Another odd question.

What is the best way to get the Flyer to stop snapping once you get it going? Is it to point the sail in one direction? Since I noticed the op was slowing it down on most cycles when someone got wild, I didn't want to go full tilt for the entire ride.

I quickly learned letting go of the sail still caused those things to snap on their own once they got going.

Mini trip report!!


Took a wonderful day trip up to knoebels with my mom, sister, and grandmother on a beautiful saturday in august with temperatures in the low 80s and no humidity. It was their first time there for all three. I visited fornthe first time last year with tpr. Arrived around 11:45 to 2 lanes of inbound traffic, which was expected with this wonderful weather. The park does a wonderdul job with their traffic. Really impressed with that!

Walked around for the first hour or so and then stopped and got lunch at the international food court. Ordered a meatball sub, garlic toast, and a large soda all for $11 dollars. I love it. The food was amazing. Highly recommend the meatball sub. Side note: a security guard saw us looking at the map, confused on where to go, and approached us asking if we needed help. You dont usually see that at six flags or even some cedar fair parks. Staff is so amazing there!

Didnt do any of the coasters but did take a nice relaxing ride on both trains and the scrnic skyway. Watched Group Du Jour at the band shell, really good group that played some good songs. Enjoyed some very good ice cream.

Played fascinations with my mom and sister. Both their first times playing and my mom won on the second game we played. (Beginners luck.) Also did the coal mine museum and knoebels history. Really cool seeing the history of the park with photos and a timeline.

All in all, it was a wonderful and perfect day at the park.

Have to admit, knoebels does a hell of a job with their traffic. Kudos to them.

I wonder if that has a lot to do with the park treating their employees well. People love Knoebels because the employees treat the guests well. The employees enjoy their jobs, and in turn the guests, because Knoebels treats them well? Seems likely to me.

I'm glad you had a good visit. Thanks for sharing.

Definitely is. My sister was talking to a worker who said she drives an hour and a half for work because she loves it. Food lines were busy, but not one employee had an attitude. Staff was incredible.
