Jim Disney, the webmaster of westcoaster.net, has claimed to be in the know about Knott's Berry Farm new attraction for some time now. Jim is very adamant about both letting everyone know he knows, and keeping quiet about what it is. The later being understandable considering his position, whether he really knows or not.
More information, similar to this, was posted on the ultimaterollercoaster.com message boards. Shortly thereafter, Jim Disney made a couple of posts expressing his frustration by stating, "Why can't people keep their mouths shut when asked to do so?" Followed by, "I just wish people would've respected the park's wishes a little more instead of just flappin' their jaws!" (I recommend you read the posts yourself so as to ensure each quote is taken in the correct context.)
Ok, does this mean that these bits of info/rumors are correct? No, of course not. Does this mean that these bits of info/rumors are even "in the ballpark"? No, of course not. Could these bits of info/rumor be near or on target? Yes, they could! Why Would Jim Disney denounce leaking information if this was nothing more than simple rumor mongering? By his own admission, all kinds of rumor-mongering takes place on westcoaster.net, most of which never gets admonishment or deletion. As suggested on URC already, any acknowledgement of this info/rumor other than to discredit it's accuracy appears only to reinforce it. Combine this with the limited factual information from the Jack Falfas interview and it certainly is in the realm of possibility.
For once I wouldn't be surprised if this stuff was somewhat accurate. Remember, all of this is nothing more than observation and speculation on my part. Normally I would dismiss this this stuff just like every other rumor, I'm as skeptical as they come. I am of course, The Anti-Rumor.

Who cares? Until Knott's announces, it's all boring talk anyway.
I'd like a tall CCI out and back, and a grande nonfat Latte to go please!

I also posted it on his board and it was removed in 15 minutes. Hmmm.... I wonder why. The context of your quote of Jim is pretty much on the ball. I hadn't seen that, and it sure seemed he was po'ed!
ALso, when you think about it...
It puts to rest the Hyper, the LSM, and the Box Track.

Maybe the problem is the better sites don't like rumor mongering (and that's what it is until the park makes an official announcement).
