General info: 

Located in Buena Park, Knott’s Berry Farm is America’s 1st Theme Park. It started as a farm selling the homemade preserves of one Mrs. Cordelia Knott. Although Ma Knott and her family are long gone, her jams are still on sale. Besides the jams, is is the extreme roller coasters, Camp Snoopy, family attractions and an old ghost town that bring visitors from all over for hours of fun.

Parts of Knott's Berry Farm aim to portray an idealized, kinder America than you might find at, for example, Universal Studios. Some charming remnants of the park's early years remain: most notably in the Ghost Town section, which contains a number of buildings that have been transplanted from old mining towns. Ultimately, though, the thrill-seekers win out over the sentimentalists thanks to a number of water rides, the stomach-churning Xcelerator and Montezooma's Revenge attractions, and two new rollercoasters: the Sierra Sidewinder and the Pony Express.
