Knott’s Berry Farm reopens after 13-month coronavirus closure

The roaring whoosh of the Silver Bullet coaster, the howling shrieks on the Supreme Scream drop tower and the soaking splashes of the Calico River Rapids water ride finally returned to Knott’s Berry Farm after a 13-month coronavirus closure.

The Buena Park theme park reopened with rides and attractions to season passholders on Thursday, May 6 after a 418-day closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic that began in March 2020. The park hosted a series of food festivals without rides during the pandemic closure.
