^ I doubt they would ever want to pay tribute to the nightmare that was Windjammer

There is no such thing as a donkey punch.

Hmm...not the most space in the world, need to go over a midway perhaps, need something unique and marketable...that can fit in a tight place...

I've never been on one of those rides. Are they super nauseating?


From my experience they are suprisingly not nauseating. I guess it's because you don't feel like you're experiencing a lot of repetitive motions.

A zonkey is a cross between a zebra and a donkey.

It's probably that and the fast speed of the motions that contibute to no nausea im guessing since surprisingly the HUSS Boosters aren't very nauseating either, and they also share those features.

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

My bet is on a Dive Coaster as well. I can see it wrapping around the sky tower as part of its run. I think the wave theme would fit in great as well. Got my fingers crossed!!!

What's with the donkeys anyway?

Why does everyone think it will be a coaster?

There's a reason that a boomerang is in that spot. It's doesn't take up any space. Nor did corkscrew. Unless they're getting rid of that building next to it, there will not be enough room for a coaster. Much less a massive dive machine that takes up 2 car rides and an apatheater of space. (CP)

The problem with a 200 foot coaster is you need enough room to kill the momentum. And Knotts just doesn't have the space.

Sure they do. Think outside the box.

What about something like Pusar? It would be a nice homage to both Boomerang (forwards and backwards) and Perilous Plunge (huge water ride with airtime). It would also fit nicely in the small space, while still fitting with the theme of the Bordwalk.

Xcelerator is 205 feet and they kill that momentum without any issue. You can apply brakes to any speed.

Silver Bullet takes up a lot of space, but most of that space is over midways and other things.



Knott's can fit just about any coaster into their property if they are creative about it.
