Knott’s Berry Farm has decided to expand its “well-received” chaperone policy to include Sunday, park officials announced Tuesday.
The chaperone policy, which went into effect Friday after a series of fights between teenagers at the park, previously covered Fridays and Saturdays only. Officials said the change would be in effect until further notice and that the park “could add additional days of the week as needed”.
Under the new policy, all visitors 17 years of age or younger must be accompanied by an adult 21 years of age or younger and with valid identification. Unaccompanied minors will not be allowed to enter the amusement park in Buena Park.
According to the park, one chaperone can accompany no more than four minors per day.
The park’s code of conduct states: “Travelers must accompany their group for the duration of entry, remain with their group during their visit to the park, and be available by phone during during their stay.” “Visitors 17 and under found in the park unaccompanied will be evicted.”
The policy went into effect a few days after fights broke out among teenagers on July 16, forcing the park to close three hours early. The scuffles spooked park visitors and two people were taken to hospital.
“We are committed to keeping Knott’s Berry Farm a place where families and friends come together to enjoy a one-of-a-kind park filled with homegrown experiences and rich entertainment,” the Park officials said in a statement.
This policy will also apply to season pass holders of both Knott’s Berry Farm and Knott’s Soak City Water Park.
The park’s code of conduct prohibits “fighting or physical aggression of any kind” and “acts or conduct that park management determines is a safety concern or disrupt park operations or guest experience.” The park also prohibits any unruly behavior or the use of weapons of any kind.
