The Knott's Berry Farm (KBF) Discussion Thread

...Or maybe CalOSHA just knows the average Californian would never be able to use it safely?

 

Californians, more specifically the average Knotts attendee

 

 

Still a shame though, for what it was worth, I enjoyed windseeker and it never had a very long line all the times I rode. Lets see what else Knotts comes up with. My vote is Beer Garden! Mexican beer for everyone!

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

Hey maybe we can get the Hammerhead AKA the Zamperla Rotoshake to replace it? Okay maybe only in my dreams...

 

Haha! I'm actually all for this! I'm probably one of the few people who actually misses Hammerhead! It's better than Riptide if you ask me!

Count me in as someone who also misses Hammerhead. I absolutely loved that ride. I hate Riptide.

I think they should put one of the Mack Twist and Splash rides in the old Windseeker spot. One, it would fill the void of another water attraction left by Perilous Plunge, two, they could theme it to Fiesta Village pretty well, and three, it would fit right in with their collection of family rides. IMHO, they really should consider getting another "big" coaster within a few years, be it a Wing Coaster or the long rumored Hyper Coaster.

On Friday, spokespeople from Knott’s Berry Farm and Worlds of Fun confirmed that the Knott’s Berry Farm WindSeeker would be moved in the off-season to Kansas City, where it will begin service at Worlds of Fun, renamed the SteelHawk.

 

I guess we all better get our last rides in at West Coast Bash

 

We can all marvel over KBF's concrete ornament for a final time anyway next weekend

 

I never got to ride, but I'll get to marvel over it for a second time next weekend. I didn't get to it on my last visit to the park during Halloween Haunt 2011. Oh well, I'll eventually ride a Windseeker at Cedar Point (if its still there when I finally visit Cedar Point).

That would be open about as much as Windseeker...

 

Did it have a lot of downtime? I was probably 11 or 12 when it closed so I don't remember too much about it.

I was wrong, just checked Zierer's site and those Tumbler rides are not even mentioned on the Products page. I know there is still 1 in the USA at Mall of America, and a few traveling around Europe on the funfairs.

so hard to keep up on these threads ill just continue with the current topic. Definitely upset about Windseekers sad existence @ Knotts. Hopefully it can enjoy a better life at WoF. In the mean time, I wouldn't expect much in replacement since Windseeker was awkwardly placed anyways

Another flat ride that I actually kind of like--too bad they're so tough to maintain.

LOVE those Zierer Hexentanz rides! Grew up riding and awesome indoor one at West Edmonton Mall that interacted with the Mindbender. Sad they are so hard to find now

Hopefully they have better luck with it in Minnesota.

 

Edit: Just realized, I mixed up Worlds Of Fun and Valleyfair. Should have said Missouri.

While I'd love for something else to go in the spot of Windseeker, it would be interesting if they replaced it with a Star Flyer model and played it off like nothing happened. I wonder how many people would really notice a change, considering how many comments I've heard about Apocalypse being Psyclone and such.

 

It really is a shame that so many mature trees had to be removed for Windseeker, only to have the ride removed after a short stint. Perhaps the park will green up the area a little more with whatever its replacement is.
