Knott’s Summer Nights Debuts for the 2019 Summer Season at Knott’s Berry Farm | Inside Universal
At the very least Montezooma's Revenge is safe: ACE is honoring it with landmark status Knott’s Berry Farm’s Montezooma’s Revenge joins an elite group of legendary roller coasters with historic award – Orange County Register
ACE landmark status really doesn't mean much. At some point the park could still pull the plug when operating costs outweigh the ridership.
True, but Knott's management in the past sounded pretty determined to keep this open for as long as it's working. When asked about if Montezuma would be going away in the future (again, this was a few years ago), their reply was, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
But, when the ride's manufacturer has been out of business for 35 years, parts are scarce or expensive to produce, and they have a corporate parent who is always looking to cut costs, decisions may be beyond their control.
This is more for the more realistically distant future (Like, 3-5 years at least) but I recently rode Pegasus Express at Parc Asterix in France. It’s a really solid family coaster! I think something like this could make a descent replacement for Pony Express. Maybe something in between this or Firechaser Express at Dollywood.
Timber Mountain for their 50th anniversary, will be getting two new animatronics!
Knott's is fixin' to celebrate its Log Ride's 50th
Knott's increased season pass process effective today. Still a bargain compared to their neighbors in Anaheim.
Season Passes & Upgrades | Knott's Berry Farm
Wow! Prices have gone up a bit since I got my 2019 Gold Pass at $115 (now $152) and All Season Dining at $110 (now $145). You're right though. Still a bargain compared to DL.
I'm glad they're finally doing this.
Screamscape is reporting that Mystery Lodge is planned to reopen. There’s a missing part that is no-longer supported which is why it will be down indefinitely.
The Knott's pass prices always go down significantly when its time to renew for the following year. They're at the highest price for the year during the summer.
Regarding Montezooma's Revenge, even if it did cost more money to operate due to parts and a defunct manufacturer, I'm positive Knott's gets a higher budget for their operations due to being the highest attended in the chain and the fact they can't/don't need to build expensive giga coasters every other year like CP, KI, and KD to maintain attendance.
Well, I was talking about Mystery Lodge, but if this was Monty, I’m sure they would. Monty is old, but it’s an extremely underrated coaster. I would be really gutted if they even considered closing it. It doesn’t take up much space so there’s nothing they can replace it with.
