  1. Local here. Haven’t stayed, but Pine Barn is very nice (also a great restaurant). Keep in mind that it’s right in front of a fairly large hospital so there may be some traffic with employees coming and going.
  2. I live 15 minutes from the park...haven’t seen any flood watches or anything of the sort. We haven’t had much rain recently. I just saw on accuweather that there was a flood advisory in Elysburg. But I'm guessing an inch of rain isn't going to shut down Knoebels for a week. Should be fine. Like I said, we haven’t had much rain before today so the water levels are fairly low. The Susquehanna is projected to peak at like 8 feet in Bloomsburg which is 10 feet below flood level.

  4. First and foremost, this expansion looks dope. I’m definitely in the “the current entrance is cool and quaint but it doesn’t work for a park this large” group. Another interesting thing for me as a local, and something that’s become increasingly interesting over the years, is the Hershey/Dorney dichotomy. In the late 90’s I would say they were fairly similar in stature; you could even give Dorney the edge because Hershey didn’t have a waterpark at the time, but it’s crazy to see the different routes each has taken. Hershey has emerged into a destination park with a roller coaster collec
  5. I’ll still grab one just to have it, but when technological advancements have enabled you to offer the same thing in an app, complete with ride wait times and GPS that can give you the quickest route to whichever ride you want, it’s hard not to think that they’re obsolete.
  6. I think it’s pretty dope. It reminds me a little bit of the town in the movie Big Fish that the main character stumbles upon.
  7. I live in Bloomsburg. Thankfully the rain has stopped and it looks like the river is going to crest before flood level, which is a huge relief. The ‘11 flood pretty much destroyed 25% of town, last thing we need is another.
  8. We haven’t gotten this much rain in the area since the ‘11 flood, but thankfully this doesn’t appear to be as bad...just a little water in my basement. Some local posted a video on Facebook of staff loading all of the carousel horses/carriages onto trucks a few days ago, so if nothing else the semi-regular floods have made Knoebel’s pros in how to prepare and limit damage in whatever ways they can.
  9. Kinda surprised myself. Great America could’ve done some solid business with a Cubs-themed ride after they won the World Series.
  10. I’ve never hate-ridden a roller coaster before so I’d like to thank Kennywood and the Steelers for opening up that window of opportunity for me. Keeping it 100 though, it’s a brilliant marketing decision. The Steelers are basically deities in every area of Pennsylvania other than Philly and its suburbs, so I’m sure people will flock to this area.
  11. Inverted: Talon, Great Bear, Raptor, Montu, Alpengeist, Batman: The Ride (SFGAdv) Sit down: Kumba, Incredible Hulk Hyper: Nitro, Apollo’s Chariot Floorless: Bizarro, Hydra, Dominator Stand-up: Mantis Wing: Wild Eagle Flying: Superman: Ultimate Flight (SFGAdv) Could’ve swore I had been on more but 16 isn’t terrible.
  12. They have deals for people staying at New York New York, IIRC it was like $2 cheaper and it was BOGO tickets.
  13. Maybe I’m a masochist of some sort, but I rode it last January and it...actually wasn’t terrible. A middle of the road coaster, sure, but it wasn’t the torture machine that I was expecting it to be. Actually heading back out to Vegas on 2/8 so I’ll have to check this out.
