Recently, Knott’s Berry Farm announced the closure of their Screamin’ Swing, a Ghostrider renovation, and a celebration of the 75th Anniversary for their Ghost Town in 2016. Today, the park released even more details about the celebration of the land’s anniversary!
A key component to the Ghostrider celebration will be Ghost Town Alive. This will allow guests to the park to learn even more about the town as they interact more than ever with the town’s residents and participate in the town’s daily events.
As part of the announcement, more details were revealed for the park’s Ghostrider renovation. Above is the rendering for the new Great Coasters International Millennium Flyer trains being installed on the wooden coaster. The new trains will both make the ride smoother (in addition to the re-tracking) and give the ride a fantastic new look!
The final detail from Ghost Town is the announcement of the new Calico Stage. In place of the now removed Screamin’ Swing, this themed stage will feature a brand new western show when it opens next spring.
Another throwback at Knott’s will be the restoration of Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner. After closing on January 4th, the restaurant will undergo a renovation bringing new decor and preserving some of the classic designs of the restaurant before re-opening in the spring. A new outdoor seating area will also be installed.
I love what Knott’s is doing in 2016. They are turning Ghost Town into an even better and more immersive experience than before. By preserving the traditions of the land and transforming the land’s modern coaster, these changes will have a positive impact on Knott’s. I can’t wait to see what the land is like once complete!
