    Those trains are horrible! I love the original trains that the original Flying Turns had. Yes I'm talking about the Rivewrview Flying Turns. The one that was originally built for The Century Of Progress. On the video "Riverview Gone But Not Forgotten" You get a P.O.V. on the Flying Turns in the original cars. I'd rather have the Art Deco look of those cars.

    This isn't built after the Turns at Riverview. It's a recreation from Euclid.

    Went to Knoebels in late August...it looks like they are close to running...the flood last year put a "damper" on the project. It looks pretty neat. A bit small..but fun. Hey, if anyone goes there...you gotta go on the flat that they have next to Flying Turns, The Looper.

    A lift at the end back into the station? I was concerned about braking.

    The brakes work fine when the train gets onto them. The latest report is that a 5-car train has been tested and they're going to need longer guides than they thought to get it to go smoothly from the trough to the straight track.

    Sorry for the epic bump.

    Someone posted a link to a POV on CoasterForce that they said they got from the EEC newsletter.

    That thing really gets to rocking side to side. It is short but the lift hills and beginning helix will make it seem a lot longer I'm sure.
    I like the Zingo a lot.

    Despite all the setbacks we cross our fingers this thing comes through soon.

    Are you sure? Cause Dick Knoebel told me it was based on the original prints from Century of Progress. I think you're wrong, sorry.

    Just did my homework, Flying Turns and Euclids are based on the original Flying Turns at the Century of Progress. (Which was re-located to Riverview.) Infact Parts of the T-structure was salvaged from Riverview by Ralph Lopez and used as the basis of Knoebles Tubes.

    This flying turns ride is very short. I was expecting more. And please tell me that there is some difference between this and Disaster Transport at Cedar Point - other than DT is enclosed and not made of wood.
