Yesterday was a huge day for coaster announcements throughout the Cedar Fair Chain. While much of the attention went to Cedar Point as always, it was the west coast of the chain that had a couple of announcements later in the day that proved to be worth the wait.
We were invited to the announcement event at Knott's Berry Farm, Here is our story. =)

After spending a few hours in the park enjoying National Rollercoaster Day it was time to head over to the Boardwalk BBQ for some yummy food, drinks and music.
Oh, and some kind of announcement thing.
Of course Dan from Westcoaster had to curse the new ride before it was even announced.
We were all pretty happy the new ride had nothing to do with Wind.
We had a front row seat
Here are some highlights from the announcement.
We were all pretty excited when we saw this
The always popular Ride Stats
Some logo and art, looks sweet. Can't wait to see it lit up at night.
After the announcement we were given a little tour of the site.
They are going to start pouring the foundations on August 28. So that means when we go back to the park for the Knott's Scary Farm event on the 31st we should have some nice construction shots too.
Been a few years since we've seen a big plot of dirt at Knott's, it's a great thing!
This view is going to look way different very soon
As seen a few hours earlier, they are already hard at work in the area.
We did try to find out from the dippin dots gal a few hours ahead of time, but she wasn't talking.
After our tour it was party time!!
The gangs all here!! Hang Loose!!
The Boardwalk BBQ really is great and we can't wait to try more food in the near future.
Thank you Knott's for another great event, we can't wait to Hang 10 on HangTime in 2018!!
