It's been a while, but I've found another one! Majorville Bank from "Circus Knights".

This screen grab gave it away - look in the upper left hand corner - Safari Inn!

Nice find Joe! The Safari Inn was a regular fixture in a lot of 1980s tv shows - TJ Hooker even lived there for a time! :D

I was also sorry to hear that Michelle NiCastro (Terry Major) passed away recently. RIP.

Vegas has changed quite a bit since some Knight Rider episodes were filmed here.
I went to one of the newest casinos yesterday - Aria. http://www.arialasvegas.com/
It's located at City Center, just south of the Bellagio which is south of Caesar's Palace on the west side of the strip. The architecture is stunning and the facilities are green - more sustainable with efficient air conditioning and materials. That doesn't even include the hotels, residences and retail center there. Although I only had time to go to casual dining, it was amazing.

The Knight Rider Festival III http://knightriderfestival.com/2011/is in Vegas March 18-19, 2011.
Be there!

vegas has changed alot since i moved here in 97, speeking of city center i work at aria hotel yes its a upscale hotel and casino.

Sorry in advance. I didn't feel like nor have the time to look through 30 pages, and the search function wasn't cooperating. But have we found the supposed toy factory from A Good Knights Work? I don't recall seeing it.

As far as I am aware, no one has found it.
Also no one has found the multi storey car park from the outdoor racing in Knights of the Fast Lane.

I could have sworn that the location of the toy factory was in this thread, but I can't find it....I'm pretty sure Paul @ KRA has the address.

I certainly do! The Triple-M Toy Factory is located at 9628 Irondale Ave, Chatsworth, CA 91311.

Google Maps:

I remember seeing it used in an A-Team episode once, but I can't remember what episode.

I just found out the location of 'Marberry Motel' as well as
other locations in this episode.

Actual name and location:
Ramada Burbank
2900 N. San Fernando Blvd
Burbank, CA 91504
http://ramadaburbank.com/

(top: KR-scene, bottom: Google Street View)
Marberry.jpg


It's quite rewarding in this game of KR scene hunting,
which read just like CSI story :) I watched the DVD
back and forth and cannot find any clue of the 'Marberry
Motel'. Finally, there was a scene where Michael sneaked into the
motel, where 'Queen City Steel' can be spotted. I googled
it, and it still exists today!

Queen City Steel
2801 N San Fernando Blvd, Burbank

Then I checked across the street (using Google Earth, show lodging).
There your go! Ramada Burkbank!

coming next ... other locations in this episode


anyone know where the Marberry Times building is? It looks fairly distinctive, and you see plenty of locations around it.

Wow thanks. They must have filmed that from the car park opposite.
Did we get the location of where the race cars were all parked, where the 'Rooster' was trying to crack open KITTs hood?

Does anyone have the location of the hotel/pool area from KITTNAP? where he meet the bad guys and is shown the photos of bonnie and karen? It's by a marina. Looks similar to the location we saw in this thread where kitt drives around a corner under a tree.

Hi all.
I just put a KR on, and realised I don't think anyone has been out to the desert, and trying to replicate the exact filming position the camera crew were at when KITT storms toward it and under it.

Doubltess they were on a gantry, ladder or something. Sue may have done that with her car.

ALSO....

SKY KNIGHT
Where is that cinema "going to the movies" location where KITT and Michael check that phone, and then spike the bad guys tyres when they leave?

Great photos that are posted guys!! Thanks for sharing this information! It's nice to be able to drive around and find locations from the actual show! I hope to make it out West this summer to tour the area myself! :D

KITTfan wrote:Maybe this pic from knightreplicas might help, it's probably a promopic taken during Inside Out episode as Michael wears blue shirt just like the one in the episode and the building looks similar to the one in question. There's some hills visible in the background:

Does anyone know where I can buy a belt or just the belt buckle like that one?
I've got a replica of the MK leather jacket (worn season 2 onwards, with the 'X' design on the back).
But great to get buckle belt like that one. Be ready to wear at KnightCon in the UK this year, with the jacket.

AusKnight2K wrote:OK, peoples, I think I found the location where that awesome burnout that KITT did ... :dance:

The shopping centre in the background is Granary Square on the corner of McBean Parkway and Arroyo Park Drive in Santa Clarita.

It looks like they've built a smaller building right in front on the corner obstructing the same view at street level, but the roof line of the front of the large buildings are the same ...

Image

I think the other location where KITT first spoke to Michael is going to be a bit tricky compared to this one ... :shock:


This is the same shopping plaza that can be seen in the beginning of "Knight of the Chameleon", where Michael's chase ends!

While over on the west side of the U.S. for the Knight Rider Festival, I took an excursion and managed to snap a few photos of some filming locations...not the greatest but you get the idea!

Beverly Garland Holiday Inn from "Speed Demons", "Hearts of Stone" and a slew of others!
Image

"KITT the Cat" black tower!
Image

Sue inspired me and I finally visited a location that I have wanted to see since I was a little kid - the FLAG mansion! Unfortunately, this is as close as you can get!

Was just watching Matlock (episode "The Angel") and the FLAG mansion on Arden Rd. is used pretty extensively inside and out as the scene of a murder.

Why am I watching Matlock? Guilty pleasure. I'm a sucker for a good whodunit.

Am watching Knight of a Thousand Devils - with 'Becker', crossing the desert in the dune buggies.
A few locations I would love to know of.
The house at the start of the episode. Seems to have a distinctive driveway and garden in front - tho that was 20+ years ago!
The bridge where Becker meets the guy. It's white, with one simple curve in it. Is that a recognisable bridge in the area?
The area where the cafe is and MK helps Anna with her breaks... tho that could be very separate places.
