Coast Rider is a steel wild mouse roller coaster located at Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park, California, USA. It opened in 2013 along with Surfside Gliders and Pacific Scrambler.


Coast Rider opened on the former plot of Perilous Plunge, which closed on September 3, 2012. On October 22, 2012, Cedar Fair (the owner of Knott's Berry Farm) filed a trademark for Coast Rider.[1] The park officially announced Coast Rider, Pacific Scrambler and Surfside Gliders on November 1, 2012.[2]

The ride opened on May 25, 2013.


This ride differs slightly from the standard Wild Mouse (large park) model provided by Mack Rides. The differences are more than likely in the station and brake run.


Single car trains. Riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 4 riders per car.
