Buena Park is a fun little Southern California city. It's quite near to Orange and L.A. county attractions and even has it's own like a wax museum, Medieval Times, Pirate Adventure, and of course Knott's Berry Farm!. Knott's Berry Farm is a far cry from the insanity that is Disneyland. I love the laid back atmosphere and the humble beginnings behind this park. Ghost Rider is also still my favorite coaster EVER! Get a slice of pie and try the berry punch and enjoy a stroll around this great park.
