Knott’s Berry Farm tower climbs near Supreme Scream ride prompting police response

The popular Knott’s Berry Farm theme park in Southern California attracted police reaction Saturday night after a man apparently climbed a metal tower near the park’s Supreme Scream tour, according to reports.

The man eventually came safely down, tweeting police in Buena Park shortly after noon. 21 local time.

Earlier, photos posted by FOX 11 in Los Angeles showed the climber just below a large American flag at the top of the tower.

Police tweeted earlier around 6 p.m. 20 local time and confirmed the incident.

There was no immediate information about the climber’s identity or how he managed to climb the metal tower, FOX 11 reported. Whether the climber would be charged in connection with the incident was not immediately clear.

Knott’s Berry Farm started as a roadside stand in the 1920s and has since grown into an amusement park that includes rides, stage shows and other entertainment. Its Buena Park location is about 20 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles.

The park reopened in May following a shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.
