The Knott's Berry Farm (KBF) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

^^Yup. Greezed Lightening, aka Whirwind. Used to be on the spot where the scrambler and gliders on the Boardwalk are now, next door to the old Dolphin/Skate Show Theater.

 

Didn't know it still existed (barely). Where is that?

^ Do you know/remember where it was located, in the park? Am still curious about this ride.

 

It operated from 1976 until 1999 in the Roaring 20's/Boardwalk section of the park, it was removed for Perilous Plunge.

Come to West Coast Bash in early Sept. and enjoy as many re-rides on GR as you can stand, lol!

 

just a small warning, i didn't look last year, but normally, the week of WCB is often when Ghostrider is down for maintenance. the last WCB was the refurb year, and it closed the day after i believe. but i'm pretty positive in 2014 and 2015 Ghostrider was closed during WCB. hopefully, it will be open this year.

^ Yes, in 2016, GR stayed open for WCB, then closed down the next day, which was the Monday I went back to Knott's...and found this out.

 

So I agree with you, but this past year, there was no WCB, so Knott's did the maintenance thing with GR, whenever they wanted, in Sept.

Monday, Sept.12, 2016 ~ Grrrrrrrrrrrrr. I also didn't get the cap I wanted, as the chuck wagon

souvenirs shop at the exit of GR, was also closed for the maintenance schedule.

That vid has come great footage. Parachute Jump, Whirlwind, Whirlpool (indoor Scrambler--and still miss that Art of Noise soundtrack), Windjammer, and glimpses of XK-1, Hammerhead, Wacky Soapbox Racers, Corkscrew, and more! Brought back a lot of memories.

Wow! I am shocked. They hid those trains really, really well. They were nowhere to be seen on site! This is awesome.

 

I can't believe they're still advertising this as opening this summer when it is only the third week of February and it's testing...

It actually looks like it takes the course a lot faster than Monster to me. And I think that's a good thing.

 

For sure! I am actually surprised to see a train run so fast on it's first lap.

 

Although the train doesn't seem to make a complete stop on the holding brakes, so that may affect it?
