Knott's closes rides in California's power crisis

Posted Saturday, January 20, 2001 7:12 PM | Contributed by Skyboss01

Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park, California announced yesterday that it will be closing Big Foot Rapids, Perilous Plunge, Hammer Head, Tumbler and the Skycabin in an effort to reduce its electricity use. Additionally, rotational closures of other rides will take place throughout the day. This announcement was made this morning on the radio stations in LA County, and it will remain in affect until the power issues are resolved in California. Disney will not be shutting down any of their rides due to a "sweetheart" deal with the City of Anaheim, which provides them power at a reduced rate.

Knott's was briefly mentioned in The Orange County Register.
