Knoebels Amusement Resort has been family-owned and operated by the Knoebels family since 1926. The park is located in a wooded valley, which also encompasses a picnic grove and campground, and features over 60 roller coasters and an antique carousal from 1913. It has received a number of honors, including multiple Amusement Today Golden Ticket awards for best amusement park food. While the park is well known for its wooden roller coasters, it is perhaps most famous for its haunted house ride, Haunted Mansion, which was featured on Discovery Channel.

There is nothing about this place I can say that hasn't already been said. But it's definitely worth repeating. This is one of the best amusement parks I have ever been to. It's free to park. You can get a ride all day pass for reasonable price or buy tickets ride to ride. The food is absolutely amazing and priced fairly AKA no $20 combo meal that's literally just frozen chicken fingers or overpriced water and soda. Plus it's so shady and beautiful. Definitely the park to go to
Knoebels is a place that I have loved since I was a young child and I love taking my child and sharing such a wonderful place with him. It's great that there are no admission or parking fees. Because if that and the reasonable prices for the food and rides, I can take my family more than one a year. They also have great free entertainment in many areas of the park. Some of the entertainment involves audience participation with the children and parents which makes for some great memories. The park is set in a nice rural area with great views. Even on sunny days there is plenty of relief from the sun in the shade of the many trees throughout the park. They have two train rides, one that goes around the edge of the park and another that goes through the woods. They are both great, but often the one that goes through the woods includes wildlife sightings such as squirrels and deer. Closer to Halloween the park has a fun haunted theme that we enjoy every year. This park is very unique and makes for a great alternative to the other much more expensive park options.
