Get ready to ride through the Wild West like never before on the Pony Express roller coaster at Knott’s Berry Farm. Named after the famous Pony Express mail service, this roller coaster rides at speeds never imagined in the Old West! Passengers saddle up onto their “horses” and sit astride on this unique coaster. Riders are launched out of the station while reaching a top speed of 38 MPH in less than three seconds. The riders and their “horses” cover a 1,300 foot route which takes them past rapids, Boot Hill and the Calico Railroad resulting in an exhilarating runaway adventure that is sure to leave guests smiling from ear-to-ear! Pony Express is the perfect intermediate coaster designed for families to enjoy together without any inversions or large drops.
