After CP's Announcement, What's Up For Knott's?

Tuesday, November 20, 2001 11:55 AM
Now that Cedar Point has made their announcement (which I consider to be nothing ground-breaking), what do you think Knott's is going to build?  Do you think that Cedar Fair might have bought a few of these Impulse coasters in a package, or something different?  Give me your take or, if you are an "insider" your details on the new ride!

I'm praying real hard for something different. Not only was v2 unimpressive, it was hard to fit in and my brother couldn't ride at all. Something like Volcano would be nice :-D

Unless things have changed since late summer the park is getting a full-circuit, sit-down, launched Intamin.  The layout, as explained to me, is sort of like a full-circuit Mr. Freeze.  Of course this all be affected by / hinge on at least two things: 

1] over-all concern of the neighbors and approval from the city council; 2] fallout from the Perilous Plunge litigation.

Hopefully we'll know soon...

saviourmachine, even if they get something like Volcano, it would most likely have the same seating style as V2.  Or at least I assume so since the seating on SUE and Volcano are just about identical from my memory.

Thats a rather general statement.
What about Flashback?

Flashback: the inbred child of Giovanola, Intamin, and I guess you could say B&M...

And an experiment gone horribly wrong.

For some reason Volcano had trains which my brother fit very comfortably in. V2 had a maximum height limit of 6'8". I don't know why the trains are different, but for some reason they are...it's rather upsetting.

The trains on Volcano and the impulses are basically the same, the difference is that the impulses launch right out of the station, so you need to allow clearance for rider's feet (as the floors don't drop).  On Volcano, the train rolls out of the station before the launch, so there's a lot more legroom.

That's MY take on it, anyway...

So what's the difference between V2 and S:UE?  I don't recall any height limit when I rode S:UE this summer, so I'm not quite sure why one would limit and one would not. BTW, I'm 6'9".

Which brings up an interesting point - will there be a height limit on Wicked Twister?

Keep in mind the renovations on the trains... Volcano's are a few years older, and are much boxier. It's a possibility between what GregLeg said, and that these trains may have slight dimension cases, this made you uncomfortable on V2.

Or, you may have just grown larger...

No, your first theory is probably more correct...I rode Volcano after I rode v2. Unless I shrunk ;)
