Knoebels Amusement Park Elysburg
Where are we going today?
You know what's great for the budget? A FREE admission family theme park with FREE parking and FREE entertainment! That's right! Knoebels Amusement Park in Pennsylvania is the perfect budget friendly experience for your family day out
Whilst you can grab an "all you can ride" pass, each ride is individually priced, so you can spend as much or as little as you like!
What are the rides we're talking about? Let's go exploring shall we!
Why don't we start with the thrill rides? Coasters, water rides, dark rides, spinning rides, fast rides....all the rides you could want! You can take a mine car through a haunted house, through pitch black tunnels and ghostly miners, or perhaps you will be spun by a particle accelerator forwards, and backwards, and round and round and round!
You'll be spun like a pendulum on the Fandango, or braving the rough pirate waters on the swinging Galleon pirate ship. Don't forget to make a splash on the Giant Flume - that old favorite that takes you through a peaceful scenic woodland until you get to that dark cavern!
But don't worry if you prefer the more gentle, family and kiddie rides. There are plenty of them too! Little kids can explore the depths of the ocean on the submarine, or relax on that old time classic carousel.
Motor boats, mini coasters, trains and jets all feature together to make your experience at Knoebels Amusement Park the most fun it can be!
It's not all rides though, there is that FREE entertainment we told you about! You can visit those grand Bald Eagles in the Bald Eagle Habitat, or look back through time at the Knoebels Carousel Museum. There are play areas, theatre productions and even other great museums to explore. All FREE!
Why not give your wallet a rest, and just focus on having a great time at Knoebels Amusement Park!

This place is in the middle of NOWHERE!!! That being said, we absolutely loved it! The staff went above and beyond for my son, who is autistic/non verbal. The rides brought back memories from my childhood and were in good condition. The snacks at this place were awesome, and the prices were definitely on the lower side. This place is nowhere near as sleek and fancy as other theme parks. It's kind of like a campground with an amusement park from the 70's plopped in the middle of it. I brought my children ages 4 and 7 and they had a blast. We used...Read More

BEST THEME PARK FOR FAMILIES EVER!! So much fun to ride safe coasters while still getting a thrill. The ambiance is great, family oriented. There are water rides and dry ones. Beautiful scenery all around, and one of the best parts..only pay (inexpensively) for what you actually get on!!! Love it. You can also camp and cook there. Can't get better.

Been taking my family here for 6+ years. The prices are more than reasonable. Love camping; especially with full privies, laundry & electricity. G-rated family setting at the amusement park. The amusement park is fun - wooden roller coasters are top notch for a local family owned business. The staff are extremely helpful and polite. The food is better than carnival food. There is the Old Mill - best sundae shop!

The 1960's are back and better than ever.
Many thanks to the Knobel family and employees for maintaining a little slice of low-stress happiness.

I brought my children ages 4 and 7 and they had a blast. We used the pool, and went on a bunch of rides. You can either pay for each ride as you wish (via tickets) or you can buy a wristband to access everything and just let it rip. I highly recommend Knoebels, because it takes you back to a time when things were just a little simpler, and less snazzy. If you can get down with that, than Knoebels is for you.
