The Knott's Berry Farm (KBF) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

I feel bad for those that haven't experienced TC racing....ive ridden it 20 tines probably and I'd say it's raced....wait I can only remember 1 time I got burned on a race for both laps...probably raced both laps 60 percent of the time...guess I'm just lucky

 

you're a unicorn! haha i've never seen it duel even 20% of the time. but i also probably have a different opinion of when it's actually close enough to call it a duel. a train that isn't even touching the next one isn't a duel to me. since basically there's no interaction. it's just close. which, it is probably 60% of the time, i'll agree that that is possible. i don't know how many times i've ridden, but i have like 2 dual, duels. i may have 20% a single duel. just guessing but it's not that much. many close calls though. sometimes it looks to be perfect, then that blue side does that hesitation at the top and screws it all up.

 

i savor those WCB and media shoot duels that i've gotten to experience.

 

btw, crossing my fingers for something decent at KBF since i'm so close to it.

Really? That sucks! I've ridden it at least 80 times, and I can only think of a handful of occasions where it didn't duel at least once. As of late, I've noticed a bit of an uptick in close calls on the lift hill, but that's almost always because of riders goofing around and the crew resigning themselves to the fact that there's little they can do to fix the issue. I haven't been to Knotts this year (my pass expired), but I visited a lot last year and saw far more apathetic employees than I do at SFMM these days. I always found the Xcelerator crew to be pretty enthused though, which I always assumed had something to do with getting to watch riders freak out prior to the launch.

Idk, probably at least one of each...in the summer months we'll typically be at the gates at 6-630....get a meal, hit a ride or 3, walk around, bounce

I'm only going to say this once...

 

We will be posting the announcement tomorrow as soon as the materials are available to us.

 

PLEASE DO NOT POST ANY LINKS OR IMAGES TO THE ANNOUNCEMENT BEFORE TPR DOES!

 

Anyone who does this will be banned forever from Theme Park Review.

 

Let me explain...

 

Posting the new ride information before we can do it actually creates MORE WORK for us as most of the time people who come on our forum and post info about a new ride will do a crappy job of it and then we have to not only do the work we are going to do to make a proper post about the new ride, but also clean up the garbage posts that people make.

 

No one here will get any extra points or look any "cooler" for being "first" to post the information. We aren't about being first we are about having good quality content. Please respect that. Thank you.

Maybe it's been said and I missed it but, what time is the announcement tomorrow?

 

I haven't seen an actual source, but I've heard around 7pm

 

Dang that's later than I was expecting!?

 

Well, if it's themed to surfing as we expect, about what time are prime surfing hours? Alternatively, it could be time to give the other announcements of the day some breathing room.

Three and a half hour media event and dinner, the City of Buena Park not releasing its monthly building permits list, a wall up around Coast Rider.......all for a half-pipe? Knott's has played everyone like fiddle. Worked us like garden tools. Pulled the wool over our eyes and fooled the world. It ain't no half-pipe.......something big is going on...mark my words.

I'm kinda bummed the announcement is in the evening as opposed to the morning like all the other parks. I'm looking forward to this announcement most, simply because we basically already know what CP, KD, CGA, and SDC are getting. I have absolutely no clue what to expect for Knott's; we have had no hints, leaks, anything.

^You're one of the few who seem to think it was going to be a Surfrider/Half-Pipe Coaster.

That was sarcasm. I do not in any way think it's going to be a half-pipe. That rumor was started by the coaster-net guys after they had to finally admit Knotts was getting a coaster. It literally has no merit.
