Flying Turns is a wooden bobsled roller coaster located at Knoebels Amusement Park in Elysburg, Pennsylvania, USA. It is modeled after a similar ride designed by John Norman Bartlett and John Miller in the 1920s. The ride was scheduled to open in 2007, but has suffered numerous delays. It finally began operation in the evening of October 4, 2013. Flying Turns has many viewing areas as you can see the train flying by the track. Flying turns also has two lift hills. The first is smaller and at the start of the ride, the second is larger and is the main lift hill.
History[edit | edit source]
Construction on Flying Turns began in January 2006. At the time, the budget for the roller coaster was $3 million.
