From funnel cakes to Boysenberry juice to being held up on the train to Camp Snoopy, all of us probably have favorite memories of the little gem in Buena Park, America’s First Theme Park, Knott’s Berry Farm. Knott’s will soon unveil their huge new expansion in the Boardwalk section of the park. Crews are busy at work prepping the new area for it’s grand opening Memorial Day Weekend. Here is what’s coming:
Coast Rider: This brand new roller coaster will have a 52 foot ascent and a fast drop along 1,339 feet of track filled with hairpin turns, twists and spins. It’s a wild mouse coaster taken to new “heights!”
Surfside Glider: Guests will ride to a height of 28 feet in two-man aircraft and zip through the air, all while being able to control the back and forth movement. It’s a classic amusement park ride that will be a perfect fit down at The Farm.
Pacific Scrambler: You may recall last seeing this by Bigfoot Rapids at the Wilderness Scrambler. It’s now returning almost to it’s original spot when it was known as the Whirlpool.
This area will look beautiful at night!
Can you tell how excited Snoopy is for all of this new stuff? All of these new attractions are family friendly.
The Coast Rider was assembled in about a week by a crew working at night, which allowed the day crew to continue preparing the concrete work for the other rides.
And just when you thought all the Boardwalk fabulous was enough, Knott’s is also updating the Timber Mountain Log Ride. This classic ride, which is the first ever fully themed log ride attraction, is getting some loving care. This includes replacing all of the human figures with new animated figures as well as many of the animals.
The picture above will soon be featured in the part of the ride seen below.
There are many other surprises to be seen in the updated Timber Mountain Log Ride. Come see it, when it reopens on May 30th!
Knott’s Berry Farm has always been a great value for families looking for a day or even a season of fun. Consider picking up some season passes and for a few bucks more, get Knott’s Soak City included with it. This could be a summer the kids never forget!
