Knoebels is a wonderful amusement park. They have a couple of great wooden roller coasters and many other fun rides. I have yet to try their camping grounds or pools with water slides. The slides look amazing! There is no enter or parking fee and you pay per ride. It is a great place for families!

One of the best amusement parks. What we really like is that you can just walk around and not pay an admission fee if you are not going to ride the attractions. You can buy tickets or buy a band. Very nice variety. Good food that is reasonably priced unlike other parks I have visited. We all had a great... More

We've been going to Knoebel's for as long as we've had kids - and it's always a big hit with everyone. There is no charge for parking, no admission charge. If you want to just go and watch your kids have fun, no cost. Arm bands are reasonably priced and you can pay as you go as well. We've been... More

No fee to enter park! You can walk and enjoy the park. They have very good food. You can purchase ride and pool tickets throughout the park. Best roller coasters and pool! Just a fun time, each and every time we go.

We camp here every year for summer vacation. We love the fact that we can come and go from the park to our campsite. For the first time this year we went to one of their Halloween weekends. We had a great time. They do such a neat job decorating the park. One of the best places to visit with... More

Visiting the last Saturday of Halloween proved to be quite the experience. This was my first time for the event, arriving at 415 pm, and this was the most crowded I have ever seen it. Longest coaster wait was expected, 30 minutes for the Flying Turns. You need to pay attention to the attendants, as they were calling for single... More

My first time at the park this weekend was a walk back in time. It was inexpensive and the food was really good. We has cheese steaks, better than philly cheese steaks, honest. Home cut french fries, ice cream, etc.. I was especially impressed with the way they honor our veterans and have some of them working there! The horses... More
