    Usually the annual Knott’s Peanuts Celebration is centered in Camp Snoopy — which features more than a dozen kiddie rides including the Peanuts-themed Pig Pen’s Mud Buggies, Linus Launcher and Charlie Brown’s Kite Flyer.

    But this year Camp Snoopy is undergoing a major makeover set to debut Memorial Day Weekend 2024 that will add a new family coaster and super-sized kids swing and update an off-road rally race and miniature train ride.
