^^ Wow. KoD has been closed forever and they're whining. At least the Maelstrom idiots were losing a ride that was still operational. :roll:

I can't wait to ride this! Not a whole lot of details about the ride system yet but it seems like this is different from Wonder Mountain's Guardian in that it's a more traditional dark ride style (a la the Sally Corp dark rides) with everyone facing the same direction rather than back to back. I'm sure the vehicles will be on a swivel, though!

Very excited for the new dark ride, I think the concept art looks amazing. Knott's did a first class job with the TMLR and CMR renovations and it sounds like Voyage will be on the cutting edge of dark ride technology. I also like that the ride will incorporate the existing Knott's rides into the story and not just be some random underwater excursion. I was really encouraged when I read about Ouimet's 5 year plan for the Knott's and I think this ride will be a great addition to the park. Hopefully a killer new coaster and another slide complex for Soak City are next parts of the plan, but I trust that Ouimet and Raffi will continue to make the right decisions for the park.
Coaster Count: 208 Last Coaster: Superman Krypton Coaster
Top Ten: 1) Superman:TR 2) Millennium Force 3) X2 4) Skyrush 5) El Toro 6) Twisted Colossus 7) Maverick 8) Lightning Rod 9) Mako 10) Storm Runner

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

This looks wonderful. Kingdom of the Dinosaurs was my favorite ride at Knott's growing up. I'm so happy to see what looks like a worthy successor take it's place after all these years. Did people honestly expect them to bring back Beary-Tales or KOD?

Also, the octopus art makes me nostalgic for Hammerhead. Am I the only one? :lmao:

Too bad the Kraken wasn't tearing down Windseeker in this photo ;)

So wait, what's the confidential announcement at IAAPA going to be after this was already announced?

Also, I love the art design for this ride, hopefully the actual video and themeing matches that quality.
Read stuff I write (mostly about NorCal happenings) over at Coaster101!

I'll be the first in line to buy a full-size poster of those tentacles wrapped around Supreme Scream and Sky Cabin.


Same here! It has a very "Sharknado" vibe to it! I would love it if they sold this art as a wall poster or print! I'd also like to see them do pins inspired by the art, like maybe Supreme Scream with a tentacle around it and the Iron Reef logo at the bottom of the pin (yes, I collect the Knott's pins!).

Also- does this art remind anyone of Seaside Heights in New Jersey (still too soon)?

Nope, you're not the only one! I loved Hammerhead, and I wish it was still there! It may not have been necessarily popular, but in my opinion it was one of the best themed flat rides!

I remember that there was a fountain at the base of Hammerhead, and after it closed a couple of the mermaids were moved to Perilous Plunge (and were then removed when that area was redone). If Knott's still has them, it would be cool if they found a new home inside of Iron Reef!

These are the mermaids I'm talking about- they were part of a larger fountain when Hammerhead was around.

Another mermaid (and a fish).

I kind of felt that "Voyage to the Iron Reef" was sort of a spiritual homage to the "Kingdom of the Dinosaurs" name in a way. I'm probably just reading too much into it.


The important thing to note is the word "wind" is nowhere in the title. :lmao:

When does the construction for the underground show building start?

I'm really excited for this ride & I have to love that picture of Kraken attacking the Boardwalk. Saving Knotts from monsters sounds like a blast, especially it being four minutes. I'm sure this is a ride I'll want to ride over & over again.
