My favorite wooden coaster ever. It is very smooth, is totally out of control, and packs plenty of airtime into a twister layout. This I find to be an engineering masterpiece, seeing as twisters usually dont have too much airtime. But it made sure it kept up the tradition of a twister and made you very disoriented. I could not recreate this coaster after riding 5 times...it would be impossible. This ride is even better at night.

Four years after my first ride on Ghostrider, I discovered the chance to go back to the park once again with some friends/locals so I could re-ride the most intense ride ever. The morning I was going to the park, I woke up with the pain of thinking that my #1 may have lost some of its greatness due to its increasing age. I was wrong, thank the Lord. I then Piled into the car with my groupies and we began our trek to Buena Park, the city where Knotts Berry Farm resided. As we entered into the city limits, Knotts Berry Farm came into view as drove closer to the Threshold. On our way to the parking lot, we passed several attractions on the way; Xcelerator, Perilous Plunge, and Ghostrider. We finally arrived at the entrance of Knotts and made our way through the park, riding Xcelerator, Montezumas Revenge, and other attractions as they passed. We continued our journey in the park, but I hesitated to ride Ghostrider, scared insane that it might turn out to be a bad ride. And finally, the time came where I had gained enough confidence to expect the worst from Ghostrider(even though I was expecting a good ride, at least). I waited in line for about 30 min. and then got in line for the very best seat one the ride, the very back. after an other 10 minutes of queuing, it was finally my time to ride. Worried and excited, I rode the train as it slowly pulled out of the station and rolled through a few curves, picking up speed. Once entering the lift, it was a tall but quick ride to the top. Suddenly, the front of the train crested the lift and whipped the back of the train over the lift, creating insane airtime. I couldnt be happier as I ride through the first half of the ride, before the mid-brake. It was loaded with constant chaos and pandemonium as I rode through airtime filled hills and intense lateral G curves all while continuously bumping up and down throughout the whole experience, creating a brilliantly thrilling ride. The mid-brake provided a conveniently placed rest, before the ride got even more intense. A sudden drop after the brake run rekindled the face-ripping speed while providing excellent airtime in the process. The ride only got wilder until it reached the finally, a wickedly intense, tightly coiled triple helix/ airtime extravaganza. The train flew into the helix with great speed causing all of my senses to go numb. Throughout helix were bunny hills, Producing some untameibly wild negative Gs. After the finally, the train careened into the final break run as I listened to excited clapping and cheering as well as sighs of relief from my fellow riders. Sure enough, it was the best coaster out of the 125 coasters I had ridden in the 12 years of coastering. I was so incredibly happy that my favorite ride hadden’t changed a bit, it was the same as it was the day I first ride it. Once again, and I quote "I couldnt be happier"8)LOLROFL:thumbsup::trophy:

This is the best woodie I have ever been on. This ride is great from start to finish. It is rough, but thats how woodies are, and thats what makes them fun.

This ride is just plain fun. Many people complain that it is rough but it makes up for the roughness with the most airtime I have ever experienced on a wood coaster. The ride lasts a while making really cool. P.S. Shortest line during twilight.

The second best woodie I have ever been on! When you go under the supports, you truely have no idea where you are going! This ride has tons of head-chopper effects, and you never know when its going to end! I thought it was over, but then there was a helix!

I know I am going to get a lot of flack for posting this review, but I can take it. This is supposed to be for HONEST opinions about rides, and this is my opinion. I do not care if the entire planet likes something - if I do not like something, I am not afraid to say so. Maybe my not liking this ride has to do with the fact that I do not generally like roller coasters to begin with, although there are some exceptions. I thought that this one didnt look too bad so I got on it after about an hour in line. I didnt find the drops or twists too terrifying or anything like that, but when I rode it, it was really rough. A few times I bounced up out of my seat a little (not just on the drops) and hit my thigh on the lap bar pretty hard. The three people that went on with me generally love roller coasters, and Im talking the major thriller upsidedown things that I dont like. Of them, two agreed that Ghost Rider was too rough and bouncy, and the other loved it and went on it a few more times. So of course it is a matter of opinion. But flame me if you will, this is my opinion and Im expressing it.

A great woody, the first drop needs retracked, but the airtime is fun and the lats are intense.

This is one of the best, if not best wooden roller coasters I have been on. This is a must ride.

This is by far the best wooden roller coaster I have ever been on. This ride is for you if you are looking for a ride that throws you around and leaves you with a mysterious pain in your shoulder. It was pretty long and very fast. Worthy of a Top Ten slot for wood coasters.
