I almost want to not say anything to keep this place a secret... but I believe Knoebel's deserves recognition for preserving the family environment most of the "thrill parks" of the Northeast have let go. Free Parking. Free Park Entry. That means this is affordable for everyone. Yes, for those who do not want to ride the attractions, you can... More

I have been going to Knoebels since I was a kid. I now take my son. There is no admission fee and parking is free. Not like when you go to Hershey park and have to pay $70 to just walk around the park if you don't ride the rides. Knoebels is very easy to walk around. There are trees... More

This is the second year I have taken my grandchildren to Knoebels and they love it. We stayed for 3 nights in the Hampton Inn in Danville and went to the park all 3 days. The middle day was spent at the Crystal Pool and the kids were sliding all day. We had dinner for 5 people at the Alamo... More

This place takes you back in time. A lot of old rides from way back. Fun to walk around and take in the sights.

Well you pay nothing and that is what you get. We went there based on a get-together organized by our distant family. As I was parking a slanted stretch of grass (no parking lot) I was not having a good feeling. As we entered the park, we realized that there is no entrance fee. Obviously, it shows in the quality...

This little family owned gem in the middle of the Pennsylvania mountains is a must do experience for the whole family. They have made some improvements in policies such as running both trains on the roller coasters to move crowds through the lines. Park employees are friendly and efficient. Food quality is both good and affordable. Admission is free. Patrons... More

WOW what a place for the whole family .No hassle parking and no admission fees, just great rides and pleanty of fun just like when you were a kid. You can camp out right in the park also. Don't forget the Merry-go-round and the old fashioned bumper cars and most of all the ROLLER COASTER or just take your picnic... More

Second trip here and couldn't have been better. Here in Sept, just perfect! Not crowded, very reasonable prices, the food was great (lunch for 5-under $24). Unbelievable ! Where are you going to feed a family of 5 for $24 at ANY Amusement Park? Usually we pack a lunch at Dorney or Great Adventure due to the crazy expense and... More

My family and i stayed at the camp ground for two nights, and we wish we could have stayed longer! the camp sites are kept clean and most campers are local regulars from around penn, very friendly people and very welcoming. campsites had electrical outlets and even a wooden slab to put your tent on rather then pinning it into...

This is a well kept secret, I have been enjoying this park for the past 8 years and I can never get enough. Everything is outstanding. I never have any complaints and if you ever want a giant banana split this is the place to get one. The food is outstanding and guess what? No parking fees or admission. Unlike... More
