Knott's Has a Brand New Skyline

The removal of Perilous Plunge has dramatically changed the view along the Boardwalk section of Knott's Berry Farm, as seen in this photo tweeted by the park:

The removal of the Plunge was swift and harsh - the ride most certainly will not be appearing anywhere in the future except perhaps a recycling plant.  The new Boardwalk skyline is once again quite open, at least for now - just the tall palm trees mark the edge of the park.

While the photos are from last week, Westcoaster has a nice update that shows just how merciless the park was when removing the ride.  Rumors from a news story say that the ride's lagoon will remain, but no official confirmation has come from the park.  If you read the unofficial chatter on what will eventually fill the space it sounds like anything from a flat ride to a mega coaster. 

Hopefully their announce their plans for the space soon!
