    After more than seven years, I'll be heading down to Knott's Berry Farm on Monday for a visit.

    So far, I've been told to do the new boardwalk, log ride, Xcellerator, the Calico mine ride, and Silver Bullet. Oh, and plenty of funnel cakes and churros. Any other notables?

    Definitely get Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner.

    I didn't have a good or enjoyable experience with Knotts back in 2009 so I don't have much advice :P

    Do the log ride at night.

    I don't care how long it is, just ride it at night.

    How was it? Should I order a specific plate?

    I'm assuming you get drenched, correct?

    I knew that.. :mellow:

    Well, to answer your question, Jon, no - you don't get drenched on the log ride. It's just a more interesting experience at night. I recommend you check out Xcelerator, Silver Bullet, Timber Mountain Log Ride, The Boardwalk, and don't forget the funnel cake.

    Nope... Knott's Log Ride is like the anti-Jurassic Park/Splash Mountain in that it aims to be more charming rather than its quest to make you wet.

    Trust me: for full, 100% enjoyment it has got to be ridden at night, or at least around dusk.

    The worst kept Knotts announcement has been announced. Garner Holt announced they'd be doing a Calico Mine Ride overhaul for 2014. not suprised.

    I went to Knott's last week. I loved it... they lack the budget og USH obviously but the park has its charm and if you love roller coasters but yet having some milder options this is the park for you. Plus food is so delicious...

    ok so Knott's announced 3 new family rides for Camp Snoopy.

    This seems great as some of the rides are good for replacement and i'm suprised that the speedway is going and not huff and puff.

    Kinda strange to me they are investing in all the spinner rides. Camp Snoopy was already basically a village of spinners. Guess the old ones are falling apart.
