Knott’s Builds Amphitheater for Laser Show
Knott’s Berry Farm has begun building an amphitheater for a new multimedia laser show.
Combining synchronized lasers, pyrotechnics, music and images projected onto a “water screen,” the Electric Nights show will become a permanent attraction at the park’s Reflection Lake every night. The amphitheater, due to open by Memorial Day weekend, will accommodate 4,500 customers, most of whom will stand.
To provide space for the amphitheater, Mission Row will be moved to the California MarketPlace, a shopping and dining area adjoining the park. Designed as a tribute to early Spanish settlement in the state, the Knott’s mission attractions were added in the 1940s by founder Walter Knott.
