The Knott's Berry Farm (KBF) Discussion Thread

P. 630: Knott's Scary Farm 2021 mazes and shows revealed!

Recommended Posts

I stopped by the park for a couple hours today to get an update on Windseeker. The entire tower has been removed from the ride site and moved across the street. Here's the couple pictures I got today...

Peeking through the hole in the construction walls

It's hard to tell, but you can see the poles sticking up where the base of the tower stood

All the parts lined up across the street

They were loading the tower pieces onto separate trucks throughout the day

Now that Windseeker is officially gone from the parks lineup, it means that Knott's hasn't added any type of thrilling ride since Silver Bullet (which will be 10 years soon). If I could guess, I'd say that after the Camp Snoopy and Calico revamp, they'll have to put in something thrilling, right?

How long should it take for this to assemble once it arrives at Worlds of Fun?

 

Based on the timeline for Windseeker at Carowinds:

 

6-8 weeks for the construction and curing of the footing.

 

When they got the cranes setup and started assembling it, the crews took about 3 weeks to get the tower up then another 2 weeks to assemble the rest. I think they spent about 30 days testing it here.

If the park really does consider a new dark ride, I hear the old Kingdom of Dinosaurs building is still unused. If they can gut out the entire interior, another full sized dark ride can fit in that spot. No need to continue removing rides.

 

Windseeker spot can fit something else. I hear the park had some murals/models sitting around that were removed when Silver Bullet was built. Maybe bring those back in a new sitting/relaxation area.

 

- Or better yet. Parachute Jump: the Sequel

A lot of that space was used the the HVAC system for Johny Rockets. The building could possibly still be used, its just smaller now, and aging.
