The Knott's Berry Farm (KBF) Discussion Thread

P. 639: Montezooma's Revenge major renovations announced!

Recommended Posts

Why do you think they didn't tear it down for Windseeker? Backlash. People rose up and Knott's backed down. Made up the landmark story.

 

I don't think the story was made up. People just reported it wrong on Wikipedia. Knott's made the mistake of announcing they were going to remove Sky Cabin for Windseeker and people got mad. They went to the city of Buena Park and asked about making it a historical monument / site. I believe the City of Buena Park told the group that they would need to get a certain amount of signatures to get it on an election ballot and probably pay some fees. it never made it to the ballot as it was probably dropped or failed to be followed through with the requirements to get it to a ballot. Meanwhile, Knott's found a way to refurb Sky Cabin and located Wind Seeker elsewhere making everyone happy.

 

You can call the City of Buena Park, Buena Park Historical Society and ask them for their current requirements if you still want Sky Cabin saved and think removal is imminent.

^ I don't know, Bill. This is California we're talking about. Their courts don't do anything that makes sense, and I know that because Californians say so. I think they could fully litigate this issue in minutes and force a private business to do something they don't want to with their private property. You don't understand the force of California's Coaster Enthusiast Butthurt Act of 1977, also known as Prop 35A Mark VI.

You mock but that doesn't change the fact that California has a history of stopping projects for reasons as ridiculous as an endangered knat flies over this property once a year during migration or this fence can't be painted because James Dean pissed on it once.

Okay, being serious here for a moment. Make fewer statements. Ask more questions. You'll be so much better off if you do.

 

It's free advice, and totally up to you whether you use it. But I'm throwing it out there hoping for the best.

I rarely post on TPR, I just wanted to see what the latest on the Boomerang project was. After reading the past few pages of this thread, i'm pretty sure I now have cancer.

 

Cancer of the common sense. It's a horrible disease. My thoughts and prayers to you and your loved ones.

There's no concrete info on the Boomerang replacement, but I've heard rumors of a Gerstlauer Infinity/Euro-Fighter coaster from a couple of places. But at this point, rumors are all that we have.

^Whatever do you mean? Looks like they are doing something with those lights on.

 

Obviously shining it at the camera so we can't see what they are doing. Otherwise they'll raise suspicions.

Monster at Adventureland is amazing, so if an Infinity is what CF goes with, it is an excellent choice!

 

If they do go with something similar to Monster, I just hope they build a dual-loading platform like TTD or Maverick and that they run 4 trains at a time. The Infinity coasters do look like a lot of fun, but they aren't know for their capacity. Gerstlauer certainly would fit the "renewed relationship" that Ouimet was referring to and a vertical lift hill would be a first for SoCal.

 

Also, Screamscape just posted that they are hearing that Knott's new coaster is going to be a Gerstlauer Infinity Coaster project. If this is the case, I'd like to see Knott's get a larger model with a 200ft or so drop.

An infinity like Karnan, 230ft drop is what you're talking about maybe, just add more inversions than Karnan. Karnan and Monster cost both around 9M. Karnan runs 4-16 passenger trains with 960/hr capacity and Monster 3-8 passenger trainswith 500/hr capacity. I don't see them going with a infinity like Smiler which was around 22M when you do the conversions. Smilers 14 inversions is a bit much.
