I have two Knott’s Berry Farm tickets (one day – not season passes) to give away! Skip to the bottom if you don’t want to walk down memory lane with me.
My husband is not going to like that I posted this photo. My husband and I have known each other since junior high school. We were best friends through most of high school, which is when this photo was taken, and began dating after college. After college is also when my husband finally grew taller than me. He doesn’t enjoy the early photos of us that remind him of this fact. But I LOVE this photo. My sister took this photo of us outside of the main gate (11th grade I think?), just feet from where I checked in for one of the last Knott’s events I attended. This picture sits on a shelf by my sink and I see it every day. It reminds me of all the fun I and we’ve had at Knott’s Berry Farm with our friends and family over the years:
-I can smell of the Berry Tales Ride, in all it’s boysenberry goodness, like it was yesterday.
-As a kid, I saw Michael Damian (what? You don’t remember him?) sing his hit Rock On in the Charles M. Schulz Theater with some other talented musical acts (I’m pretty sure this group was there too). I think this could be considered my very first concert now that I look back on it. Be jealous.
-In high school, I remember feeling pretty grown up being dropped off at the front gate and having hours and hours to do whatever we wanted.
-I remember one time when some knucklehead we were with started acting really stupid on the Mine Ride saying, “hit me, hit me” over and over to anyone who would listen. So my girl friend finally clocked him.
-Soapbox racers was my favorite ride. RIP.
-I remember having my then boyfriend hold my money for me (you never brought a purse to Knott’s) while at the park and forgetting to get it back from him at the end of the night. Then he bought me my birthday present with it. The Blood Sugar Sex Magik cassette tape. While the music was good, we were not together long.
-The only time I was ever grounded (for real, I was a real rule follower…) was because my mom had to go around the block when she came to pick us up from Knott’s. You are NOT late with my mom. Even now I think she would ground me if I was late…
-After college 3 girlfriends and I went to Knott’s for some summer fun. It was a perfect night of classic girl time, you know, riding roller coasters.
And I really want to go back for another adults only trip. It is kind of torture to go with the kids and not be able to ride the coasters…and summer is the perfect time to do it. Who’s in?
But your family needs some summer fun too. And the Knott’s Season Pass is such a great deal! Adults are $69.99 and seniors (62+) and kids (3-11) are $64.99. They also offer a payment plan! There are so many different ways to enjoy the park! And the best part? There are no black out dates! Season pass holders also get special perks like discounts on food (I’m dying to try Spurs Chop House!) and merchandise as well as Bring-A-Friend discount days and collector’s pins.
To purchase your Season Pass go here!
And be sure to follow Knott’s for park info and tag them with all the Knott’s family fun you are having!
And now for the giveaway…
I have two adult one-day park passes for one person to win. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post with your favorite Knott’s memory or, if you haven’t been yet, tell me who you want to take with you to make Knott’s memories. Be sure to leave your email address so I can contact you if you win. One entry per person, please. It would also be cool for you to “like” Knott’s on Facebook but since they are providing your family with easy summer fun, I wanted to keep this contest easy too. I’ll choose one winner, randomly. You have until midnight, Sunday, June 10, 2012 to leave your comment and I will announce the winner on Monday, June 11, 2012.
*Knott’s Berry Farm provided the tickets for this giveaway. Thank you, Knott’s! I heart you!
