I didn't go to Knotts as much as Disneyland, but I always loved the optical illusion room where you walked in it all crooked like...and the jail where the sheriff knew all about you-that was worth a laugh once and my Dad got a big kick out of it and the mine roller coaster.

I also love the mine train ride...my favorite ride there.

And does anyone remember the covered wagon show?

Thanks for the name Lucas...I have that great book and should have looked it up. I love that mine roller coaster scene in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom...reminds me of the Knott's ride.

aparently the sister version of this attraction is at the calico ghost town which is located not too far from the current location of Mojave Oasis...people going to that event can make a brief side trip to the calico ghost town which also has the mine train ride.....

I am not a big roller coaster fan...so i like all the odd, relaxing rides...and miss a lot of the old cool stuff they tore down. At least they still have the mystery lodge!

The Covered Wagon Show was a living/multi media diorama telling the story of the Knott's family coming West

Knott's Preserved: Covered Wagon Show

There was also the Covered Wagon Camp in which the audience would sit around a campfire and listen to live cowboy entertainment. As Western movies became less popular, they changed the show to a live stunt show.

Covered Wagon Camp

As a kid, I enjoyed the Cowboy singers then when I was a pre-adolescent, I thought it was the corniest cheesiest thing ever. Now I am wishing they would bring back the Cowboy singers. At least they now have Krazy Kirk and the Hillbillies (former house band at Disneyland under a different name)
Krazy Kirk and the Hillbillies

BTW, did you know that Knott's Berry Farm is where the Everly Brothers played their last show together?

I think you hit on an important point King...we loved Knotts as kids but as we got older it was not as cool as Disneyland was. But thinking back, I too would love to relive that nostalgia.

Thanks for the great links everyone!!!

I used to be obsessed with the devil that ran the volcano.
