Knott’s Welcomes Voyage to the Iron Reef
*Disclosure: I attended the Media Preview of Voyage to the Iron Reef for purposes of this post. The opinions in this article are my own. *
On May 15, 2015, Voyage to the Iron Reef™ surfaced and made its way to Knott’s Berry Farm in beautiful Southern California. Voyage to the Iron Reef is a spectacular new interactive 4-D ride that the entire family will enjoy. Guests will embark on a thrilling journey into the depths of the Boardwalk to fight the Kraken Queen and save the park from a watery doom on Voyage to the Iron Reef™. Save Knott’s in this cutting edge media-based battle as you journey through enchanting underwater forests, disorienting ocean current tunnels, and mysterious mechanical wreckage, high definition 3-D animation will surround you at every turn. It is sure to please riders of all ages, we went on it four times in a row and still wanted to go back for more!
Come join in the fun with us!
The ride was christened with a fabulous opening ceremony, which you can watch below and will get you in the mood to want to come and kick some Kraken butt!
Do you have what it takes to become a brave deep-sea navigator? Climb aboard this submarine-inspired ride and find out! 😉 Vehicles embark on an adventure into the Iron Reef that combines the fun of a theme park ride with the interactivity of high-tech video games. We couldn’t wait to get on and ride! We put on our glasses a little early we just couldn’t wait… 😉
In line for the Iron to Reef to see if we can help save the park!
The submarines navigate 11 colossal scenes that are filled with menacing sea creatures and many hidden surprises that react to the accuracy of the freeze blasters controlled by each guest on board. Riders aim their freeze rays at ballooning mechanical puffer fish, iron clad octopus, and other exciting 3-D creatures as they compete against their friends and family to blast the most sea life and save Knott’s from a watery doom. The number of creatures taken is digitally displayed in the undock area and players with the highest scores enter the Iron Reef’s Hall of Fame. Every rider earns a score, which makes every trip to the Iron Reef a competitive, repeatable adventure. The park is also opening a refreshed 8,186 sq. ft. arcade and a new retail shop called Nautilus, and will reopen the updated Laser Tag compound later this summer.
