Knott's begins ground preparation for Xcelerator

Posted Sunday, January 20, 2002 6:22 AM | Contributed by James Disney

Knott's Berry Farm has finally started the preparation for their newest roller coaster, Xcelerator. A large footer is being dug as well as markers and paint showing the turnaround into the station and support areas. The park has also taken delivery of more launch track and supports.

The Disneyland Resort is also covered as they continue a few rehabs and the construction of A Bug's Land and Tower of Terror.

which isn't that accurate... sadly... needs work, especially the run back into the brakes and the turn around into the station

Does anybody know about how long this ride will be?  Just looking at the designs, my guess is about one minute.

From launch to brakes... I give it 40 seconds, and that's generous.  It'll be a fast ride!

The reason the model on ACN has the straight section is because that would be a position for a block brake, without it, 2 train operation would not be possible. That is why i added it there.
