First thing was the Fandango, but on the way we stopped by the site now emptied by Whirlwinds removal. I noticed a sign, Kozmo's News Notes," Whirlwind has found a new home, and we are planning on building a vintage looper ride on this site for the current season. Don't wprry there are bigger plans for the future." I wonder what.
Anyway, we waited two cycles for Fandango, longer than I ever waited for Whirlwind, and it was awsome! This ride really kicks, and the cycle is better than on the Chance/KMG rides at Dorney and Hershey. A great new addition, as well as being in a great location out past Phoenix.
We avoided Phoenix for now, seeing that the line was long, and there were preparing to add a second train. We opted to ride the flume, and I have always though that this is one of the best with the natural surroundings.
Phoenix was now running two trains, so we go on second row. This coaster never gets old. The airtime is as intense as ever, and managed to get two more rides before we left, on back, and one first row. Always has been, and will be my #1 wood!
Twister was running two trains, sort of, since they were only loading one. Even then there was no line. I still feel this is the best twister style woodie out there, and still the tallest wooden coaster in PA. (Post Hercules that is.)
We hit the bumper cars, always a great ride, Italian Trapese, Skloosh, Power Surge, Haunted Mansion (first time through with my eyes open! LOL), Pioneer train,
It wouldn't be so bad if she wanted to ride, then we could trade off, but she's not a huge coaster fan. I love that she supports my crazy hobby though and only 3 more inches and my son will hit that 42 inch mark and then he could ride all the coasters at Knoebels with me. Almost there.
