Next season marks the 75th anniversary of Knott’s Berry Farm’s classic Ghost Town, and they’re taking the opportunity to get their hands dirty and fix one of the most infamous rides in wooden coaster history. September 8th will be fans last chance to ride GhostRider in it’s current state, as the ride will then close for an extended renovation of the 17 year old wooden coaster.
The 4533ft long coaster has suffered in the California climate, providing an increasingly rough ride every year, and has become subject to complaints about the rickety ride experience. In addition to GhostRider closing, Screamin’ Swing will also close on September 8th. Few details are known about the restoration and who will oversee it, but more information will be made public in November.
