  1. Here are some pics from me and Jim's trip. The Marching Dick Knoebel's Backseat Bill Stinker Bell Clowns were everywhere Clowns Clowns golden nugget car pics golden nugget car pics golden nugget car pics
  2. They loaded them that much faster. They have 2 people check restraints , one starts at the front, the other in the back and they go all the way through the train, so yes, everyone gets checked twice. Its stupid. For that ride there isnt a reason to check everyone twice.
  3. The steel pier mouse was worth a ride, i will miss that coaster. That was my first spinning mouse ride.
  4. The main bridge to twister is the next bridge down, which isnt a covered bridge. The covered bridge is the main entry way to the campgrounds. Also if you ever get to make it to knoebels again, you can use your tickets that you have left, there good anytime. The Loaf of bread building used to be a bakery years ago, but i do not recall what all they made in it.
  5. The ride you couldnt remember the name of is the power surge. Also the carousel was built in 1912. Knoebels has had it since 1941. Nice report.
  6. knoebels : Rode the jetstar the year it came to the park. Rode the swinging car ferris wheel (now gone) when it was near the high speed thrill coaster. Rode the small train from kiddieland when it went through the whole park. Rode the real horses when they still had pony rides. Remembers the rollerskating rink. Rode the panther cars when they were in there original spot ( now in there 3rd spot do to flooding over the years ). williamsgrove : Rode the cyclone when i was a small kid. Remembers when they used to have pretty big musicians perform there (my mom would go see them alot). hersheypark: Remembers when it only had 3 coasters (comet, sooperdooperlooper, and trailblazer). Haven't been there, but > busch gardens: Remembers seeing the advertisements on tv for the new loch ness monster rollercoaster and thinking wow that looks scary . Remembers when the big bad wolf was in the news because it was too rough and injuring people. Remembers when it was still called the old country.
  7. The Jet Star at knoebels The Whirlwind at knoebels The Cyclone at williamsgrove (In the 70's when i was alot younger )
  8. Trailblazer was closed on tuesday the 12th when i was there for my company picnic. So they must be having major issues.
  9. I will do my top 6, all the other parks i have been to are really small. 1. Cedar Point 2. Hersheypark 3. Six Flags Great Adventure 4. Dorney Park 5. Knoebels 6. Kennywood
  10. Now if we could just get Knoebels to do this. It would be a little harder to do since you dont pay for admission or parking, but it would be kinda neat to have a pass for the season. I wish i lived closer to pittsburgh than i do so i could visit more often. Maybe if they ever finish 99.
  11. A cheesesteak sandwich is thin steak chopped up into strips and fried , put into a hoagie submarine roll, with melted cheese on it. Different variations of it include fried onions, peppers, some put mayo on it, some nothing, some a red tomato sauce. But basically its chopped steak and cheese on a roll. Nice trip report.
  12. I knew that saudi women where allowed to wear what they wanted in there house as long as it was out of public eye, and if it was an all women get together , but i didnt know they where allowed to wear bikini's at a water park. I saw a show recently that a saudi women was swimming/scuba diving and she still had on alot of clothing. Interesting.
  13. Coastin Steve was wearing the goggles mostly because he is a goof ball, and is just a fun loving guy. He likes coasters and to have fun. He usually always shows up at PPP at knoebels. And yes he did work on The Flying Turns. Give the guy a break.
  14. Not sure if anyone has asked or not , i think i looked at this whole thread, but do you have anything to post in the future of knoebels and williamsgrove in pennsylvania ? I do have these couple things , the pamphlet i believe is from the 80's, it still has the jetstar on the front. Then i have the 2 post cards that where from the 80's, the one of the phoenix was when it was first built, you can still see part of the parking lot in front, i remember as a kid that was the main lot before they started using the field that they use now.
