Knott’s Berry Farm delays opening for updated Camp Snoopy area

The debut of the new and improved Camp Snoopy, originally slated to open Memorial Day weekend, has been delayed.

The land’s reopening date has been pushed back until June or July, according to multiple reports.

“Due to construction delays, the official debut of the reimagined Camp Snoopy at Knott’s Berry Farm, originally scheduled for Memorial Day weekend, has been postponed. It is, however, anticipated to open early summer, with the launch of new attractions,” Knott’s officials told KTLA in a statement.

“The Camp Snoopy Theater will not be opening this summer, but guests will still be able to interact with their favorite Peanuts characters. Knott’s Berry Farm remains committed to providing the best experience for its guests and eagerly anticipates welcoming visitors of all ages to enjoy summer camp adventures with Snoopy and the Peanuts Gang.”

New additions, such as rides, dining and improved experiences are slated to come to the kiddie land in what will be the first extensive overhaul of the area in a decade.

The last time the theme park updated Camp Snoopy was in 2014 for its 30th anniversary, according to the Orange County Register.

Some of the new rides and experiences coming to the land include a new family coaster, an updated off-road rally race attraction and a super-sized swing suitable for kids and adults.

The updated plan for Camp Snoopy also includes a new theater, an updated version of Woodstock’s Airmail now known as Camp Post Office, a brand new lookout terrace area known as Barrell Bridge and Waterfall, updated dining at Grizzly Lodge and more.

At Barrell Bridge and Waterfall, guests can earn merit badges and explore the great outdoors. Parents can relax while their children participate in the activities.

Plans for the Camp Snoopy renovation were first announced last August.
