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

Free parking Affordable food - The full service resturant the Alamo to Cotton Candy for $3. Shade from trees, and a swimming pool you can pay to swim at.... More

We have been going to Knoebel's for 5 years now and we absolutely love it. The entire place is reminiscent of a simpler time before technology took over our lives. 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

If any park deserves the high attendance its been getting over last few years, it's Knoebles. If any park deserves the good reviews its been getting, it's Knoebles. Want an old fashioned park that lacks the high ticket prices? Want to ride a few rides without paying $70 or $80 just to walk in the gate? Want to ride older... More

I thought this past summer we would give Knoebel's another shot ( due to a horrid experience we had several years ago ) however the park has not changed one bit in the meantime, it is not wheelchair accessible, the attendants on the rides offer no assistance, the food quality has been lowered, ( I even got sick after several...

Fun arcade! Award winning food - air conditioned restaurant, homemade ice-cream. Gift shops. The Carousel Museum is a must see. No entrance fee! Old school -... More

I didn't know what to think about this amusement park so I took my family to see for myself. We had a great time. It was reasonably cheap for as many rides as went on. The kids were not disappointed at all and we definitely all want to go back again in the Summer of 2015. Give it a shot... More

The food is incredible (more options than I've seen at any other amusement park of the same size), there are rides for children and for adults, the pool is huge, and best of all, admission to the park is free (you only pay for what you do, and the prices are extremely reasonable). Knoebels is an American treasure.

My family and I have traveled across the country and gone to many many amusement parks (the various Six Flags, Kennywood, Dorney, Disney) but there is really nothing like Knoebels. It is still family owned and operated with many loving touches and attention to details. For example, the Grand Carousel still has brass rings for you to grab, with one... More

Knoebels is like taking a step back in time, it is a classic ride park in the middle of Pennsylvania in the Woods with very little else around. The best feature is the free admission to get in and free parking. Rides are pay as you go or you can buy all day wristbands during the week. The food is... More
