Come to West Coast Bash in early Sept. and enjoy as many re-rides on GR as you can stand, lol! ;)


just a small warning, i didn't look last year, but normally, the week of WCB is often when Ghostrider is down for maintenance. the last WCB was the refurb year, and it closed the day after i believe. but i'm pretty positive in 2014 and 2015 Ghostrider was closed during WCB. hopefully, it will be open this year.

^ Yes, in 2016, GR stayed open for WCB, then closed down the next day, which was the Monday I went back to Knott's...and found this out. :sad:

So I agree with you, but this past year, there was no WCB, so Knott's did the maintenance thing with GR, whenever they wanted, in Sept.

Monday, Sept.12, 2016 ~ Grrrrrrrrrrrrr. I also didn't get the cap I wanted, as the chuck wagon
souvenirs shop at the exit of GR, was also closed for the maintenance schedule. <sad>

It operated from 1976 until 1999 in the Roaring 20's/Boardwalk section of the park, it was removed for Perilous Plunge.



That vid has come great footage. Parachute Jump, Whirlwind, Whirlpool (indoor Scrambler--and still miss that Art of Noise soundtrack), Windjammer, and glimpses of XK-1, Hammerhead, Wacky Soapbox Racers, Corkscrew, and more! Brought back a lot of memories. :)

Could you control the spinning on XK-1? Or was it random? Part of me wants to say the rider could control it but I’m not sure, I could be wrong.

Helices, pronounced "HEEL-ih-sees." Words of Greek origin ending in -ex have a weird plural, like vortices (plural of vortex), vertices (plural of vertex), and Kleenices (plural of Kleenex).

Both webcams went black tonight. I’ve heard rumors about them testing tonight, but that makes no sense because we haven’t seen any signs of trains arriving yet (and there’s no way they could hide them so easily). My guess is they are testing the lightning package.

They're probably offline so they can remove all the dangerous dented supports and replace them with slightly less dented but safer supports.
