Knott's teased the change last month, and today's reveal confirms that the ride will be getting new animatronics, show scenes, and water effects in support of its new narrative overlay. From the park's press release:
Calico River Rapids will take voyagers on a search for new land through the outskirts of Calico, the richly themed area in Knott’s esteemed Ghost Town. Guests will journey through the authentic setting with the help of legendary frontiersmen who have plotted the path for settlers to explore. Rafters will encounter a variety of wild surprises along the way such as roaring rapids, indigenous wildlife, and peculiar homesteaders.
Garner Holt Productions will provide the animatronics, as it did for Knott's previous refurbishments of the Timber Mountain Log Ride and Calico Mine Ride. Calico River Rapids will open next summer.
In addition, Knott's announced today that its annual Boysenberry Festival will expand again, running from March 29 – April 28, 2019. And the interactive, role-playing experience Ghost Town Alive will return, too, running May 25 – August 18 and weekends from August 24 through Labor Day, September 2 next year.Tweet
