Flying Turns about ready to fly?

Go ahead and laugh. I'm going to be there the day it opens. And I'm going to be the first to ride it. Even if I have to spend the night in a back-room bar with the devil, I am going to ride this shooting star until the break of dawn! And when I get on that first train, the wry smile of the bobsledding grande dame Heidi Peterson will be with me. The ghost of John Allen will be with me! Aye, even the spirit of Galileo will be with me! Sneer all you want, and call me a wild-eyed optimist, but this one-of-a-kind coaster will not be daunted by the cynics and critics! Sled with me Heidi Peterson! Climb aboard, John Allen! Onward, Galileo! Our eyes will fill with water, and our hands will clutch the grab bar, and as God as my witness, this coaster and I will never let go of our destiny.

I doubt Gonch will be anywhere near Knoebels, but you can try. ;-)

Well, even if he did spend the night in a back-room bar with Gonch, he wouldn't live to tell about it. Not with Gonch being all stabby and stuff.

No fair taking my devil jokes before I have the chance to make them.
