They've been teasing it for weeks on Facebook and just posted this:

Wow. Hey, maybe Dorney will get a slightly used Gravitron from the Allentown Fair to compete with this.

It looks like a great coaster. Since they said its from Zierer, hopefully the renderings are wrong and it uses lap bars like Wicked and not OTSR's. It is a lot of fun to ride a coaster with inversions with just a lap bar.

Knoebel's new coaster, Impulse, will be lap bars only. The renderings the park has released are from a program called No Limits 2. Unfortunately, the program does not have any of Zierer's styles yet, so they used Gerstlauer's Euro-Fighter style since it is similar. For in case you have not seen it yet, News Plus Notes has a nice article with a screen shot that shows what the restraints will look like. http://newsplusnotes.blogspot.com/2014/07/knoebels-impulse-new-video-teaser.html
