Sadly, Whirlwind is so boring that I didn't even care to reride by going again without leaving my seat. It's really underwhelming compared to the woodies and HSTC for that matter. Even the slide is infinitely more fun and amusing.
Please say rumors of a Volare are far from true. I know that the flying coaster is the newest craze, but I don't see how that would fit in at Knoebels (correct spelling btw). I was really hoping that they would go with something more suited for the park, like a Shwarzkopf shuttle loop or the Invertigo from Lisberg. I know...everyone seems to hate Vekoma shuttle coasters, but the Invertigo would be perfect for the site of Wirlwind, and the coaster showed us that low capacity isn't an issue with Knoebels (very efficient) staff. In addition Dick did say something to the effect of rescuing another coaster...so I wouldnt look to getting anything BRAND new since that is the style for Knoebels.
OH...thilly me...I just saw Zamperla, coaster, and my brain went into auto PLEASE NO! mode. Whatever it is going to be I trust that Dick and the crew at Knoebels will make sure that is just right for the park.
Wow, and only $550,000l. Personally I'd love to see it replaced by a wild mouse, possibly a spinning mouse. They're a lot of fun and would fit the Knoebels style nicely, except for the fact that they probably wouldn't get it used.
Other than that...well, I don't see how they could squeeze SFGAm's shockwave in that space..;)
