Knott's Berry Farm was founded by Walter Knott, a man of the Depression Era. During the Depression, his wife had a roadstand where she sold preserves and dinners. Long lines quickly formed for Mrs. Knott's dinners and Walter Knott created Old West Ghost Town to amuse waiting customers. Old West Ghost Town, created in 1940, was the first American theme park. Today, Knott's Berry Farm is a Southern Californian theme park that has more intense rides than Disneyland's attractions. It's not as family oriented as Disneyland but Knott's Berry Farm attracts those who are seeking more of a thrill than a family experience.
