    the price for the pass with dining pass is incorrect – the cheapest option costs 175.50 or 9 payments of 19.50. If you buy the gold or platinum then again price increases. Please check it out. Thank you for your information – I loved reading it.

      No problem! With the dining pass, you can have lunch AND dinner at the park. There are select restaurants to choose from and each restaurant has a dining plan menu. Most are usually combos, but do not include a drink. I suggest you take your refillable Knott’s Berry Farm cup. There needs to be a four hour window between your lunch and dinner. Hope this helps!

    If I get the pass that gives you 20% off food, is that unlimited? Like could I get food for my whole family with that?

    I was told if you have a gold pass from 2015 you can get in the whole month of January for $10.00 is that true?

      Not that I know of… although that would be awesome if it’s true because that’s what we have too. Let me see if I can get an answer for you.

    Can you help me understand about the Bring a Friend Days? Knott’s website says Discount Days. Are you just getting a discount on a friends’ ticket on specific days? What is the discount? How many times will there be Bring a Friend Day in 2016? Thank you, I can’t seem to find this information anywhere! 🙂

      Here’s their official response:

      “There are select days when Season Passholders can bring up to 4 people to the Park for a discounted ticket price. The dates are offered throughout the year and are announced about 3 weeks out. They are announced via the Season Passholder center at knotts.com/passholder and through the bi-weekly e-newsletters that Season Passholders receive.”

      Hope that helps!
