Christmas is just around the corner and that means it's about time to start thinking about New Year's Eve. Growing up, I can remember trying so hard to stay up until midnight only to fall asleep. A few years, I made it to twelve and loved banging on pots and pans for all the world to hear. Last year, we had a fun family night in the middle of Luke's chemotherapy treatments. We were discharged just in time to be home for the new year and unfortunately had to return on New Year's Day.
This year, we are so excited to be visiting Knott's Berry Farm on New Year's Eve! Our favorite California theme park has so much going on at the park to help guests usher in a festive 2016.
Knott's will be open from 10:00am to 1:00am on New Year's Eve. So if staying till the very last minute the park is open is your thing, you will have plenty of time to spend at the park.
Fireworks show and One of a Kind Countdown
As the final moments of 2015 countdown, look skyward towards the signature "K" tower. The Knott’s Sky Cabin will rise to the top of the “K” tower with special lighting effects on the countdown to twelve o'clock. When the cabin reaches the top of the famous "K" tower, the skies above Knott’s Berry Farm will ignite with a spectacular fireworks show! The New Year’s Eve Celebration is included with regular daytime admission.
