  • RUMOR - New ride coming to Knott's in 2020 to replace Iron Reef

    According to a report in the Orange County Register a couple of weeks ago, Knott's Berry Farm and ride manufacturer Triotech will be announcing a new attraction to celebrate Knott's 2020 centennial. The announcement will take place at the IAAPA (International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions) conference in Orlando during a scheduled press conference on Nov. 19th.

    Since Triotech was the manufacturer of the interactive shooting ride Voyage to the Iron Reef which opened at Knott's in 2015 (in the former location of both Knott's Bear-y Tales and Kingdom of the Dinosaurs), there is speculation that this might mean replacing Iron Reef with a newly themed ride.

    Do you think Iron Reef will be re-themed for next summer? Or will something else be coming to Knott's in a different location?

    Knott’s and Triotech will make an announcement on Nov. 19 about a new attraction coming in 2020 that will once again pair the park with the ride maker behind the Voyage to the Iron Reef interactive…

    Rumor is it’s Knott’s Beary Tale themed.

    I'm excited about that, but a little worried with Triotech behind it beings that they just seem incapable of producing anything of quality.

    Here is to hoping. Iron Reef was an embarrassment.

      As long as it is a non-spinny, non-3D family oriented dark ride (along the lines of Knott's Beary Tales), I'd be very excited!

          zugzug15 beat me to the punch, I was about to post that. I'm not too into all that 3D stuff, maybe I can just go on it and not wear the glasses? Also curious if this will just be a reskin of Voyage to the Iron Reef?

              BINGO your right
              It's Beary Tales
              4D attraction.........
              I think the ideal is good.....just not crazy about another screen base ride.
              Triotech designs, develops, and markets immersive and interactive out-of-home cinemas and platforms

              and they done others works for Cedar Fair, L.P.

              and IMO pretty sure ,Iron Reef is on it way out......
              Well...I hope it works out.......
              I love the first Beary Tales ...when it came out years ago !

                Beary Tales was my favorite thing at Knotts, I'd love to see it come back but mostly as it was rather than some sort of techno marvel that doesn't work well.
