As I will be in Los angeles, I was considering visiting Knott's berry farm on Oct. 15 (saturday) or Oct. 21 (wednesday).
However, I have been reading some alarming mesasges on the discussion board with respect to the crowds / waiting time for the rides (as I will probably will visit the park being alone, I'd really hate waiting more than half an hour or an hour per major attraction ride).
Could any of you please comment on how bad are the waiting times for the rides? Is it only bad during the evening opening from 7 to 1/2 or is the park also crowded during the daytime opening?
The big issue in October will be the park closing in the late afternoon each day for the Halloween Haunt event at night. That will, however, help keep the crowds relatively light. As always, get there early and hit Silver Bullet and Ghostrider first.
I'll definitely try to visit Knott's during daytime when I'll be in the area. As I have never been to this park before I think I would enjoy more the park with little waiting and without the halloween extras :-)
