Disclosure: We were given free tickets to spend the day at Knott’s Berry Farm and experience Ghost Town Alive! No other compensation was received. All opinions are our own.
Recently, my whole family spent a day at Knott’s Berry Farm. I tend to not take all four kids there at the same time, because they all have very different interests, and it’s really hard to do everything that everyone wants to do all in one day. So, I’ll usually take the two older ones, or the two younger ones, and then we kind of stick to a certain part of the park that day.
But last week was different. We took all four kids, and we had the most fun at Knott’s as a family that we’ve ever had. And I’m not exaggerating.
See that? That’s three of my kids happy and interacting with a Ghost Town character. Not only that, the three of them are getting along. This is unheard of.
Ghost Town Alive! is an interactive experience where Knott’s Berry Farm guests play an first-hand role in a story that unfolds around them in Ghost Town. Not only do you have an opportunity to take part in the story, but you have influence on how the story takes shape!
The story takes place a year after the notorious Mayfield Gang escaped the custody of Sheriff Wheeler. Word around town is the Mayfield’s have been spotted back in Calico and the townsfolk are in need of some help in capturing the bandits and keeping the town safe. Guests are brought into the story with specific tasks and activities and an essential role as an honorary citizen of Calico.
We were so immersed in the story that we didn’t even venture out of Ghost Town. Every hour on the hour there was something going on. An announcement, a town hall meeting, a hoedown, and more! And in between, we were delivering packages for the outpost, passing notes between the school house and town hall, and looking our best by visiting the barbershop for a fresh mustache.
We had so much fun that we didn’t even think about riding any rides. Of course you could definitely fit them into your visit, but my kids were having a blast keeping up with the Ghost Town adventure.
There are so many things going on around you during Ghost Town Alive! that you’re not going to want to leave until they kick you out of the park. Knott’s Berry Farm’s Ghost Town Alive! is hands-down the most fun and imaginative event we’ve been to yet!
