Knott’s Berry Farm Ride Videos

In 2001 I went to Knott’s Berry Farm with my video camera, and filmed a few of the rides there. My intention was to put the videos on the internet, because back then there were plenty of ride-throughs of Disneyland rides available, but nothing from Knott’s Berry Farm.

So, here I am, seven years later, finally putting them online. Better late than never, eh? You can’t blame me, though. Back in 2001 there wasn’t even YouTube. Of course, the thing about waiting so long is that now most of these videos are available on YouTube, from dozens of other people. I think the first one is an exclusive, though. I couldn’t find any other video of the Kingdom of the Dinosaurs ride, which closed in 2004.

    nice videos — RIP kingdom of the dinosaurs (2004) it is missed, thanks for a rare video recording of the whole ride — you know they haven’t even done anything to it (the building) last time I was there, the arcade is still below, but that’s it. It was a sad day when cedar fair took over finally from the knotts family.

    Please don’t ever delete this video. The Kingdom of the Dinosaurs was one of my favorites growing up. My parents moved us out of Cali in 2001 and I never made it back after that to Knotts. It broke my heart when the family sold the park to that rat bastard company out of Ohio or wherever the hell they came from. I knew what was going to happen to the park and sure enough, it has lost most of what made it so special back in the day. I was planning on taking my babydoll on a much needed vacation to Cali and Knotts was high on the list, specifically TKOTD, but now I am hesitant to see what KBF has become, just another money making scheme run by corporate ghosts =(
