Flying Turns


Knoebels Amusement Park

Knoebels Amusement Park has started another project to recreate a modern day version of the classic Flying Turns "bobsled" wooden roller coaster from the early 1900s. Flying Turns will feature unique five car trains that not attached to a track. Instead, the train rolls down a U-shape wood trough that resembles a bobsled course. Since the train is not restricted by a track, each ride on the Flying Turns should be unique.

Flying Turns roller coaster remains under construction and will open as soon as it's completed.
