Knotts Lines Week After Easter?

Knott's Berry Farm: Wondering what are the best days and times to go?

I'm wondering what the lines will be like at Knott's Berry Farm on the weekdays, the week after Easter.

I looked up several major school district calendars (San Diego, Phoenix, San Jose, etc.) and it appears most of the schools in the SouthWest are not off that week (a few are). We are planning on doing Disneyland either morning and/or evening on Mon, Tue, and Wed (just morning) and then we move to a hotel in Hollywood. I was thinking about leaving Disney area around 2 and heading to Knott's then hitting some rides and eating dinner then heading up to Hollywood at about 7-8 PM after rush hour. We don't need to ride any of the big coasters as it will be out 6 and 7-year old riding with us. We mainly want to do the Log Ride and a few others.

I found a previous thread that after 4 PM the lines go down? I just want to make sure we that we won't be waiting in long lines in late afternoon, early evening on Wednesday. I'm guessing not a problem since we won't be riding the most popular rides other than the Log Ride but it would be nice to get input from a local who knows the park's patterns well.

The other option would be to stay at the Knotts Resort Hotel Wed night and due Knotts early in the morning on Thur, but changing hotels twice is a pain and we are looking forward to our 4 nights at the Magic Castle Hotel in Hollywood.

Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I want to know on easter day what the lines are like so that makes 2 of us for that same time period. Any information would be great. I hear easter weekend is bad but I was wondering on easter day if it is OK or not as far as lines go.

Help anyone.

In response about easter sunday at knotts berry farm. Don't worry It is usually very slow on that day the hours will be from 10:00am to 7:00pm. Ghostrider is usually the longest line in the park. When I went on easter sunday last year it only was about 15 min. Every thing else was nearly a walk on. About the guy asking about the week after easter sunday during the week. It usually isn't to bad sometimes there are a lot of school field trips. but lines usually shouldn't be more than 30min. It will probably be pretty slow at that time. The log ride usually doesn't get over 45min. even on a busy day. Usually saturdays are the busiest days.
