 Review of Flyer @ Knoebels
2 Rating Posted by: BobFunland on 6/3/2005 1:23:00 AM
Finally, another awesome flying scooter model. It had been a while since I had the joy of experiencing a good set, so I was ready to fly high. I first rode with a partner, and there was no snapping for me. Oh, I was sad a bit and let down too. Eventually, I was able to ride with some fellow TPCers. This time, I was flying solo, but still couldnt get it. Finally, a bit of a lesson and I was off at it again. About halfway through the ride, I had finally gotten it. I then enjoyed another ride and had even more snapping fun. However, I probably should have ridden again, but it was a short day. The ride was good, but suprisingly different than the snappable set at Carowinds. For these, you needed a whole different pattern and didnt even have to throw your weight around, so less work for me. While I did indeed snap them at Carowinds, I have to wonder if it was just by luck now. I guess it will wait until I visit again.This ride is still awesome though, even if Im only giving a 9. I probably could have used another ride or two to get some more under my belt and bump it up to a 10, but I will stick with a strong 9 and call it a great flat ride, among my favorites. The cycle is incredible: they run it at least 5 mins, which is twice as good as other sets I have ridden. The unloading is quick too, they seem to come to a rest better than the ones at Carowinds, but perhaps that was just due to it being their first day of operation when I went. Oh yea, that motor thingy was, well, um... rustic. Ill give it a 9 for now and it barely misses being a 10.

d3th- basically you just buy a bunch of tickets, get in line and once youre on the thing jiggle the rudder around until you learn the ancient zen mystery technique of pure unbridled snappitude. once you attain your snapping breakthrough, you must then confront your sense of mortality and fear of death. a nice long run on the flyer with plenty o snaps should heighten your sense of imminent death like only a decent bungee jump off of bridge should be able to do.

Oh! Thank you! I just noticed that people replied to this and I hunted down the thread and printed out adriahnas post... Ill study it on my way to Knoebels (an hour and a half)

"sounds like the Flyers installed at Carowinds are snappable although themed to Kim Possible (I beleive) in the Nickelodeon section."

Kim Possible is a Disney show... Sorry, but as a fan of KP since the show started I had to point it out.
