Sol SpinÂ will bring brand new hair-raising thrills to the Fiesta Village area of the park next season. The new ride will send brave guests on a thrilling topsy-turvy adventureÂ over 6 stories highÂ as they rotate in all directions on one of six spinning arms. Sol Spin will be the newest addition to the theme parkâ€™s world-class line up of more than 40 rides and attractions when it opens in spring 2017.
But thatâ€™s not all! Knottâ€™s Berry Farm is also expanding the parkâ€™sÂ Seasons of Fun.Â For the first time ever, the mouthwateringÂ Knottâ€™s Boysenberry Festival,Â exclusively dedicated to celebrating Knottâ€™s delicious roots, will be expanded toÂ 23 days.

This past summer to celebrate Ghost Townâ€™s 75thÂ anniversary, Knottâ€™s debuted the one-of-a-kind interactive experienceÂ Ghost Town Alive!Â The extremely popular interactive experience returns for a second year packed with new characters and even more interactive old west fun. The citizens of Calico return to take guests on an immersive journey back in time to the old west of the late 1800s when bandits and cowboys battle for control of the west.Â This summer the wild- west gets a little wilder, as new story lines and plot twists will be revealed throughout the season insuring guests will never experience the same adventure twice. Ghost Town Alive! offers something for everyone in your posse.

Four of the slides on the tower will feature anÂ Aqua-Launch chamberÂ which will innovatively launch guests as the floor under their feet drops them into an almost vertical free fall through a series of flat loops and S-curves in a translucent flume. Shore Break will also feature dueling tube slides that will zip riders through an enchanting series of drops and turns. The height requirements for Shore Break slides are 48 inches.Â Â The WedgeÂ slide tower will take the location of the current Pacific Spin and will be an open air family raft ride. Up to six guests at a time will descend down navigating twists and turns and unexpected drops. The minimum height requirement is 40 inches and 40 â€“ 48 inches must be accompanied by a responsible person.
