  • Great Place For The Kids And The Family. As this has been our tradition to camp here and go swimming in their crystal pool, 10/10 Would definitely recommend.

  • An awesome park in the mountains. Some unique rides and okay food. Be careful of the phoenix I almost flew out of that. Otherwise we had a good time.

  • What a blast! Our family of 4 recently went to Knoebels for the first time and it was awesome! We stayed for 7 hours and our kids who are 6 & 4 weren't ready to leave! The park was very clean and the walk ability was great! The staff was also very friendly! There were so many rides for our children and even though they are on the shorter side, there was a perfect kid zone for little ones under 54 inches tall! My daughter, who is only 36 inches tall was even able to ride a kiddie coaster and she loved it! The food was delicious and priced well for a theme park too! The only thing I noticed was there weren't a lot of water fountains which would have been nice, but we loved how flexible the pricing was as well! You could buy a wrist band for a full day of rides or a booklet of tickets! We bought $150 worth of tickets and it lasted all day for a family of 4! Great theme park, especially for younger children!
  • Was recently back in Pennsylvania visiting and went to Knoebels for the first time in years - just as great as I remember it! Love all of the rides, that admission is still free, and that you can bring your own food into the park! It is beautifully placed and love that you are riding rides while surrounded by mountains. Gorgeous! Such a great and nostalgic park. Can't wait to visit again!
