MoneteZooma's Revenge - Knott's Berry Farm

Montezooma’s Revenge Relaunching at Knott’s Berry Farm in 2025 as MonteZOOMa: The Forbidden Fortress

Montezooma’s Revenge is going to be returning in 2025 as MonteZOOMa: The Forbidden Fortress at Knott’s Berry Farm. Knott’s Berry Farm made the announcement this last week about this popular attraction. It originally opened on May 21, 1978. It has the distinction of being one of only eight flywheel-launched units manufactured for theme parks around the world. It also happens to be the oldest looping shuttle roller coaster still operating in its original location. The ride closed in February 2022 for its refurbishment that is expected to last until next year.

About Montezooma’s Revenge

Knott’s Berry Farm’s Montezooma’s Revenge® is an exciting ride that catapults passengers out of the station at 55 miles per hour, up through a 76 foot, 360° loop, and then to the top of a 148-foot tower.  After a moment of weightlessness, the train zooms down the tower, backward, goes through the loop, and passes through the station up a second 112 foot tower, then down the tower into the station.  The propulsion system is based on an aircraft carrier’s launch system and gives the rider the thrill of traveling 0 to 55 miles per hour in just 4.5 seconds.
