Are ready to go back in time at Knott's Berry Farm?
The Buena Park, California theme park announced today that its redesigned Calico River Rapids will open May 17. The former Bigfoot Rapids ride has been given a complete makeover, with new animatronics, decorations... and a fresh backstory about the origins of the "Ghost Town" community of Calico at the heart of Knott's Berry Farm.
Here is the park's behind-the-scenes video with the team at Garner Holt that has been creating the ride's new look.
Calico River Rapids is designed to complement Garner Holt's previous attraction revamps for Knott's, including the Timber Mountain Log Ride and Calico Mine Ride. (Link is to our coverage of that opening, with on-ride video.) We will be at Knott's for the media premiere of Calico River Rapids on May 16 and will post a review and on-ride video that evening.
