Sean: We stopped by the Farm for a few hours to get some rides in on Montezooma’s Revenge, and of course ride several other favorites. Or perhaps I was subconsciously dying to get some Boysenberry soft serve. Either way, I composed a little update that features… HANGTIME CONSTRUCTION! Continue reading “Knott’s Berry Farm Update – October 11th 2017”
Sean/Zach: Knott’s Scary Farm is easily our favorite haunt event, and that’s mainly due to the impressive collection of original and unique mazes that deliver experiences other events can hardly live up to. Being the oldest halloween event in the state, Knott’s Scary Farm knows what it takes to put an event together, which all started with the infamous Ghost Town Streets. Though we always find the mazes to deliver better than the Scare Zones at the event (like most events), this year the Scare Zones have been the best we have yet seen at the event!

Alexander: Being a flight attendant has many perks, not the least of which is getting paid to go places that happen to have roller coasters nearby!
My recent layovers to Minneapolis and Daytona Beach were fruitful in the credit department. Two new parks, two new coasters!
Alexander: Sean and I like to go to Disneyland on a monthly basis to see what’s going on at The Happiest Place On Earth. Never a dull moment at the big D!
The Disneyland Railroad is finally open again, and things have changed quite a bit! Still as great a ride as ever, though; perhaps even better now!
Sean: Some coasters have a very uneventful ending, some coasters have endings that perfectly compliment the ride experience, and then there are coasters that have an ending that simply stands out and adds a final sweet kiss to your ride experience. These coasters simply wouldn’t be as awesome if they didn’t have an awesome finale. Let’s look at the 5 best coaster finales in California! Continue reading “The 5 Best Coaster Finales in California”
Sean: Knott’s Scary Farm is back and it is better than ever! This year’s lineup of amazing mazes is seeing some of Knott’s best work and there isn’t a single maze that felt weak. The best mazes of the past few years have returned, and this year’s new mazes are unique and solid additions. Let’s get to rating and reviewing them! Continue reading “Knott’s Scary Farm 2017 – Maze Ratings and Reviews”
Chad: This year brought some interesting mazes.
I had the unbelievable experience of trying out the RIP Experience. And it was worth it. The price is a very steep one, but with a MASSIVE buffet, two free beers (if you are over 21 years of age), unlimited front of the line for everything in the park and free valet, it was not too bad.

Alexander: State Fair and County Fair season is a great time to be a coaster enthusiast; lots of opportunities for new credits pop up in places that wouldn’t otherwise play host to a roller coaster, let alone three or four.
Southern California is no stranger to numerous coasters, but during late summer/early fall, several traveling credits take up temporary residence. Today we’re visiting two of California’s largest county fairs, The Orange County Fair and the Ventura County Fair.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year at The Entertainment Capital of L.A. as Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal CityWalk deck the halls for a wintry calendar of festive holiday experiences and an array of delectable treats that families and friends far and wide can enjoy.
The all-new “Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” experience will resonate throughout the immersive land this yuletide season transforming the iconic HogwartsTM castle into a dazzling light projection spectacular, while the quaint town of Hogsmeade village shines brightly with décor uniquely themed to each of the individual storefronts.
