Besides the renovation of the Calico Mine Ride, Knott’s Berry Farm is celebrating the 30th birthday of Camp Snoopy. For that reason, the park will install 3 new family rides! Let’s take a look!
Charlie Brown’s Kite Flyer invites campers to “fly a kite” with Charlie Brown and soar above the Camp Snoopy section of the park. The 32-passenger family ride allows guests to sit side-by-side on 16 swings for a spin that will take riders up 18 feet above the ground. ‘As the tree rises, good ol’ Charlie Brown is revealed upside down and all tied up in kite string!’ Charlie Brown’s Kite Flyer will replace Snoopy Bounce.
Pig Pen’s Mud Buggies lets riders climb aboard their own all-terrain vehicle for a crazy ride around the High Sierras, this ride will be a hit with the public. 6 4-seater ATVs ‘will spin, bounce, and bump up to 24 guests at a time, while Pig Pen looks on from his center perch’. Pig Pen’s Mud Buggies will replace Log Peeler.
Linus Launcher ‘recreates that classic Peanut’s moment when Snoopy grabs Linus’ blanket and launches him on a wild ride’. On this brand new family ride, guests lay on one of twelve “blankets” as they fly round and round. This kind of flat-ride tends to be very popular with theme-park visiting families, it’s a small step towards the mighty Flying Coasters. Up to 24 guests lay side-by-side (4 per row) while ‘Snoopy launches them up almost 10 feet in the air’. This ride us located closely to Huff ‘n Puff, The Grizzly Creek Lodge, and the other side of Camp Snoopy (towards front-gates)! Linus Launcher will replace Charlie Brown’s Speedway.
These family rides will definitely fit the area, and it will be great to see this side of Camp Snoopy refreshed!
