Town Alive! returns to Knott’s Berry Farm for another action-packed summer complete with bandits, cowboys, robberies, judges, a good ol’ western hoedown, and much more! You can visit the beloved town of Calico and experience an authentic western adventure by becoming a star in this summer’s story of the Wild West, where the power to unlock adventures is in the hands of every guest.
My children were excited to see the characters in Ghost Town however, there was a stop that is a must in our family. One of their teachers instilled the love of Knott’s Berry Farm into them in preschool and she often spends her days in the Fossil and Mineral Store as you walk in. The geodes are stunning and can be cut right in front of your eyes.
If you have never been in this store, make it a point. The staff is knowledgeable and LOVE teaching their love of rocks and minerals. We had learned about the Magic Rock today! What is the Magic Rock? This boulder has a high magnetic content in it which causes metal to stand on end! Check this out!
My son had recently attended a field trip to Ghost Town with his 4th grade class and I was really impressed by how much he learned! We had our own tour and history guide with us.
My family moseyed along down the street and discovered that the Wild West Stunt Show was about to start, Knott’s Berry Farm’s stunt shows are so much fun! The story-line keeps the audience interested while the stunts take your breath away. You never know what will happen next! The characters may fall from a balcony or get shot with a Gatlin Gun, you never know!
