Knoebels Amusement Resort, Elysburg

4.7
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.

  • 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!!
  • This is a great family amusement park! We have been coming here for 20 years. It is a free admission park, you pay for the rides with tickets or you can purchase a ride all day wrist band. There are many shops for souvenirs. Lots of options for for food. I would say it's the most budget minded park in the country. There bumper cars were rated best in the country one year. They have several carousels one of which you grab rings as it goes around and try to catch a golden ring for a free ride. Which was also voted best in the country. This is a very nostalgic experience wish there were more parks like this. This park is also dog friendly. You can even bring your dog on rides. They offer cabin,cottage and campground lodging right on site so you camp in the park. I would recommend this park to everyone
  • Always fun, always affordable for any budget, pet friendly and supportive of gluten free. I actually had gluten free chicken fingers made with real chicken breast. It was excellent. Lots of free entertainment and browsing. Best amusement park ever!! Great wooden roller coasters - Phoenix is the Best of them all!!
  • A wonderful hidden gem! A bit out of the way but the long ride is well worth it. The park is well maintained with lots of shaded areas. No admission fee, means those of us with large families that don't have a family full of thrill seekers can also enjoy the park, paying for only the rides we want to ride. We do buy some of the kids an u unlimited ride band as they will definitely use it. There is a great variety of rides and a wonderful nostalgic feel. The food is great quality without breaking the bank.
