What’s New at Knott’s Berry Farm – Come with Me Under the Sea!
You all know I LOVE me some San Diego, but if there is one thing I miss about home it is the clear, warm Florida waters! Being under the ocean is one of my favorite things in the world, but sometimes I just don’t want to get into a wetsuit or get on a plane somewhere each time I want to take a dip in a sea where I can actually SEE. Well you may have heard the buzz that now there’s new ride by Knotts Berry Farm, Voyage to the Iron Reef ™ and I won’t even need a towel! Or a hairdryer. And that’s good. Really good.
I am really excited that in a couple of weeks the hubs and I get to experience this spectacular new interactive 4-D ride that surfaced (pun totally intended) at Knott’s Berry Farm on May 15th. Whether it’s just the two of you up for some competition or the entire family wants in on the action, you can work together to save Knott’s from mysterious creatures emerging from the seas beneath the Boardwalk in a cutting edge media-based battle. Through enchanting underwater forests, disorienting ocean current tunnels, and mysterious mechanical wreckage, high definition animation surrounds guests at every turn.
As brave deep sea navigators (not a far departure from what the hubs did for a living /wink), you’ll climb aboard submarine-inspired ride vehicles and embark on an adventure into the Iron Reef that combines the fun of a theme park ride with the interactivity of high-tech video games. The submarines navigate eleven colossal scenes on giant screens – their network cables are long enough to wrap around the Hollywood sign 85 times! Featuring hundreds of media-based creatures and other special effects, the interactive voyage reacts to the actions and accuracy of the onboard guests. Players with the highest scores enter the Iron Reef’s Hall of Fame. Look for my name haha! You can bet I’ll be on the lookout for those hidden medallions and that Roaring 20’s sign rumored to hold iconic treasures from Knott’s Berry Farm’s past. Not that I’m competitive or anything…I’m also obsessed with puffer and blow fish and will be chasing this one. I’ve always wanted to one, and to name it Brutus. I don’t think anyone will notice if he’s gone, right?
I have to give you a, “Wait, but that’s not all!” Because, well, Knotts Berry Farm Voyage to the Iron Reef is not all that’s happening at Knott’s this summer. From Blockbuster Beagle!…on ice, featuring Snoopy and the Peanuts gang to sipping a sarsaparilla while the gals do the cancan at the Calico Saloon and even high-flying acrobatics that will keep you ooohing and ahhing at the Vertical Impact Geared Up Show, there is something for everyone at Knott’s this summer!
Be on the lookout for us to share our experience, we’ll use the hashtags #KnottsIronReef and #NewAtKnotts – and be sure to visit knotts.com and connect with them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Can’t wait! Can you tell I’m just a little excited?
