Coaster enthusiasts in central Pennsylvania will soon have a new ride to make their adrenaline pump. On Thursday, February 20th, 2014, Knoebels Amusement Resort announced via Facebook and Twitter that it will build an ambitious new steel roller coaster, slated to open in 2015. For several weeks now, those following Knoebels’ social media pages have received tantalizing hints about a possible new feature in the park. Thursday’s announcement was a simple affair. A post on the park’s Facebook page read, “Oooo, look what I found” followed by a link to computer generated pictures of the proposed ride. A similar tweet appeared on Twitter at the same time. Almost immediately, fans began asking questions in the comments sections of the posts. Through answers by Knoebels representatives, it was revealed that the coaster will be called the Impulse. It will be built near the entrance of the park, requiring two existing rides, the bumper boats and boat tag, to be removed. According to a Knoebels representative on Twitter, It will utilize a vertical chain lift to raise riders 98 feet in the air. Reaction to the new coaster appeared overwhelmingly positive, with only a few posters worrying the modern ride would detract from the family friendliness of the classic park.This will be the first steel coaster erected at Knoebels since the park dismantled the aging Whirlwind coaster in 2004 to make way for the construction of a bobsled style wooden coaster called The Flying Turns.
