  1. Grew up 30 mins from Knoebels, by far still my favorite park.
  2. Would be nice to see them put those on the invertigo that dorney is getting.
  3. Nice TR. Just curious, are sidewinders trains brand new or are they the old ones with modifications?
  4. Great TR, looks like you had a great trip. Nice to see some different pics of cp.
  5. Great Bear is awesome, it feels like you're actually flying through comet hollow.
  6. Great TR. It looks like BD is going to have a rotating tunnel similar to Golden Nugget.
  7. Knoebels. Just for the simple reason that it's so unique. Hershey is unique as well, but a bit more corporate then Knoebels. You'll never visit another park like Knoebels.
  8. When we would go to Knoebels as kids, I can remember the operator of the old Eli wheel sitting extremely close to the edge of the wheel while it was in motion. We would all sit there in awe wondering why this guy never got his head caught, but he never did, your post reminded me of that. Anyway, great tr.
  9. They're making some progress on the BD. They have some track going around the front now and have a car sitting in the front. The pics are from my cell phone, so the quality isn't the best.
  10. How many local GP people are you referring to? I'm local, the people I know that go to Knoebels don't even go for thrills, they go for the atmosphere, the prices, the fact that it's local, and company picnics. The past few years Knoebels has had their best years despite the crappy economy. Was it last year or the year before their opening day was by far the most crowded they ever had? Do you really think that people, who aren't enthusiasts, are gonna stop going to Knoebels if FT doesn't open?
  11. Blasted by who? People on a roller coaster board? The ride could totally suck, or even never open, people will still go to Knoebels in droves and it will still be the greatest park around, and I don't think they're gonna lose much sleep over what a few people have to say about their new ride not opening on time.
  12. Was that today? If so how were the lines?
  13. online.wsj.com/article/BT-CO-20100309-715968.html?mod=WSJ_World_MIDDLEHeadlinesAmericas Although there is lots of speculation in that article, it was in the WSJ.
  14. I didn't mean to say anything "untruthful", I just thought that if they're taking down a 25 year old ride, it's to save money, even if it's in the long run. I don't think they would tear down an old ride, and build a new one if it was going to make less money then the original ride. Getting back to what I was saying before, Blackstone is known for cutting costs. A friend of mine was working for a company for five years, then about a year ago when BS took them over the culture at the company totally changed.
  15. Blackstone is very much about cutting costs and the bottom line, they just took over a chunk of hilton and sent quite a few call center jobs overseas. When I saw they were buying BG it made more sense that BBW is coming down.
  16. That's great, things really have changed over the years.
  17. I hated Stats. I took an online stats course last semester, I don't know if it was the book or the way the course was set up but it was absolutely terrible.
  18. Great TR! Is the comet a rebuilt version of the old cyclone or are they two completely separate rides?
  19. Great video J! That thing looks like a blast! Can't wait till bargain night.
  20. I've noticed that Knoebels is very "big person" friendly. There are really no rides there that someone of a large size couldn't fit on. Recently they changed the belts on fandango so larger people can fit.
