Interesting Star Flyers go that fast, never knew it. But, it does sounds like some kind of drop tower or Star Flyer. Hopefully this opens with Flying Turns next year..one can hope.

Yes, but there are still "manufacturer specifications". If the manufacturer says that a ride can't safely go above 43mph, then it can't safely go above 43mph. Knoebels may run some of their flat rides "faster" than other parks, but I'm pretty sure that they're still running them safely.

I don't understand why Flying Turns would have to live up to "GP expectations". If they had the ride plastered all over the website and consistently said lots of stuff on how super-fantastic it would be, then I would totally agree with you. But, the only hype that the ride is getting is through the little display at the entrance to the queue. They seem like they're being very humble about it.
Plus, if Flying Turns was really the money pit that a lot of people are making it out to be, Knoebels wouldn't have been able to build Black Diamond or install this mysterious new attraction for this season.
I just said last year that they needed one of these! Couldn't be happier with this addition, it's one of the best types of drop towers out there, adds more thrill, and is just the perfect fit to the park!
