unless you're a cool guy like me who stays until close to get as many laps on the Flyers in a row as possible (at $2 a pop, that certainly adds up after the umpteenth ride).

 

Fixed that for you.

 

Everyone knows the flyers are the best ride there

Finally made my way over there for the first time in awhile...

 

1. Impulse is really good. Drop was awesome and the ride packs a lot into a small footprint. Perfect compliment to the park.

 

2. Had one of the best rides on Twister that I've ever had. Rides just like it did when it opened.

 

3. I think I might have to stop riding roller coasters. I got through one ride each on Phoenix and Twister without a problem, but once we got to Impulse I got a really uncomfortable pressure headache right after we got out of the loop; had this happen to me at Hershey four years ago as well. I've had issues with motion sickness before and I was wearing sea bands all day, but I still felt like garbage. Not sure what else to try. I went from being able to ride Twister 47 times in a day to this.

It may be a good idea to see your doctor - could be hypertension. (I'm pretty sure that if your BP is under control with drugs, the warning signs about high BP don't apply to you..)

I've mentioned it to doctors and they never seem to think it's a big deal. I was at an appointment last month and IIRC my blood pressure was like 110/70, so I'm not sure if it's that. It sucks regardless as roller coasters have been a huge part of my life ever since I was like 10.

Guess not. I had similar symptoms that went away when I started BP meds. But if it's a big deal to you, it should be a big deal to your doctors...

Got caught by Impulse's lapbar again on my last visit. Nearly the most painful coaster ride I've ever had, second only to Skyrush opening year. Dug hard into my hip bones, seriously seriously painful. Am I the only one that has a problem with these restraints??

The lap trays are okay for me, it's just the seats are too hard and stiff. If I put my head back against the backrest during the ride it's like I'm being shaken into oblivion.

I know it seems insane, but the Impulse trains have some of the most comfortable restraints on any coaster for me. It obviously has to be tight and have the ankle restraints, but it seems like they went with the best they could get.

I do find the restraints a little bit awkward but nothing too bad.

They LOOK very comfortable, and I think they would be if they just didn't get so ungodly tight. I guess I have exactly the wrong body shape for it (my hip bones are pointy and kind of stick out).

I was actually praising the restraints of Impulse, thought they were very comfortable. I thought to myself how great it would be if Mystery Mine had some of those. I've not ridden DDD, so i don't have the Gerstlauer version to compare with.

Heading to Knoebels in a few weeks.

 

Other than the $5 discount with Pepsi cans or Wegmans, are there any other ones out there?

 

Thanks~!

 

Are you going during the week? If so then they offer all day wristbands.

 

Yes I am going on a Friday. Just seeing if there were any other discounts besides the $5 off ones.

I didn't see anything on club TPR.

 

Thanks again!

Hi Knoebels people! I'm headed to the park in a couple weeks and I'm really looking forward to it. Last time I went in 2014, Flying Turns had just opened and had huge lines. Does it still have large queue times? Should I ride it first? Or is there another more popular ride? Thanks in advance!

Flying Turns still gets a long line. You should definitely ride it first. Impulse can also get a long line.

 

Yes what he said. Flying Turns is a pain loading and unloading so try and hit that up early in the day. Impulse pulls line cause its still the new attraction.

Does anyone know the parks post feelings of flying turns? Do we think we will see more pop up?

 

It took them forever to complete, but the ride is a smash hit with kids and families. If a park is willing to put in the time it's worth it. I don't think you would see one of these pop up at any major parks. Perhaps smaller parks though.
