A new expedition awaits with the debut of Calico River Rapids, opening at Knott’s Berry Farm in summer 2019.
Knott’s popular white water raft ride, Bigfoot Rapids, will undergo a major renovation to add new features to the attraction, including new animatronics, themed show scenes, a new story overlay, and dynamic water effects.
Calico River Rapids will take guests on a search for new land on the outskirts of Calico, the themed area in the park’s Ghost Town. Riders will travel through the authentic setting with the help of frontiersmen who have planned the path for settlers to explore.
Rafters will encounter plenty of surprises along the way, like roaring rapids, indigenous wildlife, and unique homesteaders. The circular raft ride vehicle will seat six passengers and travel through twists and turns, rushing waters, and rapids currents as it navigates this unexplored river path.
The attraction will come to life with new animatronics and special effects designed and manufactured by Garner Holt Productions, Inc.
No specific opening date has been revealed for this revamped attraction. Stay tuned to our website for more updates as they are announced. To learn more about other offerings at Knott’s Berry Farm, visit Knotts.com.
