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

If I told you all that a backstage tour of "Calico Mine Train" was one of the tours "in discussion" how interested in that would you be?

 

No guarantees as of yet even we can even pull this one off, just putting feelers out there of what people may be interested in.

As I said somewhere else, having this tour just might sway my decision to do the Knott's part of the event. (I'm wavering on it because I'm strapped for cash). But it's starting to look like WCB is going to bring to Knott's what Solace used to bring and what made it fun for the first few years.

I'm interested, it's indoors, and usually dark, so you'll see a lot of cool things that you havent before. Plus, it's one of only a few rides there that would have an interesting backstage tour since it's inside a mountain. That would also help sell me on the idea of going to Knott's (although the only reasons I may not go are money and homework).

If this backstage tour was offered in addition to Xcelerator ERT I would definitely do the Knott's part of the event. My brother said that either this or the old Kingdom of the Dinosaurs area would be the best backstage tour, but I don't know if there is anything left of that ride anymore.

Would definitely sweeten the deal for me.

Definitely interested in that!

I was basically thinking I'd choose one of the parks since I can't justify spending on both. But with the possibility of a Calico Mine tour, I am now leaning away from SFMM and toward Knotts. But I do wonder what I'd miss at SFMM that hasn't been announced yet.

Please note that the tours at Knott's are not confirmed yet. We are working through challenges of how to get a large group of people through an attraction or part of an attraction like Calico Mine Train. And it may or may not happen depending on a number of factors.

 

Just getting feedback on it though is very helpful in making it happen.

^ Even the fact that it is something you are trying to get makes me give a big thumbs up to this whole operation.

 

And I'll just throw this out here for kicks - how about a tour of the old KOD building? I know they removed most of everything. But it would still be quite interesting.

I too am leaning more towards the Knott's portion now. If I can pull off the cash, I'll be doing both parks, but if I'm strapped for money, I think I'll be attending Knott's. And yes, I am very interested in a Calico Mine Ride tour!

A Calico Mine Ride and/or Timber Mountain Log Ride tour would be awesome! I should have a head count and be registered some time before the end of the month.

Gold Rusher is much better than Pony Express. Pony Express is my least favorite out of the 60 coasters I have rode. It is the only coaster I have been on that, when it was over, my first thought was that I didn't enjoy it.

I just thought this was funny because no one ever says anything about Gold Rusher. But I've always liked it. And, BTW, it'll be 40 years old in just over a year.

^Ah, I thought it was late 70's, oh well, it still really holds its age nicely sometimes. But yeah, Pony Express hurt to much, but I also don't enjoy Ghostrider...well it's impossible to feel any emotion after it because it renders you temporarily paralyzed from all the spine crushing it deals.

^ GhostRider's situation is sad because it was so much fun when it opened. It just went to crap. For me, Pony Express isn't rough or uncomfortable, it's just too short. Great concept and decent theming, but poor execution.

I don't find Pony Express uncomfortable. Just short and boring. There are kiddie coasters I have had more fun on. The Canyon Blaster at SFMM is a better ride. If Pony Express got removed tomorrow, I wouldn't care at all. I still enjoy GhostRider, although it is very rough.
