We took some time to enjoy the park after the event and the rest of the family needed to get their passes processed. We also had my Mother In-Law with us and it was her first visit to Knott's since 1975, so it was interesting seeing the park through her eyes.
We'll start off with a look at Iron Reef construction.
Lots of work going on both inside and outside the building.
Lots of work going on inside the station
A peek inside, the mural is still there.
Looking forward to seeing the ride take shape over the next few months.
Elsewhere in the park, a few offseason things going on.
The Log Ride is closed now until the end of the month.
Most notably work is being done on the final lift and drop.
The train was closed for some work last week on the crossing near Fiesta Village. Nice quick refurb.
Over on Montezooma's Revenge, a new elevator has been installed.
One of our site contributors will be very happy about this.
We had our first chance to try one of the Boysenberry Latte's on Saturday, wow. So great.
Keep Calm and Ride on Knott's what? This has officially run it's course.
Speaking of things that have run their course. Yes, I know they've had these for awhile.
Coasters is closed for a bit of a refurb.
According to our friends at Westcoaster, word is that the Calico Saloon is going to be closing for a refurb, which makes sense. So we figured we'd take a look inside.
Sadly the upstairs was closed.
Purple train in refurb on Xcelerator.
That's about it for today's Knott's update. Now that we have our passes processed we'll be taking more trips down to the farm this year for updates and such. And as summer approaches, we'll definitely be getting use out of our CF Platinum passes. Can't wait!!
This past weekend, Knott's kicked off another year of their Knott's Pink event in support of Komen Orange County.
We were very proud to be invited again to this event this year and to do whatever we can to support this great event and great charity.
The event started off on a cool and damp morning as the rain arrived much earlier than expected.
Beautiful new flower display at the front of the park.
The mine ride will be lit up pink every night of the event. We'll be sure to get a few pictures next time we're at the park.
The event was once again held in the Boardwalk Ballroom.
Snoopy and Sally are all ready for this great event.
As always Knott's puts on a great event with great food.
The room decked out in pink.
Speakers included president of Knott's Raffi Kaprelyan
Some great and inspirational stories were once shared. Always a great and humbling moment.
After the breakfast everybody headed over to Jaguar for a ride.
Hands up for the ride!!
In addition to the Knott's Pink tickets. there are some great shirts and other merchandise and proceeds will go to Komen.
Beautiful pink flowers in Ghost Town
Even pink kids stuff
Virginia's out in the Marketplace also has the merchandise.
That's going to wrap it up for this update. Be sure to check visit https://www.knotts.com/what-s-new/knott-s-for-the-cure to get your pink tickets and read about the entire event.
We'll have a regular Knott's update tomorrow or Wednesday.
