I will be going to PPP for the first time tomorrow. Looks like I may have picked a good time to go if Flying Turns does open.

If it does open I will give the Tapatalk app a shot and post some pics.

Pictures being posted of people riding Flying Turns! If any of our TPR members are going to be at Knoebels this weekend it would be great to get some photos & video if Flying Turns really does open to the public. Please let us know!

I've never been to PPP before. Are most of the rides open?


Everything except the water rides is open during the afternoon. At night, only certain rides are open. Official schedule at www.knoebels.com/images/pdf/MediaDownloads/Phunfest2013.pdf

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^ Thank you! That is the flyer I was looking for. $24.00 is not a bad price at all.

I had to look and see how late they announced Black Diamond (since they haven't actually announced Flying Turns yet!) and it appears that Black Diamond was announced sometime around 6 PM the day before PPP. So there's still a chance they'll announce Flying Turns.

The other possibility I've been thinking of is that, since the line is bound to be outrageous with the capacity being so low, they might not announce it, but make it a PPP-only ride.

I have a feeling that a zombie apocalypse is going to be more enjoyable than PPP this year... :lol:

But kudos to the park for sticking with the project and finally getting it done.

I just want to throw this out there... I was there for the Twister opening day where the line was HOURS long and that was a train that held 24 people. How many people does the Flying Turns train hold?

So 3 considering the group of people who will be at the park this weekend. And if there is a total weight restriction per train, then it might only be 1! :Pr
