Knott’s Berry Farm

We were commissioned to design the ghost town themed environments around the park’s newest & premier coaster attraction, as well as  provide conceptual designs for a venerable family favorite feature, Pan For Gold. To properly research inspiration for these attractions we traveled to remote and abandoned towns across the West’s deserts to acquire first-hand knowledge of the structures & native plant material.

We then produced schematic and design development drawings to re-create these historically and regionally accurate environments. We then collaborated with the park’s engineering and design teams on the the construction drawings and installation oversight.
