We went to Knoebel's for the first time with some friends who have been going there for years. We went before Halloween so the park and all of the rides were decorated with a Halloween theme. This was a very nice touch. You can tell that the owners really care about the impression the park has on people and their... More

Knoebels is by far the best park for my family. I love that you do not have to pay to walk around. I get severely motion sick and not having to pay a ridiculously high entrance fee is a definite pay off for our family.. We have been camping at the campground for 20 years and absolutely love the time... More

An old fashion family oriented amusment park . As a single Mother I feel very safe taking my boys here, since there are tight security, and the stuff are very friendly. The rides are very safe, and the there are rides, and things to do for all ages. I highly recommend Knobels if you , and the best thing of... More

My husband and I visited Knoebels on Friday, October 10--arrived early, a little after 5 p.m. Easy parking, easy to get in....we didn't ride any rides, we just walked around, ate, and visited stores. The Bavarian ham sandwich and disco fries (gravy and cheese) at the Food Court were EXCELLENT! My husband also liked his cheesesteak from a vendor. The... More

We have gone to Knoebels for the past 20yrs. We only missed two years out of those. We love going on the rides and the food is awesome. The camping is fun in the campground. For the people who don't ride, it's even better because you can walk with the family and don't have to pay a red cent unless... More

Love this place. The fact that you do not have to pay for parking is a big plus and they still provide a tram ride to and from the park. We have been here a couple of times and enjoy everything from the rides to the food, especially the soft serve ice cream. We like to go on Friday when... More

We so look forward to this festival. We've gotten some beautiful items over the years; it seems that we never come home empty handed. So many vendors - there's something for everyone. Clothing items, purses, candles, soaps, wreaths, painted glass items, jewelry, wood accent pieces, fall and Halloween items, tons of Christmas decorations and so many unusual gift items. Tons...

Knoebel's Amusement Park is a treasure for amusement park geeks. Featuring three fantastic wooden coasters, all lovingly well maintained, it's a must-visit. Their Haunted Mansion ride is a lot of fun, and their commitment to authentic historical thrills is evident in their recreation of the classic Flying Turns coaster. But it helps to know when to visit. I'd avoid any... More

Knoebels Grove is a longtime family place for us. Now with children grown we love going just the two of us to walk around weekday evenings after work for dinner and dessert. Shade to keep cooler when needed and sunshine for sunflowers. Still enjoy riding a few rides but even better if we only go to enjoy watching the grandchildren... More

I have been going to Knoebels since the late 70's.I have watched it grow from a small amusement park to a regional park on everybody's bucket list. The problem is Knoebels can't handle the increased volume that it is attracting. On one recent Saturday in August it took us 75 minutes to get into the lot. The two lane roads... More
