Still wandering through the ghost town section of the park
Like I said on the last page, I really liked this whole area.
It reminded me a lot of parks like Dollywood and Silver Dollar City.
That’s the Hang Man’s Tree. With a noose hanging from it and everything.
Look, I know “New Age Girl” got overplayed, but I think a grave marker is a bit overkill.
(kids, ask your parents. they probably understood that one)
I really appreciate seeing stuff like this that acknowledges the park’s history.
One of the most popular rides at Knotts is the Timber Mountain Log Ride.
It went through a big rehab in early 2013 and apparently it’s quite impressive.
Yeah, I said “apparently” because there was no way I was getting on it.
That line is easily an hour deep. Sorry, but we’re on a schedule here!
I know I’m like a skipping record, but I really do like this Ghost Town area.
It feels authentic, you know? You can feel the dedication to the theme.
And nothing completes the ghost town theme like a Panda Express. Sigh.
Spurs Chop House sounds a little more thematically sound. From Googling around, I’m not sure if this place is a buffet or a highbrow table service joint. Hell, I can’t even prove this place exists by looking at Knott’s Berry Farm’s website. Seasonal maybe?
While I can appreciate the historical significance of Knott’s Screaming Swing (it was the first installation of its kind), it shouldn’t still be operating as an upcharge attraction. That’s pretty weaksauce, guys.
