Knoebels Amusement Park has completed another project to recreate a modern day version of the classic Flying Turns "bobsled" wooden roller coaster from the early 1900s. Flying Turns features unique three car trains that are 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 a unique experience.
