All New Fiesta Village

Here is just some of what you’ll find in Fiesta Village:

  • Casa California restaurant with made-to-order burritos and tacos

MonteZOOMa: The Forbidden Fortress

This flywheel-launched shuttle coaster was upgraded with exciting changes while keeping the ride’s unique charm.
  • Height requirement: 48 inches or taller
  • Duration: 35 seconds
  • Max Speed: 55 MPH
  • Weight and size restrictions may apply

This thrilling ride 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.

Knott’s Berry Farm shares more about the legend of Montezuma’s gold:

“The legend surrounding the whereabouts of Montezuma’s gold has beguiled treasure hunters far and wide. Many have dredged Mexican rivers, even plunged into the Pacific in search of the riches. But alas, a handful of the clever scavengers have found themselves in the true resting place of the infamous gold - just outside a small village in California, Fiesta Village. The time has come to see if new adventurers can succeed in extracting the gold and break the curse that has fallen upon many who have tried and failed. But, beware the way forward might not always be as expected. Introducing MonteZOOMa: The Forbidden Fortress, a new twist on a revered classic coaster experience that may alter your ability to escape with the treasure once and for all!”
