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.

Came with here with some of our little ones and had such a great time that we came back barely two weeks later! I would suggest making this a two day trip - so that you can take a leisurely time and enjoy all of it - we couldn't do it all in one day. Wrist bands are worth it... More

This amusement park is one of the best around. Free parking and admission and the rides are reasonable. The kids love it and the adults too! Great thrill rides! The picnic areas have grills and you can bring your own to cook or buy from the many food areas available. Pets are allowed on leashes. Good time every time!

Sure the parking and the admission are free...and the kids usually enjoy the place...but I do feel the place is starting to go downhill. Grumpy ride operators, dirty rides (can you just wipe down a seat or a handlebar once in a while?) and some rides that just need to go away (those boats...so bad!). It's a good value...I get...

Awesome park & campground for all ages. Free parking. You can bring your own food or purchase very reasonably priced food. Plenty of shade and benches for resting. Exceptionally clean.

My family visited in July and it was lots of fun. I like that you can pay per ride or get a wrist band. No admission fee and food/drinks are pretty reasonable. Highly recommend.

This amusement park is truly a family driven park. You pay as you ride with tickets so there is not a huge entry fee that makes you feel like you have to try and get your moneys worth. You only pay for what you ride. They have good food and shopping for crafts and souvenirs. My family has been going... More

We went to Knoebels Labor Day weekend and had a blast. My kids ages 3,6,7,9 loved it here. My husband and I just used tickets while kids got wristbands. The park is affordable and I was told food was awesome here although we did not try, will try next time and very affordable compared to other food at Hershey or... More

We went to Hallo-Fest at Knoebels in October with a large group of people - a lot of familes, We had such a blast! The kids dress up in costumes and have so much fun. It's so inexpensive you can go on ride after ride, after ride. And the food is amazing!!!!!
