I was listening to the new Season Pass podcast today, because I was interested in Matt's story and curious to see if had anything to say about the future of Knott's. Personally, I think Matt is (and has been) doing a fantastic job and that goes for what he has done for the Disney Cruise Line, Disney Vacation Club, and Disneyland park as well. I highly suggest you listen to the podcast, which can be found here.
At one point Matt mentioned that Cedar Fair is working with a new company, which he did not name, on coming up with a new dark ride that could be incorporated into all their parks. They briefly talked about Knott's and how they are working hard to keep the classics that are left in good condition (specifically the Timber Mountain Log Ride and the Mine Train) and he had this to say as well..
I would like to think that they are going to utilize this building for a future dark ride which he sort of hinted at being a possibility earlier. Regardless I am glad to hear that at some point it will be used again. At least it gives us a faint light at the end of the tunnel as opposed to the continual rotting of the corpse that is there now.This is more than I should say but I think we'll end up back in the Kingdom of the Dinosaurs building, probably not with the way it used to be, but with something else thats interesting
