^1) I think especially in SoCal, more people go alone to parks than you’d think.

2) SR can also be used for groups who are willing to split up.

Hello TPR Forum Members!

Knott's Berry Farm has contacted us about needing riders for an upcoming video shoot at the park! Here are the details below. There are a limited numbers of spots open. Please contact the park at the email address below and we hope you make it in time to be added to the list!

Details:

Knott’s Berry Farm Roller Coaster shoot

Wednesday, January 23rd
Estimated Check In: 9am
Estimated End Time: 4pm
Requirements: At least 48 inches in height, riders MUST keep hands down throughout ride.
Attire: Family friendly; no visible logos, text, etc on any shirts or other articles of clothing.

Volunteers can email PR@Knotts.com and we'll send them more information on Monday.

All we ask is that the riders keep their hands down throughout their ride and be able to ride any roller coaster at Knott’s possibly several times in a row. In exchange, we can offer each rider a pair of tickets to come back to Knott’s on a later day.

Double post (my apologies), but it looks like Knott's Boomerang is getting relocated to Indonesia.

Perhaps because, if well maintained and/or have good trains, they're solid rides that deliver 6 inversions, at a low price.

I guess I need to ride more Boomerangs then. The only standard Boomerang I've ridden is the one at Six Flags St. Louis and it sucks, so my opinion on Boomerangs is low in that sense. I guess with new trains it's a good bargain

Yeah. I agree that the bad ones can be bad, but the good ones are pretty good. If you end up in Wildwood don't miss Morey's. Despite the old (original?) trains, it rides better than any old-school Vekoma should. Same goes for their SLC.

I agree with you on Nor'Easter, but Sea Serpent sucks just as hard as all the rest.

Boomerangs aren't worth it. Even if you manage to find one that isn't completely terrible, it's still time you could have spent riding something good. I could have ridden Boomerang at WCB 2016, they had ERT on it, but I spent ERT on Xcellerator instead. Zero regrets.
