The new roller coaster, Pony Express was open and running pretty decently when I looked at it. I received a boarding time for 2:35 (40 Min.) and headed off to some other rides.
Jaguar had about a 15-20 minute wait so I boarded that.
JAGUAR-20 Min Wait
Rode the back of this coaster and loved it. There is such a nice amount of whip time on this coaster, and I love how you can slide from side to side in the seat. Still it's missing some airtime hills. 8/10
I headed over to board the Pony Express, but found that it was closed, since it was a new ride I decided to wait it out.
PONY EXPRESS: 45 Min. Wait
For a motor bike style coaster, I did not know what to expect, this is my first experience on one, and was relatively enjoyable. I must say that the ride was entirely too short however. It would have been much more enjoyable with some airtime hills or the like. 8/10
Next ride I headed to was the Silver Bullet.
SILVER BULLET: 20 Min. Wait
This ride is extremely jerky and shaky. Also I am so used to the classic B&M roar, that it was weird not hearing that. The only leg up this ride has, is there are really not hard brakes at the end. 6/10
I was walking around in Camp Snoopy area and hit up a few rides over there.
JOE COOLS GR8T SKATE: 15 Min. Wait
This was surprisingly a very nice flat ride and I enjoyed it. I understand being in a children's area this ride was designed for children, but I believe Knott's would benefit from a bigger and longer one, with less jerky brakes. 8/10
TIMBERLINE TWISTER: 10 Min. Wait
The only coaster I hadn't rode at Knott's. I was surprised at some of the whips and airtime on this coaster, for a coaster in a children's area this was a very nice coaster. 9/10
Overall at Knott's I was a bit bored and found nothing extraodinary like I did last year. 70/100
