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.
Data entry nut for the official TPR coaster poll! https://coasterpoll.com/ The opinions that I post on this forum do not necessarily represent those of the company I work for.
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!
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.
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.
