Bonus Sunday

Welcome to Bonus Sunday. Today's post is for Knott's Berry Farm Fans (I know there are at least two of you out there!). Undated but from somewhere around 1983 since Camp Snoopy seems to be "brand new". Knott's was certainly at its peak here, with all the old stuff still in place and plenty of cool new attractions.

Is that Delta Burke on the the front cover??

This one is for Tokyo Magic!

This reminds me of Disneyland's 8 x 10 Polaroid promotion from 1980! (link).

Neat souvenir guide...! I have to admit that when the Peanuts characters were introduced at Knott's, it felt like the park had undergone a major change, one that made the place feel more like a generic amusement park. If you know what I mean!

I remember feeling the same way the Major did yet, when I took my son, he loved Camp Snoopy so that changed my mind. This was an exciting time for Knott's and I enjoyed going there very much.

I was a big fan of Knotts, but this occurred in the time I couldn't visit. None of the features look familiar except the old stuff.

When we went with the kids 7-8 years after this, I remember how disoriented I was and we didn't do any of the fancy thrill rides, because our toddlers were too small.

Fun to see the pic's tho, thank you for scanning this, lots of work to be sure.

The best way to date this is by the video games in the arcade picture. Punch-Out!! and Space Ace both came out in early 1984, so that likely puts the guide as something that came out in late '84 or probably 1985.
