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.

Knoebels never disappoints. Plenty of rides, free parking and plenty of different types of good food that won't break the bank. I could write an essay on this place but you have to go and experience this place yourself.

Hadn't been to Knoebels in about 10 years, but I've got a roller coaster enthusiast who has been to Six Flags, Dorney and Hershey plenty of times lately over the last few years and wanted to re-experience Knoebels as he's mostly forgotten it. It's secluded...More

First time visiting on a weekday using the bands. Free parking and free park access is unheard of and deserves 5 stars for just that. Many rides are old but for the price and experience, the trip is worth it. I only wish there were...More

Free to get in!? Yes please. Wonderful annual military appreciation tickets - we will go back. A little bummed with the late opening in the morning at 11, but we were able to get breakfast and play the diggers before heading on the road. Campsite...More

Knoebels....everything that is great about America, and very little that is wrong. Like taking a trip back in time to a less complicated era. Gave our active duty military member in our group $40 of free tickets. Rides were great. Food was delicious and affordable....More

A reasonably priced amusement park! Free parking and free admission takes all of the stress out of the typical amusement park experience. We almost made the mistake a going to Hershey Park--that would have cost us $260 just to get through the door. Next time,...More
