That brings us to the latest news, the park will send the Timber Mountain Log Ride under a multi-million dollar renovation that will last approximately five months. When the mountain, which first opened in 1969 and is still one of the park's most popular rides, opens it will look like new, head to toe. The park has contracted Garner Holt Productions to create all new scenes for inside the ride that will stay true to the original theme and story line.
“The Timber Mountain Log Ride not only embodies the spirit of Knott’s Berry Farm, but it also set the bar for all themed attractions that came after,” says Raffi Kaprelyan, Knott’s general manager who worked for Bud Hurlbut from 1979-1983. “Bud Hurlbut made numerous contributions to Knott’s Berry Farm, but I think that the Timber Mountain Log Ride remains his crowning achievement.”
The ride will close January 7th for the renovations to begin. Great decision, Knott's! I can't wait to see the finished product.
