Get there early. Find the show schedule for the day at Knott's.com (I am in the Christ Cathedral parking lot getting ready for Midnight Mass.).

Get your NYE stuff near the Ghost rider exit.

The Fireworks are shot off in the Western Parking Lot behind Coast Rider and nearby Flat Rides. If you want a good view of the fireworks get to that area early.

Have fun.... Happy Holidays.

I think we are totally going to NYE at Knotts this year.

Last year we where at Six Flags Discovery kingdom where every coaster was closed and the place closed at 8pm. The place was packed because there was nothing to do.

We are at Knotts. Just saw Snoopy on Ice. Loved it. The crowds are a typical Saturday during the summer. Ghostrider 120min and silver bullet 35min. Log ride 75min and mine train 15min. We are here for shows and shopping booths. We will go see Christmas Carol after we eat. We probably won't be here tonight.

Both the Gold Trails Hotel and The Emporium at the California Marketplace have most Christmas Items at 50% Off. No other Discounts Apply, certain items are exempt. Please check with the Park's Associates for full details.

Picked up a few items Saturday Night while visiting Knott's Merry Farm.

Headed to Knott's with Lisa around 6 PM, and will try and last until 1 AM.

Hangtime and Silver Bullet on the list (I qualify for the ADA Pass and return times). Did Ghostie at night this weekend, along with Krazy Kirk.

A couple of meals and some shows.

Happy New Year everyone.

We got to see Marley's Wings which was a cute show. Had dinner, bought a Dole whip and some miscellaneous stuff from the holiday booths. We didn't do any rides. Had a great time. Off to other parties tonight.

My son is setting up for a party at Club 33 tonight. It is going to be a long night for him.

At the Ice Show. Parked at the LA Palma/North Lot. Have my ECV. Leaving the Short Term/ADA Lot is a big mess. Crowds are not too bad, but still packed.

Dinner and Chipper Lowell next.
