Knott's Berry Farm Season Pass: Everything You Need to Know

A Season Pass is something that is frequently mentioned at Knott's Berry Farm, but what is it?

In this page, we'll explain what a Knott's Berry Farm Season Pass is, the differences between the various season passes, what perks they offer, how you can pay for it, and even the upgrades that you can make.

    What is a Knott's Berry Farm Season Pass?

    A Knott's Season Pass allows a pass holder to visit the park an unlimited number of times throughout the 'season' in a year, on all days that are open to the public.

    Some of the benefits that this Season Pass offers include:

    • Unlimited visits
    • Bring a Friend Discount Tickets
    • Unlimited visits at Soak City (Gold & Platinum Pass)
    • Discounts on food & merchandise

    Knott's Season Passes have no blockout dates, however your pass does not provide you access to special events such as Knott's Scary Farm.

    You'll have to purchase a separate Knott's Scary Farm ticket to gain entrance to this event.

    How Long Does a Season Pass Last?

    It's important to note that a Season Pass is different from an Annual pass, as typically Season Passes last until December 31st of the year that you purchased the pass.

    If you purchased a Season Pass on April of 2024, your Season Pass will be valid through December of the same year, which in this case is 2024.

    Types of Passes & Benefits

    There are three types of Season Passes at Knott's Berry Farm, and they are the Season, Gold and Platinum passes.

    Pass Differences

    The main difference is that the Platinum Pass allows you access to ALL Cedar Fair parks for the season (and water parks), while the Gold & Season Pass only allow you access to Knott's Berry Farm.

    Season Pass

    A Season Pass is the cheaper of the three options, and is about half the price of the Platinum Pass.

    The main perk that a Gold Pass offers that a Season Pass doesn't is unlimited access to Knott's Soak City (water park).

    If you plan on visiting the water park 2 or less times, you can simply purchase the Soak City ticket separately.
