Knott's Berry Farm in California will debut Pony Express, the first launched motorbike-style coaster in the United States, in 2008. A full announcement is still forthcoming from the park, but a media release of 2008
projects on Cedar Fair's web site mentions the new attraction. The low-to-the-ground steel coaster will feature customized straddle seating to represent the horseback theme on two trains of 12 riders each. Besides an initial launch into a course of banked curves and hairpin turns, little else
is known about the ride, however industry sources have revealed the manufacturer to be Zamperla. Pony Express will be the ninth roller coaster at Knott's Berry Farm.
