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.

Fun place with a great variety of attractions ranging from high intensity wooden roller coasters and modern thrill rides to kiddie activities. Food is good quality at a reasonable price for this area of the country. No parking and entry fees give customers more control over how much a day in the park will cost them. Save time for the...

A friend and I went to Knoebels. No fee for parking or to get into the park. We got tickets to ride several rides (all good prices too). We rode the haunted mansion ride twice (it is better than Disney's haunted ride). Went on the Black Diamond Mine indoor roller coaster ride - really fun. Great view from the sky... More

We traveled with friends for our annual trip to Knoebels, and I find myself promoting this park every chance I get. This park has something for ALL families with young or older children in their teens! Scenic ride to the park. Parking......free. Admission to the park......free. You either pay for the day pass for rides or buy tickets that are... More

Knoebels is a theme park in the middle of nowhere. It is a hour (almost 2 for us) drive through scenic mountains. The park offers free admission & picnic pavilions galore. There is plenty of parking on grass and even a tram to get you close the the park with your cooler! Admittance to the many rides uses tickets that... More

We had traveled to a well know park near Knoebels. While reading online someone said Knoebels was not to be missed. Boy were they right! This place is in the middle of nowhere. We went with zero expectations. Coming in the entrance near parking the park looked very small...except for the large steel coaster. Once I grabbed a map and... More

I had very low expectations coming here so that may affect my rating but, I was pleasantly surprised by the park. I have been to many amusement parks and I expected this to be more traveling carnival than amusement park, I was wrong. The roller coasters are decent, the flume ride is very good, and the rides overall are pretty... More
