In the middle of Knoebels is the Whirlwind a coaster by Vekoma with two corkscrew loops separated by a curve.  While this ride is not a favorite of enthusiasts some people seem to like it.

Here's one of the loops.  Knoebels took out a Schwarzkopf Jet Star to put this in.  Personally I would have bought a Schwarzkopf portable looping coaster instead of a rough Vekoma one.

If there's a disappointing thing about Knoebels this ride is it and the only it.  This park is one of the best parks in the planet.
