Some of Buena Park’s best family entertainment options are just a short distance away with a free transfer on OCTA Bus Route 29, which stops directly at the station. Some of these great attractions include Medieval Times, Pirate’s Dinner Adventure, Knott’s Berry Farm and the delicious Porto’s Bakery.
