Xcelerator The Ride

Rocket 0-82 mph in 2.3 seconds hundreds of feet into the air before immediately hurtling 90 degrees straight down on Xcelerator at Knott's Berry Farm.

 
 

Slick back your hair and grab your leather jacket; happy days are here again! This high-octane coaster fires up its engines on the Boardwalk with chrome-plated, flame-emblazoned '57 Chevys and speed. From the minute you enter the station, you're transported back to the time of greasers, beatniks, and cubes. Step up to the platform and fasten yourself into one of XCELERATOR's yellow and orange flame-emblazoned, candy-apple red or purple fin-tailed hot rods.You are now in the passenger seat and the driver is racing for pink slips. Hold on tight and make sure your knuckles are white because this baby burns rubber across 2,202 feet of cool coral track.
