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.

I love this place it is great for families. I like it here because you pay by the rides instead of one price park admission. As a person who don't ride many rides that is great because I can still walk around and don't have to pay to do it. They also have a swimming pool there that is always... More

Nice laid back place out in the country. No charge to park. No charge to enter and walk around. You pay as you ride or buy an all day pass. They don't gouge you on prices for food. Not your typical amusement park food. Plenty of shade and places to sit and watch on those hot summer days. Safe to... More

4 adults and 3 children (4, 8 and 10) had a fun experience at this free entry and parking amusement park. There were rides for all ages. Relived childhood riding on a 1913 built merry go round trying to catch the brass ring and then return the ones caught to the lion's mouth. The newest coaster was not in service... More

There's a ride at Knobles called the Sky Slide. It's shaped like a big rocket ship and you walk inside and up a winding staircase to the top where you wait in line to go down the winding slide around the outside of said rocketship. It's my favorite ride and it has been since I was a girl. Sometimes I... More

I have been visiting Knoebel's for 40 years now and never get tired of it. The Pioneer train is my absolute favorite ride; I enjoy all the new additions as well. The food is good and it's a clean, safe place.

Knoebels is the best park for family fun. You can either buy a wrist band for the entire day or buy ride tickets and pay as you go. I love this park if you have Grandparents that enjoy watching the kids on the rides, but no longer ride the rides. They have great rides for any ages. Check on there... More

If there is anyone in your family that doesn't like rides but wants to spend a fun day with those who do this is the place for you. Many trees make a hot day bearable. No asphalt and concrete like other parks. Swimming available, live entertainment, also arcades, Vintage merry go round and antique cars. I guarantee you will love... More
