The Knott's Berry Farm (KBF) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Can anybody tell us what HangTime's colour scheme will be? In the illustrations released by Knott's the supports look to be white or light grey and the track looks to be lavender or purple. Yet I read one news story that states it will have silver supports and a light blue track. In none of the official renderings I have seen do the supports look remotely silver.

 

Haha. You may be colorblind if this doesn't look Light blue and silver to you. To be fair, it's a little hard to illustrate the reflectiveness of silver.

 

 

I see no lavender/purple... Like at all, lol.

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

Toughest mask mandates in the country for months and months. When will masks start working? 

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

Actually I am colour blind within certain colour palettes. I get mixed up when it comes to various shades of blue, green and grey, and sometimes red and brown. To me green traffic lights lights look blue for example, but since I can tell the difference between red, yellow and blue/green I can have a driver license. Also I think that my favorite navy blue shirt looks purple, and I once bought a suit at a second hand store that I thought was dark grey but was actually green. Fortunately it only cots me $5.

It does, it's just horribly inaccurate. I used it on Sunday and all the backstage mazes were listed at 0 min waits. Nope, most were around 30 with the exception of Trick or Treat which was about an hour and a half.

 

Damn an hour wait on a Sunday? Guess I know where I'm headed when the rope drops at 7:00 on Friday!

That would actually be something good to lead with when asking about colors

Sorry for the bad image quality, but on the left side of the image it appears that the track is for Hangtime. It looks like a very light blue color.

I don't have a source for the image, due to it being a screenshot of another picture that I haven't seen previously.

On the real though does Knotts have Xlerator driers as opposed to Dyson airblades (version 1 or 2)?

I doubt anybody here knows that. I mean, not to say we're not nerdy, because we are totally nerdy. But we're not that nerdy.

i know that i believe the first place i saw the xlerator dryer was when the Friday's first opened outside of Knott's.

End of the line for Montazooma's Revenge and/or Xcelerator? I'm really starting to wonder. Monty has been up and down all summer and now it's down again. As for Xcelerator, it has been down TBA for several months now. Word was that they were waiting for a part to be made overseas and that they hoped to have it reopened by next spring. Now there's a rumors that the park has confirmed it will indeed be down for a loooooong time. I guess we will see.

I don’t think Xcelerator has ever been down this long (besides the infamous cable snap in 2009). Hopefully they get it up and running soon.

 

Initially I was optimistic and thought the ride would be up soon and just had some maintenance issues, but it’s not looking any better 3 months later. That really sucks for Cedar Fair, especially with TTD simultaneously being down as well.

Any word on whether of not other Intamin acceleratirs have been having issues (outside of CF)?

So IF MR is reaching the end of the line . . . . what replaces it?

 

And as for Xcelerator . . . . it's situation is sort of like with I305 a couple of years ago (down for several months because of a part being made overseas)

Good question. Do they take the easy road and go with something small and narrow like a Sky Rocket II or S&S FreeSpin? Or do they think big and use that space just for the station for a much bigger ride? Maybe that ride could bridge over LaPalma and into the north parking lot. Or here's a crazy thought. Maybe Jaguar has run it's course as well and they remove both rides and run the new ride over FV. Time will tell. For now I'm sure they're focused fully on HangTime.

Where are these "overseas" parts coming from? Yes I know Switzerland is "overseas" but I assume that's not what people mean. I heard that these parts are having to be made special by third party "aftermarket" manufacturers. Is this true? If so is this because of the rumored tiff between Intamin and CF? Is it really so bad that CF can't get parts straight from Intamin?
