Knoebels is adding a Wisdom Tornado next season!

According to Knoebels’ Spokesperson Stacy Ososkie, Knoebels Amusement Resort is celebrating the new year with the announcement of a new ride for their 2020 season.

The park announced a new ride named “Tornado.” The 32-passenger ride is expected to be ready for the park’s April 25 opening day.


And, in addition...

While there will be an addition to the ride lineup, 2020 will also see the removal of a ride that has been at the park for more than 20 years. Debuting at Knoebels in 1998, 1001 Nacht took guests on a magic carpet ride reaching 85 feet in height.

“The ride is nearing the end of its operational life and ridership isn’t strong, meaning it makes sense for us to remove it to help with future planning for the park,” said Ososkie.

That poor woman.

It says the widow is a church organist, do you think she'll play during the funeral service? That would be a lovely tribute.

^ On the contrary, maybe 1001 Nacht is moving in with her.

Kinda bummed they're going with another generic carnival ride, especially since you can find Tornado's all over the place. Happy to see them adding more rides to that dead area of the park, hopefully it will help spread out the crowds more. Love the paint scheme!

It won't be generic. It will be infused with magic, because Knoebels.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the woman and her husband, may they both move onward and upward from these treacherous times.

Glad I got to ride it while it was still around! I wonder if Knoebel's is going to figure out how to run this new ride unnaturally well. Looking forward to next season!

Let's think positive, it just says it's leaving the park. Maybe it's going to move in with her. Or they'll gently let her know her husband's leaving for more open space, perhaps it's off to live on a farm where it'll have all the space it needs to spin around whenever it wants that she sadly can't visit.

On another note, I absolutely love these rides so I'm thrilled that we have one coming to Knoebels.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

I'm not a /huge/ fan of Tornados...they just don't seem to spin nearly as well as a good teacup ride...but it's replacing about the only ride at Knoebels that I won't mind seeing go, so...sure, that's fine. And as has been pointed out already...it's going to be the best Tornado in the world anyway.
