Knott’s Berry Farm closed Saturday night after several fights inside the park.


According to the Buena Park Police Department, officers responded to reports of multiple fights at the park around 7:30 p.m., following multiple calls to 911, as well as being notified by security at Knott’s Berry Farm .

Annette Duran, a CBSLA employee who was at the park Saturday night, described witnessing multiple fights and then stampedes by parkgoers trying to get out of the way.

Buena Park PD also said there were reports of gunshots heard during the fight, but added that they have found no evidence so far.

Several people were questioned by police, including victims who suffered non-life-threatening injuries, although it is not yet clear if any arrests have been made.

Two people were taken to a hospital for treatment, although the nature of their injuries was not immediately known.

Knott’s Berry Farm released a statement that said:

“The safety of Knott’s Berry Farm guests and associates is always our highest priority. On Saturday evening, the decision was made to close the park 3 hours early due to unruly behavior and altercations with several teenagers. This behavior did not align with our park values, and was not the experience we want any guest to have while visiting Knott’s Berry Farm.”

The park reopened as expected Sunday morning.
