LOL, that cabin queue is pretty livable, I'd say. And yes, it obviously looks like you can't appreciate all of the new stuff they've done, to the sides of the waterway. Depending on how you're spinning and turning, heh. But in your video, I did see several people seeing a few of the animatronics in action. Like that wolf, howling.

Great shots and video, thanks for sharing. :smile:

Gyeongju World has an interesting system in that the water park has a back gate that leads directly into the area of the theme park across from the splashdown boat and it becomes a water park ride during the hot summer months and the rapids and flume become the only water rides for the theme park guests,

That line queue looks interesting. Very fitting with the Knott's Berry Farm old west theme.

Some excellent design work on the part of Knotts and Holt on this makeover.

^ So was it true, that sometimes these things "backfired"
spraying water on the unsuspecting culprit? i.e. Yourself?
Or did you not see this occur while you were there?

Great shot, by the way. :smile:

I visited yesterday and yes, I saw it occur. It is a very small spritz of water (imagine a squirt gun), so it won't "soak" you. Just a small surprise for some of the smaller kids messing with it!

In general, I loved the revamp. Operations were excellent (the entire queue from under the entrance sign to loading took 50 minutes). Part of this is because there are no real "cattle pen" areas of the queue, which is very nice for theming and keeping guests entertained with scenery. It all looked very well put-together, especially the log cabin portion of the queue. I'm glad Knott's did this and it was long overdue.
Steel: 160 / Wood: 31 / Total: 191
