    I asked the manager at Coast Rider if this was the same ride as Goofy's Sky School at Disney California Adventure. He told me that the manufacturer was the same, but the configuration was a little different. I also asked about the Lego Technic roller coaster at Legoland in Carlsbad, which I think the Coast Rider is more similar to, but he wasn't familiar with that roller coaster.

    Re: Knott's new Boardwalk area

    Made my way over yesterday, been a few months since I've been to the park, despite owning passes. Love the new area, just really nice on the eyes, especially all the blue in the pools for the water. Coast Rider was pretty fun, but the turns were killer on my legs, pushing them into the restraints. Hopefully this won't end up like Ghostrider for me, a ride that is just too painful to physically ride.

    I had to skip out on the Scrambler and the Gliders, only spinning ride I've been able to go on and not get incredibly sick from was Windseeker. Girlfriend loved the Scrambler though.
