More details on Knoebels Impulse

knoebels2015Yesterday, I promised more details as we got them on the new “Impulse” at Knoebels.

So here they are, straight from the source:

You’ve seen the pictures, here’s a little more info.The design incorporates approximately 1985 feet of track and an approximately 98 foot tall lift hill. 3 eight rider vehicles will achieve speeds of up to 56 mph. 90 degree free fall drop, cobra roll, loop, immelman, helix, airtime hills are all incorporated in the ride. Riders are seated in two rows of 4 facing forward with the back row seats elevated above the front row seats. Manufacturer Zierer. Bumper boats and boat tag will be removed to make space for the ride named Knoebels Impulse.

The ride will also be traditional chain lift, not launch as many people thought.

I went to Zierer’s website, and there doesn’t seem to be a direct product that matches this description, so it looks like it will be custom, which is awesome. Construction is expected to start this summer, with a finishing date of 2015.

Of course, I’ll be keeping you posted!
