    This park is awesome ! We go to this park once a year – come down from Northern CA for a few weekdays in Sept or Oct. THis place really is a ghost town during the weekdays. Walk on all rides! Park is beautiful, spacious, and friendly staff. We stay at the hotel – great buffet breakfast. 3 nights at this hotel is less then 1 night at disney hotel! So much better then disney- where it is crowded and long lines and overpriced!! I come to LA now just for Knotts and skip Disney.
