What are ART trains? Anyone have a picture of the new trains? I'm wondering why they replaced the trains only after a few years. Like many new coasters, I rode Impulse while holding the lap bar away from me, as it gets too tight. (Just a comment, I'm sure lots of people like a tight lap bar).
ART Engineering GmbH/ART Product GmbH. Lagoon worked with them on BomBora, Cannibal, and their upcoming new coaster, provided trains for BomBora and Cannibal, and provided new Bogies for Spider and Wicked a couple years ago.

From what I've been told, Knoebels came out last fall to check out the new bogies on Wicked and checked out the trains on Cannibal. They certainly made the better decision, even after Lagoon replaced Wicked's Chassis 2 years ago, those ART Trains and Restraint System is just Superior to many others out there. I can hardly wait to see if they have the onboard hydraulic pumps and/or lighting.

I knew they looked familiar. They're pretty much two-car Cannibal trains. Fascinating.

Knoebels has announced that the campground will be opening on June 11th, but the park will not be open yet at that time. There's no mention of the cottages, which I assume won't open until the park does since the office for them is in the main park, not the campground. Some sign of progress though.

Still hoping for something closer to normal by time my end of August cottage reservation comes around...crossing my fingers hard as I can here.

The amusement park is not accessible since it is an active construction zone.

That sounds interesting, I wonder what that construction could be referring to.

They had mentioned over the off season that they were upgrading all of their restrooms (which, as much as I love the park...did badly need it), but I wouldn't be surprised if they were taking the chance with the extended downtime to get some other projects done too. As far as I've seen they haven't actually announced anything as of yet, though.

^Agreed, a bathroom update/upgrade would be much appreciated.

Looks like they are building a new bathroom and new pavilion.

Seriously. As much as I like Knoebels, most of their restrooms seem to date back to WWII.
