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.

Great place

I brought my 4 y.o. son here and we loved it. He was able to go on most of the rides and they were very fun. The food was very good as well.

This place is fantastic! Free parking, pay for the rides you want to ride or pay nothing at all. One of the best wooded roller coasters of all time "The Phoenix". Great food stands, ice cream and mini golf.

Took our kids and grand-kids to Knoebels for their first visit and had a great time. We find the park to be very family friendly and reasonable. I like that the pricing scheme allows my wife and I, (who are not big on rides) to go on the ones we like and bypass others without having to pay for the... More

We attended on a Saturday. Our plan was to swim at the pool and then go on a few rides. You could get your hand stamped if you left the pool but wanted to return. Only problem is they ask you to turn in your locker key. So you either take your stuff back to the car or take a... More

My kids loved the rides, as did I! The wristband for the rides for all day rides are a great deal for the kids but my husband and I probably could have saved some bucks and just used tickets. Lesson learned. The pool was fun and cooling with the tube slides being a favorite. There is a great selection of... More

Knoebels is not like any other amusement park. You do not pay to park or to enter. It is well mantained and organized. It is home to one of my favorite roller coasters of all time, The Phoenix. The food here is delicious and reasonably priced. The games like roller bowler are also reasonably priced. You can pay per ride... More

Love the trackless roller coaster - so unique and fast! Bumper cars are better here than anywhere. Don't miss the free magic show - 3 times a day. Reasonable prices. Outstanding food. Great atmosphere. Can get crowded. An annual excursion. Wished we lived closer.

This was my first visit to Knoebels. My PA family has been there several times before and love it. I went with my daughter and 2 grandsons-5&6. Met my sister, niece and 2 yo grandniece. I loved the day of fun. So many rides for young children. The children loved the rides. The food we had was good. We are... More
