Alexander: It’s great to be back in California for a little bit! Our 3-day visit included visits to all of our LA-area favs, starting with Knott’s Berry Farm! It’s been about 4 months since our last visit, and we’re seeing a lot of positive changes!
– In the past, many of our images have been posted, featured, and shared on forums, social media platforms and websites around the web. We work hard to provide the coverage that we do, and we encourage our audience to share our content and use our images, BUT ONLY IF proper credit is given to thecoasterkings.com. Thank you! –
But how can this be? All 7 Montezooma’s Revenge vehicles are in attendance! Turns out Knott’s still has two complete trains for their priceless Schwarzkopf Shuttle Loop!
Knott’s enthusiasts may be aware that Montezooma has had a spare train at various points in its life, but the last known photographs of a 2nd Montezooma train are about 20 years old. What’s unlcear is if that spare train is the same train we see today, or if one became a parts donor and a “new” train was acquired. Either way, Mont’s new train is a sight to see!
While it will never amount to the thrilling expectations we had, HangTime continues to please crowds en masse. It’s running slower now, but the hang time (!) experienced in certain elements is probably closer to design intentions.
Knott’s seems to have a good rhythm for 2-train operations on HangTime. While the 3rd train winds up not being totally necessary, it’s great to have a back up; HangTime should pretty much always be able to run 2 trains. No excuses!
That concludes our Knott’s update! Stay tuned for a Six Flags Magic Mountain / West Coast Racers update!
