Hey everybody!

This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Knott's Berry Farm, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.

I really fear that Monte's days are numbered. As well as Boomerange...but meh...Boomerange is a frickin Vekoma so who cares :lol:
I would like to see an impulse coaster were Boomerange is now! I think that would be a good addition to the park and it would look great in that location also. But it might fit better where Monte is right now :cry:

There was a rumor that there was going to be a flying coaster coming soon where Big Foot Rapids is now. But I feel as if that rumor is pretty BS myself.

KOD was dead to me when they connected the cars and had a cop in the back seat.

I heard a rumor that KBF would add a Morgan Hypercoaster as their next coaster, as KBF is the only Cedar Fair park that doesnt have a hyper coaster, unless you count Xcelerator, and I dont. If this is true, it will probably open 2007/2008.

All I want to see a GOOD coaster at Knotts! :P

Fri Feb 25, 2005 4:53 am

^Wrong, Michigans Adventure and Geauga Lake also does not have a Hyper.

Fri Feb 25, 2005 5:30 am

Also, do they have the room for a hyper coaster? I have never visited but from pictures I have seen from above, the park doesn't seem to have alot of room to expand to because of its urban location. But I agree with the Impulse. I think it would look brilliant at Knotts.

Fri Feb 25, 2005 6:50 am

no more KOD? aww.. I loved that ride when I was 8.. lol.

Fri Feb 25, 2005 12:08 pm

Yeah...I could really see them taking out Monte to put in an impulse or something like all the other Cedar Fair parks have...You just have to hope they won't!!

As for a hyper, they have plenty of room! Look at places like Blackpool or Morey's Pier! Look at the way they put Silver Bullet it...plenty of room for a hyper...I really hope it's not a Morgan though!

Ok, as I said, I have never been and from picture the park looks pretty full up.

Tear it out and make a direct airport to Orlando.

Fri Feb 25, 2005 8:23 pm

I agree that Knotts has room for an Impulse without taking out any rides. It would go between Ghostrider and Bigfoot Rapids. However Knotts would have to take out a ride if they wanted ANY Hyper at the park. Just Please just DON"T TAKE OUT MONTY!!! Boomerang is fine with me though.
