Knott's Berry Farm's new flat ride, La Revolucion, has opened in the Fiesta Village section of the park. Jaguar has been painted blue and orange, while Montezooma's Revenge is still in rehab.

In other news, cosmetic work continues on California Adventure's Tower of Terror. Elsewhere around the park, a stage has been set up for Super Soap Weekend, which will be held May 31 and June 1.

Let me post a premptive strike before anyone starts complaining about the colors. I just returned from spending 6 days near Puerto Vallarta...those color choices for Fiesta Village are spot-on, and I like them a lot.

So what, they may be spot on but theyre still BUTT UGLY. I mean more power to Jack with the painting and such, but uh, why does he feel the need to fidn the wierdest colors possible for all of his rides?

They certaintly seem to do a lot of repainting over at Knott's, I think the people over there whatch a lot of daytime Discovery channel.

I don't care Tumbler was a better ride and should have never been taken out

I quite like its color scheme.

Who is it that makes that particular variant of this ride?

It was designed by KMG

But was made and built by Chance Morgan.

That's only your opinion, and I believe others see otherwise. I find that the recent new color schemes for all the rides (Perilous Plunge, Montezooma's Revenge, Jaguar!, and Boomerang) are well suited, and brighten up the overall look of the park. Just because La Revolucion and Jaguar!'s display of colors is much too bright and energetic doesn't mean it has no ties in with its themed area or not. It brings out the energy of Fiesta Village. As for Boomerang and Perilous Plunge, "The Boardwalk" is all I need to say.

I LOVE the colors. The Jaguar's old paint job was my only complaint about Knott's. Good job!

While I was a little mad that Tumbler was removed, that thing was a nightmare for the park. I think La Revolucion it a great replacement. I just got back from the park, and it is a hit, everyone loves it, also it was just what the area needed. Too bad that 2 rides were removed, and 1 was put in.

However, I do have some complaints. The railings surrounding the ride are just plain, silver metal, railings. I think they don't fit in, and should be replaced with ones more appropriate. Another one is the fountain where Tumbler used to be. It is small, and dinky. I was hoping for a more decorative one along the lines of the one in Charelston Circle, there is a huge space where Tumbler used to be, all of the old tumbler property is nealy there, not much of it, if any was used for La Revolucion, so they have the room to put a large, elaborate fountain. Also the black and red paint (I think theose were the colors) used to paint the star in the plaza is looking bad already, it looks like it needs to be repainted already. Besides that, Fiesta Village is looking good.

Welcome one and all, y'all come have a ball!
Things a bear-y fine, ridin' on the old Knott's bear-y line!
