This is by far the worst wooden coaster I've ever ridden.

This new POV video shows how violent it is!

Not only does it look rough (near-flat turns at high speeds?!) but the layout just simply looks bland. I think it's time to call in help.

Our biggest foe is our inclination towards complacency and willingness to settle for mediocrity.

The layout is very bland and uninteresting!!!

You can't really see it but the condition of the ride is horrendous. It looks like it could fall apart. The wood itself is deteriorated in a lot of places and it's splintered practically everywhere.

For those of you that complain about Hurler or Grizzly at KD, Ghostrider makes those two feel like Apollo's Chariot!

Here's a video from the ride's opening day for comparison.

Its a shame Knotts can't maintain this thing. I hear it used to be a top 10 wooden coaster when it first opened. RMC should definitely come in and do their magic to bring the ride back to the way it used to be.

Judging by the POV, the ride still has the crazy speed it used to have, but it just shakes you to death.

Shaking wasn't the only issue I had. When I rode it there were also severe potholes at the bottom of each drops after the first hill, the two before the mid-course brakes and the three after that. It felt like my lower spine was gonna split in half. I wish there was a chiropractor at the exit to give me an exam!

Here are some photo updates from January of Ghostrider's rehab. It's looking good. GCI replaced a ton of wood on the structure, and with their Millennium Flyers running on there, it will run a lot smoother than the PTCs.

This doesn't really surprise me as 2016 hasn't really been the year for on time openings, but Ghostrider has been delayed.

That's no surprise at all. If you would've seen this coaster up close and the horrible condition it was in you'd understand why this rehab is taking a while.

WOW! What a drastic improvement. I'm glad they're now running Millennium Flyers and no longer comes to an almost complete stop on the mid-course brakes. Kudos to GCI for this rehab and refurb!
