Knott's Berry Farm Log Ride

The famous Knotts Berry Farm log ride is currently closed for renovation and redesign. The historic ride is undergoing its first major renovation since first being built in 1969. The ride was originally called the Calico Log Ride before being renamed as the Timber Mountain Log Ride. The ride brings guests on a journey through picturesque scenery while in a log flowing through rushing water before a 42-foot free fall from the height of an eight-story building.

Garner Holt Productions is doing the complete redesign of the log ride scheduled to reopen on Memorial Day weekend.

Garner Holt is the largest theme park developer of animatronics, and has built nearly 3,000 animation figures. Garner Holt is working on the redesign of the Timber Mountain Log Ride by adding new scenes and characters. Most of the scenes on the Timer Mountain Log Ride will come to life with the animatronic magic of Garner Holt.

The new Timber Mountain Log Ride will be transformed into an animated magical world right in the heart of the historic Knott’s Berry Farm.

While the ride is currently closed for renovations, The OC Mom Blog got a chance to get a behind the scenes look at the construction. We were brought inside of the ride, and had a chance to see parts of the ride that have never before been shared with the public.

While inside of the ride, they are currently in the heat of the construction process. Workers took a break while we got a chance to see how the construction is going.

There were wires, construction tools and ladders all around the construction zone as the ride becomes transformed.

We also got a chance to see different parts of the ride like the electrical boxes and parts that operate the ride.
