On 13 August 2012, Knott's Berry Farm announced that Perilous Plunge would be closing for good on September 3, 2012, in order to make way for a new attraction. The ride has been replaced by three new rides: Coast Rider, Surfside Gliders and Pacific Scrambler, which all opened in 2013.
Similarly, has anyone died on xcelerator?
Lori Mason-Larez, 40, died of extensive injuries sustained on the attraction, said Bruce Lyle, supervising deputy of the Orange County coroner's office.
Likewise, is WindSeeker open at Knotts?
The parent company of Knott's Berry Farm has temporarily closed all the WindSeeker tower swings in the amusement park chain after the thrill rides stranded visitors hundreds of feet in the air for hours at a time this summer.
