Knott's Berry Farm, Buena Park, California

In brief
Living in the shadows of Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm (yes, they actually used to grow berries here) charted its own course in the late 1990s when the folks that operate Cedar Point bought the park and started building the roller coasters and thrill rides that made its Ohio park famous. You can still get Mrs. Knott's Famous Chicken Dinner and stock up on her boysenberry jam, but you might want to hold off until after you've endured the awesome Ghostrider wood coaster.
