Knott’s Berry Farm is celebrating 100 years in 2020, and part of that celebration will be the opening of an all-new 4-D interactive dark ride inspired by the classic Bear-y Tales attraction.
“Knott’s Bear-y Tales: Return to the Fair” will take guests on an exciting journey through reimagined show scenes inspired by the original dark ride, which include the Boysenberry Pie Factory, Frog Forest, Fortune Teller Camp, Thunder Cave, and Weird Woods, leading to a grand celebration at the County Fair.
This new story takes place 34 years after the original, and will follow Boysen Bear and Girlsen Bear as they travel to the County Fair to earn the blue ribbon prize for their boysenberry pies – but Crafty Coyote and his pups are on the prowl to steal all the pies for themselves.
Guests will climb aboard ride vehicles equipped with jelly blasters to recover all the stolen pies as they travel through whimsical environments and compete for the high score.
“The return of Knott’s Bear-y Tales is perfect for the 100th anniversary because it brings back one of the park’s most nostalgic and beloved attractions in an innovative 4-D dark ride format that will delight an entirely new generation of fans,” said Jon Storbeck, vice president and general manager of Knott’s Berry Farm.
