Life in Orange County
Bear-y Tales is coming back to Knott’s Berry Farm!
Bear-y Tales is back at Knott’s Berry Farm in an all-new 4-D interactive dark ride!!!
I didn’t get a chance to enjoy the Bear-y Tales ride the first time around, so I’m very excited to enjoy it as it joins the 100th anniversary of Knott’s Berry Farm!
The 100th anniversary begins May 15 through August 30 and is aptly named “A Knott’s Family Reunion.” It will bring together old classics with new favorites, which includes the return of the beloved Bear-y Tales story in an all-new 4-D interactive dark ride, bringing to life a continuation of the classic attraction initially commissioned by the Knott Family and created in 1975 by the legendary attraction designer Rolly Crump.
Knott’s Bear-y Tales: Return to the Fair
Knott’s Bear-y Tales: Return to the Fair is a new 4-D interactive dark ride that will take guests on an exciting journey through reimagined show scenes that are reminiscent of the original dark ride, including the Boysenberry Pie Factory, Frog Forest, Fortune Teller Camp, Thunder Cave, and Weird Woods, culminating in a celebration at the County Fair. The story takes place 34 years after the original adventure and will follow Boysen Bear and Girlsen Bear as they travel to the Country Fair to earn the blue ribbon prize for their famous boysenberry pies, but Crafty Coyote is back along with his mischievous pups intent on stealing all the pies for themselves. Guests will climb aboard ride vehicles equipped with jelly blasters to try and recover the stolen boysenberry pies as they travel through whimsical and beautiful environments while competing for the highest score.– Knott’s Berry Farm
The return of Knott’s Bear-y Tales will be a great addition to the all new and nostalgic experiences throughout the park that will be just perfect for kids and adults alike.
