Xcelerator Review

We're here at Knotts Berry Farm. After getting in the seats and buckling the seatbelt, you wait for the operator to pull down your lap bar. Once they do that, you just sit there and wait. When you see the orange lights flash on the Xmas Tree lights, you sit and wait for the green. Once you see the green, say good bye to the station. You literally fly out of there like a bat out of hell. The world is a blur as you just zoom by everything near you. But after a few quick seconds, you find yourself twisting up to the sky. As you crest the top hat, you get some nice airtime as you get yanked down to earth. You get a nice yank to the side as well as you roar down that crazy drop. After that 10 seconds of sheer madness, you fly into an overbanked turn. While I know it's not much, at least it does something. After roaring through the first overbanked turn, you roar into the second overbanked turn. You get some nice headchoppers during that overbanked turn. Unfortunetly, the brake run is right there. You come to a nice smooth halt at the brake run. And as you hit that brake run, you're going to be hauled foreward. Xcelerator is forcing you to worship it!!! It gave you an awsome ride and now it's making you thank him for it. If you're a Catholic, you're going to have to go to confession after you're ride for worshipping something that's not God (I wonder wonder how long it'll be until Maverick, X2, and the Floridan B&Ms make you worship them?). After worshipping Xcelerator, you turn around in the station. While Xcelerator may be only 30 seconds, it's still a badass ride!!! I would recommend riding Xcelerator when go to Knotts EVERY time you visit. It's definitely Knotts Berry Farm's star attraction (Lines are shorter in the morning).
