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.


Hold the sail away from the center as far as it goes. Should cause it to stop snapping pretty quick. I usually do this to keep the stricter ops from slowing it down.
The Knoebels flyers are the greatest thrill ride ever made. If anyone sees Harry at the park can you tell him I'm sorry for breaking his ride and getting him in trouble.

Hey everyone. Thanks for all the food suggestions. We ate our way through the (very crowded) park yesterday trying everything from the pierogies to the potato cakes, pickles and pork chops on sticks, waffles ice cream sandwiches, and more. Everything was wonderful. Best pickles I ever had, no shit.

Oh and also- Phoenix is the real f**king deal, huh? Jesus.

Awesome! So glad you finally made it out there. Phoenix is just the best. Almost as good as pierogis.

Phoenix is legit! It's really wild in the rain, too. It's amazing how it's so consistent - first rides of the day or last of the night it's fantastic.

Hello! I went to PPP in 2017, couldn’t make it last year. Tried to reach out to Knoebels to confirm some details but they couldn’t confirm one way or another whether Club TPR was still an approved enthusiast group for the event. Can anyone shed light on this?

I have not heard anything from them one way or another. I don't see why we wouldn't be an approved group as we have been in the past.

^Yesh, I figured as such! I’ll register and it should all be a okay! They didn’t post a list on the Facebook event like they’ve done in years past, just said like ‘card-carrying member of an approved enthusiast group’ or something. Thanks Robb!
