Bud Hurlbut, who created some of Knott’s Berry Farm‘s centerpiece rides, died Wednesday. He was 93. Wendell “Bud” Hurlbut worked for years with Walter Knott, the founder of Knott’s Berry Farm. There, Hurlbut designed and built the Calico Mine Ride and the Timber Mountain Log Ride — two attractions that, decades after they were built, remain among the most popular rides in the park.
