While Knott's ticket books at this point were the same size as Disneyland's, they have lettered tickets, a welcome message and Globe paper, there are some significant differences.
First you'll notice The welcome message is of course more "Old West" style. It encourages "Good American Fun" I like that message!
Knott's only had two lettered tickets in 1971. This is the "A" ticket or "Golden Nugget" ticket. This is the better of the two tickets, Knott's lettered ticket values were always the reverse of Disneyland. Isn't the prospector cute? Or is he scary?
The "B" Ticket or "Silver Dollar" Ticket is for all the "lesser" value attractions.
Inside of the back of the ticket book. Not just an attraction list like Disneyland, but you get a mini map, which is not really to scale, but you get the general locations.
Here is the guide map that shows the same price as the Ticket book. It's not dated anywhere that I can find, but it must be around 1971.
It opens up to a large map, so I scanned it in two parts. It's a weird map because the orientation is with North at the top (which is how most maps work) but the park looks sideways to me like this, the entrance should be at the bottom (like Disneyland maps). It is fun to look however!
And just because I like these old post cards of the "Gold Mine" here you go. Hey Knott's experts; What time period are these from and are they both the same place just different angles?
I enjoyed our little Sunday trip to Knott's, I hope you did as well.
Back to the park tomorrow.
