      Looking forward to seeing how the Log Ride shapes up after renovations. Only one of the new attractions I'm really interested in is the Coast Rider, can't do spinning rides..make me sick (save for something like Windseeker, which I find incredibly relaxing).

        Thanks for the news. Looking forward for the new rides, especially Coast Rider and the refurbished Log Ride.
        The new Star Wars plot summery:

        Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

        Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

        Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).

          For as much as I love Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm is also a favorite. It's a change of pace from DLand. Not too crowded. Fun atmosphere. Fun rides. I'm glad it is improving too.

            Thanks for the update. My wife and I have been pondering picking up passes for KBF next year. I haven't been there during the day in lord knows how long, each time I've been over the last 10 years or so has been for Scary Farm.

              Yeah, wasn't until I moved, more or less, down the street with my girlfriend's family that we went ahead and got passes. Prior to that the only times I went to Knott's for years was either for Haunt or for some event (like a company picnic or something).

                  I was at Knott's today with the family for the Spring Bloom event, and saw that construction on the new Coast Rider roller coaster has progressed quite a bit.

                    Nice photos SpacemanSpiff!

                    It almost looks Goofy's Sky School-esque. I guess I never noticed that in the concept photos.

                        Man, that thing went up in, what, 4 days? They're just buzzing along with construction. Thank you for the pics!

                          I think I'll go to DCA and see if Goofy's SkySchool is still there.

                          There should be a sticky thread called "This Day in Disney History." The company has a long history and this would be a good way to acknowledge it. Walt was born 112 years ago; that's quite a chunk of American history and culture.

                            Oh, I have one more photo from the weekend visit. This is artwork from Knott's which was displayed on the construction wall, along with the artwork released to the media in February (see my original post in this thread).

                              Here's how the original artwork looks on the construction wall, with the descriptions of the new rides:
