I'm going with my fiancee up to Penn State for a weekend...and she had made the suggestion that I could do a coaster trip while I'm there, since I'll probably be bored with her and her friends.
I checked the calendar compared to when Knoebels opens, and it turns out that it's opening weekend this year? Seeing as how it's my first visit (I really want to ride the coasters, and I'm not into spinny flat rides), what is it like opening day/opening weekend? Is it packed, or about a normal crowd? Or deserted?
Should I get the unlimited ride pass as well, or just pay per ride (i'm planning on hitting Twister and Phoenix more than once each)?
And...does anyone know if Flying Turns will be open by then? Or no?
Any help would be greatly appreciated...
The RAD pass is going to be buy one get one both days. You can blow thru a $10 book in no time so if you plan on riding the coasters more then once I'd just go for the handstamp.
Crowds all depends on the weather, it can be light or fairly crowded but never as bad as a weekend in July or August. I've seen it both ways many times so you can't really judge it.
There has been no date given for the opening of the Flying Turns so it's hard to say it will be open or not. I'm thinking it won't be ready for opening day but thats just me.

Passes for days that they aren't open into the night tend to be cheaper than the price on the website, but you'll have to check when you go.
I don't know what the crowds are like opening weekend because I haven't been there then. Obviously if the weather is bad crowds will be smaller. I've heard they don't shut down the coasters for rain and in fact they run like crazy with wet tracks, but I personally wouldn't want to run into the rain that hard.
The last rumor I've heard about the Flying Turns is that they're pushing for opening day but it might be more realistic to plan for Memorial Day.
