2008 - Flying Turns - (2/26/08) Screamscape sources tell us that Knoebels may have had another setback with the Flying Turns coaster. Seems more problems with the trains have come up and we shouldn’t expect to see it open until maybe the end of the summer.

That sucks....we had a trip there in June...i really wanted to go!

At this rate, I wouldn't be surprised to see it pushed back to 2009

It's easy to tell how hard it is building such a complicated ride, especially a style that's been obsolete for decades! So far this has been a lot of headaches for Knoebels and I really hope they get it done with soon!

I don't understand how there are so many delays. While I'm sure things had to be improved from the 1920s, the patients should still be around. With the basic plans already mastered, I don't understand how upgrades and modifications cause such severe set backs.

That's from 2007, and it's just a part of the ride.

I just went to Knoebels last week (you can find my TR in the worldwide coasters TR sub-forum), and there was no testing going on, and it appears as though we will have to wait another year before an official opening.

3 years and counting...
