I really like the idea if it's going to come true. Sounds like the perfect marriage of dark ride and coaster. Would also work for the Donkey Kong cart idea at Universal the way sometime the carts would turn and face each other.

I don't know, never been on that rollercoaster.

The picture has a lot of shadow over the coaches, simply i don't know.

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

Yes, those appear to be Knotts' cars.

They took all the chassis off the track except for the bare chassis where I posted pictures yesterday.

The individual coaches of Knott's Berry Farm (Boomerang), who were still standing by the container yesterday, are no longer present on the site. I assume they are inside to work on.

The intermediate coaches (I call it "weight coaches") and the last coach with chassis are at a different place on the test-site, near the spike of the track.
