    I'd get rid of the coasters. Thats just me though.
    I would definitely keep all the original things because those somewhat inspired Disneyland.

    I don't know about get rid of as much as retheme for more of a Disneyesque feel.

    Is Kingdom of the Dinosaurs still there? I thought I heard it closed. It was a good attraction, as I recall, a long ride with many well-done animatronics.

    Kingdom of the Dinosaurs closed about 10 years ago but if Disney bought Knott's they would have got the rights to it.

    It's been closed for quite some time now. I have heard many rumors as to why, I think that asbestos hazards was the main one? It sounds reasonable enough considering when it was opened, but who knows. I remember in it's final days it just looked terrible. It was like seeing it slowly deteriorate before it died..

    Had Disney bought them pre-Cedar Fair I would have been open to it. But it'd be just stupid of Disney to buy Knott's in it's current form

    Just for playing the game, I'd keep:

    Ghost Town
    Mystery Lodge
    Bigfoot Rapids
    Minetrain
    Log Ride

    I would also be really interested in rebuilding Kingdom of the Dinosaurs and Knotts Beary Tales, since they were really awesome, in my opinion.

    I would really retheme so much of everything else. They used to have a Roaring Twenties theme that worked pretty well, back in the day...

    I second rebuilding Kingdom of the Dinosaurs, it was such an immersive attraction that only the likes of POTC and HM could compete with. I haven't been interested in returning to Knotts ever since it was closed.

    I haven't been to Knott's since 1988 so I have no idea what's there anymore, but I saw that Soapbox Racers isn't. Therefore, if anything's going to be rebuilt it's going to be Soapbox Racers, of course! I suppose there's some tiny possibility that it might not live up to my memories of riding it when I was 14, though...

    Even though Disney would never do it, but I would keep haunt. I know it isn't necessarily a ride, but it is definitely an attraction.
