Thanks! I don't know anyone who hasn't walked away from Knoebels thinking it's a gem.

Thanks! It definitely doesn't have the number of coasters of the US's other major thrill parks, but it's absolutely one of the best parks and unlike anything else you'll find over here.

in particular, is i typed about how tight the restraints were on 1001 Nachts (and even mentioned how rare it was that it was operating, so that's why we hopped on it).

LOL

great report, and just know ahead of time, i'm not copying you :)


Thanks! Good thing I got it out today so I don't get accused of plagiarizing. :lol: I look forward to reading your report when it comes out.

As far as the motorboats, they are really hard to control, but there's a trick to them. You have to sort of look under the "dashboard" and realize how the steering is constructed to "get" it. There's just a rope, wrapped around the boat in a big almost-complete circle, that connects to both sides of the rudder, and it's just stretched across a pulley on the steering shaft. Nothing is actually connected together. Turning the wheel just sort of slides the rope a bit, but it's slippery and very often a little too loose, so it kind of slips back towards the center on its own very quickly. It's a weird, very cobbled-together setup, and not intuitive to steer, but once you figure that out, and that you have to kind of keep turning it, at different speeds for different rudder angles, it's mostly controllable. Not great, but you can stay off the walls, anyway.


Thanks! We sort of realized constantly turning the wheel and perpetually correcting our course was the only option for us. We weren't sure if it was just us or our boat, so I'm glad others have struggled just as much.

Thanks! That's exactly how our ride went! :lol: I'd really love to see how someone really familiar with boating would do.

Just making sure she's not actually a ride at Knoebels as we know that's possible!

Wow - it looks like Knoebels is The TPR Park of the Year, to me, with so many TRs including it, or of it recently!

It's still on my Bucket List. From long ago. Before social media, I knew it was a park to get to, in the future.

Thanks for your TR on it. EDIT: The perogies! How could I forget The Perogies???? <drool>

Haha I don't blame you for being skeptical, especially with some of the creepy enthusiasts out there. :lol:

I'm impressed I was able to get a night photo with both our faces and text visible.

Thanks! As I wrote this, I realized there had been a ton of Knoebels TRs lately but you can never have too many of those.
