California amusement park now requires chaperone for all visitors under 18 – Times-Herald

As of Friday, Knott’s Berry Farm will not accept visitors under the age of 18 unless they come with a cap.

The Buena Park theme park policy will begin on July 22 and will remain in effect on Fridays and Saturdays until the new warning is issued, park officials said.

The rule aims to ensure safety after a series of clashes between teenagers on Saturday, July 16, when the park was forced to close early.

All visitors aged 17 and under must go with a champion who is at least 21 years old on Friday or Saturday to enter Knott’s Berry Farm theme park or Knott’s Soak City water park.

A single cap can have as many as three minor visitors a day. The champion must have a valid ID, provide a telephone number and be with minors throughout the visit.

“For decades, Knott’s Berry Farm has been a place where family and friends come together to enjoy a unique park full of home experience and immersive entertainment,” Knott officials said in a statement. “Millions of guests have told us about family fun every day and we are committed to keeping that promise going forward.”

Videos of Knott’s chaos and panic over the past weekend showed him throwing fists during fights throughout the park while visitors hid in shops and restaurants. The shooting reports were baseless, Buena Park police said. After the fighting, Knott stepped up security.
