I'm curious how I will like it, since it takes a lot more than airtime for me to enjoy a coaster. I'm quite the fan of positive G's.

Twister is good too, but Phoenix is just phenomenal.

you'll love it.

(and you'll likely love JackRabbit at Kennywood too tho that one is all about that one double-down)

Make sure to get at least one ride in Row 3. In my 15+ rides I got on Phoenix two summers ago that seemed to be the magic seat.

^ Can confirm. Rows 1, 3, and 12 are the best.

Also because I've never been to Knoebels and people frequently sing its praises which makes me want to go real bad. A little concerned I may not be good for a majority of all the other rides there (like Impulse) but the airtime buffet may be worth it alone :airtime: :airtime: :airtime:.


If I was only 4 hours from Knoebels, I'd be there every other week. I could sit there riding Phoenix and the flyers for the entire day and it would be one of the all time great days at an amusement park.
Top 10 - 1.) Steel Vengeance 2.) Intimidator 305 3.) Maverick. 4.) Lightning Rod 5.) Fury325 6.) Phoenix 7.) Twisted Colossus 8.) Taron 9.) Millennium Force 10.) Expedition GeForce

^Guess I will start figuring out what day to go then. :lmao:

Does anybody know how accomodating Impulse is? I can't find anything online for that or Wicked (has similar restraints) which honestly is probably a good thing.
In my opinion El Toro and Intimidator 305 ride fairly and are free of material roughness.

Following the tradition of the park sticking to their guns and getting a ride open, eventually, by any means necessary, Over The Top has opened.

OMG, awesome! I honestly expected it never would, that they'd just get rid of it and buy something else. Leave it to Knoebels to get it running against all odds.

I will never doubt the wisdom of TPR. My daughter and I have been here all day. I'm glad we decided to give it a full day's attention.

Phoenix x 4 so far. Row 1 was amazing. Smooth and tons of airtime? Sign me up. Ops are great and waits have been at most two cycles. We walked on Impulse and Twister. We waited maybe 20 minutes for Flying Turns. We are purchasing our first merch of the trip and may even spring for pictures. What an amazing park.

We'll be back.
