Creatures from the Deep at Knott's

Theme park fans have long been asking for a new dark ride in the building which once housed two of Knott’s Berry Farm’s most cherished attractions; Berry Tales and Kingdom of the Dinosaurs. The large, multi-story building has been sitting dark for years waiting for a new theme.

In late 2014, Knott’s management revealed plans for a spectacular new interactive 4-D attraction called Voyage to the Iron Reef. Opening in the spring of 2015, Voyage to the Iron Reef adds high-tech fun for everyone as guests save Knott’s from mysterious creatures emerging from the seas beneath the boardwalk in a cutting edge media-based battle. The ride comes with an intricate back story. The Queen of the Kraken and her aquatic army have surfaced to feed on the steel of any attraction within their grasps. Their unquenchable appetite for coaster metal has turned these creatures into swimming mechanical monsters unlike anything ever seen on the ocean floor.

Guests who have what it takes to become brave deep sea navigators will climb aboard four-person submarine-inspired ride vehicles and embark on the four-minute gaming adventure into the Iron Reef, along 600 feet of track through 11 scenes. Equipped with an interactive freeze ray, guests will aim for ballooning puffer fish, an iron clad octopus and other exciting 3-D creatures as they attempt to blast the most sea life and save Knott’s from a watery doom.

“The same commitment to storytelling and dedication to incorporating the most cutting edge ride technologies that made Knott’s Bear-y Tales and Kingdom of the Dinosaurs so popular is what has driven the Iron Reef creative process,” says Raffi Kaprelyan, vice president and general manager of Knott’s Berry Farm. “The technology showcased in Iron Reef will honor the legacy of the attractions that preceded it, and propel the on-ride experience into the 21st century.”

Start planning your late spring/early summer trips to Orange County now and prepare to battle and save Knott’s Berry Farm from these underwater creatures.
