Knott’s Berry Farm Update – April 24th 2016

20160424_133616 (Medium)After a very large update last week, this week brings us an update that’s a bit easier to chew on. The park was busy as ever this weekend, which, of course, meant that lines were long. Unfortunately, two of the park’s signature attractions are down for maintenance/refurbishments, which doesn’t bode well for the crowds at other popular attractions. However, it’s always good to have work being done, making the park a more enjoyable place! Let’s get started, and check out this week’s progress at Knott’s Berry Farm!
