In my newspaper today, the Daily Item, they had an article about Knoebels. In it they stated that Flying Turns should open sometime between Memorial Day and July 4 and that the new kiddie coaster will be called "Kosmo's Kurves", opening hopefully by June.

Another article, also poses a possible location for the Golden Nugget. The spokesman for the park says that they "may locate it in close proximity to the park's mining museum."

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

they want it to be “fun" and “not scary?” well, there goes all my excitement… well, no, not really: i've always wished i had a chance to ride one of the original Flying Turns, and i'm glad that someone is trying to bring them back, but one of the reasons why is because i've heard about how incredibly intense and frightening they supposedly were! when i heard the ride was running “too fast” i thought it meant “too dangerous”, not “too scary” — “too scary” is a good thing!

Don't let this donkey melt you with its laser eyes!

Well, that's bad news for ACE as the preservation conference is set up for the May 15th - 17th with plenty of ERT on FT scheduled... then again, it wouldn't be a stretch for Knoebels to open the coaster a bit pre-maturly and have the official opening between Memorial Day and July 4th... afterall, they opened Twister for the ACE conference several years ago while the carpenters were still building the station and queue and other workers were still connecting support wires...

Kosmo's Kurves? That sounds like a kiddy ride, not a suitable repacement for the High Speed Thrill Coaster. Hopefully it's just a poor name choice and not a lame coaster.

Dudes, there's still time to rename the Miler. Save Kosmo's Kurves for when you build a wooden wild mouse.

I'm a little worried about talk of taming the Flying Turns too. I'm hoping to see a ride that looks more like the test video and less like an Intamin bobsled!

Thought "Laser Snake Horse" was real.

Hopefully Knoebels won't have a limit on how tall you have to be to ride the kiddie. If the Flying Turns does open up this summer then I will definitely take a day trip there & ride it.

WELL YOU HERE IT FIRST HERE.

Last night at Dinner for ACE's Spring Preservation Con Knoebels revealed to us the new name of the Golden Nugget will be.........


Black Diamond


He also said construction will start once they can build a new enclosure for the Eagles the park has as that is where the Black Diamond will go.

Dick also asked if there is anything else we would like them to move :b


Best of luck Knoebels!

Awesome news; I like the new name.

When he asked if there was anything else you would like to be moved, did anyone respond?

Actually my friend shouted out the Big Dipper and Dick responded

"well unfortunately we are running out of room"

And about the other 2 the Turns is missing the section leading to the second lift and the Break run is still tore up. We got a through tour.

There is still no coaster where HSTC was Dick did let us in on a secret and told us the new coaster will feature a cross under as the group building it refused to copy the design of HSTC.


Knoebels was also awarded the first ever American Coaster Enthusiast Ray Ueberroth Preservation Award. Dick Knoebels you could tell was chocked up as Ray and Dick I hear knew each other very well.

Out of room? He has a golf course! :devil:

How does a cross-under differ from a cross-over? I hope we aren't getting a glorified Wacky Worm. I must admit I'm not familiar with Miler's offerings.
