Knoebels Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

My personal pick is the Danville Red Roof Inn. It's about ten minutes away and usually has a good price. My only complaint is that their Wi-fi tends to be troublesome at times.

I have always stayed at the Red Roof as well, never had a problem there at all.

So does anyone know what Knoebels rain policy is? It looks like it might rain for PPP but if they don't care (and I assume they don't because they're cool like that), then we don't either.

 

we were there during a DOWNPOUR in June.

 

seriously, it poured so much the park flooded for a good 40 minutes, then all drained and almost everything opened back up.

 

 

the only ride that was affected was Flying Turns. . it went down after the first downpour, and they never got it back up, because every time it would dry off enough to start testing again, another wave of showers came thru.

Screamscape is showing a picture of what is assumed to be Impulse track traveling on I-64 west of Richmond. Anyone know where Zierer track is manufactured? If it is imported, would the port of entry be Norfolk? If that location is correct, it seems to be taking an odd route to Elysburg.

The source didn't explicitly say which direction the track was going, did they? I-64, at least Eastbound, is the way to Busch Gardens Williamsburg, even if they spotted the track west of Richmond. I-64 goes straight through Richmond.

 

I'm fairly certain that the track in the source's photo is for Busch Gardens Williamsburg's new coaster. Zierer used this kind of track on Wicked, their other tower coaster...

I thought the color seemed wrong, and the location seemed wrong, but I completely forgot about BGW's new ride. That is obviously what we are looking at. Anyone know where Premier track is manufactured?
Intermountain Lift in Clearfield, Utah.

The foundation's being poured, and coaster parts are currently on a ship somewhere on the Atlantic Ocean.

I'm not too fond of the X amount of cubic yards of concrete - hopefully they'll be able to do something to cover most of it up.

That looks so....not Knoebel's.

 

We're getting a legit steel coaster though so I'll take it.

^ Honestly I don't think Knoebels is missing anything. They just love to put awesome icing on the already awesome cake. They've been my favorite park in the country for years but they keep getting better.

 

"Hey look... we're already amazing and have the best collection of flat rides anywhere but just for fun here's one of the best drop towers in the country".

 

"We already have the best classic style dark ride in the world... here's another one with some coaster drops in it".

 

"We already have Phoenix and Twister... how about the world's only flying turns ride that enthusiasts have been begging for for 40+ years".

 

"We just opened a new coaster and an awesome drop tower in the last few years so we really don't need anything but here's a steel looping coaster with a vertical drop that of course has lap bars to make it extra awesome".

 

... and on top of that when they add new rides they very rarely remove anything of value. The same can't be said for a lot of other parks.
