Knoebels is a place the whole family can enjoy! It is America's largest free-admission amusement park and also offers free parking, free daily entertainment and free picnic facilities. While at the park, you can take a dip in our 900,000 gallon Crystal Pool filled with refreshing mountain stream water. The pool area includes watersides, diving boards and a play area just for young children. You can stay overnight at one of two campgrounds that include cabins and over 800 campsites for tents and campers. In addition to over 60 rides, award winning food, swimming, games, and gift shops, visitors can add a round of golf at Knoebels Three Ponds Golf Club right next door to the park.

I attended this park on a couple of occasions, once on company appreciation event and once purely as a visitor. On both occasions I was struck by the location, the landscaping, the meticulous care given to the upkeep and cleanliness and overall evidence of pride on display. A really neat wooden roller coaster and a collection of rides suitable for... More

I read several reviews of this park and decided to go. I didn't get the unlimited ride stamp as I was going with a 9 year old and decided I wouldn't get full value. I was right. I spent roughly $45 total and we rode till she was tired. Great value and very positive Experience. I'd go back for sure.

Our daughter got married at this resort. The employees were wonderful and very helpful. Even through the rain, we had a great day. We stayed in a cottage for three nights.

This is a great amusement park with some options lost at other parks. When we take the kids and my parent to a park we have to pay for everyone to get in. My parents enjoy the walk in the park and family time but do not use ant rides. This park has free entry into the park with the... More
