This park is a simple down home place. Your entrance is free and so is parking. There are shaded area's, and plenty of food items to choose from. I enjoy it here!

I only live 30 min from Knoebels so I have visited many many times. Admission and parking are always free which make it the most affordable amusement park anywhere! Very easy to just buy tickets as you go. Great family atmosphere and much of the park is shaded. On a few occasions I have visited the pool and the 2... More

I enjoy Knoebel's Groves with my family the last four years. The admission is free and so is parking. I can eat my way through the park because the food is delicious. They have items that I remember when I was little. The rides are simple (Tilt-A-Whirl) up to roller coasters.

It is like stepping back in time to enjoy the old time entertainment for the whole family. If you can , reserve a cabin or site to stay in the park both day and night. We love it here.

Great small amusement park with a personal feel. Pay for what you ride. Pool and camping available. Easy to spend a couple days there. Relaxing with everything from roller coasters to kiddie trains!

Okay remember the parks of yesteryear? Well this is it, but add some rather large coasters and thrill rides. You do not pay for parking. You do not pay for admission. You just pay for the rides you want, and I believe they do have arm bands. The food is good as well and reasonable. A family of 4 could... More

My family and I have been going to Knoebels for 10 years. We have a great time. We've done the rides and we've done the water park. The rides are fun, the food is great, and they have awesome museums. We love the history of Knoebels museum. This amusement park has rides for all ages and is so much fun.... More

There is no parking or admission fee you just walk in and the fun begins. You pay per ride which there are many including a few great roller coaster and... More
