Knoebels Amusement Resort, Elysburg

Knoebels Amusement Resort has been family-owned and operated by the Knoebels family since 1926.

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.

    What can I say about Knoebels. A great amusement park full of rides, food and entertainment. It has been a family tradition to camp here every memorial day with family and friends which we are not the only ones to have I am sure. What people like most about the park is that admission is 0$, so if you're not into rides you are not paying for them however on some days you can get wristbands if you're a rides person. Speaking of the rides, the wooden ones are the best, especially Twister. Their newest coaster, Impulse which is their first steel one really gets your adrenaline going. Food is great​ and I recommend the Old Mill for really really delicious ice cream. Staff are nice and the park is clean. The campgrounds is also a very nice environment and big for biking and doing other stuff. Best amusement park in my book!

    This is absolutely our favorite amusement park! It is such a laid back place where you don't feel like they are trying to gouge you for every penny you have. The parking is free, the admission is free so you just pay for whatever rides you wish to ride. Now, it isn't the place with the most or best thrill rides, but it is a great place for families. We just love the atmosphere and the nostalgic feel of the place.

    I feel this is one of the best places to visit! You are able to pick your budget and get the most out of what you take. Not many parks will let you bring your own food and drinks. No admission to the park is wonderful. The all day ride band is a great value, if you are able to be there on days they offer the deal.

    Great amusements. Fantastic staff. Terrific food. Gorgeous water park. Family friendly grounds, fully equipped to handle large groups/parties. Posting this comment after my fifth visit with my family my kids always have a blast! There is something for everyone from every generation.

    Best amusement park for families! We took our 2.5yo and he was able to ride 10+ rides either alone or with my husband. And they have THE BEST food! Can't say enough good things!
