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.

My wife and I visited the park on our way to NYC and it was a trip back in time. Most of the park was very much like it was when we were kids (40 years ago). It does have some awesome new rides, but we enjoyed seeing that the bumper cars, boat ride, train, carousel, haunted house, etc. were... More

Knoebels is a hidden gem in Pennsylvania. This amusement park does not charge admission and instead is a pay-as-you ride park. They offer hand stamps, wrist bands and specials after dusk. The atmosphere is family friendly and very relaxing. This place is a family favorite for us. There are rides for all ages. I would highly recommend riding the Phoenix... More

We had a fun day that lasted mostly from opening to closing. We purchased wrist bands for the boys and used tickets for the adults. This worked... More

I'm probably the only person in PA who had never been to Knoebels. Every chance I got to go to an amusement park I always went to the huge ones like Six Flags or Dorney. Finally got a chance to take the kids with some extended family to Knoebels and I don't know why I waited so long! This place... More

This park has something for everyone. If you are a thrill seekers they have great coasters, if you don't there are tamer rides like the merry go round and boats. There is a great selection for young children as well. The parking is free, there is no admission, you pay for the rides you want to go on. The food... More

Knoebels has an unbeatable atmosphere. It is relaxing, comfortable, and full of great food and rides. It is very affordable due to the lack of an admission or parking charge. Plus, plenty of tree and shades keep it comfortable even in the height of summer.

What a fantastic surprise! Knoebels offers fun for all ages with kiddie rides for the little ones and thrill rides for the braver folks. This charming theme park includes old classic rides like the Looper--the last of its kind--and heart stopping roller coasters like the Impulse. Prices were a little high but certainly within the normal range for any theme... More

I have heard of Knoebels for many years from many people, who all loved it. I had wanted to go but it never happened. However, we recently went to the Little League World Series and had a day free, so since this is only an hour drive from there I decided to finally do it, taking my two youngest children... More

This is a awesome park for families and couples--the rides are the star attractions but we love the food--especially the pizza, fries, fish dinner, milky way ice cream, bourbon black bean burger, funnel cakes, and popcorn. It's fun just to walk around and enjoy the park and listen to the bands, sometimes we get on rides but other times just... More
