Knott’s Berry Farm
is proud to re-open some favorite and famous attractions after a bit of a make-over.

A much loved attraction at the park is the ‘Calico Mine Ride’ which just re-opened June 14, after a complete refurbishing and some modern embellishment.  The original ride opened in 1960 as the first of its kind ‘dark ride’ to give riders the experience of traveling through a gold mine.  Designers worked tirelessly to make the ride authentic, visiting dozens of actual mines and visiting with the miners who bravely made their living in the dangerous mining world.  The full restoration of the ride began in January and includes the addition of animatronic figures and special effects.

Camp Snoopy, the Knott’s Berry Farmpark’s ‘kids’ zone’ is celebrating 30 years at Knott’s Berry Farm.  You’ll find a fresh new look and three new family friendly rides.  Parents will love that they can ride with their…

Another Magical Anaheim Summer: Almost 30 Attractions to Visit this Tourist Season

Adventures in Anaheim

Anaheim is a popular tourist destination, and with attractions like Disneyland, K1 Speed Anaheim, Knott’s Berry Farm and more, it is very easy to see why.

With summer quickly approaching, it is time to start making some plans. Fortunately, Anaheim has plenty of choices, which means that everyone can keep busy this summer in Southern California. 

1. Disney California Adventure Park. This lesser known park is part of the Disneyland family, but it is distinctly designed to stand on its own. The rides tend to be more accessible, and there are more options for younger children. Guests particularly rave about Cars Land and Tower of Terror.

2. Downtown Disney. This upscale district features shopping, dining and live entertainment. Visitors love the range of shopping venues, which includes the Lego Store and ESPN Zone. Better still, parking is free, making it easy to come back more than once.

Crazy Horse Memorial & The Battle of Little Big Horn

In South Dakota’s Black Hills, not far from Mount Rushmore, lies Crazy Horse Memorial. This famous sculpture was started in 1948, and is still incomplete. However, if it is ever completed, it may earn the title of the world’s largest sculpture, measuring 641 feet long and over 560 feet high!

Battle of Little Big Horn
Little Bighorn Little Bighorn

Who was Crazy Horse? He was a warrior of the Oglala Lakota tribe, and helped Native American triumph in the Battle of Little Big Horn, arguably the biggest and most important Native American victory over the US in the Great Sioux War of 1876. Our YMR7 Tour makes stops not only at the Crazy Horse Monument, but at the site of Battle of Little Big Horn, also known as Custer’s Last Stand. You can visit the site to learn about Crazy Horse and this famous battle against the United States’ 7th Cavalry.

Today the Little Big Horn Battlefield memorializes the site where this battle, one of the most well-known in America’s history, took place.

Bryce Canyon, Utah

BURNBLOG

 Bryce Canyon National Park is actually less of a canyon than it is a series of natural amphitheaters sunk into pink cliffs and filled with delicate red rock “hoodoos.” Millions of years of wind, water, and geologic forces have shaped and etched the surreal landscape. The most brilliant hues of the park comes alive with the rising and setting of the sun. Bryce is an unforgettable experience. Located 24 miles southeast of the town of Panguitch, the park is open all year-round and the area is popular with the cross-country skiing and snowshoeing crowd in the winter months. Summertime offers myriad walking and hiking trails along the rim and toward the bottom of the canyon. Many visitors think it’s even better seen from horseback. The 37-mile scenic drive will also get you to key overlooks and vistas, such as Sunrise, Sunset, Rainbow, Yovimpa, and Inspiration Points. The visitor center is…
