    Re: Knott's Berry Farm: The Non-Haunt version

    Loved it!

    You did exactly what I would have done if the kids weren't with me. Too bad the log ride wasn't open but with the ghost town & Mine train you got you fill. I probably would have went on the train too.

    To Jester: I think in the Disneyland Forum people are very complimentary as to the theming of ghost town. Many Chatters, myself included, much prefer the theme of ghost town to Frontierland.

    Nice report! So empty, it was virtually a ghost town! Get it? Moving on...did they still have the one grave you could step on and feel the heartbeat?
    I want my cake back!

    Not that I noticed, but they did have a low audio track of the hearse kind of organ music and occasional mumbling voices/sermon type snippets over at the far corner.

    The heartbeat is still there. Also, the sounds of the mining down the shaft at the entrance to Boot Hill has been back for some time as well.

    I'm also a bit surprised you never got to chat with Sad Eye Joe (as I think he's called, the guy in the jail cell)?
    Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

    Actually, we did heh...he seemed glad to have someone to talk to about something other than roller coasters who actually knew about the rest of the park...

    Re: Knott's Berry Farm: The Non-Haunt version

    Thanks for highlighting the best of what's left at Knott's - your camera angles really made one forget about what's been done to the rest of the park. Great job. The only diorama I didn't see pictures of was the building located semi-behind the candy shop. It used to feature a family sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner, but now looks like half of the room is set as dining and the other half as perhaps a kid's bedroom (?) I love that Knott's still has these.

    The dinner scene was still in there, but it was behind glass and at such an angle that it was reflecting the sun directly, so nigh impossible to photograph well....part of it looked like to me like a dining room scene, and the other half, away from the mortuary building, was a dentist's chair scene i believe.

    You're right, the other half was a dentist scene. Didn't there used to be a separate dentist's office in Ghost Town? I'm thinking that scene was relocated there. And yeah it's hard to photograph. When I went during the Christmas Crafts festival at night, they didn't have it lit at all - pitch black...but I just aimed the camera at the scene and the flash made it come out perfectly!

    A theme park that predates Disneyland, located about 10 minutes away in Buena Park. Started out as just a farm stand and some old buildings run by a man named Walter Knott and his wife, added a chicken dinner restaurant, and many more attractions over time. Currently owned by Cedar Fair amusement parks and much more high on roller coasters, with Ghost Town being the only original portion of the park from when Knott himself started it.

    We might as well just call it an amusement park now. The only theme in it is Ghost Town and even that is going down the drain!
