  • [Chat] video cameras on the roller coasters

    I remember they had video cameras on the roller coasters at knotts. Why did they remove them?

    I think the only one that had it was Sierra Sidewinder, although I could be wrong about that. If they don't have it on there anymore I couldn't tell you why.

      Yeah they had them on Xcellerator and Sierra Sidewinder. After the cable break incident on the former that one was removed. The last time I was on SS it still had it, but I don't think it was functioning.

          They disappeared right after the Xcellator accident. They were leased, a PITB, and very a big money maker.

            PITB?

            why would knott's even release this!

            anyways they should have kept all the cameras. the videos looked very cool. They were on Ghost Rider as well.

                Knotts didn't release it, I believe it was an employee of the on ride photo company posted on YouTube (in violation of employers policy).

                    I don't remember ever seeing them on Ghostrider, but as others have said, they just didn't catch on. I also think that with the employee leaking the Xcelerator video that kind of convinced the park not to renew the contract.

                      GhostRider had them for a brief period of time:
