I have been going to KNOEBEL'S for more than 50 years.....can't wait to have some grandchildren so I can take them there. Am I the only one (other than the Knoebel family) who can spell the name of the park?

You have got to be kidding! I finally got a chance to visit this "so called" amusement park. Needless to say, I was not impressed. It's more of a campground with rides. Not to mention, it's out in the middle of no where!
love this park

No, YOU have got to be kidding. It sounds like you have some issues. You can keep your overpriced, oversized, and overcrowded thrill-ride amusement parks. My vote goes to Knoebels. I've been on several roller coasters in several different parks over the years, and the Phoenix is still my hands-down favorite. Long live Knoebels!

Well Jewels, maybe you should try camping there then too... there is no better experience. When I ask my children what they want to do over the summer, the answer is always the same: Knoebel's.

Well a new year and a new dilemma.I Was all set to sign the park over to William Hershey when I found out he has been courting my lovely sweetie Suzy Q.As far as I am concerned he can have her but not my park.I WILL NO SOONER CLOSE THE PLACE AND MAKE IT A GAME PRESERVE THAN LET THAT SNEAKY CHOCALATE LOVER GET HIS HANDS ON MY PLACE.i AM NOW OFF TO aUSTRALIA FOR THE OSTRICH RACES,.

Wow sad sad day. I love your Hershey Park don't get me wrong, but there is something to the old Knobel feeling. I have a family of 6 and it is nice to camp and play. My heart is broke. Please keep the park the way it is. I have been going there for 36 years. Please don't take away the charm. That is the reason why Knobels is Knobels.

With the direction Hershey is currently headed, my opinion is, for Knoebels to go and attempt to buy out Hershey Park, and make changes thy the park needs.

Knoebels is the best thing that ever happened to central PA because it is cheaper and alot more pretty then hershey,knoebels still has a good amount of trees compared to hershey.If they ever sold knoebels there would be alot of pissed off people,which i would be one of them!!!

ive been going to Knoebels for 30 years now, and for the last 8 years all i've heard are rumors that hershey has purchased knoebels. It is NOT true. Hershey wants to get their grubby little paws on it and ruin it like they did dutch wonderland, it will never happen. It is a family owned park and will remain to be until the end of the world hits. As long as im not alive if and when they do sell it, im happy. 30 years and counting. I LOVE it there!!
