PTR: 2 days and nights at Knott's


Recommended Posts

So it was my buddy's birthday on Thursday and he wanted to get the crap scared out of him so I took him to Knott's. We decided to go during the day and ride all the rides and then hit up the Haunt at night. All I have to say is thank god there was a TGI Friday's near by...I'll let the photos explain the trip

 

Please wait to comment till all photos are uploaded...Thanks!

There Bob goes again...taking pictures of nature. Seriously...WTF

029.JPG.7ca759a669f05a80e3ca4933292309fe.JPG

Oh my god! The ride ate their bodies and only their legs are left!

028.JPG.3c1652fd8c0e28ea3bf9f526953b0626.JPG

Well, actually it's RipTide time...and we were the only three on the ride cuz Bob was too chicken to do it

027.JPG.8b23f5cc03e101204468101180650580.JPG

You know what time it is? It's nature picture taking time

026.JPG.0d871791cbe8fc2a9df177697ef43a2e.JPG

Gotta love that first drop of extreme woody goodness

025.JPG.9e8222d7497dfaf831a12d60e65a5114.JPG

Bob likes wood

024.JPG.ccf54384d95af3cd7cc58fb7bc5d0e28.JPG

For those of you that don't know...GhostRider is a woody

023.JPG.7a38f447866a132ae4d16bbfe753187e.JPG

Going up zeee lift hill with a full plate of SUN in my face

022.JPG.f4f5511c98b0bc7050d82366de5604a9.JPG

So we head back to Knott's and hit up GhostRider

021.JPG.10ac80f5dc0c176e0f6624f458f5a162.JPG

This is our waitress Catrina and the birthday boy...Catrina rocks and hooked us up and had some drinks with us (hopefully her boss doesn't read this site)

020.JPG.7fe6bd9772afbc310f1da6018d160040.JPG

We decided to take a break from Knott's and head over to TGI Friday's for some "birthday drinks"

019.JPG.3119488ccddfed84db5a5616d1ab8531.JPG

We enjoyed Silver Bullet so much we decided to show it some love...Our stains might still be there

017a.JPG.a681e727592ff89076222b65bf561dbf.JPG

So here's the "forceless" part of Silver Bullet...*cough* NOT *cough*

017.JPG.628e560da4083b4e5ab0cf0fc6ecaf01.JPG

My turn to yell randomness while going through what Knott's employees call, the "half inversion"...WTF

016.JPG.9974c205c5dc28a32f1efd33c64284e8.JPG

Bob still yelling random stuff going through the loop

015.JPG.d219149d180600cf7351ca9656568316.JPG

Here's the freaks...Bob is yelling random stuff in the front, Lou is angry cave man, and Ryan is like "Yay it's my birthday!"

014.JPG.1bbba49d2eb8c3438e7969087a8126ea.JPG

Vertical Loop goodness...YAY!

013.JPG.7219283d9f04cf0484e6aceca6322ad9.JPG

Next up, Silver Bullet...forceless my @$$

012.JPG.b5f8a79d8f99d550c8d7fbd65a0ddae3.JPG

But then Lou and Bob ruined his wish as they got in the car with him

011.JPG.871889f034ef0f1578f3680dc42d588b.JPG

Ryan got a birthday wish...it was unlocked

010.JPG.5aa37cca3120c78ec05319b3be51d68b.JPG

So then joking around we decided to see if one of the cars was unlocked...

009.JPG.c891292e790238325ebf70b73f2db55d.JPG

Ryan likes touching hot rods

008.JPG.d9ab9d16c229cd5f45ca9fb7da3c1f11.JPG

Gay Pride Car...Helloooooo

007.JPG.91d6e3113f1b878daa21aaf76232f168.JPG

Time to look at hot, sexy cars...oolala

006.JPG.5d41f2a23a50ad6f6ada0eca8b1f95d6.JPG

Or assume fetal position, grab the front of the car, and point at random flying objects works too

005.JPG.e54e7285a98d227d72bf6bd5af61d3ca.JPG

Smile for the camera!

004.JPG.c79b53a0684dab4223db605633108430.JPG

YAY! People are having fun...WEEEEEE!

003.JPG.25316090ed0620d931944c0f4502670a.JPG

Oh Xcelerator...you look so hot right now

002.JPG.0bbb930427d3ad7e19c31952d72f0094.JPG

First things first...head to Xcelerator and get our ride on

So since Bob chickened out on RipTide, we strapped him into the Screamin Swing and Supreme Scream...He hated us for that. But here's some more pics...enjoy

092.JPG.0ee029ef1b243989ae26be6fb1eaa643.JPG

So after an extremely unproductive and uneventful night at the Haunt, everyone headed home while I headed to Dougie's house

046.JPG.51933f56b3ae2939536150612e6045e8.JPG

Here's the gang left to right: Me, Cave man Lou, random yelling Bob, Freak-O Jessica, birthday boy Ryan "Silent K", and Ryan's sis sassy Sara

045.JPG.f3c9adc45f2e674f70b8383b944a750c.JPG

But we all got wet

041.JPG.653f7f763d659abb8d8dd451e7267251.JPG

040.JPG.2da9dae6ecfc01b52b613af69af562fb.JPG

Did I mention we didn't ride Boomerang?

Bob doing his best job at pretending to surf...Barrels!!!

038.JPG.4ecd5c525fa6ffc074b2ab926c16cccf.JPG

...so he passed as we rode it another 5 times without having to get off

038a.JPG.6d9c9c862e39792c0871430afadbb03d.JPG

To dry off we rode Supreme Scream, Bob pooped his pants the first time he rode it...

037.JPG.0e4f201ad0d47a7c25803be00c3ef1ed.JPG

And then a wave decided to come over the entire raft and soak us all

036.JPG.4e5954c0fe7dee5e8ad2e96c37bf756a.JPG

Ryan screaming like a little school girl

035.JPG.815825ef7fc0d3660eae25f82049cd19.JPG

So we didn't see any shows and only made it in 4 mazes on Thursday night I decided to go back on Saturday night with my buddy Doug (some may remember him from my credit whoring Trip Report). Saturday was sold out and extrememly packed but we still got in all of the mazes and saw all the shows...here's some pics from Doug's and my travels...

082.JPG.5a2c915dead22d57489f9a7e90b26fe4.JPG

While Doug decided to get in the car Ryan found unlocked 2 days earlier...still unlocked

074.JPG.56ce48a084206ec28d98b4a6701f18fe.JPG

I decided to take out my anger on a whack the crap out of a poor defenseless noob game

078.JPG.238d3d77886e3412e0e53b27b1a937a9.JPG

Extremely wet...I ran off the bridge after I took this picture and mowed over some little kid...but I didn't get wet!

077.JPG.8b6df57f81f9239451b956d64b085e83.JPG

Doug got his reach around credit for the day

073.JPG.f3ce0811b5fce94825f5402634a5a4ed.JPG

Wetting myself made me hungry...so I ate Bigfoot's Meat

072.JPG.d8a3b2ff124b3d5b382cb84977b4a542.JPG

I was so excited on Bigfoot rapids I wet myself

071.JPG.399232a7f6eec1a1b2faba75109b31bf.JPG

Yeah, that's water coming into the raft

069.JPG.509a1e1cc2a35b2d575ab57a6d7959e2.JPG

And there you have a horseshoe. Exciting? It only took him about 2 mintues to make one

066.JPG.f3e69b3241e0ffd269f5bda97733ac7b.JPG

...then you create some steam from the hotness...

065.JPG.d4f89bd7f4cf6afa6574f1bbf6b161b3.JPG

Here's how you make a horseshoe. First you heat 'er up...then you wack it

Time for GhostRider...or should I say time for a kidney punch

058.JPG.46ca941a4b6ee7c1e003ed06e28e39eb.JPG

This is a ride...I totally forget it's name...it's on the tip of my brain...Oh well, i'll call it a spinning twirling flat ride for now

059.JPG.42a70ac71b13e934013c23f11d54d835.JPG

We ate at this place for lunch that I didn't even know existed in Knott's...the Ghost Town Grill. Awesome place and I recommend it to anyone that goes to knott's.

 

Here's some more pics...enjoy

089.JPG.91b2ff8959418417b32060d554e5834e.JPG

088.JPG.11639e70ca19526de5c3935032549a80.JPG

Looks like an S&S freefall ride...oh wait...it is!

086.JPG.f752d4c01b857ebbe7a7636009101cbf.JPG

Looks like an Intamin freefall ride...but it's not...just the Sky Tower

085.JPG.ee03e3d52d740422e37a066be3c584f7.JPG

A snapping turtle! All the way from Busch Gardens Tampa!

Finally some Haunt photos...after a boring Thursday night Saturday was much better. Even though it was sold out and soooper crowded we still hit almost everything. Haunt was very good this year and the mazes were scary as hell. Going through 13 Axe Murder Manor with your eyes shut and having someone guide you is the best experience if you want to piss your pants. Dead Idol was my first ever experience with American Idol stuff and it was awesome (mainly because the person playing Paula Abdul had a couple nip slips when she was dancing )

 

Enjoy the pics

109.JPG.0a5fd791a362221c567289baa980611b.JPG

Last show of the night was Marty Putz...freakin hilarious. Totally go see this guy if you haven't already

108.JPG.1b764b70e697e1bfa3e8e0b788277e9a.JPG

Silver Bullet through it's corkscrewed goodness

107.JPG.f9e1b1e035f507b07130c179ac2aa147.JPG

Angry cave man Lou likes his pig (then I got yelled at for taking that picture because it was inside a maze)

106.JPG.619f7cea1b2d75ee9b412ed1f326ebb1.JPG

Xcelerator with the black sky as it's back drop...Sexy and devilish at the same time

105.JPG.698682b71415cfe205d45de8f54b4645.JPG

Silver Bullet at night, purty aint it?

104.JPG.98e9effec24d337e75dbe84e4e719ee1.JPG

But Freak-O Jess and I kept ourselves busy by making faces at the camera

103.JPG.3c2041c2097ef85333c7be087fde986b.JPG

You can't really tell from this picture but if you've ever been to Knott's and know where the Feary Tales and Asylum maze is, this is the line...near the entrance to GhostRider (in other words...LONG!!!)

102.JPG.0691cc56d2e689352247ee07589257fb.JPG

While I was looking for another maze to go to, a "talent" stole my map and then made a paper airplane out of it...pretty entertaining since it took her like 5 minutes to make an airplane

101.JPG.bec4dfa7000e9ab9398ebc25364eea7c.JPG

Then we found the Beer Garden...yes Derek, this is beer so stop drooling now

100.JPG.4b5cca12be020abb8fd84dfb808403f7.JPG

Oh yes, time for the "Hanging show". This year's show wasn't as good as last year's but it was still awesome. Jack Swallow's and Britney red neck Spears made the show

099.JPG.2b85b9765b896beb9e1eb52c548a98fe.JPG

This is what a tall steel object looks like at night

098.JPG.2e93d1927b4e39b8f0d0716adfb7f697.JPG

Rachel and I saw some interesting hairdo's while waiting in line...is that a mullet? or is it a tail? WTF!

097.JPG.5b8f94b28370e3a9f00749633480ae34.JPG

Great Pirate Maze near the front of the park...the best part was the midget pirate at the end...everyone loves midgets!

096.JPG.90077142e038384fd9efb5a0f3252520.JPG

Hello Xcelerator at night with the Buena Park smog hovering over you

095.JPG.f4dcb1a8d46325b6bbb540f79e4174aa.JPG

At least we had entertainment with us...Doug blowing up an inflatable hammer and then running around hitting people with it...great stuff

094.JPG.73e962f7992fd94c390dbe899bea8e4e.JPG

Let's back up a bit and see then crowd...Yeah, that's at 8:30 pm and there's still a line into the place!

093.JPG.21bf22733d8456778bfb1fed5b430ab8.JPG

So here we are, Haunt time!

Sorry I jumped the gun, honest mistake!

 

Knotts sure does get busy when the lights come on at night for Haunt, you did well getting everything done during the day. And what is with that smog?!?!? Must have been a bad night for driving!

 

I'll be sure to let you know when I'm down in San Diego!

BTW thats not a snapping turtle. IT looks like a regular painter. Do a google for snapping turtles, youll see they are quite the little (rather large) prehistoric looking beasts. I saved one from being ran over on the road and raised him up over the winter then released in summer. Wicked little things.

 

 

Nice TR.

Supreme Scream is 256 feet tall and you only drop like 5 feet because S&S towers kick that much butt.

 

And as for the snapping turtle...thanks for the animal lesson for the day...i'll be sure to keep my sarcasm to myself next time.

 

Non German Tom, let me know when you're here and we will cause chaos.
