Knoebels is a place the whole family can enjoy! It is America's largest free-admission amusement park and also offers free parking, free daily entertainment and free picnic facilities. While at the park, you can take a dip in our 900,000 gallon Crystal Pool filled with refreshing mountain stream water. The pool area includes watersides, diving boards and a play area just for young children. You can stay overnight at one of two campgrounds that include cabins and over 800 campsites for tents and campers. In addition to over 60 rides, award winning food, swimming, games, and gift shops, visitors can add a round of golf at Knoebels Three Ponds Golf Club right next door to the park.

The new roller coaster looks amazing! I enjoyed the wooden coaster and a new spinning ride. I really appreciate the picnic facilities in the park, and love the free admission; we were able to stop by for a couple hours just to see what's new before bringing our family later in the summer.

Even a year later, I still think a lot about Knoebels. This small, charming amusement park seems trapped in time when things were just supposed to be layed back and fun. The park is loaded with terrific flat rides, great food, and classic atmosphere that will quickly absorb your attention. Put this place on your list of things you MUST... More

I don't agree with the poor reviews on this park. It is not Hershey, and it also does not cost that high price. Secondly, the park is now entirely smoke free, unlike other reviews have suggested. Some of these reviews are people looking to make a buck off their own stupidity. It's not the park's fault you came when it... More

This was the first time for our Special needs daughter to ride a roller coaster, swing, and the other attractions. The operators were excellent to understand our concerns, and make us comfortable that the child would be safe in case she could not handle the fun. The operator took the time without holding everyone else up to advise us of... More

We came on a Saturday and the park was crowded. Still the lines were short for the two wooden roller coasters. I liked how you only paid for the rides you wanted to enjoy. The park is geared toward younger children and very family friendly. They were picnic tables and you could bring your own food which is nice for... More

The best thing is free admission and free parking. You can either get a hand stamp or buy a few tickets. This park has not only rides, but museums, camping, shopping, and the very best food at a park! They also have daily stage shows. I can not say enough good things about Knoebles. We have gone here for over... More

Beyond great and we could bring our Chihuahua on rides that allow "babes in arms". Food is great and half the price of Disney! No admission or parking fees, so bring the whole gang. Variety of rides, awesome, adorable, retro buildings, friendly employees, coal mine and lumber recreations; just the most and best!

I love this family friendly, family owned and operated, family affordable amusement park in a lovely wooded area. Free parking, free admission with reasonably priced food ($3.50 hamburger, $3.95 ham sandwich for example.) No gouging as in most amusement parks. They have 6 roller coasters, including 2 wooden, one is in most top ten wooden coaster lists, a lot of... More

I've been going to Knoebel's for as long as I can remember, which is a pretty long time. We live within driving distance, so we make multiple trips every single year! This park is one of the only ones that I've ever been to that offers free parking, free shuttle service (tram), free admission and free entertainment. If you're not... More
