Knotts Berry Farm Discount Tickets - Here's How to Get Them!

Looking for Knotts Berry Farm discount tickets?

I’m feeling in a math frame of mind (something that rarely happens, but humor me). Try this equation:

Family fun + theme parks = $$$

Not to your liking? How about this sum?

Family fun + theme parks = $

Better? In case I’ve totally lost you, let me explain.

Southern California is bursting with major theme parks to meet every interest, including Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, Soak City, and Legoland. So if visiting any of these parks is your formula for fun, why not get your theme park thrill for less?

Knotts has 9 coasters and 5 thrill rides!

Here’s how...

Pinning down the regular single-day admission price is tough because they always seem to have some deal going on, but it's generally at least $46.99 per adult (ages 12-61).

Let's just say that you frequently get better Knotts Berry Farm discount tickets if you order ahead of time online at the Knotts website!

While (as of January) they currently have no special deals posted on their website, they offered several deals last year which they'll probably resurrect at some point.

As with their main park, they frequently offer deals throughout the year. Although no deals are currently posted as of January 2012, here's what you might find later in the year (based on last year's deals):

If you love to go again and again, or if you want to try two or more of the three Soak City water parks, get a season pass.

Season Passes - Which One is Best for You?


If you're a frequent visitor and you want Knotts Berry Farm discount tickets, it definitely makes sense to buy a season pass. But which season pass to buy is a little complicated.

Knott’s Berry Farm Regular Season Pass
Adults (12+) are $64.99
Juniors/Seniors (ages 3-11 and 62+) are $64.99

Want to visit one or more of Knott's three Soak City water park too? Consider getting the Gold Season Pass.

Knott’s Berry Farm Gold Season Pass
Adults (12+) are $89.99
Juniors/Seniors (ages 3-11 and 62+) are $89.99

But what about parking?

Neither the Regular nor the Gold season passes include free parking (which is $14 per day), so depending on how many times you plan to visit, it may make sense to jump to the Platinum pass.

Knott’s Berry Farm Platinum Season Pass
Adults (12+) are $165
Juniors/Seniors (ages 3-11 and 62+) are $97

Besides free parking, you'll get unlimited admission to all Cedar Fair amusement or water parks all year!

Corporate Partners Program Deals

Many major companies are part of Knott's Corporate Partners Program, which gives employees access to deeper Knotts Berry Farm discount tickets than you can get online.

To get these Knotts Berry Farm discount tickets, you'll need to get coupons available through your Human Resources department. Here's some of the coupons you may find.

Winter Savings Deal (1/3 – 3/31)
Adults (12+) are $28.50
Juniors/Seniors (ages 3-11 and 62+) are $22.99

Spring Break Deal (4/1-6/13)

Meal Deals & Military Deals


If you want to save on food too, consider this deal:

All-you-can-eat Backyard BBQ + Admission (6/10-9/5)
Adults (12+) are $42.99
Juniors/Seniors (ages 3-11 and 62+) are $31.99

Is it worth it? Consider this: I was at the park late spring and used a Corporate Partners Program coupon to get admission for about $34. We had lunch at the park's Johnny Rockets diner, where I ordered a HUGE burger for about $7.50, not including tax or tip. It was great, but didn't include drinks, french fries, etc. Just the burger.

In contrast, the backyard BBQ deal would have been about the same price as my discount admission deal and one burger. But it would include Mrs. Knott's Famous Fried Chicken, BBQ Pork Ribs, hamburgers, hot dogs, chili, a variety of salads, corn, watermelon, and unlimited soft drinks.

You decide.
