Knott's Berry Farm begins to erect Xcelerator...Again!

Posted Monday, March 25, 2002 10:03 AM | Contributed by Karl DeAngelo

Knott's has been busy this week. Xcelerator went vertical once again. Much of the launch track has been placed, along with the station turnaround. Vertigo has been dismantled and now lies in storage. Finally, Montezooma's Revenge has reopened from its refurbishment.

Check out the photos at Twisted Rails and Americacoasters.com.

Alright, so looking at the pictures of XCelerator on www.twistedrails.com it looks as though the train comes down a slope, breaks, turns around, and then is in the station, is this correct? Then, is the launch right out of the station?

Probably because it's Karl's site. But it doesn't matter. Way to go SoCal Iron Workers. That was fast.

No, it launches from the station, goes inot the over-the-top, then an overbanked turn, another overbanked, then a slope down into breaks and turn into station.
