HomeTheme ParkPony Express reopens

Knott’s Berry Farm reopened the Pony Express coaster after they finished their investigation into why the brakes failed to stop the two cars from colliding.  Turns out that the fin brakes had been painted, which allowed the train to slide through the braking mechanism.  The park was unaware that this was a problem because they didn’t test the coaster with a ‘short launch’, and only tested  a normal run.
