Knotts Visit (no pictures sorry)

Recommended Posts

Well, yesterday wasnt too bad. Got in alot of rides on stuff i'd never been on before. We arrived at the park a little after ten and went straight into the park because we had already bought tickets. We rushed over to silver bullet and waited 2 minutes for the back row. After that we went over to Xcelerator and rode without getting off, then walked around and rode twice again without getting off. Then we went to supreme scream and waited for about five minutes because they only had one tower open. Id never been on it before and so i had tons of fun and absolutely loved it. After that we headed over to boomerang and got on almost right away. The ride was still as bumpy as usual and it was just the same old boomerang coaster. After that, we went to check out perilous plunge but it was closed untill the afternoon so we went on riptide. I have to say that that ride was terrible. It flipped us three times and they didnt even have the water spouts turned on. Then, to make things worse, they had like, ten seats open on both sides and the rest roped off. It was a terrible ride. Then we went over to the wilderness scrambler and enjoyed having our stomachs jostled around a little bit. After that, we went over to Bigfoot rapids and waited a couple minutes for them to add the rest of the boats. Overall, we didnt get too wet untill the end. Then we went over to Silver bullet again and rode one more time before going to Ghostrider. We waited about 10 minutes for the front car on the copper train. I could barely get off because it felt like my back broke. Then we left the park to eat at The chicken place and went back in. We then rode Silver bullet in the front row and went over to Montazooma's for a quick ride. the Montazoomas was running amazingly, going almost to the top of the back spike! then we headed over to Xcelerator for another ride. As we came off Xcelerator, i saw perilous plunge running so we went over and waited ten minutes for that. Its terrible and boring now with the new boats and over the sholder restraints and the splash is just pitiful. We then went over to the log ride and rode that. Same old same old log ride. After that we went to supreme scream for another ride. Its really fun when your at the top waiting for the thing to release you. Then when it does, you are just floating in the air. We then proceded to Silver bullet for another ride in the back row and then moved on to ghostrider. I rode one time on the gold train thats brand new and really smooth compared to the copper one and then everyone else i was with went on the copper one one more time. Riding on the gold train reminded me of when the ride first opened and i went on it. It was really fun.

So the gold train on GR is much smoother?


I know what I'm gonna do tomorrow. I'm gonna yell at the ride op until he lets me on the gold train.


And if the gold train still hurts like heck, I'm gonna be mad. Real mad.

I'll keep that in mind, as I am testing it to see if it still hurts so our whole party doesnt have to be in pain. I'm going tommorow.



Sounded fun!

Great to hear Ghostrider is running good again! I remember getting the sh** beaten out of me sitting in the back row this July. Xcelerator is still the best ride Knott's has to offer, and I don't see how you didn't like the rehab on Perilous Plunge. I thought it was good, but not great.
