I kind of like it as is. We have our own Orphan Rocker, so screw you, Australia.

He is the guy who designed the Millennium Flyers, after all - that alone should give people some faith!


When Dick came out to announce the winners of the annual costume contest, he did mention that "new trains were being assembled and shipped across the country soon," so take that for what it's worth.

This year was my second PPP and I've already got my sites for next year. I definitely know why some people shy away from this event, but I really think it is what you make of it. To me this event embodies everything that I love about the industry. After a long 6 and 7 day-a-week summer it's so nice to camp out for a weekend, see some familiar faces waiting in just about every single line, it just renews my love for my job and reminds me why I wanted to get into "the biz" in the first place. The park is just so charming every time I visit, but on the Saturday night of PPP it just hits a totally new level.

By the way, I hope that those who did go caught a little bit of the costume parade this year. The photo below may or may not be my friends and I sporting our winning group costumes....

Actual lol :lol:

I'm personally wondering if it will reach a point where the ride becomes so weathered that it will have to be retracked (Or would that be "retroughed"?) before opening to the public.

I love donkeys more than me.

Still amazed about Knoebel's commitment to this ride. Many parks would've demolished the ride after 2-3 years and built something different.

Knoebels has just posted the following question on their Facebook page:
What's 148 feet tall & travels at 47mph?

Let the rumors fly!

Based on the fact that any coaster that tall would travel much faster than 47 mph, something is telling me it might be a drop tower.

My answer: a new ride they purchased.

Just glanced at the main post on FB and didn't even realize it was a teaser for something new, though I couldn't match it up to anything they currently own. Is it sad that my first thought was Twister? (Though at least I was feeling surprised by the idea that it might be that tall and slow.)

Edit: I am now 100% unembarrassed, as the #1 guess on FB is by far Phoenix, with second place going to Twister...
