This ride totally rules. I road in the very back and as we were going over the lift, it jerked a little (i was leaning on the lap bar) so it caught me by surprise. The drop was totally awesome, as well as that heavily banked turn near the end :lolr: Kind of reminded me of X :airtime:

i rode the sierra sidewinder yesterday
i underestimated it it goes pretty fast for a camp snoopy ride and the spinning on the cars makes it super fun

but yeah at the top of the lift hill the whole train jerks a little before going down
other than that i think knott's made a good decision in adding this because its intense but family friendly

another thing:
i noticed the cameras on the car
i think they wont be able to take very good onride pictures because of the awkward angle the camera is at
i guess we'll have to wait and see

I know quite a lot about Donkeys!

It looks to me like a very wide angle lens, so I think it'll be alright.

Hi, just curious. Does your keyboard not have a "Shift" key on it? Please read our "posting rules" in regards to using correct spelling, grammar, and...um...oh yeah CAPITALIZATION!!!!

Thank you!

Rode this on Thursday, while I do realize it's a new ride and all, the queue was full and with two trains, it was still a half hour wait. It's a fun little ride but I feel it's one of those rides you ride only at night and with a 20 minute wait or less.

I opted to wait for the last row since I knew it was going to be my only ride for the day (literally, I drove home right after) and the lift is pretty steep. The jerk at the end of the lift can be quite painful for taller people. I'm 5'9" and still managed to hit my knee, and it hurt. The car spun a few times in the beginning, but I ended up facing backward for most of the ride. It would be a much better ride if they added a little bit more. It would have also help pad the ride time to avoid keeping the second train stacked for so long. The cool thing is the trains readjust themselves free of the station, so you don't even have to wait to be in the station to get back into (un)load position. I'm sure that cuts down the wait time dramatically.

Overall it's a great ride for families with little ones and a perfect fit for Camp Snoopy. Good job Knott's.

I love donkeys more than me.

^^ I got to be honest, no capitalization really doesn't bother me, so I just found it funny that you picked it up because it didn't really register till you said something. Because then I looked back and I was like, omg, he's right. Heh, imagine that. :Pr

Anyways, we're going to have to call Sierra Sidewinder something other then SS because it could also be Supreme Scream. I suggest we shall now forever refer to Supreme Scream as just Supreme, or call Sierra Sidewinder "Sierra"
