    Knoebels: Woman Plans to Marry the 1001 Nacht Ride

    Post  Ccron10 on Sat Aug 08, 2009 10:21 pm

    This follows a "courtship" of 3,000 rides over ten years with the 80ft gondola ride called 1001 Nachts.

    Miss Wolfe, 33, from Pennsylvania, will change her surname to Weber after the manufacturer of the ride she travels 160 miles to visit 10 times per year, according to reports

    “I love him as much as women love their husbands and know we’ll be together forever,” she said.

    Miss Wolfe first fell for the ride when she was 13: “I was instantly attracted to him sexually and mentally.

    “I wasn’t freaked out, as it just felt so natural, but I didn’t tell anyone about it because I knew it wasn’t ‘normal’ to have feelings for a fairground ride.”

    Ten years later, she decided to go back to Knoebels Amusement Park to declare her love. She now sleeps with a picture of the ride on her ceiling and carries its spare nuts and bolts around to feel closer to it.

    She claims to believe they share a fulfilling physical and spiritual relationship and does not get jealous when other people ride it.

    Although she faces discrimination from employers, most of her family and friends have been supportive. “I’m not hurting anyone and I can’t help it," she said. "It’s a part of who I am.”

    I find this absolutely hilarious. I don't get the fasination with that ride. Why not the Phoenix or the Twister?

    Well, give her some credit. It could be a lot more bizarre than it is.

    That is crazy! I agree with going towards Phoenix or Twister. More thrilling and well known.

    That's really strange. I've heard of people marrying different things (not going to elaborate Very Happy ) but this is weird. I remember 1001 Nachts as the flying carpet type ride. Didn't look like it would make a good husband!

    What if she goes to another park that has the same ride? Or even any park with a flying carpet ride?

    Someday when Knoebles removes the ride, what will happen? Will she buy it so that their relationship will last forever, will a seporation or devorce happen? Will she fall in love with another random ride? Its all very strange. confused

    Maybe she might divorce it or even cheat on it! That could be a messy scandal if 1001 Nacht finds out! Laughing

    ^Maybe she might have a big yard to build it in?

    I ride rides that I really like a lot and dont even know why. I never plan to marry any of them. Unless, I hit my head very hard and lose all sanity.
