Sean: Since we had a few days off we decided to hang out at some of SoCal’s parks this week. We were certainly in the mood for Montezooma’s Revenge and some fries at Knott’s Berry Farm, the park we hung out at first! In today’s Knott’s Berry Farm Update we take a look at our time at the park and the detailed Big Foot Rapids refurbishment, rumored to be the new Knott’s attraction!
– Over the years, many of our images have popped up on other sites and forums, awesome that our coverage spreads, not so awesome that not everyone mentioned where they got the images from. We are totally fine with our audience using our images, BUT ONLY IF credit is given to californiacoasterkings.com. Thank you! –
Our last few visits we kept running into issues trying to ride Montezooma’s Revenge, either it was down for the day or went down every time we tried riding. Today we were successful and got several rides in!
To our delight Xcelerator was running, so we had to get a few rides in on that beast as well. I am still very impressed every time I ride this Intamin. I’m not sure if they just performed some maintenance on the red train, but it was running very well.
Next up we rode HangTime, which to my surprise was only running one train. The ride is nicely warming up, though what I feared would happen to this Gerstlauer may just be true, it’s already starting to vibrate.
It’s a weird sight seeing the ride with no water, it certainly makes the lack of details and abundance of concrete very noticeable. The good news is that Big Foot Rapids is rumored to be the next big ride relaunch of Knott’s Berry Farm with new theming, animatronics, story, etc!
You know Disneyland Resort has cats, but Knott’s Berry Farm has a bunch of cute ones as well! Next time you get ready to ride GhostRider, take a look around the entrance rocks, you’ll likely spot one!
