Welcome! You're really getting to see American culture there. We are for the most part self-entitled and inconsiderate of others, and that trait comes out worst at theme parks.

Was at the park last night and decided to sit and watch the light show on Hangtime for a bit. I noticed something that seems to back up some of what I have seen people saying on youtube about the ride. You don't always experience actual hang time on Hangtime and for the first time I think I actually saw why....The trains don't go thru at a consistent speed each time. I'm assuming it's a weight thing, or maybe how the train is released at the top of the drop, since it isn't one particular train that always goes faster, but about half the time those trains absolutely race thru that course. The other times they slow over the top of the loops and give great hang time. I get that most coasters are probably gonna move faster or slower under various conditions, but this is the first time I've ever noticed a ride where the speed so clearly varies from one ride to the next.

I'd say that speaks to the culture of California not the rest of the nation.

No, I say it speaks volumes for the entire country because it sucks everywhere... it just happens to suck a bit more in California! :lmao: :Pr

i stopped in to knott's to get at least one ghostrider ride in before it goes down for maintenance. it's actually been a while since i've ridden since the line is always long and i have no patience being that i live near by. happy to report that the Brazilian hard wood must be doing it's job. i really can't say it feels any different than when the ride was retracked.

the park was a bit more crowded than i thought it would be. maybe because of it being monday. still one train waits for hangtime and xcelerator. ghostrider was a few trains.

looking forward to west coast bash!

some knott's wildlife near pan for gold...

I went to the park today for about 3 hours. The log ride was the only ride with a line today and it was possibly 10 minutes. I had a one-train wait for Ghost Rider during my several rides. I was able to stay on Hangtime in the rear row for 3 laps straight because no one else was waiting. I would suggest people visit either Thursday or Friday this week so you can get some rides on Ghost Rider before it closes next Tuesday for repairs. The park wasn't weekday in October dead, but pretty dead none the less. Most of the coaster were being deployed with empty rows towards the middle.

So this happened. I booked day tickets for Friday, September 21st and accidentally booked 2. Any non passholders who fancy going that day, PM me. I also booked the full hotel + scary farm/frightlane package, mercifully only for one. Wallet is screaming lol. Bring on late September!

Will Ghostrider be back in action by then or is it down for the season? :wtf:

can't get a refund for the extra ticket?

as long as everything works out as they have planned, Ghostrider should be open on the 21st.
