Free admit at Knott's with toy

If you'll be in SoCal this December, here's a way to enjoy a day at one of the local theme parks, while feeling extra-good about doing something nice for someone else.

Knott's Berry Farm is offering free admission for anyone who brings to the park a new, unwrapped toy worth at least $10. The offer is available on Dec. 1, 2, 8, 9, 15 and 16, and the toy will go to the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve's Toys for Tots program.

While you are turning in your toy, you also can write a note to a Marine or other U.S. service personnel stationed abroad through the Pen Pals for Soldiers program.

Wow, that is phenomenal! Toys for tots is an excellent program that does not get enough attention and what Knotts is doing is mind-blowing...it really is. All the parks should do that and i'm not just saying that for the free entrance. There are a lot of kids out there that really want toys for Christmas and do not recieve them, this is a great way to make sure that there is no child out there that doesnt have a Merry Christmas. Two thumbs up for Knotts, i wish i was there. And for those who do take advantage of this, please do write a nice note to the servicemen and women that are overseas, i was there once and I know how lonely it can feel.

Two thumbs up to Knotts! One of the best ideas todate. Shame the mouse didnt think of it or better yet copie it!

I completely agree with David, be nice if the mouse would do something like this. I know realistically, it couldn't do the free entrance due to volume the park would see already during the busy holidays, but maybe for locals half off or something... Free parking, save $11 to spend in the park on mickey ears for a screaming child LOL
