Charlie Brown's Kite Flyer will be a children's Wave Swinger ride, with 16 two-passenger swings that rise up to 18 feet off the ground. Watch for Charlie Brown in the kite-eating tree at the top.
Linus Launcher places 24 riders on "blankets," lying down for a spinner ride that rises up to 10 feet in the air.
Pig Pen's Mud Buggies is another kiddie spinner, where "six four-seater ATVs will spin, bounce, and bump up to 24 guests at a time, while Pig Pen looks on from his center perch."
To make way for the new rides, Knott's is removing the Snoopy Bounce, Charlie Brown’s Speedway, and the Log Peeler. The three rides will go in those old attractions' places — Kite Flyer in the Snoopy Bounce spot, Linus replacing the Speedway, and Pig Pen taking the Log Peeler spot. Knott's said that it will reopen the newly refurbished land in "early summer."
