Camp Snoopy at Knott's Berry Farm is a Peanuts-themed land that focuses on attractions for the younger children. The rides here are adorable and colorful, and most are enjoyable for the whole family. Food is limited to just the Grizzly Creek Lodge and Cave Inn Snacks, along with a few food carts here and there. However, Grizzly Creek Lodge is usually one of the first restaurants in the park to open, so it's a great stop for breakfast, especially if you're looking to make the most out of a dining plan.

Sierra Sidewinder, the most popular ride in this land, is located just at the entrance and is the most thrilling ride in Camp Snoopy. Timberline Twister is a mild coaster for kids that adults can also enjoy. Huff and Puff is a cute ride that lets kids power their own ride vehicle while a staff member encourages and guides them. The High Sierra Ferris Wheel is a classic carnival-style attraction that also offers great views of the Camp Snoopy area.

The land itself is more calm than other parts of the park. The beautiful greenery and waterfalls also make it really feel like you're at a summer camp! Camp Snoopy at Knott's Berry Farm is one of the best kid-friendly area we've seen at any theme park.

Top 3 Things to do in Camp Snoopy

No 1 Icon
Ride Sierra Sidewinder
There's a reason this ride is one of the most popular in Camp Snoopy: it's really fun! It's also the most thrilling ride, but it's still arguably a family coaster that most of the family can enjoy. The lines do tend to get a little long since this ride is right near the entrance to the theme park, so we suggest riding it sooner rather than later.

Ride Balloon Race
The theming is charming on this relaxing, long ride. It's another great one for the family, since it doesn't go too fast or too high. Lines are also never really long for it, so it's a convenient stop while you're in Camp Snoopy at Knott's Berry Farm.

Charlie Brown's Kite Flyer
Height: 36"

The Kite-Eating Tree makes an appearance on this ride that swings guests in a circle. It's a typical mild swinger ride, but the theming is charming and the line is usually pretty low, even on busier park days.

High Sierra Ferris Wheel

A classic carnival ferris wheel, this ride offers beautiful views of Camp Snoopy and a nice break from the hustle and bustle of a theme park. It's fashioned like a ferris wheel from the 1890's and looks particularly lovely at night all lit up!
Huff and Puff
Height: 52" max
Intensity Level: Relaxing
Huff and Puff is labeled as relaxing, but perhaps that's not really the case since kids will have to pump and push their mining cart across the tracks. It's an adorable concept that allows kids to really burn some of their extra energy by making their cart go faster and faster while guardians get a nice little break on the sidelines.
Linus Launcher
Height: 36" alone | under 36" w/adult
Intensity Level: Mild
Let Snoopy swing you round and round as you hold on to your beloved blanket on this ride that lets you take flight. You'll be laying Superman-style as the ride swings you round and round. It's a charming ride that's easy to get on and off fairly quickly as there's usually not a long line.

Intensity Level: N/A
This adorable stand lets you purchase hand made pastel portraits that make great park souvenirs to take home. Also in the same stand, kids can get their faces painted for some extra fun in the park.

Pig Pen's Mud Buggies
Height: 36" alone | under 36" w/adult
Intensity Level: Mild
Enjoy a little fun in the mud with Pig Pen on this ride where guests board an ATV buggy and follow Pig Pen's trail of dirt and dust. The ride is fairly bumpy as the terrain is rough, but it's charming and kids really seem to enjoy it.
Rapid River Run
Height: 42" alone | under 42" w/adult
Intensity Level: Mild
Guests are swung around in a large raft in this classic swinging boat ride. The raft rocks back and forth while it spins in circles, making for a slightly thrilling but dizzying ride. It's another ride that has fairly short wait times, even during busier seasons.
Rocky Mountain Trucking Co.
Height: 36" alone | under 36" w/adult
Intensity Level: Relaxing
This charming ride lets guests take a drive with the Peanuts Rocky Mountain Trucking Company. Kids can either choose to sit in the driver's sit or in the back of the truck (which also includes a little steering wheel and horn). Guardians get to sit in the back of the trucks and enjoy a relaxing drive around the High Sierra Mountains of Camp Snoopy.
Sierra Sidewinder
Height: 48" alone | 42" w/adult
Intensity Level: Thrilling
This coaster combines the classic movements of a vehicle on a coaster track with with a spinning vehicle, which adds another layer to the excitement. The coaster itself is solid family coaster with a max speed of 37 mph and twists and turns and drops that are fairly mild. The added spinning makes the ride a little more rough, but that's part of the fun!
Timberline Twister
Height: 36" min | 69" max
Intensity Level: Mild
This children's coaster is a quick and bumpy ride that's perfect for little ones who are just getting used to coasters and more exciting rides. Adults 69" can join kids, but the seating starts to get tight when you reach the max height

Height: 36" min
Intensity: Relaxing
Guests join Woodstock as he delivers mail around Camp Snoopy at Knott's Berry Farm on this charmingly themed ride that kids really enjoy. There's technically no maximum height set for this ride, but we've never seen anyone older than around 10 on the ride -probably because all the other rides are that age or younger.
