Planning Your Visit
Be prepared for a fun, but long day at Knott’s Berry Farm on New Year’s Eve. The theme park has extended hours and is open from 10:00 am to 1:00 am. It is only about a 15 minute ride from the Anaheim Express Inn Maingate in Anaheim to Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park. If you start early and get tired, you are close enough to the hotel to come back and take a break. Then, head back and watch the Knott’s Sky Cabin rise over 200 feet. When the clock strikes midnight, shout “Happy New Year!” and watch the fireworks light up the sky.
