Families Will Have Three New Rides At Knott's For 2013

Buena Park, CAKnott's Berry Farm announced their plan to add three new attractions to theme park's Boardwalk for summer 2013, including an all-new roller coaster. This multi-million dollar upgrade is targeted towards families and will enhance the look and feel of the Boardwalk area.

The three new family rides include a Wild Mouse coaster, Flying Scooter ride and the return of the park's Scrambler that was removed a few years ago to make room for the Pony Express.

Knott's Berry Farm will add three new rides to the theme park's Boardwalk section for 2013. The new family friendly offerings will include a roller coaster, Flying Scooter and Scrambler ride.

Coast Rider, the new Wild Mouse roller coaster, will stand 52-feet tall and span 1,339 feet. The track will feature individual cars that speed along a layout consisting of a drop, switchback, hairpin turns and twists.

The next addition is the Surfside Glider ride that allows guests to pilot their very own glider. This Flying Scooter ride has two-man aircrafts with an attached sail that allows the passengers to fly and maneuver the vehicles as they spin in a circle.

The final new ride is the return of an old-time favorite – Pacific Scrambler. This traditional Boardwalk attractions seats guests in individual cars and then spins them in circles.

All of the new rides will be built where Knott's former Perilous Plunge attraction stood until it closed earlier this year. Two of the rides will be built on platforms atop a body of water.

Knott's plans to have all three new rides operational by next summer.
