If Knoebels got a well-loved Top Scan and ran it the way it's supposed to be run, the enthusiast community would lose their minds. And their lunches.

I agree with this. Top Scans are nice.

There are few flats I'd take over Downdraft, but a well-run top scan is one. That was the best ride at Oktoberfest in my opinion (yes I liked it over Olympia Looping).

A Top Scan right next to Power Surge might be a little much for a lot of parkgoers. Wouldn't catch me complaining one bit though!

^I mean if were being honest it's not like Downdraft was a "mild" ride.

^Yeah but to a lot of "general" park people going upside down and/or over the shoulder restraints is a deal breaker.

Evidently the park removed Over the Top from the ride list on the website a few weeks ago.

Interestingly enough, they did not remove Downdraft.

Considering how often Over the Top ran at Knoebels, that doesn't shock me.

I remember them being so excited for Over The Top when they rode that example at the IAAPA Expo... That's too bad that it didn't work out.
