Published: April 18, 2013 at 9:11 PMMatt Ouimet, the CEO of Cedar Fair, confirmed on the Season Pass Podcast that a dark ride is in development for the show building that previously housed Kingdom of the Dinosaurs. The entire podcast was a very interesting conversation that made me excited for the future of Knott's and Cedar Fair.
Published: April 18, 2013 at 9:49 PMOur family became annual passholders in December. We were disappointed when Knott's Berry Farm announced on January 2nd that the Log Ride would be closing for almost half the year (our son is too big for many Camp Snoopy rides but too small for many of the tamer "big kid rides" like Jaguar and Big Foot Rapids--the Log Ride was his favorite attraction), but I am excited by the new animatronics and show scenes for the classic Log Ride, and think my family members will like the new version even more.
The new rides in the Boardwalk section are just right for our kids as well. I am gratified that management for Knotts and Cedar Fair seem to be concentrating on what sets the part apart from your average theme/amusement park, and what made the Knotts Berry Farm great in the past.

I suppose that having a tree stump fits with the theme of a logging operation, but it's a shame to have cut down the tree that had been there for so long. If anything, the giant Supreme Scream towering over the mountain ruins the view more than that tree might have.

It's been a lot of fun visiting the park every few weeks and watching the new attractions go from a dirt lot to where they are now. Although SFMM is putting in Full Throttle, I've got a feeling the new Knott's attractions (and the refurbished log ride) will be the big deal in Southern California for 2013.
