Despite serious flood damage, Knoebels Amusement Park hopes to have most of its facilities open this weekend.

“It was really bad,” spokesman Joseph Muscato said about the flood. “It was worse than 1972. Parts of the park had never had water before. Buildings were moved.”

^LOL, it was so close to being alphabetical, I didn't bother looking THAT closely.

I'm sure by PPP time, only a couple of the kids rides might/will be affected (although I'm always psyched for the Spiral Slide, so I've got my phingers crossed).

Haunted Mansion and Skooters are now on the list (almost missed Skooters, have them simply listed as Bumper Cars).

Seeing Ol' Smokey added to that list brought a smile to my face.

Agreed. The picture of Ol' Smokey after the flood was one of the sadder ones. Riding that is one of many "+1" experiences at Knoebels.

Though I do have to laugh at the "seat belts" on Ol'Smokey. Two years ago when I rode it last it was nothing more than a thick piece of string. Like that is going to do anything.

I'm not sure Bumper Cars doesn't refer to the kiddie bumper cars. I keep waiting to see Skooters on the list but it wouldn't surprise me if they didn't open tomorrow.

Looks like they're running, with a shiny new "Flood Level 2011" sign added.
