It is my partner's and my 2nd year Anniversary. So we wanted to do something in the Spirit of the date for fun to celebrate!

It might be a bit crowded considering that it's the last night of the event. I went on a Thursday night and it was pretty packed. I would say get ready for a descent crowd.

I don't know...the festival in WeHo might be too juicy for people to pass up for Knotts
"...and SuperKing, the best one of the three!"

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Halloween is traditionally one of the LEAST busy days of Haunt, especially if it's during the week. Parents are taking kids Trick or Treating, many other once a year parties (like in WeHo) and by this point pretty much everybody who's wanted to go has gone.

Halloween is pretty much the hard-core Haunt Fans. Should be a fun night, I was hoping to go.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Thanks for the responses guys! I have my fingers crossed. With 12 mazes (13 including trapped) It is just a lot to do in one night.

I cannot say for sure, but I am making a guess that "CoastRider" will end up being the name of whatever coaster KBF has planned next. While I think it is a bit cheesy, it seems as if it would be a fitting name for a hyper/giga (if that's what they're getting.) It will be interesting once the dust settles from Haunt if they do make some kind of an announcement even if the actual ride opens in late 2013/early 2014 as they did with Silver Bullet.

Knott's Berry Farm Announces Coast Rider roller coaster

Additions to the Knott’s Boardwalk Area will include:

• Coast Rider
The 52 foot ascent to the top of Coast Rider will have everyone clinging to the handrails for the ultimate family coaster experience. The adventure aboard the ride gives guests the feeling of riding the California coast, but once they reach the crest, it is a harrowing journey down the 1,339 feet of track filled with hairpin turns, twists and spins.

• Surfside Glider
Taking the ride into their own hands, guests will pilot their own Surfside Glider. From a height of 28 feet, these two-man aircrafts zip through the air providing a bird’s eye view of the Boardwalk area as they glide over Boardwalk Bay.

• Pacific Scrambler
Everyone will be caught in the spin of the Pacific Scrambler, a family favorite and traditional Boardwalk attraction.

Ride Manufacturers:
Coast Rider: Mack Rides
Surfside Glider: Larson International
Pacific Scrambler: Eli Bridge

This looks to be a great addition to the Boardwalk area. Taking out 1 ride for 3 (well 2 I guess since they are moving the Scrambler again?) is always a good trade-off.

LOL!!!!!! They did it again! At least there appears to be grass and water involved and not so much cement.

Looks like a Mack wild mouse clone, similar to Matterhorn Blitz but without the double-elevator.

*Yet* another family coaster for Knott's... :roll:

A family coaster makes more sense for Knott's than some behemoth giga coaster.
