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

The man eventually came down safely, police in Buena Park tweeted shortly after 9 p.m. local time.

Knott’s Berry Farm started as a roadside berry stand in the 1920s and has since grown into a theme 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 after a shutdown because of the coronavirus pandemic.
