    Knotts is still worth a look!

    OK, ok...

    I know they tore down ALOT witht the new coaster SILVER BULLET, but if you havent been in a while I do suggest going. Its still has a nice family atmosphere great food! It is really nice when they turn it into KNotts Merry Farm! My family and I went there for out Thanksgiving meal... It was good, the food was really good! Plus htey let you inot the park for free. It was a great change for our family instead of my mom and sister and whomever else cook a huge meal. We could enjoy each ohters company! Also I highly recommend going to Knotts Scary Farm: Halloween Haunt! It is tons of fun fo rthose that can braze all the terrifying mazes... not to mention I take all my vacation time to work there during October. LOL

    So yes Knotts is still worth taking a look at.. I maybe goign this Sunday! Hopefully Disneyland on MOnday!

    Later!

    Did you have your Thanksgiving meal at Mrs. Knott's or somewhere inside the park?

    That is sort of a neat idea. I usually take my sister to Catal in Downtown Disney for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. However, Knotts would be fun for a change.

    Hey anytime I'm in town I"m down for lunch at Mrs. Knott's with you Mr. Dusty!

    I miss the Soapbox racers and Parachute rides also, I loved those!! I remember there was one "racer" that had my name on it and I used to wait to get that one

    I think Knott's has defintely lost some of it's charm.
    But I still love that chicken dinner & boysenberry pie!!

    To be Fair to Cedar Fair, the Steak House used to be outside the gates, and competed with the Chicken Dinner Restaurant. When the Knott's Family decided to build Ghostrider, they had to place the building inside the gates, and therefore had to market to a different clientale.

    But the Ghost Town Grill is still very nicely themed (some of the decor from the old restaurant moved there).

    But if you have a large hungry family, it is nice to know you can get an all you can eat buffet dinner for less than $10 a person.

    We went to knotts 2 years ago and it was just a mess. On trips prior to DCA, we loved the Big Foot Water Rapids at Knotts. Now compared to GRR, we find it more entertaining. I cant imagine why they had got rid of the soap box racers, that was one of my favorites! Also, I am REALLY sad that they closed the Kingdom of the Dinosaurs!! When we went on a week day it was way too crowded, we decided to leave early around 2pm! Also, Ghostrider recked both me and my moms back, Never Again! And I am sorry to say that I was not impressed with Mrs. Knott's chicken, i didnt really like it. With all of that said, we did come home with some memories and cool souvineers (you buy a rock (geode) and a guy cuts it open in front of you). Also they had a pickle stand... I was so happy. We are planning on spending a day this July, you cant go to SoCal without seeing Snoopy!!!!!!!

    Tangaroa, thank you for the pictures of the Steak House!!! I had forgotten about that. Man, that park used to have so much charm. Ghost Town in particular.

    Very Sad

    We visited in Dec. with our almost 3 year old and six year old. We did all the Camp Snoopy rides. The area was well themed but was way more "carnival" than DCA or Bug's Land. They only had one person working some of the rides and they locked the exit before starting the ride, which meant that they then had to unlock it before unloading the kids. This took FOR-EVER. Why do you need to lock the exits?

    Next, we went to the mexican fair area and tried to ride their version of the teacups, which had a height requirement. No luck for our almost 3 year old. WTF?

    We rode their train, which was nice with the "train robbers" who came on the train. But there wasn't much to look at. Their mine ride was an okay "ride" but the animatronics were awful!!! Embassing more like it. Their log ride was actually really good (despite more bad animatronics).

    We took in the Snoopy on Ice christmas show that was really good. The ghost town was quite underwhelming and felt old and dirty and cheap.

    Otherwise, we didn't have much to do with our kids. We're not into the "extreme" coasters, which of course run all over the place and ruin the theme of the other areas ("why does Camp Snoopy have a giant coaster running through it, Dad?").

    Overall, I don't regret going but boy did I miss the Disney experience.

    It's unfair to put all the blame on Cedar Fair for ruining the "good old" Knott's. After all, the Knott's regime was responsible for tearing out the Soap Box Racers, putting in Jaguar and Ghostrider, replacing Beary Tales and Corkscrew, paving the streets of Ghost Town, and stripping the theme out of the Roaring 20's among countless other little things here and there. Cedar Fair is just continuing the trend that was started years ago. At least when Cedar Fair replaces part of Knotts' past, they're putting a decent ride in its place.

    OK yes Knotts has destroyed much in the way of their thememing i.e. the new coaster goes all over the park! Tangora do you have any photos before they emptied the lake?

    Yes - but what era? 1940s, or 1980s?
