Knott's Shows Off New Camp Snoopy Upgrade + Mine Ride Work

© Knott's Berry Farm
Knott's Berry Farm is really at the top of its game, or at least it seems they're at the top - then they go and make additional announcements that make their plans even better!

The park recently gave a media tour of two major projects currently underway at the park, the renovation of Camp Snoopy and the total refurbishment of the Calico Mine Ride.  A part of the tour included the announcement of another upgrade for Camp Snoopy, the addition of the Peanuts characters to the Grand Sierra Railroad.

Six new scenes will be added along the train's path, featuring over a dozen Peanuts characters.  Linus will narrate the train's journey past the scenes that recreate iconic Peanuts moments such as "Charlie attempting to fish in a local stream, Snoopy and Woodstock enjoying a camp fire, and many more vignettes all featuring classic Peanuts’ action and humor."

Garner Holt Productions is creating the Peanuts characters that will be a part of the Grand Sierra Railroad.  They're also responsible for the figures in the current renovation of the Calico Mine Ride.  The above video shows the cast being created for the new attraction, while the photo up top shows a few completed figures.

Knott's got some great coverage from the tour - which also shows off the work underway on the Calico Mine Ride - and if you want to check out an very in depth one I suggest following this link to MiceChat.
