Part of the Ghost Town section of Knott's Berry Farm and Pony Express covers a 381-meter "out and back" course that takes you past Boot Hill and Big Foot Rapids.

The first Zamperla Motocoaster in the United States. Knott's Pony Express roller coaster has two 16-passenger trains that have a custom theme to resemble a team of horses. Riding horseback, passengers saddle up to be launched from zero to 40 miles-per-hour in just three seconds. The trains then ascend a banked turn rising to 47 feet before braving a series of 60-degree banked turns, camel backs, low-to-the-ground maneuvers, and steep banks.
