janfrederick's avatar I'll mention 1 and let others mention the rest. I think the Calico Mine Ride is really neat. It's a train that winds in and around a fake mountain with waterfalls and fake goldminers. It's one of their oldest. Similar to Timber Mountain Log Ride which is along the same lines, but is a logride instead of a train.
Yeeee Haaawwww!

Here are my 10 favorites at KBF:  GhostRider - CCI woodie with EXTREME air time in back seats; Supreme Scream - tower drop ride - VERY tall; Montezooma's Revenge - launch shuttle coaster; Boomerang - just as the title suggests; Perilous Plunge - VERY STEEP flume ride (with boats, not logs); HammerHead - whirl and hurl ride similar to RotoShakers in European parks; Big Foot Rapids - river raft ride; Timber Mountain Log Ride; Calico Mine Train Ride; and Jaguar! - fun, family steel coaster.

janfrederick's avatar Jaguar is a pretty unique/cool ride. However, I don't really like the paint job. Guess it goes with the theming though...speaking of which, it sports the most clausterphobic queue out there. (or should I say "in" there)
Yeeee Haaawwww!

Ghostrider - a CCI wooden coaster

make sure to sit in the back

Supreme Scream - the world's tallest Turbo Drop

if you're not scared out of your mind (which you will be) try to get a seat on the outside you can see pretty far

Perilous Plunge - world's tallest and steepest water ride at 121 feet and 77.8 degrees

sit in the front if you want a little view but sit in the back (doesnt have to be very far back) to get launched outta your seat

Montezooma's Revenge - best maintained shuttle loop, has no brakes (until the end of course) and gets almost to the top of the tower every time

Jaguar - scary for kids nine and under but still its pretty good for a kiddie its themed very well and like that other guy said it has the darkest and most claustrophobic queue

Boomerang - pretty good if you like boomerangs

Hammerhead - Zamperla Roto-Shake (always seems to be closed when i go there)

Tampico Tumbler - this ride is kinda hard to describe, it has some arms (dunno how many) that spin around the center and each arm has two cars attached to it that spin over each other vertically its pretty good except it takes a long time to load since they have to make sure noone is carrying anything

Wilderness Scrambler(formerly known as Headspin and Whirlpool) - standard scrambler

Wipe Out - a wipe out ride (like in the movie Sandlot)

Bigfoot Rapids - an average rapids ride, no drops :/

thats all of them i can think of right now

Do they have a frisbee though?

no they do not have a Frisbee.
Wednesday, September 19, 2001 6:37 PM
Sorry, but KBF does not have a frisbee. The only park I know of in California with a huss frisbee is SFMW.

Hey Mr. G-Lix...
Ride Ops on Supreme Scream don't appreciate people using their ride to dry off!!
I have actually heard ride ops on the ride complain about people who just went on plunge dripping off the Supreme Scream towers.

Knotts Halloween Haunt!!
29 years and still screaming.
