Knott’s Berry Farm is re-theming its Bigfoot Rapids attraction into a brand new adventure.

Knott’s popular white water raft ride, Bigfoot Rapids, will undergo a major renovation to add new features to the attraction, including new animatronics, themed show scenes, a new story overlay, and dynamic water effects.

Calico River Rapids will take guests on a search for new land on the outskirts of Calico, the themed area in the park’s Ghost Town. Riders will travel through the authentic setting with the help of frontiersmen who have planned the path for settlers to explore.

Rafters will encounter plenty of surprises along the way, like roaring rapids, indigenous wildlife, and unique homesteaders. The circular raft ride vehicle will seat six passengers and travel through twists and turns, rushing waters, and rapids currents as it navigates this unexplored river path.
