Ghostrider is now closed for bi-annual maintenance. It is scheduled to reopen just before the Solace event.
Also, with the closing of Kingdom of the Dinosaurs the park has moved so of the ride's theme elements and effects [growling wolves, moon & stars] and spruced up the flume. It looks fantastic and more work is in progress.
Knotts is open 353 days a year. Ghostrider typically runs at least 300 of those days. That makes it the most-operated woody I can think of. Is it any wonder that twice a year, just before maintenance, the ride is a bit rough?
Moosh, Gwazi (kinda) runs that much....if you add up the days that Lion runs and add in the days that Tiger runs, it probably works out to be even a little MORE than Ghostie...;)
Ghostrider, for me, is far and away the best wood in the chain...and one of the best *chain woodies* in existence. :)
Timber Mountain....don't tell the IoA peeps I said this....has the best THEMING of any log flume ride I've done. The ride itself is lackluster, SFMM has the good RIDE flume(s), but KBF themed theirs out *to the nines*...
