Here's some random night shots from Taste of Merry Farm.   Camp Snoopy looked the best at night, imo.  I guess I like the lights up the trees thing the best.      The Bear-Y Tales

The rumor was they also wanted the county to be in the "yellow category"  OC is still far away. Source for below: https://covid19.ca.gov/safer-economy/

Rumor is there are some high up California government peeps out in Florida, checking out the parks, and putting something together for your terrible governor who hates parks!

Someone needs a grammar lesson.

Wasn't it call "The Grand Slammer" or something like that? It WAS a fun ride

So basically, like I was saying, I think a Zamperla Air Race would be a good replacement for Wind Seeker. Another possibility could be a HUSS Mega Jump. But than again, its nearly impossible to predict a flat ride.

He could be referring to Tampico Tumbler, which (at least to me) was also fun. Don't know if Zierer still makes the Hexentanz model or not, or if it was even a reliable ride.

Yep, it was Gran Slammer! That was one of my favorite flats! The area where La Revolucion is now was once occupied by Gran Slammer and Tampico Tumbler.

 

On a side note, I mentioned this a few pages back, but I'd LOVE to see Hammerhead return as well! If I recall, TPR recently saw it in person, and it's just sitting there, not operating! I know it was a maintenance nightmare, but I feel like if anyone could get it up and running well, it would be the staff at Knott's!

I remember riding Gran Slammer multiple times! I fell in love with that ride...offered nice tummy tingles. I believe Gran Slammer was a Chance "Falling Star" ride.

 

Tampico Tumbler was a funky-looking ride but was also quite fun! Sadly I only rode that one once. I do remember riding the Roto-shake (Hammerhead) quite a few times as there were no lines for it.

Ok given all they have to work with is the old Windseeker space and that they wont move anything even though I think they could do a small eurofighter what about a Maurer Sohne X coaster or a ride like Superman at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom?

If that was the case, they wouldn't have sold the ride in the first place...

 

Nor does the ride serve a purpose, as they already have a similar style ride in Rip Tide.

Well, that's true. I did hear that the park that bought it did work out a lot of the maintenance issues, though (obviously I don't know for sure).

 

Though I did prefer Hammerhead over RipTide only because the rotation style was different. Whereas RipTide focuses on front flips and back flips, Hammerhead did some unusual movements in addition to the front/back flips where you sort-of rotated on your side...a slow transition from being upright to upside-down! Not that the GP would be able to tell if they were both in the park haha! Honestly another thing I loved about Hammerhead was the theming. I still think it was one of the best themed flats out there! But then again, I'm sucker for anything with an "under the sea" or ocean theme!

I will always remember Hammerhead for having the extremely uncomfortable lap bar/harness that was a nut cruncher.

 

I'd like to see a giant version of a Top Scan in that spot..

Haunt on Thursdays is manageable w/ Light to medium crowds. You shouldn't need Fastlane/Fright lane at all and you'll still be able to do all major attractions plus Haunt mazes. I would suggest getting to Mirror, Mirror first as it is a low capacity maze and even with light crowds will still have a 30-45 minute wait. Thursdays and Sundays are the best days to go to Haunt.

10-15 minutes. It's variable because it depends on how long it takes for the park to be cleared of daytime guests.
