Two things. First, since it is said they are trying to sell Laser, wouldn't that be a nice fit for Knoebels? I'd love to see it end up there.

And second, I hate to say it but most people comment on the crowd being low with walk on condition. Can we see another GL here? Dorney Parks Wild Water kingdom?

I heard Dorney get's around 1.5 million a year so I don't think they are going to lose the ride sides. Plus the lines can get long some days. I'll post a TR later but at 10:45 a.m. yesterday, Talon's line was 45 minutes!

I said somewhere else someone should email Dick Knoebel, lol. I agree.

ApolloAndy's avatar Yeah, but they just took out a compact looper to put in Flying turns. I don't think too many people will flock to Laser, Anton or not...

But Laser >>>>> Hurlwind.

Didn't I read or hear somewhere (here?) that the Knoebels folks said that steel isn't their thing? If it's true, I don't know if that only pertains to new construction or the whole deal of constructing and maintaining a steel coaster. They already have a carpentry crew-- maybe they'd rather use them instead of bringing in steel erectors.

$1.2 million is a steal for a coaster like Laser. Of course, that price will at least double or triple until you add in the teardown, transport, and re-build. But still...

BTW, I nominate P18 to e-mail Dick Knoebel. :)
