  • The prices are so cheap. Never paid for parking, no entrance fee and an entire pizza and drinks for a family of 5 for under 20 bucks. Plus, if you go after 5pm you only pay 12 dollars to ride everything going as much as you want! This is a great place for all ages from 0 to 100. The kids rides are amazing and so many to keep them busy all day. Their decorative theme is felt throughout the park and overall is the best amusement park in the US. For the bang for your buck! The road and night is a bit scary so drive slow as it is 2 lanes ... one way per direction and no street lighting. So please drive safe.
  • I enjoyed Knoebels when I was a kid, and now I enjoy bringing my daughter. So many great rides for all ages, and since you don't have to pay to enter, it's no big deal to stop by for just an hour or two. Lots of reasonably-priced food, too. We also like to go here because leashed dogs are allowed inside the park. Much easier to go spend a day at a park when I don't have to find somebody to take care of our dog while we're gone.
  • What's not to love about this park? You don't pay to park. There is no entrance fee. You can bring your own food and drink (no alcohol). You pay for the rides you want to ride. They have a pool (separate fee) that is clean and fun. Renting chairs is reasonable. Everything in the park and pool is reasonably priced. It's simply good fun and happy times. By far one of THE best amusement parks in the country!
  • There is a real good staff here. Employees actually smile and speak to you. Park is clean, pay as you go or ride all day option a throw back, and appreciated. Good food, good ride selection. Allow a 56 yr old to return to a kid. My thanks to the staff.
  • Going to Knoebels has been a tradition in my extended family for over a decade, and as a 24 year-old, I still look forward to our annual Labor Day visit; it's one of my most favorite and anticipated weekends of each year. The free parking and admission is great, especially for those who are money-conscious. If you have relatives who can't go on rides, but still want to spend time with the family, this is the perfect place to go. A large chunk of the park is wooded, which allows for a plenty of shade and a great atmosphere, which is further enhanced by the old fashioned style of a lot of the buildings and other structures. Along with being wooded, it's also less commercialized than other parks, which makes it feel more relaxing and genuine instead of being a quick cash grab. Honestly, I can't praise this park enough; it's truly one of my favorite places to visit and haven't had a bad experience yet. If you're looking for the hottest new rides, look elsewhere, but the selection is still great. If you're in the area, what's there to lose in trying out a park with free parking and admission?
