  • HangTime construction, Merry Farm, & other updates

    I was at Knott's this past Monday (12/18). I took some photos of the HangTime construction which I haven't really taken a look at for a month or more. The work has progressed really quickly since the announcement was made in August and actual vertical construction began around the beginning of November. (you can watch construction going on via 24/7 webcams of the Boardwalk area near HangTime and Ghost Town near Calico Square on the Knott's website: knotts.com/explore/live-video, mostly when the park is closed).

    These photos were posted on my Twitter account: https://twitter.com/Hubert_Wong2/sta...66241361817600. Follow me on Twitter at @hubert_wong2 (Hubert Wong is a pen name). I usually post photos on every trip I take to Knott's.

    Also, the Sky Cabin (after the hours-long malfunction last New Year's Eve), which has not re-opened since the incident, has had its cabin stuck at the topmost position for several weeks, and many (if not all) of the windows have been taken out. I asked a ride operator for Coast Rider next door what is going on, and he said they are refurbishing the Sky Cabin (to make sure it is safe?), and the cabin needs to be at the top position because otherwise the cables will bang against the tower when the winds are strong.

    Overall the park is looking great during the holidays (Merry Farm), with decorations throughout the park, the holiday entertainment like the Snoopy ice show and the stage shows in the Bird Cage Theatre, and the crafts vendors in Ghost Town.


    Here are some food photos from Santa's Cabin near Mystery Lodge.

    I was planning to try the Christmas pizza which has sliced turkey, stuffing, turkey gravy and sweet cranberry & yam sauce (see review at http://www.ocweekly.com/restaurants/...-pizza-8618093) at the food stand next to the bumper cars in Boardwalk, but I felt the price was ridiculously high at $12.79 for a slice plus a side salad (cannot buy just the pizza).

      Posted by Facebook user Mike Sigmond as a comment on Knott's Network fb page yesterday.

      He writes: "Looks like the final top section of track will go in tomorrow, it’s cued & strapped ready for the crane"
