Photo: At Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park, California, veterans can check out the newest ride, WindSeeker, which shoots visitors up 301 feet to twirl around a podium for 60 seconds at a 45-degree angle, rotating between 25 and 30 mph. Due to the long airtime and legs unrestrained, riders experience a spectacular sense of weightlessness which enhances the feeling of free flight. Though not quite as thrilling as flying a military craft at mach speed, the ride is safe, fun and perfect for veterans!
There are ceremonies throughout California honoring veterans on Friday, November 11. In addition to the celebrations, several theme parks and restaurants in California are offering free admission or food. Aquarium of the Pacific, Hooters, Subway, McCormick & Schmicks and Olive Garden are a few.

“I want to Thank Knotts and Cedar Fair for this incredible act of kindness in honoring all Active Duty Military and Veterans in this very special and appreciated way,” said retired Army Staff Sgt. Horace Kimble, a Vietnam Era Vet. “This really means a lot to us, who help keep America’s Freedom Alive. The fact that Knotts has been doing the tribute for 22 years is amazing!”
