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.


if still there, play at least a few rounds of Fascination.

but be warned, it's addictive :)

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

Will do next time. We already left so we can make preview at Hersheypark. My daughter said Phoenix was second only to Wicked Cyclone so far this trip. I will post a full TR with pics when I get back.

I still haven't been to Knoebels yet this season and, to be honest, I'm kind of wondering why not. :lol:

Dad's faves: Fury 325. Phantom's Revenge. Intimidator 305. El Toro. Skyrush.

Kiddo's faves: Wicked Cyclone. Twisted Timbers. Lightning Rod. The Wild One. Possessed.

I am planning to be at Knoebels this coming Friday the 22nd for the entire day. Would you recommend that I get a ride all day plan? If so, is the $49.00 the cheapest way to do this? I appreciate the advice in advance.

I purchased 3 $20 ticket booklets for $48 at a Weis market for my daughter and I. It was enough for the both of us, YMMV. If you are riding everything, go for the wristband. I would probably go for the wristband next time and marathon Phoenix and Impulse.

Best part of Knoebels is that the big three wooden coasters all have 42" inch heights.

I love that the Phoenix was my kid's first 'real' coaster.
