Knott's Berry Farm Rides -- Fiesta Village area

Jaguar Roller Coaster pictures & details

Photo: an Aztec-style temple serves as the Jaguar roller coaster's ride building; Knotts Berry Farm, Buena Park, California Do you have kids who are anxious to ride a roller coaster---but simply get too frightened by large coasters?

Families will be interested in knowing that a roller coaster their kids can enjoy is here in the Knott's Fiesta Village section. The Jaguar Roller Coaster is its name, and the ride's attractive building shaped like an Aztec Temple keeps right in-theme with this section's vibrant "Old Mexico" atmosphere.

You may not scream too loudly on Jaguar, yourself, but your elementary-school aged children will think it's quite a huge coaster! If your kids are out-growing the small junior coaster in Camp Snoopy, the Jaguar would make a nice introduction to the world of adult roller coaster fun.

One other "plus" about riding the Jaguar in Fiesta Village at Knotts Berry Farm is that the scream-seeking visitors go elsewhere---leaving the Jaguar's line much shorter for families!

Even though the Jaguar is more of a "family" style coaster rather than a "wild ride," kids still need to be at least 48" tall in order to ride the Jaguar. Expectant moms may not ride.

Montezooma's Revenge roller coaster...

...a purposeful misspelling of Aztec king Montezuma's name (because this ride ZOOMS!)

Picture: Montezooma's Revenge roller coaster at Knott's Berry Farm "Montezooma's Revenge" is a popular roller coaster in Fiesta Village at Knotts Berry Farm. It's fast and it's furious!

Once you're harnessed into this linear-style coaster, you'll be launched out of the loading station, propelled from 0 to 55 MPH in only 3 seconds! What a "woosh!"

Of COURSE you'll make an upside-down loop on this ride! And then, since the track in not circular, you'll head towards a tower in the the one seen in this photo at your right.

Picture: Montezooma's Revenge ride at Knott's Berry Farm, California After hanging in the air at the top of the tower for several seconds, you'll swoosh back down the tower and zoom again through the loop---BACKWARDS.

Photo note: To your left, you see the picture of a Montezooma's Revenge ride car.

The name of the ride is quite clever---did you catch it? It's a combo of Aztec King Montezuma's name and the word "zoom" you'll be doing when you're aboard this ride!

There is a height restriction of 48" tall to rice Montezooma's Revenge roller coaster; expectant ladies are not allowed to ride.

Other Knott's rides in Fiesta Village

Knott's Berry Farm Merry Go Round

There are still more rides in Fiesta Village at Knotts Berry Farm to talk about.

*The Merry Go Round--- The Knotts Berry Farm merry go round is a 100+ year old antique beauty. It features 48 hand-carved animals that your family will surely admire. Whereas a "carousel" is noted for having only HORSES to ride, a "merry go round" has many different animals from which you may choose. The Knott's Berry Farm merry go round has fun zebras, pigs, goats...and yes, even horses, too!

Merry go round height requirement: There is no minimum height required to ride the merry go round at Knott's Berry Farm. However, children under 46" tall must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Expectant moms MAY ride.

La Revolucion thrill ride

Picture: La Revolucion thrill ride at Knotts Berry Farm in California *La Revolucion Thrill Ride: The La Revolucion ride at Knott's Berry Farm is a wild ride shaped somewhat like a giant claw. It sends riders spinning, while at the same time soaring them up into the air to great heights. You'll even turn completely upside down at times!

Riders wear an over-the-shoulders style harness for safety's sake. You'll see pictures of La Revolucion (Revolution) to your left and in the slide show at the top of this page.

La Revolucion minimum height requirements: You'll need to be at least 48 inches tall to ride La Revolucion. In addition to the fact that this ride is scary, kids need to be tall enough for the over-the-shoulders restraint system to fit snugly so they can't fall out. In addition, too large a size may cause the restraint to close properly. Riders will be asked to remove items which might fall and hurt the spectators below (things like sunglasses, hats, flip flops, etc.)

Wave Swinger & Dragon Swing rides

Picture: Wave Swinger swing ride at Knott's Berry Farm *The Wave Swinger--- This Knott's Berry Farm ride is a traditional "swing ride:" You sit in chairs that look like playground swings, then your swing rises into the air as you circle a central hub faster and faster. You can see a picture of the Wave Swinger ride at Knott's to your left.

Height requirements for the Wave Swinger: There are a number of rules and regulations for riding the Wave Swinger. For one, no children under the age of 6 are allowed to ride. Guests must be taller than 48" in height to board. Park guests weighing over 230 pounds may not ride. All of these rules are designed to keep people safe on this ride. Though it isn't a fast or scary ride, it does rise high off the ground. Guests who are too little might fall out from under the simple belt lap; guests who are too large might fall over the belt. And the last rule? Expectant moms aren't allowed to ride.

*The Dragon Swing...This is a pendulum-style ride. Here, you'll climb into a boat and be rocked from side to side, as if you were in a giant baby's cradle. Riders at the ends get a much wilder ride than do those folks sitting in the middle. That's OK, though---parents and smaller kids can sit in the center of the boat, and teens can occupy an end seat. And, everyone in the family will be happy with the type of motion they experienced!

Children must be 48" tall to ride the Dragon Swing unaccompanied. children 42" through 48" tall are welcome to board, but must be accompanied by an adult. Pregnant guests may not ride.

Hat Dance and Wind Seeker rides

Picture: Hat Dance ride at Knott's Berry Farm * The Hat Dance... This is a spinning ride on the same order as the more famous Mad Tea Party ride at Disneyland Park. Guests may choose how mild---or wild---a ride they wish to experience by either turning a wheel in the center of the car (to help the ride spin around in circles) or just sit there doing nothing.

The Hat Dance ride features vibrantly-colored ride cars in a myriad of shades. This attraction makes great "eye candy" in the Fiesta Village section of Knott's theme park. It's almost as fun to look at as it is to ride!

Height restrictions for the Hat Dance ride: Children must be 42" tall to ride the Hat Dance alone. Children 36" through 42" are welcome to board, but must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult. Expectant mothers may not ride.

You can see pictures of the Hat Dance ride to your right and in the photo slide show at the top of this page.

* Wind Seeker: Wind Seeker is the newest ride in Knotts Berry Farm's "Fiesta Village" themed area. What's the Wind Seeker? It's a tall tower that will take you up over 300 feet in the air for a scenic view of the area. The height itself will give your tummy some butterflies at first, but once you're accustomed, you'll enjoy the view. As opposed to the Knott's cabin-style scenic tower, you'll be outdoors with the wind in your face. It's an experience you won't soon forget!
