Two new rides coming to Knoebels
ELYSBURG — As if there wasn’t already enough fun, food and fantasy at Knoebels Amusement Resort, they are adding more! According to park officials, there will be two new rides at Knoebels when the park opens in April.
The StratosFear will be a big addition. Litterally. The drop tower ride will measure 148 feet tall, which is even higher than the Giant Wheel and the Twister. According to The Daily Item, the StratosFear will reach speeds of up to 47 mph.
Knoebels is also excited to introduce a new family ride in 2013. The Crazy Submarine will provide a thrill for the kids, while appealing to the parents with a likeness to The Beatles Yellow Submarine cartoon.
The addition of these two new thrills brings the park’s total to 57 rides. The park will not need to take down any old rides to make room for the new ones. (Codi Jade)
