Knott’s Berry Farm and Triotech resurrect classic dark ride for new generation of guests

Celebrating Knott’s Berry Farm‘s 100th anniversary, “A Knott’s Family Reunion,” will bring together old classics with new favorites, which includes the continuation of the beloved Bear-y Tales story in an all-new 4-D interactive dark ride. “Knott’s Bear-y Tales: Return to the Fair” will take guests on an exciting journey through reimagined show scenes from the original dark ride, including the Boysenberry Pie Factory, Frog Forest, Fortune Teller Camp, Thunder Cave, and Weird Woods, culminating in a celebration at the County Fair. The story takes place 34 years after the original adventure and follows Boysen Bear and Girlsen Bear as they travel to the Country Fair to earn the blue ribbon prize for their famous boysenberry pies, but Crafty Coyote is back along with his mischievous pups intent on stealing all the pies for themselves. Guests will climb aboard ride vehicles equipped with jelly blasters to try and recover the stolen boysenberry pies as they travel through whimsical and beautiful environments while competing for the highest score.

“Knott’s Bear-y Tales: Return to the Fair” is being produced by Knott’s in conjunction with Triotech and is a re-theming of the interactive 4D dark ride “Voyage to the Iron Reef.” The new attraction will open Summer 2020.
