Knott's Berry Farm's Screamin’ Swing and GhostRider are closing, one of them for good


Knott’s Berry Farm sent out a message today that two of their rides are closing, one temporarily and one for good.

The Screamin’ Swing, a giant swing ride that swings riders back and fourth, will be closing for good on September 8th.  Screamin’ Swing opened back in 2004  at the park.

GhostRider, the parks famous wooden roller coaster will be closing temporarily on September 8th as well for “a comprehensive restoration.”

“The full restoration of the ride is just the beginning of what we have in store for the 75th anniversary celebration of Ghost Town in 2016.” said Raffi Kaprelyan, vice president and general manager at Knott’s Berry Farm.

More details about the restoration of GhostRider will be released in November as the parks 75th anniversary gets closer.
