The Knott's Berry Farm (KBF) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

^Well, if they do build a coaster, it could be integrated into the area like it was when it was under Windjammer (or was that wipe-out?) no matter what ride, it can be integrated into the area even if its the coaster. Which also means it would probably be permanent as long as the coaster doesn't get removed, lol.

Not to derail this thread any further, but a huge part of the problem is there not anything actually tough about them. They exist, and some businesses (like Knotts when they were open for all their fo

It would be great to see the scrambler make a return as the Boardwalk seems to have the smallest number of family rides out of the park's five areas. Putting it where Perilous Plunge was would pretty much return the ride to its original home (I believe it first operated there as Whirlpool). If they are getting a coaster, it could easily be built above and around the scrambler. If they're not getting a coaster, then it would be great to see a splash battle or similar in the lake and a couple flat rides on the land portion of that terrain (the scrambler and maybe a flyers and/or a compact thrill ride such as a Top Scan).

^ I bet it is pretty scary once you realize something is actually wrong but as long as you don't blow it out of proportion I think it is not really such a terrifying experience and horrible accident that the news makes it out to be. I know they are only doing their job but they really hype these things up.

I don't understand how this could be headlining national news. Local news, sure, but national news!?

 

Directly form NBC's news report: "There were no immediate reports of injuries, Luong said.

Knotts Berry Farm is using its own maintenance crew to handle the malfunction.

Orange County Fire Authority firefighters were not called to respond to the malfunctioning ride, OCFA Capt. Marc Stone said."

Must be a really really slow day today.

There were about 5 helicopters there around 6:30, they got it down between 7:00 to 8:00, not exactly sure when though. My mom officially hates me going on that ride now, but I told her it would be kinda cool to be stuck up there, just not for 3 hours.
