    Every year I go I enjoy this park more. Xcellerator is great, though TTD at CP is better, but it is a nice Intamin Lauching coaster. I also really like Ghostrider. Knott's is a nice little park and I can't wait to see it grow more.

    Knott's is my fav. park out if all of the parks. I cant wait until Silver Bullet opens. It kinda ruined the Reflections Lake but makes it a lil' better with the new coaster. Ghost Rider is still currently my fav. woodie and Xcelorator is the best LIM launched coaster. Thats what I think of Knott's.

    Since the better coasters have been added, Knott's is getting to be an awesome park. And when you add in that chicken dinner, you'll never want to leave. I went in Octorber 2004 (a very good time to go - the park was almost empty) so I missed the Silver Bullet opening, but Xcelerator was awesome and Ghostrider scared the poo out of me. Ghostrider is a rickety and shakey old coaster and it feels like you're going WAY too fast around the corners which makes for a very thrilling experience. It was very fun! I also really appreciated the National Anthem being played when the park opened. Very cool!

    Knott's Berry was awesome, as usual. Early October has to be one of the best times to go; there was NO ONE there! We didn't have to wait in line for any of the rides and they were all open. Silver Bullet was very fun; the front seat was the best! And Xcelerator is awesome. I was really disappointed that I didn't get to go on Top Thrill Dragster when we went to Cedar Point earlier this year, but I did the math and the acceleration of Xcelerator is faster than TTD, so I'm not so disappointed now. We also splurged for Mrs. Knott's chicken dinner which is really good food! I'd recommend Knott's to anyone; they have something for everyone!

    this is not one of my favorite parks. it's not like it use to be, in the knott's early years. i really miss the corkscrew.

    go to knott's scary farm, that is the only fun best thing about knott's.

    TIMBERLINE TWISTER: A rather boring junior ride. 2/10
    BOOMERANG: I despise boomerangs, this one is one of the smoother ones though. 2/10
    JAGUAR: A very-well themed family ride. 4/10
    MONTEZOOMA'S REVENGE: Very good shuttle coaster. 7/10
    SILVER BULLET: One of the less-impressive Inverted, but still a enjoyable ride. 7/10
    XCELERATOR: I absolutely LOVE intamin rocket rides nad this one is no exception. 10/10
    GHOSTRIDER: Great woodie. Very intense, somewhat smooth, and strong airtime. 10/10

    Knott's is a fun place. When I went there were no lines at all. Some of the coasters there are good. Xcelerator was a great coaster. 9/10
    Ghostrider was one of the best woodies I have been on.9/10
    Silver Bullet was not as intense as other B&M; inverts but it was still smooth and enjoyable. 9/10
    Boomerang was okay.5/10
    Montezooma's Revenge was a great ride even though it was short. 8/10
    Jaguar was a fun and long family coaster and the theming adds to the experience. 5/10
    Timberline Twister was just a kiddie coaster and only worth a ride because of the credit. 3/10

    I used to go to Knott's almost every year as a kid. My parents liked it because it was cheaper and less crowded than it's famous neighbor, Disneyland. I rode the Corkscrew in 1975 when it was brand new, it would have rated a 9 back then, I recently took 5 nostalgia laps on it at Silverwood in Idaho. I haven't been there since 1980 but that park was always a pleasent experience.
