  • The illuminated "K" in logo script atop the Sky Tower, Who & When made it a Landmark?

    Just wondering, The illuminated "K" is a Landmark for Knott's But could it be placed on Supreme Scream or a new Ride. I like seeing it from the freeway and would miss it if they had to take it down. I just couldn't find any official record designating it as a official landmark.

    I've often thought about this, but have not been able to come up with any actual answer as to who designated it a landmark. Just about everything I've found online has been copied from the Wikipeda page. It's worded in a way that makes it sound like someone other than Knott's made it a landmark, because it "prevented" them from using the area for Windseeker. However I don't even know how true that is.

    Hopefully someone comes along and is able to shed some light.

      Are we even sure it has been designated a landmark? I can't find any reference to it on the National Register of Historic Places or the California Office of Historic Preservation.

        That is my question as well. I took a look at the National Register, and nothing came up. It could have been misinformation that spread from Wikipedia.

          If I remember correctly when wind seeker was still in the planning stages it was decided it would go where sky cabin was which would have the old tower removed and a taller tower replace it. People didn't like the idea of removing the K tower and had a petition to make the K tower a historical landmark. That may be when it Happened

            It's probably more poor wording than misinformation and the author meant it was a landmark within the context of the park and not that it was an officially designated one.

              But if it was designated a historical landmark there would be a record of that. It could be that a petition got started but before they gathered the necessary number of signatures Knotts acquiesced to public pressure and the petition was abandoned.

                Yeah, you're probably right!
