I enjoyed my first and final visit to KD Friday afternoon.Thankfully, we took advantage of the 41 per person discount rate that was only offered this past weekend.I've driven past the park several times en route to my sisters apartment in nc and id always dreamed about patronizing it.I finally got my chance and i was not disappointed in the rides.Volcano, flight, the stuntcoaster were my favs.I was very disappointed in the intimidator. i wanted to ride that one first but it wasnt as good as i thought it was going to be.Flight of fear best ride in park.Probably one of the best thrill rides ive ever rode.Park is beautifully landscaped and i love all the shade.However, i have three detractions regarding kd.first, no signage whatsoevr to indicate exactly where u are in the park. No signs that show "you are here" or this is how to find the rides.very few signs you had to rely on the park map.KD managment definitely needs to invest in more signage.Second issue-park food is incredibly overpriced!*8 for a bbq sandwhich. and i had a cheesesteak fries and coke- $15 per person per meal.Damn!Who wants to pay that.Im from Northeast Pa and at Knoebels you can eat three meals for that price.Third and final issue with KD- rudeness and complacency of staff. I asked staff questions in the park about attractions they looked at me like i was an alien. either they didn't respond or didnt care.they wrent busy either.Also, after riding the intimidator, i was cussed out by the ride operator because my harness for whatever reason wouldn't release.I unhooked the buckle, and then attempted to push down on the lap bar hoping that it would release automatically.The operator started yelling at me " push down on red pushd down on red!" Red what? He shouldve said push down on harness that is red in color. finally, he snapped and said "push down on f uckin red!" whoa! no need to cuss.
Since i will not drive down 95 through virgnia for a long time to come, i had an enjoyable afternoon on the rides.5 hours of fun i nthe park is enough for one person.its a great park and beautifully landscaped,but once is enough. I probably won't return.i rode all the rides. besides, dorney and hershey have the same type of rides and for much less money during its busiest months. KD regular admission is 55 or 60 thats way too much. ill visit dorney again before kd. its not worth driving an additional 5 hours to kd. again, between cost of hotel, food concessions, admissions etc for a family your talking close to 1K or more. no amusement park is worth spending that sort of dough. ken
