  • LOVE THIS PLACE! I'VE BEEN GOING HERE SINCE I WAS BORN! 19 YEARS AND COUNTING! The people here are very friendly. AWESOME amusement park for newborns, kids, teens, families, friends, and senior citizens too! Great place to stay in the campground overnight. The campground is fairly large. You meet new people. I met 2 kids who were around 8 years old and they were fearless of almost any ride. The rides are really fun and safe too. I recommend Knoebels to be a safe and fun park! Knoebels is my #1 favorite amusement park in the world! I encourage people to come here!
  • One of my favorite places on earth. It's very affordable, has some of the best rides I've ever been on, and always a great time. Even the times I've been here and it's been packed the lines always move pretty quickly. It's a great place to go with family with kids or just adults, with friends or acquaintances to get to know them better... Definitely fun and memorable spot to go on a date. I had one of my best here... 🥰 More places in the world should be like Knoebels!!
