Nearly Complete Coast Rider Standing at Knott's New Boardwalk

© Knott's Network
All done!  Well almost all done!  The track and supports kept flying up during the past two weeks, and now Coast Rider at Knott's Berry Farm is just about complete.  Seen yesterday in a photo from Knott's Network, the new coaster is just one track piece short of being complete.  Coast Rider is the 10th roller coaster at the Farm.

Coast Rider is a Mack extended wild mouse, similar to rides at Canada's Wonderland, Kings Dominion, and several Legoland parks.  It features a large first drop, around 50 feet, that isn't located on the traditional wild mouse design.

For a full update - taken just a few days ago - check out this from Westcoaster.  The foundations for the Boardwalk's other two rides are being poured as well, as work kicks into over drive as the May 25th opening date draws closer.
