Really bad customer service
kwi 2021
We had a great time up until the last ride at 4pm on the Looper. I have an autistic child. We got the disability pass from guest relations and for the entire day up until 4pm went smooth. My son and daughter were waiting patiently at the exit of the Looper attraction like we did at every other attraction today. My son was showing his disability armband to the ride employee that just walk right by ignoring him. The ride attendant just walked by. He was switched out with another ride attendant that also just walked by. This younger male went over to the ride operation station and just sat there while my kids looked at him and waved. He was looking right at us and didn’t respond. The ride was at a complete stop and was beginning to be loaded with the next group of riders. I told my kids to walk over to the young male and show the disability band. This is where it went off the rails. The ride operator by the name of Wayne J. proceeds to belittle my kids for walking toward the ride attendant. I walk over toward the attendant and he has words with me. I told him that we could not get anyone’s attention and that is why the kids walked over to the attendant. He proceeded to argue with me repeating his comment four times. I told him to relax and heard him the first time. Wayne J. acted like a complete idiot. He has no customer service what so ever. I can’t believe the way he talked to my children and myself. This is a special needs child with a disability band and this behavior was completely uncalled for. When I went to guest services no one really cared either when I explained what happened. Knoebels needs to step up customer service and guest relations.

Pay as you ride
cze 2020
This place is good for the family. Pay per ride and not just a one-time exorbitant fee. I see they have a campground. That looks really good to camp there. Nature yet modern. I hope that is what the Netherlands will be like for me. It isn't too big or specular in size but it is quiet, the food good price and natural. Where you can be with non-PA Dutch Pennsylvania. They aren't so rude or fat. Good Penn State students come from there. Not many jobs and Knoebels is the only min. wage.

Can't wait to go back, a slice of old Americana
sie 2020
Wow. My first time to Knoebels, half the park wasn't even able to open due to Covid, and I cannot wait to go back. We had such a great time. People were social distancing, everyone had a mask on (something Hershey couldn't do), and everyone except a couple of middle aged male ride ops on the coasters were incredibly nice. And speaking of, Phoenix and Twister were outstanding, they're taking such good care of their rides.

Family Memories are Born Here
sie 2020
Knoebels is a great place to make family memories. Ages can find something to do- from sitting in the shade to riding thrill rides.
One of my favorite rides is the wooden coaster- The Phoenix. It is a smooth ride, so much fun. If you want a great view of the park take a rider on the Skyway, it is a chair lift ride. When you get to the top you can see the whole park- great for pictures.
Besides all of the fun rides, Knoebels has some really great food!! Lots of choices that can please any one.
If you like to camp, you can enjoy the campgrounds, plus they do have cabins to rent.
A great place to visit!!

Great time
paź 2020 • Dla rodziny
Went on Sunday 10/18. Lines were not long. 5 kids got on about 15 rides from 12:00-5:00. Not much social distancing but everyone was wearing masks. Had a great time.

Awful lines, awful service, awful experience
paź 2020
Knoebels has been a huge and happy part of my life. I've loved visiting every year and now I get to share that joy with my kids....until this year. Our family camped at the campground this past weekend. On Saturday we decided to purchase all day ride wristbands because we planned to spend the entire day at the park having fun. What a nightmare it was. Knoebels did not limit the number of people at the park at all and did not follow any of the safety measures they tout that they are following. I have never seen the park anywhere near as crowded as it was and during a pandemic it was completely ridiculous. Knoebels continued to sell wristbands all day even though the lines for rides were over 2 hours long. It was impossible to get your money's worth with the wristbands even if you were willing to join the crowds to fight for space in the park. We decided to head back to our campsite with the hope that the crowd would lessen later in the day. Instead the crowd continued to grow. The following morning we were waiting at Guest Services to try to get some sort of compensation for our horrible experience. We requested a refund on the wristbands or even a partial refund, or a discount on a wristband for Sunday or even just a few ride tickets to make up for the fact that we wasted all that money on a wristband that couldn't be used due to them not having all rides open and requiring social distancing on the rides but then allowing everyone into the park so that there was nowhere for everyone to go. Suzanne K (head of guest services) was beyond rude and extremely flippant about the entire thing. She said nothing could be done because it was our choice to buy the wristbands. I explained we did that with the understanding that Knoebels was following COVID guidelines like they advertised. She insisted they did their part by putting up signs. She stated it isn't Knoebel's responsibility to make people follow the rules. I've never been treated so rudely or seen an establishment take such a flippant attitude towards customers. After this I will not be returning as my kids and I no longer view Knoebels as a fun place for a family to visit. It is definitely time for Knoebels to find a new Guest Services manager.

NOT A GOOD TIME TO VISIT
paź 2020
Not sure you can love Knoebels more than I do, it's my favorite trip of the year, (I compare it to Christmas) and I've done it in the fall for 20 years. But the experience this past Saturday, (10/10) was so, so different from the park I love. Despite the pandemic it was FAR MORE CROWDED than I've ever seen it, with no social distancing and no enforcement of wearing masks. Except for the hand sanitizing stations around the park there was literally no difference on the part of management than before the pandemic. In fact things were WORSE because with the limited number of seats on rides but no limits on capacity/distancing the ride lines were just a Covid trap. I traveled on vacation recently to a state with high numbers but I'm more worried about Knoevid than what I was exposed to on my other trip.

Like a crowded Summer weekend except for Covid -19
paź 2020
Yes, it was super crowded and no, there was no social distancing practiced by the attendees. I would say that there were greater than 95% of the people wearing some type of facial covering. The ride lines were long, as was the wait for food. This was supposed to be the weekend for the arts and crafts festival, which is shoulder to shoulder anyway. So, if you are complaining about the crowds, "What did you expect?" Nobody held a gun to your head and made you go! We drove 3.5 hours and stayed the weekend, going back on Sunday. I rode everything I wanted to, ate what I wanted and had a fun day. Wear your mask and sanitize your hands. Oh, and never buy a hand stamp when it's crowded. You won't get your monies worth. We spent $60 on tickets for 3 people.

Wow, a place everyone should visit, and often!
paź 2020
This place is a true gem! You don't find many places like this left in America, truly a magical and fun place. We visit every year, at least once, even this year with COVID I visited twice, once with my daughter and her boyfriend and then recently with entire family of 5. Free parking, free admission, free picnic tables etc. You can truly come here and enjoy the outdoors if that's all you want to do or ride some of the best classic amusement park rides in the world. The food is also very good, and for the most part affordable unlike most theme parks. Some of the things not to be missed are the Phoenix, Twister, and Flying Turns wood roller coasters. The log flume is an excellent vesion of this ride. Other not-to-be-missed unique attractions are the amazing Carosoul with a ring machine, the BEST bumper cars, the flying scooters, not to mention two of the best dark rides in the world, the Haunted Mansion and the Black Diamond. The newer Impluse roller coater is pretty good too. They als have tons of great kids rides, and so much more I'm not mentioning. During summer the have a huge pool, and a few water slides and they are not expensive. The campground is also nice and well run. A don't miss place I only gave it 4 stars, rather than 5, because on our most recent visit the park was too crowded for COVID with the park not enforcing social distancing like they should.

No social distancing required
paź 2020 • Dla rodziny
Very disappointed that covid guidelines were DEFINITELY not being followed by staff or visitors. It was my family's first time going there and that experience made us never want to return! They do not limit the number of people in the park, when you're standing in line there are 6 ft social distancing markers, but they aren't spaced so people can even follow them! You are standing in line with people on both sides of you! Very disappointed!!
