    Re: No new attractions for Knotts during Summer 2012

    The park needed, and still needs, a soup-to-nuts refurbishment, and I'm glad to see them spend money on that for the year. The park definitely does not need another coaster or flat ride. Trying to become a mini-Magic Mountain would be a failing strategy.

    Even the simple stuff such as bringing back the Ghost Town water pump, an original piece of Main Street from 1940-41, is a brilliant and simple step in the right direction for this long-languishing park. It's so good to see these details returning.

    Re: No new attractions for Knotts during Summer 2012

    No new attractions for 2012 is the main reason why I have not renewed my pass this year. IMO the park has become stale. They haven't seen a major coaster since 2004, and they refuse to give GhostRider, a former top 10 coaster, the needed maintenance to keep it in tip top shape.


    When Knotts adds a new major coaster, is when I'll renew my pass. Until then I will be taking an extended break from Knotts.

    I have never heard that phrase before. "soup to nuts".
    This is my signature. There are many like it but this one is mine.
