Been having a great day at Knoebels so far today. It’s a very charming park with a nice setting in the valley and an old-school atmosphere that has some great rides. Phoenix is a phenomenal coaster, the buzz bars with no seatbelts made for some very strong and somewhat frightening moments of airtime. Twister is a very fun ride with nice laterals, Flying Turns surprised me with how intense it was, and Impulse is a solid looper. Their Flyers are by far the best I’ve ever been on, their log flume is one of the better ones, and the Carousel was a lot of fun, especially with grabbing the ringy dingy ding-a-ling dings. Can see why most enthusiasts love this park, and I’ll definitely have to come back again in the near future. :)

Glad to hear! Did you ride Kosmo’s curves? If not and you have the opportunity, hop on the back row and ask no questions.

Did Italian Trapeze ever open this year? I noticed it missing during my visit a few weeks ago.

Looking back at the press release for Tumbling Timbers, it was said that the Italian Trapeze would be completely refurbished.

I did end up riding Kozmo’s Kurves, that ride actually has a decent of force for how small it is.

Forgot to add earlier, the food at Knoebels was delicious, especially the waffle sundae I had.

well, SFFT's looked just like that for a good 6-7 months (just the "stalk"). . . and that eventually reopened fully refurbed.

so I'd say since they didn't rip the stalk out of the ground? it's coming back.

^ I have no doubt it's coming back. I just found it curious the ride was taken apart in the middle of the summer season since I thought the rehab was over the winter.

I visited over Memorial Day weekend and I don't believe it was assembled then either.

Waiting for parts from Europe!

^ Thanks! I was curious since SFNE kept disassembled and reassembled their wave swinger at least twice over the past year.
