What needs to be fixed in the entry Marketplace. This assortment of shops and restaurants is very lame. The stores sells plenty of outdated merchandise that I don't want.
They need to fix the park lot pricing. The 3 hour grace period for the first 3 hours at the Marketplace is revoked. The daily rate for the theme park is way too high for locals. Perhaps they should sell a locals parking pass for those that own annual passes.
As for the Calico Mine Ride, I knew it would be impressive based on what happened to Timber Mountain Log Ride last year, and I was right. I would say the ride is now at least as good as a D-ticket Disney attraction and has gone from being I ride I liked, but didn't necessarily ride every visit, to one of my top three attractions in the park (along with the Timber Mountain Log Ride and Xcelerator). Great job Garner Holt and Knott's Berry Farm!
I can't wait to see what is coming next year. Based on hints dropped today and recent sightings in the area, I've got a feeling some type of dark ride in the former Kingdom of the Dinosaurs space is a very likely possibility.
Agree with previous posts that this 50 year old attraction puts the brand new 7 dwarfs mine train to shame.
Can't we just get over the fact that Disney didn't spend billions on creating 'Harry Potter and the 7 Dwarves' and enjoy what they did create instead and whilst we're at it enjoy these other, very different, classic rides. Credit to Knotts Berry for such a fine refurbishment. But let's not kid ourselves that they'd have built it from scratch.....
