Knoebels is absolutely one of my favorite places to visit. And it would take a lot for me to be steered away from returning (ie- ripping down Phoenix, and Twister, replacing the bumper cars with stand

It's definitely not for this season.  There are pictures of it on Reddit and it's in extremely rough condition.  I don't see any way it's operating this year.  Hopefully that means Knoebels is plannin

Remember the lady who married 1001 Nachts? Well now there's Lady falls in love with a ride....The Movie!

You know, I said that if Knoebels was to put a big ride in it would be their best interest to remove the bumper boats and boat tag. Looks like I nailed that prediction. Still, I was surprised that they are going for a steel coaster but I'm excited to hear that they're going for it. This will look great at the main road into the park!

I realize they'll never get the crowds they get but I think this coaster will help get their name out more since no GP in New Jersey have really heard of Knoebels.

 

I hope the Knoebels family game plan is not to acquire more visitors from New Jersey.

^^It's funny because even NJ residents hate NJ. In 2009 some friends and I went to NY and visited SFGAdv. We talked to some locals at a restaurant by the park and they're like "Why the hell would you want to come to NJ?!? AKA NY's trash can!"

Does it bother anyone else that the pictures aren't in No Limits 2? Looks like a great coaster but it wouldn't have taken long just to import it over for a nicer looking rendering.

I think you probably underestimate the amount of work that is probably piled on everyone to get this to where it is, and I'm assuming the design work started LONG before NL2 even came out. You're assuming that someone just output that image yesterday when it's very probably those images were created weeks if not months ago.

 

I'm sure the goal of the park was to get something out to the public to give an idea of what the ride will look like, not which video game the ride was created in.

I completely understand, it was just a minor point I wanted to bring up. I'd just like them to put out some higher res images in the new engine at some point along with maybe a POV. Can't wait for construction to start!

Honestly they should be going after that market especially Northern Jersey. We're the next state over and they're really the only true family park around so if they got word out to more Jersey residents, they could have a nice increase in attendance with this ride.

I live in NJ so I can tell you first hand that NY is much worse to live in. I always see Staten Island residents crossing the bridge to our malls, grocery stores and gas stations. Plus NY is much more crowded and the cost of living is a lot higher.

 

I personally find NJ very convenient to live in because we're near everything but I admit, the winter weather and the people are definitely negatives. My family has been daydreaming about living in Florida or San Diego all winter .

When people were talking about it being launched I thought zierer made sense because of Wicked, but now it's confirmed chain-lift i'm curious why they didn't just go with a eurofighter and have the beyond vertical drop.

As was said I really hope this has lap bar restraints.

It does... which we should have figured because Knoebels does everything right.

 

 

 

 

By the way I love whoever is in charge of their Facebook page.

I'll take your word for it.

Well, that was a great lesson in how not to announce a major addition. But anyway, big looping coaster near the front of the park with no OTSR, I approve! I'm still hoping for a launch, though obviously it doesn't seem likely at this point. Mini Fahrenheit will give me more excuse not to wait in the sweltering sun for the actual Fahrenheit. I'm hoping, due to the smaller size, the inversions will have a bit more "kick" to them than Fahrenheit's as well. Everything at Knoebel's has a bit more "kick" to it.
