Watching this footage we recently saw on the Defunct Nostalgic Amusement Parks page reminds us of the historical value of our very own Flying Turns!

The calm after the snow storm. We thought we'd give you a unique view of Phoenix blanketed with two feet of snow!
Update from Elysburg: We have nearly 23 inches of snow at Knoebels! Oh, and it's still snowing.
Kozmo's snowed in, so Dick Knoebel sent these pictures! The snow is still coming down like crazy!
Hello, friends! Chances are, you'll have a difficult time getting in touch with us tomorrow if you try calling.

Stay safe!

A nice picture coming from Knoebels Three Ponds Golf Club. Though, we're sure our golfers would rather see the snow gone!
50 days until our April 29 opening day!

It's almost time to put the park back together, so winter better scram soon (we heard there's snow in the forecast early next week)!
This certainly isn't the kind of post you see every day. But, we thought some of you would be pretty happy about this. We completely leveled the restroom closest to the Giant Wheel and are in the process of rebuilding it with modern amenities. Many off-season upgrades are done in response to visitor feedback (like this project), and/or to ensure Knoebels facilities are around for years to come!
We usually do countdowns to Knoebels Opening Day. However, we know there's a lot more you're looking forward to at Knoebels this spring. So, we included your favorite events!
