        Today Knott's invited the press to check out the Calico Mine Ride refurbishment and the refurbishment work on Camp Snoopy. The @Park_Journey Twitter account just reported that the targeted reopening date is June 14th. MiceChat will probably post a full report of the press event soon. In the meantime here's Park Journey's excellent report: Behind the scenes tour of the Calico Mine Ride and Camp Snoopy at Knott's - Park Journey

            I'm looking at going on Saturday or Sunday to see the Mine. Anyone else? I wonder which day would be best?

                Wow. What a fantastic upgrade! I went on it four times today and I'm going back on Saturday. I was also suprised with how fast the operators were dispatching trains, didn't wait longer than 10 minutes. Great work Knott's and Garner Holt Productions!

                    I can't wait to check it out either. I'm on the fence about buying an SP for KBF, decisions decisions!

                        Looks like I'm going to be making a trip to Knott's. I drove stagecoach there in the early 90s, so the Farm has a place in my heart. LOVED the old Calico Mine Train and can hardly wait to see the upgrade.

                          I rode the Calico ride on Saturday. I loved it. (and the lines were very short.)

                            Was at the park on the 3rd, only about a ten minute wait (if that - two, maybe three trains from the point we hit line). Beautiful refurbishment. Brings it up several notches in "wow" factor.
