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

The rumor was they also wanted the county to be in the "yellow category"  OC is still far away. Source for below: https://covid19.ca.gov/safer-economy/

Rumor is there are some high up California government peeps out in Florida, checking out the parks, and putting something together for your terrible governor who hates parks!

Also, I would like to note the crappiness of the concept art and I have to wonder who the heck hired that guy?

 

Concept ART is not always all about the accuracy ya' know.

I dig the name, much better than another Woodstock's Express. This things "late" opening at least has solidified my plans to skip Solace next year in exchange for finally coming out in October and doing Haunt.

In addition, it's just a simple artist rendition.

 

Gnome, FYI, artist renditions of rides are not meant for an accurate detailed depiction of the ride. It's there to serve as a simple visual as to what it will look like in its surroundings or in other cases, highlight the focus-point of the ride, such as in Scream!'s 2002 artist depiction.

Disney always seems to do a good job on thiers, and I wasn't thinking accuracy, I was thinking about the general shaping of objects.

Hmm... looks pretty good for a family coaster...

 

The concept art makes it look like a bigger, spinning Gadget's Go Coaster to me...

 

Oh well, another credit!

Sorry guys but I think we are dealing with a kiddy coaster. I live in So Cal and know that camp snoopy is the kiddy area of the park

Try viewing page 6 and you will see how much kiddy coaster this is not!

 

Also about the concept picture and missing things, who gives a crap!! It is just a concept painting! Which I might add is to show how the new coaster may look like. Not to get accurate and fill in every detail of the surounding area.

Who says kiddie coasters are not fun? Considering the specs of this ride, I'm going to compare it to a coaster at Disneyland. Space Mountain? Matterhorn? C'mon, Matterhorn is 26 MPH and Space Mountain is 35 MPH and they still pack a punch(or atleast an exciting ride). This ride is about the speed of Space Mountain. If the themeing is done well, and the track layout proves to be promising(which seems to be good), we can get an exciting ride!

 

I'm still thrilled for this to come out.

I would classify this as a 'Family Coaster'.

 

Ditto.

 

Anybody have the stats on Jaguar??? Does it go faster or slower than 37mph???

 

Could be an early indicator of a height requirement.

 

Question ... IF Jaguar is slower, can they possibly put this LESS than 48" and leave Jaguar where it is??? Or ... can we possibly see a change in Jaguar's height requirement.

 

Oh wait ... it's Knott's.

 

EDIT: According to Ultimate Roller Coaster Jaguars Stats are:

 

Height: 65 feet

Drop: 45 feet

Angle of descent: 25 degrees

Top speed: 35 mph

Length: 2,602 feet

Ride time: 2 minutes, 20 seconds

Trains: 2 - 30 passenger

 

Of course, it's really only 1 train empty, one train full.
