During July of 2001 the Windjammer was demolished.
During 1999 a apparel company confronted the park about the use of the Windjammer Surf Racers name. So the name was changed to just Jammer until the naming issue was resolved.
The Windjammer did not operate frequently due to mechanical problems. Knott's spent an additional $2 million USD on repairs and inspections over the roller coaster's short life. Due to these troubles in March of 2000, Knott's filed suit against Togo seeking $17 million USD in damages. The problems listed in the suit included misaligned tracks, defective safety restraints and wrinkles in the main frame of the trains. In October 2003 the jury rejected the suit after a five week trial.
