We have been going to Knoebel's Amusement Resort for at least 50 plus years. It is one of the great free admission parks in Pennsylvania. If you plan on going make sure you get there plenty early because the park fills up very quickly certainly on weekends. They have wonderful musical shows all summer long at the band shell. The...

The whole experience is great from camping to pool to all the park rides. Moderately priced and we plan on visiting again for the 3rd year in a row.

the only difficult with Knoebel's Resort is the difficulty in getting in... and it's not Knoebel's fault, it's just so very popular... so whatever suggestions the website makes concerning reservation, follow them or be sorry... Knoebel's is good those to those who are good to Knoebel's and makes sure former clients are kept apprised of deadlines... just a terrific, safe,... More

My family has been going here since before I was born, and I still go with my friends now (in our mid-twenties!) Knoebels is not meant for people who like insane roller coasters, but everything else you could want is there! The park is beautiful and clean, the people are always friendly, the food's great, and the rides are always... More

This was our first trip to Knoebel's and it won't be our last. First, let me say that I would avoid the Covered Bridge Festival like crazy (unless you like crowds), but many "regulars" informed me that Knoebel's is not usually that crowded. We paid $50 in tickets for a family of 5 and they lasted us two days! Make... More

Knoebel's remains one of the best bargains for family fun at a cost affordable especially for young families. With no entry fee and the opportunity to buy all day passes or tickets for ride, the visit can be tailored to meet specific family needs- NO huge fee for Grandma who is not going to spend all day on the rides....

A lot of my love for this place is tradition...came here when I was a kid and have taken my children here since they were infants and they are now tweens and they still love it. We were just there for the covered bridge festival at the beginning of October. The park is affordable, clean and is just plain fun.... More

Knoebel's is a great family amusement park in contrast to the bigger more commercial theme parks. The rides are smaller and older but still loads of fun and the lines are not as long. You pay per ride instead of one lump sum to get into the park so it's a nice outing even for people who do not wish... More

Fun time at Knoebels but the lines were extremely long for food and rides. Understandably a lot of attractions were closed for the season. It was a perfect fall day so I'm sure this led to the crowded conditions. Excellent apple dumpling!
