LAST UPDATE: 4/18/18

Knott’s Berry Farm is a theme park located in Buena Park, not far from Disneyland, and is open year-round. There are a lot of Knott’s Berry Farm discounts available. Check below for the latest Knott’s Berry Farm admission discounts, coupons, and offers.

Knott’s Berry Farm began as an actual farmstand that sold berries and other produce from nearby farms. People from all over Los Angeles would head there for fruit, jams, candy, syrup, much of it made with a kind of berry you could only get at Knott’s – the Boysenberry. As their popularity grew, they added the now-famous Chicken Dinner Restaurant and then started adding attractions for people to experience while they waited for a table at the restaurant. Eventually Knott’s developed into a unique theme park with all kinds of rides and attractions including rollercoasters and a log flume.

Knott’s associated Southern California water park, Knott’s Soak City Orange County in Buena Park (near Disneyland) is open seasonally. Check below for the latest Knott’s Soak City discounts, coupons and offers.

If you need tickets to Knott’s Berry Farm or Soak City and other Southern California attractions, it’s worth checking out the available multi-attraction ticket discounts to see if they can save you extra money. Be sure to compare the final cost of a multi-park pass to the combined cost of the individual tickets; the best deal varies depending on the specific attractions and the discounts that are currently available.

All offers are subject to change without notice. Always call ahead and confirm before driving out of your way to take advantage of a particular offer!

To check the Southern California site, click here and enter zip code 91608. Once you get to the club home page, click the “Discounts” tab and select “Tickets.”

If a particular discount on the Southern California site involves booking online through the club site, you will usually need to be a Southern California member. Discounts that involve showing your card at the gate are available to any AAA member. If you can get to a Southern California AAA club office, you can usually take advantage of offers that must be bought in person, even if you’re a member of a different AAA club.

Generally AAA members get 30% off Regular (adult) admission to Knott’s Berry Farm, and sometimes discounts on other things such as food or merchandise.
