Coast Rider is a steel wild mouse roller coaster located at Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park, California, USA.

History[edit | edit source]

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 and two other rides on November 1, 2012.[2]

The ride opened on May 25, 2013.

Design[edit | edit source]

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.

Trains[edit | edit source]

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