Now for a fact we know it will be an intamin, and the coaster cars will look like 57 chevys. Now what's been going aroud is it will be a cable lift hill, a 300+ size drop, 81 degree drop, and a possible top hat inversion. The rides name that people (workers) are saying is "beach cruiser" Now hopefully this will come to Knotts, but what I can almost guarantee, is that it'll be a mistake, i mean it'll be a coaster by Intamin.
what do u mean its gonna be a mistake cause its a coaster by Intamin. Intamin have been buildings the best hyper and giga coasters anywhere in the world. they are better than B&M in the over 200 foot industry. if this does come true it sounds pretty cool. and the theming possibilities could be great. but Intamin has not let any of us down yet with their coasters.
ok thats a water ride thats not a roller coaster by the number of posts you have made you are new to the forums if you were to search for any posts about Intamin coasters they are ranked the best. ------------- NEW - Phantom's Revenge Video at G-Screams http://gscreams.cjb.net
I would have to agree with beastnum1......Intamin hypers and gigas are great. I have yet to hear anyone not like one of these creations. Do I detect a little jealousy that Knott's is getting some better rides.....sfmmrider???
Well considering that it is coming from a person who calls "Parlous Plunge" the "Dumest" ride....I don't believe it that much;) ----------------- Ricochet: Bouncing to you in 2002, Only at King's Dominion!
After 2 deaths within two months, Knott's needs some positive publicity. Intamin makes some great rides, and I can't wait to see that famous box track show up at Knott's. Perilous Plunge, while it's not a total waste of time, is not what I would call a great ride by any means. ----------------- What is hateful to you, do not to your fellowman.

No dont get me wrong I love all Intamns, but I have a feeling it will be a mistake at Knotts, and + yes it will be over 300 ft, possibly higher and faster than Millenium Force, and I think Parlous Plunge is worse than Windammer, anyone that lives out in the area, go in the very back in the middle, its so rough now!
sfmmrider, could you please tell us why you think "Parlous Plunge" (Perilous Plunge) is so "dum" (dumb)? I've never ridden it and I would like to hear both positive and negative reviews. Please tell me and I'm sure the rest of us are dying to know.
Sorry about my bad spelling, but I was in a rush. I think it's dumb basically because its a 10 second ride. If it were like Buzzaw Falls, it would be SO much better. Now ever ince they re-did it, it seems to be VERY rough. I really think Knott's should take it out, and get a flying coaster there
I dont know of any flying coasters that would fit in the Perilous Plunge area. Perillous Plunge was a tight fit. And i have been on way way way way, worse water rides then Perilous Plunge. ----------------- welcome one and all, y'all come have a ball! Things a bear-y fine, ridin' on the old knott's bear-y line!

SFMM RIDER, have you ever gone on PErilous Plunge? If you haven't don' talk shinizit about it. It's THE best water ride ever made. It broke like 5 records. It's NOT 10 seconds long. Here's just 2 of the facts that KBF e-mailed me about it. There are a ton...
TIME AND SPEED: Time: 1½ minutes Top Speed: 50 mph or 13 feet per second.
That's A LOT longer then 10 seconds. Wow, you must really be stupid if you want that ride to be taken out. BTW, it also is not the dumest ride in the world. You don't even know how to spell dumest, it's dumbest.
Its 10 seconds after the lift hill. Plus it is SO rough now. You guys must be the only ones to like it, because even during the weekend no one even goes on it. The one on Screamscape is not all correct about the height and speed
