I went here as a child with my grandmother and now I bring my own grandchildren. It is a magical place where memories are made for calling back when you're older. Family, food, fun! We travel all the way up to the park from Virginia...More

Great place to take a family, very reasonably priced. Pay as you go, for rides and food. Free parking and admission. Good food, better than most amusement parks and doesn’t cost a fortune. We try to go at least once a year.

Seriously the greatest place on earth and you can’t beat the cost with you bring children. Adults don’t have to pay admission unless they plan on riding rides. And then you have the option to just pay for certain rides or purchase a ride-all-day pass....More

I have been going to Knoebels for years. (Many, many, many). What I miss the most is the small town charm, the Knoebel cottages just a short distance from the park, a walk in the creek early in the morning into the park to watch...More

My family and I really appreciate this park. Some of it’s perks are: free admission, loads of kiddies rides, and flexibility in rides and payment. We arrived 2pm and didn’t want to purchase a band for the entire day, so we bought a book of...More
