Knott’s Berry Farm’s Sky Cabin has reopened again – Orange County Register

After being closed for more than a year, the Sky Cabin at Knott’s Berry Farm reopened Saturday, Feb. 10.

At nearly 300-feet tall, the Sky Cabin was the tallest structure in Orange County when it opened in 1976. Riders sit inside a donut-shaped room, which slowly revolves as it goes up and down the inner tower, offering a 360-degree panoramic view of the landscape.

Knott’s voluntarily shut down the Sky Cabin after it got stuck 96 feet in the air Dec. 30, 2016 and Orange County Fire Authority firefighters rescued 20 passengers and one operator. The attraction was previously closed from May 2010 through January 2012 and briefly in June 2008.

On Monday, Feb. 12, the Knott’s public relations department released the following statement after confirming that the attraction was back in service:

“Our team here at Knott’s Berry Farm has been working the past several months with State of California officials to re-open Sky Cabin to our guests. Sky Cabin has undergone a thorough and comprehensive review by state inspectors and we have implemented all the state’s requirements. Safety is Knott’s number one priority and we are committed to that with all our guests and employees.”

Park guests will find that the Sky Cabin has also been renovated for a better ride. The updates include newly installed lighting in its tower, all of the cabin’s windows have been replaced and it has new floors, siding and interior paint. Best of all, there’s new air conditioning inside the cabin, which makes it one of the best attractions in the park on a hot day.
