Knott’s Berry Farm announced today in honor of their 100th anniversary celebration that the Bear-y Tales theme park ride is returning to the theme park in 2020. But this time with a twist! Bear-y Tales is an all-new 4-D interactive dark ride, bringing to life a continuation of the classic attraction initially commissioned by the Knott Family and created in 1975 by the legendary attraction designer Rolly Crump. Rolly Crump is also famous for his work on the Enchanted Tiki Room, Haunted Mansion and It’s a Small World at Disneyland.
Berry-y Tales Returns To Knott’s Berry Farm in 2020
Knott’s Bear-y Tales: Return to the Fair will take guests on an exciting journey through reimagined show scenes that are reminiscent of 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 new story lines 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. New digitally rendered scenes will recreate the most popular scenes from the original attraction.
