  • News Knott's refurbished Log Ride wins Golden Ticket award

    Congratulations to Knott's Berry Farm for winning the 2013 Golden Ticket award, Turnstile Award, from the publication Amusement Today (AT), for the refurbishment of the Timber Mountain Log Ride, which opened this summer.

    I don't really know much about the awards or publication, but I copied the text from the section of the September 2013 issue of Amusement Today announcing the awards. I saw the news on the Twitter feed of Brady MacDonald (@latimesfunland), who writes about theme parks for the L.A. Times.

    Here's the link to the award publication (page 29 of the 44-page document):

    Apologies for the sizing and spacing of the text. The formatting on the PDF document was not easy to copy from, or clean up.

    The original document also has four nice photos of the attraction.

      Congrats again Knotts.

      This year, you were marginally more interesting than Disneyland.
      :blink: Bullets for Breakfast :blink:
      Join the party. Face the music.

        I'd be excited if the Golden Ticket awards weren't such a joke.

        We all know how awesome the Log Ride is, Knott's knows how awesome the Log Ride is.

          I don't know if I'd call it a "joke" so much as I'd call it a thrill-centric list. Looking at past years the "voters" occasionally branch out, but for the most part if it's not a coaster it doesn't apparently really register and if it's Disney (other than Illuminations) it's not even on their radar. I'm a little surprised the Log Ride made the cut under the way the results seem to run.
          Boggard LIEEEEF!
