“Mom, when can we go to Knotts?”

Knotts Berry Farm

I hear that often around my house. Over the years, my kids have come to love our trips to Knotts Berry Farm. It seems like there is always something new to enjoy or something that we haven’t discovered in previous trips.

And now my older girls are starting to take interest in the “Big Rides.” I can’t wait to ride my all time favorites, for sure. But there’s even more going on this year!

That’s why I’m super excited to take them to ride on the new ride Voyage to the Iron Reef.

This is what we have to look forward to:

The new interactive 4-D attraction called Voyage to the Iron Reef, will take you on an adventure aboard submarine-inspired vehicles through enchanting underwater forests, disorienting ocean current tunnels, mysterious mechanical wreckage, and high definition 3D animation. Guests who have what it takes to become brave deep sea navigators embark on an adventure into the Iron Reef that combines the fun of a theme park ride with the interactivity of high tech video games. The submarines navigate 11 colossal scenes featuring hundreds of media-based creatures and other special effects.
