Knott's Announces New Rides, Details for Camp Snoopy Makeover

Celebrating Camp Snoopy's 30th anniversary in style, Knott's Berry Farm will add three new family rides in addition to giving the themed land a total overhaul.  Today the park announced the details of the three new rides, each of which will replace a former attraction in Camp Snoopy - the Snoopy Bounce, Log Peeler (mini-scrambler) and Charlie Brown's Speedway will be retired.

Clustered in the back half of Camp Snoopy, the new rides are being shown off in some beautiful concept artwork sent out by the park:

Make sure to check out the larger sized photo to see the details.  The new construction blog that details the news gives descriptions of the three new rides:

Charlie Brown’s Kite Flyer invites campers to “fly a kite” with Charlie Brown and soar above the land’s winding paths and babbling streams – but watch out for the kite-eating tree! This 32-passenger adventure allows guests to sit side-by-side on 16 swings for a spin that whisks riders up to 18 feet above the ground. As the tree rises, good ol’ Charlie Brown is revealed upside down and all tied up in kite string! Charlie Brown’s Kite Flyer will replace Snoopy Bounce.

Pig Pen’s Mud Buggies lets tykes climb aboard their very own all-terrain vehicle for an adventurous ride around the High Sierras. Six four-seater ATVs will spin, bounce, and bump up to 24 guests at a time, while Pig Pen looks on from his center perch. Pig Pen’s Mud Buggies will replace Log Peeler.

Linus Launcher recreates that classic Peanut’s moment when Snoopy grabs Linus’ blanket and launches him on a wild ride. On Linus Launcher, guests lay on one of twelve “blankets” as they fly round and round. Up to 24 guests lay side-by-side while Snoopy launches them up almost 10 feet in the air. Guests will enjoy a Woodstock’s-eye view of Huff ‘n Puff, The Grizzly Creek Lodge, and all of Camp Snoopy below! Linus Launcher will replace Charlie Brown’s Speedway.

Knott's Berry Farm promises to cover the changes and more additions coming to Camp Snoopy in a series of blogs on the park's website - you can keep up to date from this link.  I'm loving the look of the art and can't wait to see how Camp Snoopy looks when complete!
