According to my son, we would like to be on a roller coaster at midnight, so he can finish the year riding and start the new year riding. That sounds like a fun plan for me.
So what does the celebration include? Well besides live entertainment, fireworks there is other things that will make Knotts the place to be for New Year's eve. And the cool thing is that all the celebration is included with regular daytime admission and the park will have extended hours (open 10 am to 1 am)
- MIDNIGHT PARTY ON THE MIDWAY - BOARDWALK AREA (starts at 11:50 pm): Count down the New Year with music, stilt walkers, party hats, and noisemakers for everyone. And new this year, the Knott's Sky Cabin, adorned with special lighting effects, will dramatically rise to the top of the "K" tower to count down the final moments of 2013. The cabin will reach the top at the stroke of midnight and the skies above Knott's will be ablaze with colorful fireworks!
