Check out the photos and ride reviews of one of California's oldest theme parks, Knott's Berry Farm.
Included are pictures of Ghostrider and the other coasters, including the defunct Corkscrew.

Cedar Piont is nothing with out MF. Come to SFMM and see whats happening. Just give us a Giga coaster and bam. CP out of the pic.
Goliath the king of Hypers -just what exactly is the problem with the layout of the site?- oh, I know - it's not the same as every other site! At least I can make a site without using ANY web publishers.

I like the site a lot, good pictures but not the highest quality out there. While I don't agree with some of your reviews I respect peoples opinions. The layout is pretty good and if you don't make it with any web publishers its darn good! Keep up the good work. I'll be sure to add your site to my links!

I take offense to the comment about the staff, especially when compared to Disney. It's not Disney's Berry Farm, so get over it!
Thats kind of evil about re-parking your car every 3 hours. Kind of sounds like a pain, not really worth 7 dollars to keep going in and out of the park...
The best seat in Montezooma's Revenge is in the back, because you get a nice view and a little airtime on the back spike, plus extra time in the loop on the way back. Front is good though..
In an unbiased opinion, the food at Knotts is not that expensive in comparison to some other parks. At Ghost Town Grill, the food is great and the prices are what you would pay at any restraunt outside of a park. Plus the boysenberry punch!
The pictures of Corkscrew are cool, there aren't too many of pictures of that around much anymore...
Montezooma's Revenge Count: 34
The Ghost Town themeing is great because Walter Knott loived ghost towns and in fact restored Calico near Barstow...which is like Knott's but with only 1 ride (choo choo).
Man...I was hoping that this "Hot" news article about KBF would have been some type of major announcement. Dang!
The site is cool and well done, regardless of what your opinions of the reviews are.
Did you go to the park on a weekday? I was wondering if light crowds were common during the week.
Montezooma's Revenge Count: 34
Anyway, thanks for peoples positive comments. What happened to Stealthmf5m3's comment??? It made me laugh!
Visiting and reviewing as many parks as I do, people are bound to disagree with me, especially when the park I'm reviewing is the only park, or one of a few that they have been to. Some people can't understand why I think a "Boomerang" is as appealing as my neighbor's trashcan!
I did not think that my review of KBF was that harsh, and I actually liked the park, but there was plenty of room for improvement.
The problem with the staff was on the Bigfoot Rapids. While it is their job to instruct people to remain seated and keep their seat belts fastened during the ride; the belts fasten with Velcro and kept coming undone! I do not appreciate being shouted out several times during my ride due to what I consider a design flaw. To add to it, when I mentioned this to the ride op at the station, he simply said "what do you expect me to do". I'm afraid that doesn't cut it. Incidentally, the same thing was happening with the belts to the other people on my raft. We all had a seat to ourselves and it is very easy to move around when you are not sat next to someone.
As for the food being expensive, I usually compare the price of Funnel Cakes, Dippin' Dots, and cans of Coke from the vending machines. I may be wrong, but I remember them ALL being more expensive than at SFMM. But I have better things to do that note down all the prices. Although I remember the cookies outside Ghostrider being $1 each - sheeesh.
Anyway, I'm going to "take cover" - I've just completed my Astroworld review, and it will be online in a few weeks!
