Knott’s Berry Farm has extended a sale on season passes, selling them for $59.99. A regular-price adult ticket to the park sells for $56.99.
“They’ve been selling at an incredible rate,” Knott’s spokeswoman Jennifer Blazey said. “It’s up 25 percent from last year, and we still have two weeks before Easter break, which is when we sold a majority of them last year.”
Pass prices are the same for children and seniors. The passes are good for unlimited admission until Dec. 31. A Gold Pass — which includes admission to Knott’s Soak City parks in Buena Park, Palm Springs, and Chula Vista — for $84.99. There are no blackout dates. To buy a Knott’s pass online, click here.
Disneyland Resort season passes cost $184 to $459 per person, depending on the number of blackout dates the card is subject to.
The Knott’s pass sale ends May 1.
“We’re really encouraged. We’re trying to create year-round activity,” Blazey said, and bring back visitors with seasonal special events like Snoopy’s Spring Training and the upcoming Spring Fair. “We want people to realize it’s a really good investment.”
The park has added more turnstiles that accept the season pass. But will its popularity lead to congestion inside the park?
Blazey said park managers monitor crowds to prevent that, and they’ll be watching closely as the springtime crowds grow.
“I was just out in the park,” Blazey said on Monday afternoon. “This is a busy week. People are on spring break, and I didn’t see a lot of lines for the rides.”
