Featuring six inversions, Silver Bullet is an inverted rollercoaster at Knott's Berry Farm designed to make riders feel like a shot fired from a gun.
The ride opened at the park on 7th December 2004 and reportedly cost $16million to build. It is an Inverted Coaster model from renowned Swiss manufacturer B&M.
Silver Bullet's station is situated in Ghost Town, but its lengthy 3125ft long track winds its way through the Fiesta Village and Indian Trails areas too. During their trip, riders experience a vertical loop, cobra roll, zero-G roll and two corkscrews, plus a water-skimming upwards helix finale.
As could be expected from a B&M Inverted Coaster, Silver Bullet is silky smooth and moves through its various elements with precision and slickness. It is fun, and the finale helix is a nice addition which helps set it apart from other coasters of the same model.
