I still haven't been to Knoebels so haven't ridden it as Black Diamond but we used to love the sh*t out of it as kids in WW.

All that was reused was the track from what I understand. Themeing is all Knoebels.


Ahh, you're right, I'm confusing Golden Nugget with Kennywood's Gold Rusher! But my point stands as far as, I thought it was a pretty popular ride!

^ It was popular, people were definitely riding it. At the same time everyone was coming off the ride with the same confused look.

That "Impulse in the flower garden" picture is one of the best pics I've seen on here in some time. Nice shot!
That coaster dad [272] and that coaster kiddo [152]. Road trip buddies for life.
Dad's faves: Fury 325. Phantom's Revenge. Intimidator 305. El Toro. Skyrush.

Kiddo's faves: Lightning Rod. Goliath (SFGAm). Wicked Cyclone. Millennium Force. Gale Force.
