Knott’s Berry Farm has reached out to its Season Passholders with a message from Jon Storbeck, the vice president and general manager of Knott’s Berry Farm. The letter details what is known about the future of the Season Passes moving forward. In the letter, Storbeck shares that a reopening date for the park is still unknown. Because of this unknown, they are taking the unprecedented steps of extending 2020 Season Passes through 2021. For those who are a part of the monthly payment program, monthly payments have been suspended. This will continue until the parks reopen and then payments will resume.

The message comes as theme parks around the globe continue to be closed because of the coronavirus outbreak. It is unknown how this will impact the different events Knott’s Berry Farm has planned through the year. Already, the Boysenberry Farm has been impacted. Generally, Knott’s Berry Farm also would have celebrations for families to enjoy for Summer, Halloween, and Christmas later this year. Knott’s Scary Farm also takes over the park for some more intense Halloween time fun. Below is the message that was posted on the Knott’s Berry Farm website.

A Message from Jon Storbeck, Vice President & General Manager of Knott’s Berry Farm

April 4, 2020 Update

As we all continue to navigate this unprecedented situation, we want to thank you for your continued patience and support of Knott’s Berry Farm.  Our team would like nothing more than to open our park and welcome you back.  Clearly that is not an option for us right now, and our priority is to keep everyone safe — our valued guests, our amazing associates, and our cherished communities.

Given the uncertainty around our park reopening, we want to share how we will manage 2020 Season Passholder benefits:

  • 2020 Season Passes and purchased 2020 Season Pass Add-On Products (if applicable) will be valid for the remainder of 2020 when our park is able to reopen. 
  • Additionally, 2020 Regular, Gold and Platinum Season Passes (as well as purchased 2020 Season Pass Add-On Products) will remain valid through the 2021 Season, ending December 31, 2021. 
  • For 2020 Passholders participating in our Easy Pay Program, we have automatically suspended monthly billing as of today, April 4, 2020, and will continue to do so while the park is closed.   When the park reopens, billing will resume.   Passholders will need to be current on payments in order to receive both 2020 and 2021 Season Pass admission and associated benefits.

Our Season Passholders represent some of our most loyal guests, and we want to ensure that you receive a full season of fun as promised when you purchased your 2020 Season Pass.  This is a very unusual time for all of us, and we again thank you for your understanding and loyalty to Knott’s Berry Farm.
