Calico River Rapids coming to Knott’s Berry Farm in 2019

Calico River Rapids coming to Knott's Berry Farm in 2019

Knott’s Berry Farm announced today that Bigfoot Rapids, which closed at the end of September, will be re-themed and renamed to Calico River Rapids in 2019.

According to Knott’s:

Calico River Rapids will take voyagers on a search for new land through the outskirts of Calico. Rafters will encounter a variety of wild surprises along the way, such as roaring rapids, and indigenous wildlife.  The circular raft ride, which seats six passengers, will traverse through unexpected twists and turns, rushing waters and rapid currents as it navigates the unexplored river path.

Garner Holt Productions, Inc. will be providing the animatronics and special effects for the overhaul.

Knott’s also announced popular events returning in 2019, including Peanuts Celebration, The Boysenberry Festival, Ghost Town Alive!, and of course, Spooky Farm.
