    (2/21/14) Knoebels briefly stunned many of their fans on Thursday when they posted concept artwork for a new steel looping coaster to their Facebook page. They are calling it IMPULSE for now and it will be a Zierer Tower Coaster, similar in nature to Wicked at Lagoon, but with a regular chain lift to pull you up the vertical lift hill rather than a launch, as Knoebels says they like how the slow climb builds anticipation. Look for Impulse to open for the 2015 season.
    (2/1/14) According to Screamscape sources the 2015 project at Knoebels is said to involve the building of a new main entrance plaza, establishing a new and iconic “sense of arrival” for park guests going forward into the next generation. I’m also hearing there will be a little more involved as well, but I’m still trying to dig up the details so stay tuned!
    (1/30/14) While the 2014 season hasn’t even started yet, Knoebels has begun teasing their fans about what they have in the works for 2015. According to the teaser on their Facebook page, it was an image showing a file folder with the park’s logo and the message, “The 4th Generation is doing what!?!?  TOP SECRET – PROJECT 2015”
    By 4th Generation they are talking about the 4th generation of the Knoebel family. So the question is… is Knoebels ready to go ahead with another large ride project in 2015, or will they try something entirely different and new?  A waterpark? A resort hotel? Purchasing a second park maybe? Or perhaps something really unique and new. Anyone know more?
