    Great place to take the family. Free parking, free admissions, free use of the picnic areas and free entertainment at the grandstand. Rides are inexpensive and the food is fantastic.

    Reminds me of the local parks growing up. It's really in the middle of nowhere. Love that it's free to park & get in, you just pay for the rides. Food is reasonably priced for an amusement park.

    Awesome family run amusement park. Free admission, free parking. Must visit if you're passing anywhere near, even if you just want to have a picnic (with your own food if you want!) and go for a walk

    Usually end up coming to Knoebels numerous times just to do something for the day with friends or spend some time with family. Cheap! Lots of fun rides for all ages. Amazing pizza. All kinds of food.

    Literally one of the greatest places on earth. Awesome surroundings, fantastic food, excellent rides, amazing prices. I loved this place as a kid, as a teenager, as especially as a dad of two girls.

    America's largest free admission amusement park, also offering free parking, free use of picnic facilities and free entertainment. Shuttles run from a second campground, Knoebels Lake Glory.

    Log cabins to stay in, an amusement park right next to you, and, a basketball court (always a necessity) with refreshments right there for sale (unless you were actually camping in a tent right here).

    I'm a huge Disney fan but hands down one of the best amusement parks for families and grown ups. You'll never find more affordable park anywhere. Great old time feel and tradition

    Great family fun park. Everything is pretty affordable. They have areas for you to have picnics with your own food. Lots of rides for all age groups. Dippin' dots ^_^ plus two arcades.

    In 2015, Knoebels will unveil Impulse, the park’s fifth roller coaster. This new ride features a steel coaster standing 98 feet tall with one big drop and several loops - don't miss it!

    Wrist bands are worth it only if you stay all day and plan to just do rides. If you’re going to mini golf, eat around, swim, or play games, you are better off using ride tickets.

    Great selection of old rides that you rarely see anymore. Great coasters and great pool. Also much larger than a lot think, over 60 rides and 6 coasters. Non riders don't pay and won't feel cheated.

    I didn't know a place like this really existed anymore. Safe, super friendly and old and new school rides that are truly a hit with my family. Come camp in the Klondike section and stop by and say hi!

    Entering the gates is free and most ride rates are under $3.00. Be sure to check out The Phoenix, which was ranked in the top ten wooden roller coasters by the Los Angeles Times.

    Knoebels is genuine americana. Have kids? They will love it. Attention grandparents, you'll love watching the kids enjoy the rides you grew up with, at the similar prices! Lots of shade; dogs welcome.

    Best hand-dipped ice cream is at the Old Mill. For candy apples go to The Kandy Korner (near the Galleon). Love salty deep-fried pierogies? Go to the stand near the Paratroopers & Haunted House. YUM! Read more
