Knott's Berry Farm has selected a location and started working on WindSeeker, the park's 301' tall thrill ride for 2011. Unlike the park's previous announcement, the ride will not replace the park's aging Sky Cabin. Instead, it will be located in Fiesta Village in between the entrance to the Jaguar coaster and the park's Carousel.
The change in location will require the removal of the park's Fiesta BBQ Mexican restaurant. The late decision to move the ride's location now has the park suggesting an opening between Memorial Day and the 4th of July - a rather large window of time. The Sky Cabin will eventually be reopened, according to Knott's.
according to the Orange County Register.
The park scouted other locations in the park, such as Charleston Square (near where Demon Drop would have been placed), but that would have required the removal of the famous fountain located there.
Knott's posted some shots of the area where the ride will go up on their Facebook after the announcement.
