    Cool WindSeeker Opens Next Week

    Hey All,

    I was at Knott's yesterday and I was on the Grand Sierra Scenic Railroad and the conductor said that the ride opens next week. I also got this shot of them testing it yesterday.

    I wonder what this means for the other Windseeker rides!

    Re: WindSeeker Opens Next Week

    It's been testing all week, but from what I've seen it hasn't been moving at all. Every time I've seen it it's been stuck either at the very top not spinning, or about 3/4 of the way up and still not spinning.

    If this is true, that's good news though! No more Windstopper!

    Remember, the other CF parks with a Windseeker are still closed for the offseason. I'd assume whatever modifications were made to Knott's Windseeker will also be made at the other parks. Knott's will obviously be the first one open.

    www.knotts.com says Windseeker is still out of service. It seems that if the ride were to open this week, there'd be something about it. Maybe they're waiting for Spring Break?

    There should be a sticky thread called "This Day in Disney History." The company has a long history and this would be a good way to acknowledge it. Walt was born 112 years ago; that's quite a chunk of American history and culture.

    Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

    Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

    Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).

    I'd probably not drink a lot before going up that first week in case it gets stuck. Men, be careful getting on and off of these swings!

    I really like this ride, and at night it's a beautiful, moving landmark of lights for Knott's.

    Now that Disneyland APs are so expensive, you might consider taking a year or two off in-between Disney APs. I highly recommend a Knott's Season pass for a gap year, and I posted a list of Knott's tips:

    Word out of Sandusky is that all of the Windseekers are getting the rescue cages. These were designed and built by Mondial and from what is being whispered this is their solution to the problem. IMHO if I were CF I'd have legal seriously looking at those sales contracts.

    Thank you MrsMonroe!

    I was at the park last Thursday for Physics day and it wasn't open, yet a lot people working on it. We will be going on Friday for the AP event and Saturday for the Knotts Berry Bloom.

    I will let you all know of the status!
