Could Knott’s Berry Farm have prevented their stagecoach accident?


Knott's Stagecoach Accident

“Three Knott’s Berry Farm visitors sustained minor injuries on Sunday, Dec. 30, when a stagecoach they were riding in tipped over after one of its wheels detached,” according to ABC News.

Knott’s issued a press statement about the incident, where they disclosed that: “At approximately 1:25 pm on December 30 the left rear wheel detached from one of Knott’s Berry Farm’s stagecoaches with 14 passengers on board, causing the coach to tip to its side. Three guests were transported to a local hospital for minor injuries. The ride will be closed until further notice. Guest safety is Knott’s number one priority.”

“The park was the focus of scrutiny in September when a brake froze on a thrill ride called WindSeeker. The malfunction prompted the temporary closure of the ride at six Knott’s Berry Farms across the country. It was the Southern California amusement park’s second such incident in as many weeks and the latest in a string of international malfunctions on the Dutch-made ride,” according to NBC News.
