^ I think they should keep it on the boardwalk. I rarely see the sky tower run.

I think the original site planned for Windseeker is the best place for it. The Sky Cabin is old and needs to go. It's hard to imagine it in Fiesta Village; it would really cramp the area in my opinion.

Yesterday was GhostRider's 12th birthday, and I'm proud to say that I rode it at 7am on its opening day. Brings back memories of how it used to be.

I was driving there the other day and was thinking how cool the Windseeker will look from the freeway. The sky tower would be cool the keep if it was running right, but if I'm not mistaken, it got stuck two or three times this past year.

Could someone tell me where the catawumpus thing is located. Everytime I visit the park I spend an hour looking for it.

I'm glad to hear that Knott's is participating again this year!

It completely wore me out last year going from super late SFMM ERT to super early Knott's ERT/tours... but it was totally worth it. I had a great time at both parks. And this year we should actually get to ride Xcelerator at Knott's. =)

^^ This is GREAT news!! :airtime:

In other news, apparently Knotts is testing out a front of line pass this off season according to Screamscape. For $40 you get to skip the line ONE (1) time to the majors except for Jaguar, Montazooma’s Revenge and Xcelerator. Now, I realize this is a test, but really? $40 to go to the front of the line of Pony Express? Sounds like they are trying to copy something from Sea World where they offer two types, a one at each ride and done, or unlimited. Hopefully they will test other types of butt in line passes as well, because while some people will pay the extra cost on a really jammed out day, I'm just not seeing the value.

In my experience, Knott's is very rarely crowded enough to the point where a front of the line pass is necessary. With the exception of rides running one train, Sierra Sidewinder, and Pony Express, I've rarely seen more than a half-hour wait for anything in the park except on a summer weekend or holiday period. If the pass doesn't include Xcelerator it's value drops, and if it is only good for one ride each it loses value as well.

Given how few rides actually get long lines at Knott's, I think it would be better for them to go with a ticket approach. For $5, you get a ticket that lets you skip the line on any one attraction from a list (say GhostRider, Silver Bullet, Xcelerator, Supreme Scream, Perilous Plunge, Montezooma's Revenge, Sierra Sidewinder, Pony Express, Boomerang, or the Log Ride). This way, people could decide how many tickets they want to buy and use them in whatever way they wanted.
