Knott’s Berry Farm Closes Early Due to “Unruly Behavior” of Teens

Knott’s Berry Farm was forced to close three hours early on Saturday night due to the “unruly behavior” of teenagers. The park released an update on social media explaining the situation. The following statement was shared by Knott’s Berry Farm:

The safety of Knott’s Berry Farm’s guests and associates is always our top priority. On Saturday evening, the decision was made to close the park 3 hours early due to unruly behavior and altercations involving a number of teenagers. This behavior did not align with our park’s values, and was not the experience we want any guest to have while visiting Knott’s Berry Farm.

The park will reopen again tomorrow, Sunday, July 17.
