Xcelerator is an Intamin launched roller coaster located at Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park, California. Xcelerator opened as Intamin AG's first hydraulically-launched roller coaster. The ride is located in the same area of the park where Windjammer Surf Racers once operated.

Elements

Launch TrackTop Hat-Outside

RollbacksEdit

Occasionally, the train will not make it over the hat element. The train will launch, make it part way up the hill, and roll back into the launch. This is normal. It happens on many other coasters, like Top Thrill Dragster or Kingda Ka.

IncidentEdit

On September 19, 2009, a cable snapped on the launch, sending debris flying everywhere. One debris went straight into a 12 year old's leg, thus, a surgery was needed.

TriviaEdit

  • The final round of the cancelled Cartoon Network game show, Brainrush, took place on this coaster. The final contestant would have to spit out answers fitting under a certain catagory (ex. American Idol winners) while riding. They would then gain the option to double their money in a final round where they would be asked only one question. If contestants answered their question right, the coaster would launch, but if they didn't, they would be forced off without getting to ride. In addition, contestants would always receive the opportunity to earn extra money by eating some type of meal before the ride.
