Knott's Berry Farm Announces Coast Rider

Knott’s Berry Farm will debut three new family attractions next summer, all in park’s Boardwalk section, further enhancing the feeling of strolling down a colorful California Boardwalk fun zone filled with amusements, games, and fun food offerings.

The rides include a set of flying scooters dubbed Surfside Glider, the Pacific Scrambler which has long been a traditional Boardwalk attraction and the ride that will be most interesting to our riders Coast Rider, a 1,339 foot Wild Mouse with an overall drop of fifty-two feet.

The 52 foot ascent to the top of Coast Rider will have everyone clinging to the handrails for the ultimate family coaster experience. The adventure aboard the ride gives guests the feeling of riding the California coast, but once they reach the crest, it is a harrowing journey down the 1,339 feet of track filled with hairpin turns, twists and spins.
