Definitely do the Yuengling Brewery Tour here is a Photo TR I did a couple years back http://themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=72115&hilit=Knoebels+Yuengling

Larry I loved tbe Bayern Curve when I went to Kennywood. It is crazy intense.

The retracking for Phoenix is going to be glorious. Can’t wait to take a spin this summer.

^Thanks for the awesome TR. I remember reading it when you originally posted it, which was the original inspiration for us to eventually go to the brewery.

In driving in and out of town, it appeared to be your typical blue-collar, redneck coal-mining Pennsylvania town. IE: settled in hilly terrain with a lot of lower to middle income housing, lots of Dollar General/Dollar Tree stores & a couple of Sheetz stores/gas stations sprinkled in for good measure.

God, Emily and I love driving through towns and looking at the tell tale signs of shadyness. Quick loan places, tire shops, run down fast food places, small used car lots, run down looking bars, check cashing establishments, convenience marts, and what you mentioned. Toss in a few gun shots and the smell of weed coming from every other car on the roadway and it's just like the small city I work for. I'll feel right at home...

Having been through that town a few times (a few times too many), this is truth. You do have one of the coolest run down looking bars anywhere though.

Of course we all Knoebels is great at their wooden coaster maintenance, but I've heard KW is also top notch.


Phoenix and Twister run like they're brand new every single day of the year. You're fine. There's no such thing as a rough ride on either of them unless you're a complete bitch and think Twister is rough (believe it or not some people actually find it rough... actual, honest-to-god real people that live among us). It "is" aggressive, but not rough. Phoenix is B&M smooth on a classic wood coaster. :lol:


Twister, last I rode it, was a fair bit rougher than when it was new. It's not quite incredibly rough, it's still an enjoyable ride, but it's a fair bit rougher than it was when it was new.
