Trip Planner: USA / Pennsylvania / Elysburg / Knoebels Amusement Resort
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 park because it’s pay as you go. You don’t even have to ride the rides and just enjoy the beautiful park. Our Autistic son loves this park.

What a blast! Our family of 4 recently went to Knoebels for the first time and it was awesome! We stayed for 7 hours and our kids who are 6 & 4 weren't ready to leave! The park was very clean and the walk ability was great! The staff was also very friendly! There were so many rides for our children and even though they are on the shorter side, there was a perfect kid zone for little ones under 54 inches tall! My daughter, who is only 36 inches tall was even able to ride a kiddie coaster and she loved it! The food was delicious and priced well for a theme park too! The only thing I noticed was there weren't a lot of water fountains which would have been nice, but we loved how flexible the pricing was as well! You could buy a wrist band for a full day of rides or a booklet of tickets! We bought $150 worth of tickets and it lasted all day for a family of 4! Great theme park, especially for younger children!
Was recently back in Pennsylvania visiting and went to Knoebels for the first time in years - just as great as I remember it! Love all of the rides, that admission is still free, and that you can bring your own food into the park! It is beautifully placed and love that you are riding rides while surrounded by mountains. Gorgeous! Such a great and nostalgic park. Can't wait to visit again!
This place is a great options for families who don't plan to ride every ride. It's free admission and you purchase a book of tickets to use for the rides that you want! Or you can purchase an all day ride wrist band as well! If you purchase online before you go, you can save $5. Prices are reasonable here, overall clean! My family had a great time!
I love this tree covered amusement park. There are various foods, activities, events, and there is no admission. There's just a cost for tickets per ride. If you bring military ID you can also get some courtesy tickets to start. There are camping areas, pavilions, pools, rides for all ages, a cute train ride, and a cool museum about the history of coal mining in the region. The haunted house tends to have a line, but it's fun. It's scariness depends on how sensitive you are to the dark and jump scares. (forgot to get a picture of it this time so I added a couple from a few years ago) The buildings are unique too. My favorite to look at is the little cottage fudge house built in the 1930s. It's just got such a great vibe. Leashed friendly dogs are welcome!
Fun place for a day trip. My son and I enjoyed the rides and food! Must buy tickets or a wrist band to ride rides. Free parking, great staff. Love the atmosphere . Highly recommend a visit. We will be back
