ACEers Bid in Impulse First-Rider Auction

Knoebels Amusement Resort, Elysburg, Pennsylvania, opened their new-for-2015 Impulse on Saturday, April 25, 2015. Impulse is the latest "Euro Fighter" style coaster from Zierer. To christen the new roller coaster, an on-site auction for first-riders was held before the coaster opened for the day, raising more than $7,000 to benefit the Give Kids The World charity, $700 of which came from ACEers!

The 98-foot tall Impulse begins with a vertical lift and travels over 1,975 feet, reaching speeds of up to 55 miles-per-hour. Individual cars hold 8 passengers each, and though there are 4 inversions during the course of the ride, the cars possess only comfy, lap bar type restraints.
