Then you’re fine. You can marathon the crap out of Phoenix. Hitting Flying Turns first would be wise.

We finally got around to riding the pioneer train and uh.... you had quite a run, “Over the Top”. :lol:

Aw man, I loved Over the Top. It was so great thinking it might be open, going over to it and finding it's closed, being disappointed that I couldn't ride it, wondering if it would ever open. Ah, good times.

Went to the park today with my family and had a great time even with Phoenix running one train. The rides were great as always and we really enjoyed the Halloween decorations. My daughter who is only 4 almost 5 loved the wooden coasters and even liked Twister a little more than Phoenix (may have to disown her).
To be honest Twister was running great, a little rough at times but really hauled, and Phoenix was Phoenix, just a great ride. It was my first time on flying turns and it wasn't bad but pretty short for the long wait. Certainly a unique experience though. I also ride Impulse for the first time and man was it awesome, it's a tad shirt but packs a ton into a compact layout and has a really good first drop. More parks should invest in in these rides especially smaller to medium sized parks.
The park overall was fantastic as always and I love how cheap everything is compared to other parks. Not many places you can get a shirt for $10 and not be a clearance item. My daughter loved every minute of it and was an instant fan of the coasters, another reason Knoebels is so great. Not many parks have such big coasters with a 42" height limit, so she was getting her first real taste of major coasters. Yet she still loves the simple joys of the kiddie rides and making friends while waiting in line. Can't wait to go back, hopefully it won't be too long.

Not sure if it's symbolic but I particularly like how Over the Top got the smallest grave. Too bad that ride couldn't run consistently.

So it's raining a lot today in PA.........should I be concerned about the possibility of Knoebels flooding or does it take an insane amount of rain for that to happen??? :omg:

I live 15 minutes from the park...haven’t seen any flood watches or anything of the sort. We haven’t had much rain recently.

I just saw on accuweather that there was a flood advisory in Elysburg. But I'm guessing an inch of rain isn't going to shut down Knoebels for a week.
