A heavy rainstorm fueled by a “Bomb Cyclone” weather phenomenon has forced Knott’s Berry Farm to close its gates a day after Six Flags Magic Mountain threw in the towel due to the relentless bad weather.
Knott’s will be closed on Thursday, Jan. 5 due to inclement weather, according to the Buena Park theme park’s official Twitter account. Select California Marketplace shops outside the Knott’s front gate will be open until 6 p.m. on Thursday.
Magic Mountain closed on Wednesday, Jan. 4 due to the rain. Six Flags officials said Magic Mountain would open as scheduled on Thursday.
The heavy rain triggered Legoland California’s “Rainy Day Promise” that offers visitors in the Carlsbad theme park on Thursday a chance to return within a year.
The ruthless winter storm that prompted a California state of emergency declaration is being fueled by a meteorological phenomenon known as a “Bomb Cyclone” churning over the Pacific Ocean.
Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, Universal Studios Hollywood, SeaWorld San Diego and Legoland California remained open despite the rain showers throughout Southern California.
