    Some photos from this past weekend of ongoing ride construction at Knott's Berry Farm.

    Work being done on the mountain at the top of the first lift hill on the Timber Mountain Log Ride:

    The third ride in the area, Pacific Scrambler, has not been installed yet. It will be closer to the wall where the last two photos were taken.

    Is it me or does the Coaster rider trains remind or pay homage to Windjammer in a weird way, I mean by color or style not the actual look
    Here is a picture of the Windjammer train

    Not seeing the similarities between the trains at all honestly. Like not even remotely.

    Been watching the progress whenever I drive by, can't wait for the new rides to open, even if the only one I can go on is Coast Rider.

    The surfboard sides on the Windjammer cars really takes me back! However, I don't see the homage surfacing in the Coast Rider cars. Both streamlined though.

    So excited about Log Ride!!!

    Looking like good summer for Knotts. Will help the theme of the boardwalk
    The new Star Wars plot summery:

    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...).

    Great pix! The coaster looks like something I can do, hahaha. I tend to get woozy on most swoopy rides.
