    I see KBF throwing only festivities for their centurial. I hate to say it but Knott's has teased so much yet time and time again fail to deliver a mega or giga of any kind. They even acknowledged before Coast Rider was announced that they know word on the street has been a mega coaster but that fans would have to wait and see. Hate to say it, but I don't see it happening. I'd love to be proven wrong though.

    On a side note, any updates about Monte? Screamscape said it valleyed on Saturday. We were there Sunday (not knowing that news), and it was closed and just cycling over and over, but never opened (as far as we saw, but we left mid afternoon).

    I think something like DC Rivals would be a nice fit for the park, so long as it's not too close to Ghost Town. It could dive in and out of the backstage area by Ghostrider.

    Take with a grain of salt, however this does fall in line with something that I was told by someone at the farm. Supposedly Team Members and ride-ops were telling guests today that Bigfoot Rapids will be closing on Oct 1 for a major refurb thru memorial day next year.

    I was told late last year that a big retheme was in the works for Bigfoot and that the aging attraction and its surrounding area would be getting A LOT of love. Again, take with many grains of salt.

    I remember hearing something like that last year, but I thought nothing of it.

    Apparently..this is also going around in other areas too. If that's the case, then I am all up for it. It deserves the love, as in it's layout and intensity, I much prefer Bigfoot to Roaring on any day.

    I don't think they'll ever get rid of mystery lodge. No clue about Pony but I would assume its safe. All I heard was that it would be more cohesive, it will now tell a story and the goal is to put it on par with Mine and Log.

    This would make sense. Knott’s has yet to announce a 2019 project and they have been pretty adamant about adding something new every year. I can’t imagine they would just let Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge dominate and they sit sleeping.

    Knott's Berry Farm Historical Photos Buena Park California




    The Knott's Berry Farm amusement park in Orange County, California originated from a berry farm owned by Walter Knott (1889-1981). In the 1920s, Knott and his wife, Cordelia, sold berries, berry preserves and pies from a roadside stand beside State Route 39, near the small town of Buena Park.

    If it's true, then this has begun.

    From Parks & Cons,



    Adding fuel to the fire, there is no reopening date for Bigfoot..

    Isn’t it normal for parks to drain their water rides after peak season? Not saying this won’t happen, but that picture is hardly a confirmation of anything.

    Bigfoot is open year round. This is California.

    Yeah; typically they would close Bigfoot in the Winter if I'm not mistaken. But what tips me off in thinking that it's more, lies that they do not have an reopening date for Bigfoot.

    For instance, the other attractions that are on that refurb schedule do have dates.
