Good junior coaster. The pyramid station was nice-looking and the ride was very long as well. Also, this one provided some decent forces in the many helixes and the ride gives decent views of lots of the parks rides.

When I first rode this, I thought is was the lamest coaster ever created. The second time, I figured out how to enjoy it.

Think of it as a brisk people-mover. It provides a pleasant tour of the scenery and usually has short lines. The ride is similar to the coaster in the mall of America.

Lower your expectations and you might actually enjoy this.

Not bad. Its a good starter coaster for the neophyte, or a relaxing yet fun one for us jaded veterans. The cars are a little cramped for those like me with, shall we say, junk in the trunk. The track is quite long (two lift hills) and open, and like all of Knotts it looks nice and even gives a swell look at other rides. The aztec temple theming is a bit of a plus. No huge drops or crazy turns, and minimal airtime, but still, not bad.

A fun ride, certainly, but not quite up to the level of its Mall of America cousin. Nice a long, this ride is a really good family ride. You can actually feel it in places, if you know what I mean, whereas most family rides lack any sort of forces. Sure, there is no air or anything, but its still a fun ride. Only the lack of awesome scenery hurt the rides rating, I didnt particularly care for where it was located.

This ride was very interesting. While looking into the park, it wasnt clear if it was a family coaster or a a small thrill ride. Quite frankly, Im still not sure what to classify it as after riding it. There are no steep drops on this ride, yet many of the turns pack much more force than one would expect from a family attraction. Also, the ride itself is pretty jerky and rough. If this was a custom Vekoma Roller Skater, then it would easily be an 8 in my book, but Zierer did a pretty lackluster job with smoothing out the design. I have to give it some credit for having a great station, line, landscaping, and a nice ride time, but the coaster itelf didnt perform well.

Just enough fun to pass. Not enough to wait in line over 45min. Thats all i have to say.

Jaguar is an interesting coaster. Though it is quite long (including two lift hills) and covers a lot of territory around the park, it really doesnt do much. There are no huge drops or wicked curves. The cars are pretty small and not super comfortable, so I usually ride by myself in one car and slide back and forth during the mostly unbanked turns. This adds to the fun a bit. This is mostly a family coaster with a freeform layout that will give you a glimpse of some of the other rides at the park (Montezoomas Revenge, Silver Bullet, the Log Ride). I still ride it each and every time I go to Knotts, as it is a pleasant break from the real heavy-duty stuff, and the Mayan temple theming is not bad (even though there is never much of a line so you pretty much just rush through it).

I found this ride great for kids ages 6-9 but not for me. Knotts did a nice job making a family coaster. Jaquar is nice because you get to fly around the lake and relax. I always ride it at Knotts because there is never a line and its preety enjoyable. Jaguar is a fun family ride.

nice Aztec theming but the ride just isnt very thrilling. Some of the turns pretty tight. As someone else said its more like a fast tram ride and you get a good view of Silver Bullet.

A very good junior coaster. Pretty long ride with a nice queue and layout. Some nice elements thrown in. The wait however is usually long and when i was there they were only running one train. Even though the line ended after the loading station we still waited a half-hour.
