On the outskirts of Calico, a new expedition in an uncharted territory awaits eager explorers with the debut of the park’s newest attraction, Calico River Rapids. Opening at Knott’s Berry Farm on Friday, May 17th, the new white water raft ride takes explorers on a search for new land where indigenous wildlife, treacherous roaring rapids, dynamic water effects plus a variety of wild surprises will be encountered along the way. The attraction comes to life with many new animatronics and special effects designed and manufactured by Garner Holt Productions, Inc.

Below is an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at some of the extensive work, that was involved with the development of this attraction! Hats off to all of the thought and production that has been put into this amazing classic ride!
