Buena Park's Knotts Berry Farm announced today that they would be remaining closed until at least mid-May due to the COVID-19 virus. The amusement park was initially scheduled to remain closed until the end of the month, however due to the current health state of California, the date has been delayed. In a statement on the Cedar Fair Entertainment Company website, the theme park alerted the public of their intended schedule.
"As we continue to follow regional and national health directives related to COVID-19, we want to provide the latest update regarding our park schedule. Currently, Knott's Berry Farm, Knott's Berry Farm Hotel, and California Marketplace are temporarily closed. It is our hope to reopen those properties mid-May or as soon thereafter as possible," the statement read.
"We believe this decision is in the best interest of our associates, our guests, and our communities."
As of now Universal Studios Hollywood, Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, Disneyland, and California adventure have all announced that they will remain closed until the end of March. Although Magic Mountain has stated that they will reevaluate their status at the end of the month, that has since been superseded by Governor Gavin Newsom's statewide "stay at home" order. The mandate is in effect until further notice.
