Also, the flume is GREAT! The line for it moved fairly fast.
I would highly recommend eating the Knott's famous fried chicken dinner. It was so much food there was no way I could finish it all!
I'm pretty positive you won't fit on Xcelerator though.
Do NOT miss the following (i.e., non-coaster fans will LOVE these, mostly already mentioned): *awesome* darkride/flume hybrid, Calico Mine Ride, and the stagecoach. Not too many places around where you can ride a stagecoach, and I'm mostly amazed CF has left it operating this long. Sky Cabin is something they also might enjoy (cool, relaxing, and a great place for pics).
thrillerman1 must've hit a really bad day for Calico Mine, I've never waited more than 15-20 mins to ride, and never seen 1-train operation when there was ANY line at all.
Finally, as a certified (certifiable?) Carousel enthusiast - don't skip it! Dentzel-mania... :)

EDIT: BTW, Calico is totally worth it. I had no idea what it was and was pleasantly surprised. It truly is a unique ride that I've never seen at any other park. *** Edited 6/25/2007 6:53:33 PM UTC by halltd***
I didn't get to any shows at Knotts, but they can't be as bad as the ones at Waldameer. No offense, I love Wallyworld, but . . . blech.

This is the most recent thread I could find, and I figured with Easter just around the corner it was the perfect time to resurrect it.
The Meyer clan is headed out to the west coast in less than 50 days, and Knotts is on the agenda for one of the days (not any day in particular, just whenever it "feels right"). I'm too young to have an actual bucket list, but this is definitely a place I have always wanted to go.
We're staying in Huntington Beach for a week about a block from the pier, but none of us have ever been here. We're lovers of seafood, live music, and the place we are staying (VRBO) has provided bikes for the four of us so we can do some exploring.
So given all that, any advice about the park or the area in general is greatly appreciated.
P.S. And maybe someone could finally answer Zongaboy (above)? He's been waiting 15 years for an answer. Assholes.
