This week's release in the Knott's 100th Pin Series will have you JUMPING for joy!
There's a special feeling you get when you see that giant "K" high in the sky. It means you're almost to Knott's Berry Farm! Since June 12, 1976, the giant neon "K" atop the Sky Jump has been a flashing, animated beacon, visible day or night for miles. Rising 235 feet into the air, the Sky Jump was the centerpiece of the brand new "Roaring 20's Airfield" expansion of Knott's. Themed around a bustling airfield, the land ushered in a new era of fun at the Farm. Featuring thrill rides like the Loop Trainer and the Motorcycle Chase, the Sky Jump towered above them all and offered guests a chance to ride to the top before plummeting back down to earth with the help of a brightly colored parachute. Though the parachute Sky Jump attraction closed in the 1990's, guests can still get a breathtaking view of Knott's and Orange County with a ride on the Sky Cabin, a much more serene ride than the parachute. Knott's proudly honors the Sky Jump with this special collector pin destined to bring back fond memories of that bygone 20's era.

On crowded days, the Spaceport is opened and used to move guests out of the heat. The design of the “Space Probe DL05,” suspended over the Spaceport boarding area inside Space Mountain, was inspired by the iconic Discovery One spacecraft from the classic 1968 science fiction film “2001: A Space Odyssey.”
The Rivers of America span Frontierland, New Orleans Square and Critter Country.
While visiting Frontierland, Disneyland park guests can cruise back in time on a 14-minute sightseeing voyage aboard a recreation of the glorious 19th-century steam-powered paddlewheel riverboats that carried people and cargo up and down the mighty Mississippi.
A Legendary Vessel
Board the 110-foot-long, fully rigged Columbia and sail away into a long-forgotten time. Marvel at the towering mainmast and inspect the cannons and deck-mounted guns the crew used to repel pirate attacks.
As you cruise around Pirate’s Lair on Tom Sawyer Island, relive the pioneering adventures of the original Columbia, the first American ship to circumnavigate the globe.
It took the real Columbia 3 years to sail around the world, but your voyage will last about 15 minutes.
Venture below the main deck and find historical displays recreating the living conditions of 18th-century sailors. Celebrate the dedication and sacrifice of the brave explorers who filled in the final details of the world’s map.
The Mark Twain Riverboat and Big Thunder Mountain are reflected in the Rivers of America in Frontierland at Disneyland Park in Anaheim, Calif. Frontierland brings to life the natural beauty, excitement and promise of the American West in the 1800s.
The landscaping of Critter Country creates a backwoods area that looks as if it had been created by Mother Nature herself. When the area was redesigned in the 1970s, more than 165 trees were planted, adding to the 100 trees that were already transplanted from other areas of Disneyland. One Canary Island Pine weighed more than 18 tons. The main trees in Critter Country are monterey, Canary Island, aleppo and Italian stone pines, honey locust, white birch and evergreen elm. Overgrown grasses and a large selection of shrubs add to the land’s forest feel.
The tranquil Hungry Bear Restaurant is a relaxing area to have a meal. Extra seating overlooking the Rivers of America can be found on the first story of the shaded terrace.
Along the Mississippi
The Mark Twain is an authentic reproduction of the historic vessels that ferried people up and down the mighty Mississippi River. A working steam engine converts the water from the Rivers of America into steam that in turn powers the large paddle that propels the boat.
Featuring meticulously detailed wood craftsmanship, the 28-foot tall, 105-foot-long riverboat is comprised of 4 pristine decks:
Pilothouse, also known as the top deck, features the wheelhouse and Captain’s Quarters
Promenade Deck includes a salon and a collection of vintage photos and maps
Texas (or Sun) Deck is the perfect place to enjoy the outdoors as you float down the river
Main Deck includes the boiler and pistons that run the paddlewheel
A gorgeous new Columbia Gorge section is the backdrop as guests enjoy their journey aboard the Disneyland Railroad, one of the original Disneyland attractions. Guests also enjoy this new landscape, including five spectacular waterfalls, from the Mark Twain Riverboat, Sailing Ship Columbia and Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes.
The north bank of the Columbia Gorge, complete with a beautiful waterfront and 5 sparkling waterfalls.
A rustic frontier cabin,
An idyllic Native American village,
A busy beaver at work chewing on the train trestle,
Mountain lions relaxing in the sun,
The Disneyland Railroad steaming into the wilderness .
Splash Mountain – at both Disneyland park in California and Magic Kingdom park in Florida – will soon be completely reimagined. The theme is inspired by an all-time favorite animated Disney film, “The Princess and the Frog.” We pick up this story after the final kiss, and join Princess Tiana and Louis on a musical adventure – featuring some of the powerful music from the film – as they prepare for their first-ever Mardi Gras performance.
Work is well underway and Imagineers will soon be able to conduct preliminary reviews and develop a timeline for when the transformation can start to take shape.
This special, collectible locket is a true treasure for any princess. The locket is a rose gold plated necklace that hangs gracefully around your neck, displaying a double-sided embossed storybook pendant; one side shows the front of the "book" with the Sleeping Beauty original 1959 logo, while the other side shows the silhouette of Princess Aurora. Clasped with a magnet closure, the inside of the locket reveals a round well of cream rouge. Once the product has been completely used, this necklace can be worn as a locket and the rouge can easily be replaced by a small photo of someone dear to your heart.
Besame's signature cream rouge formula is highly concentrated, non-greasy, and lightweight-but-lasting, making it easier to blend than typical powder blushes, and gives a soft, velvety finish. Comes in a natural rosy pink shade that complements any skin tone.
Can be applied easily with the fingertips or your favorite makeup sponge. Very versatile - can be used not only for a fresh, sheer, healthy-looking lift on the cheeks, but can also be worn on the lips for a matching lightweight glow, keeping lips moisturized in case you're waiting for true love's kiss!
As always, this product and all of our products are cruelty free and made in the U.S.A. This limited edition, licensed cream is also vegan, and talc-, paraben-, and gluten-free.
Chain length is 11 inches. Locket is 1.375 x 1.25 x 0.25 inches.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
