Pony Express reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Pony Express, a roller coaster at Knott's Berry Farm. (The minimum height to ride is 48 inches.)
Written by Robert Niles
"Pony Express" is a Zamperla design that places riders on one of 16 "horses," which launch from zero to 38 mph in three seconds. The Pony Express-themed ride takes riders through a series of banked turns and hills over a 1,300-foot track.
Yeah, it was short, but it was fun! The feeling of being on a horse was different and exciting but at the same time I felt secure. I thought the launch had a good amount of force and the hills (even though they hardly count as hills) were enjoyable. Even though it was very brief, so was the line. In the end the ratio of riding to waiting was probably the same as any other coaster in the park. (7.5/10) - Lexi R
Nice concept. Lame implementation - Denis Del Bianco
Fun, too short though, needs more track. - N O
