Our Police Department provides police service at Knoebels. We also respond to all medical calls at the park. In the seven years I have been the Chief of Police there have been no snake bite incidents investigated or reported. I find this park to be one of the cleanest and well maintained parks I have visited. I know if the owners where aware of any hazards in the park the problem would be taken care of immediately.

This rumor is all over even in millersburg, I was just at the park yesterday and asked every person who worked the rides we went on and they all said it was rumor and that was it. It did not happen they said.

I was looking for the same thing I was just told this morning off my sister that it was in the tea cups. I live 20 minutes from the park and I take the kids there and didn't hear of this happening. The park is always clean and I never heard of anything happening like this as far as a kid.

I too have heard about the snake bite killing a child while on a ride. PLEASE tell me this is not true! Does anyone have info? I live almost 3 hours away and many people have heard of this incident. I was planning on taking my son, but now I'm thinking twice.

I took my children to Knobels on the supposed day this happened. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary other than the lines being alot longer than I have ever seen them. This rumor pops up every few years or so. Snakes feel all the vibrations and I doubt that a snake would go towards sucha huge amount of vibration like that created by not only the rides, but the constant movement of everybody visiting the park.

Listen, you collection of geniuses, this is an urban legend common to many amusement areas. Go to www.snopes.com & search amusement park snakebite. You will find a story about Fast Food ball pits & snakes. Read to whole article to see a reference to amusement areas. Check the footnotes to see an article from 1991! about the rumor at Knoebels Groves.

I've been searching for this too after hearing about this incident from a family member. My family member knows someone who owns an amusement ride company 'Fun Time entertainment" which is how she heard of this incident. Because of the connection I somehow believe this may be true. I guess there is the possibility that it's not true, but I think there are many amusement park accidents that are just not published.

I heard this rumor just last night from a good friend of mine. I was actually at the park the evening this supposedly happened, but nothing seemed off. I believe it this truly happened it would be in the local newspapers.

This is what's frustrating about these kinds of stories, all of you knuckleheads want to believe them. There are all kinds of proof that it didn't happen but you keep spreading the story. CHECK WITH THE STATE - NO ONE HAS DIED FROM A SNAKEBITE IN PA IN DECADES!

I just heard this too (aug 7) like it happened yesterday - I hate to share stories until I read them myself. We have a place an hour from Knoebels and just saw 2 5' rattlers - so I was apt to believe it but still wanted to check. ...

I heard about this last night- I was told it happened in the Rocket ride.... I was also told everything is HUSH HUSH why I have no idea- but if this is true they should make everyone aware of this... I was there a month ago and arrived before they opened and I know for a fact the workers at the ride my children went on did not do any sort of checking the rides on the inside for anything..... Makes you think twice about going....

For Jen, you're wrong. Every ride is inspected inside and out every morning by a licensed mechanic. Just because it didn't happen in front of you doesn't mean it didn't happen. Why waste the effort, you people are too lazy to verify anything and too willing to believe any piece of hogwash thrown your way. I fear for America. It's increasingly a country to lazy, ill-informed buffoons.

It is plain to see- your just an idiot:):) And I don't beleive a certified mechanic walks around and inspects every ride every morning- My cousin worked there and it is a known fact that maybe they are suppose to do this- but they DONT and I know I did not see them do this and I was there 2 hrs. before they opened.......and maybe this country is going to sh**t because of people like you who think they know everything and know NOTHING......

Jen, You are a complete moron. Not only is the inspection preformed, paperwork is left at the ride to confirm this. YOU are what's wrong with this country. IF you have a cousin who worked there he/she is a LIAR and you are a dipsh*t. As a sidelight, learn to spell and take a course in grammar and puctuation.
