Living in the land of the theme parks, most SoCal kids are pretty sophisticated when it comes to the rides, shows and technological magic that comes with the territory. So it’s a thrill to take them somewhere that throws away the tech tricks and wows them with good old-fashioned fun and imagination. And that’s exactly what happens at Ghost Town Alive!, Knott’s Berry Farm’s summer adventure that plops kids right in the middle of a Wild West Story, and makes them part of the action.  Flip through to find out all about this interactive summer adventure.

Take a Trip to the Wild West

The streets of Knott’s Wild West town Calico come to life. There are bandits, cowboys, robberies, judges, a good ol’ western hoedown, and much more. But the best part is that it’s not just theme park workers dressed in western garb; this town is populated with dedicated actors who won’t break character as they tell the story of a day on the frontier. Your kids will giggle over their confusion regarding cell phones and references to modern life.
