    Saddle up, coaster fans for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! Here’s your chance to be the first rider ever on a brand new rollercoaster at Knott’s Berry Farm! And you’ll be doing a good deed since all the proceeds will go to charity!

    Imagine the bragging rights you’ll have when you become part of Knott’s Berry Farm history as one of the first ever riders on the Pony Express thrill adventure! You’ll be treated like a VIP as you enjoy all of the following:

    Admission to Knott’s Berry Farm ($49.99 Value)
    Breakfast ($12.50 Value)
    Souvenir T-Shirt ($16.99 Value)
    Memories to last a lifetime (Priceless!)

    As the winner of this charity auction you’ll journey back to the Ol’ West to join the elite ranks of the Pony Express. You’ll sit astride one of the team’s 16 horses and giddyup out of the station at a speed of 38 mph in under 3 seconds! The terrain is rugged as you navigate an ascending banked turn to a height of over 44 feet then through a series of heart-pounding 60 degree banked turns, camel backs and tight maneuvers all with the knowledge that the mail must be delivered no matter the cost! You’ll journey up and over Knott’s own Grand Canyon and above the timeless Ghost Town Railroad. The Pony Express team covers a 1,300 foot route that also banks above Boot Hill Cemetary and Bigfoot Rapids. Pony Express is a runaway adventure that will leave you gasping for more and eager to saddle up again!

    Here's the ride under construction right in the heart of Ghost Town!

    All riders must be over 48” tall and be able to endure the challenging journey of a high speed rollercoaster experience. If you are unsure please ask as many questions as you’d like before you bid.

    All proceeds from this auction will benefit the Speech and Language Development in Buena Park, California. To find out more please go to:

    This once-in-a-lifetime event is May 22, 2008 at 9:00 AM. Winning bidders are responsible for their own transportation to and from the park and lodging. This auction is for admission to the park, breakfast, souvenir shirt and the first official ride on Pony Express.
    This auction is for the FRONT ROW HORSE (1) or (2) on TRAIN 1 of Pony Express: The Ride. Both Horses are located on the front of the train and provide the best experience! This is truly the place to be for a place in theme park history. Your winning bid will include a place on the First Row on Train 1 of Pony Express: The Ride, Admission to Knott's Berry Farm on May 22, 2008, Contintental Breakfast, Recognition during our Opening Day Celebration (We'll introduce you to the crowd as a VIP!), a collectible Pony Express T-Shirt and a special Commemorative Pony Express Opening Day Gift!

    You won’t want to miss out on this incredible opportunity to experience firsthand the excitement of the Ol’ West! Grab the reins and set off on your own adventure on Pony Express here at Knott’s Berry Farm! Like the real Pony Express this offer will ride off into the sunset before you know it!

    There are 4 different auctions for various spots on the ride. One of them (at the time of this posting) is at only 60$. Great oppurtunity to experience this new coaster before the majority of the general public, and its for a great cause.
    Will there be screams when the sun sets,
