Knott's Berry Farm goes all out during the holiday season, turning the theme park into the annual Knott's Merry Farm with holiday decorations, music and snow. For New Year's Eve, they take it a step further with extended hours (10am Dec 31-1am Jan 1), a countdown to midnight and fireworks. Instead of a ball drop, the ride Knott's Sky Cabin will slowly rise to the top of its 200-foot tower in the final moments of 2016. When it hits the top, fireworks will explode into the sky, annoucing to all of those in the park that the new year has arrived. As if that wasn't enough, there also will be live entertainment throughout the park.
