^Now you tell me...

Although that'll never happen, anyway, since I only ride outside horses on the Grand Carousel.

I went to Knoebels in August 2017 (Favorite park of all time, by the way— I came in expecting a permanent fairground setup with some decent coasters and came out shocked) for around five hours, and I didn’t even visit Kiddieland with its extensive collection of rides or the Black Diamond area with the Mining Museum. Also, I am ashamed that I missed out on 3 sets of antique cars, as just two days post-Knoebels I started a love of antique cars after riding Blue Ridge Tollway at Kings Dominion. It’d be easy to spend an entire day at the park to be honest, and maybe check out the waterpark too, I know I would never be bored for a second.

^Plan to stay longer next time haha!

I can go to Knoebels for 3 days and still want more. THAT is how an amusement park should feel. You might want to check out PPP (Phoenix Phall Phunfest) around the first weekend of October. Some coaster/park people complain it's overcrowded, but I disagree as they open the whole park up for it nowadays. I'll usually get there on Thursday and leave Monday. Great time!

Or just go anytime and plan to spend a minimum of an entire open-close day. I have more fun on the skyride, skyslide and Satellite alone than I have at most "big" parks.

I can ride Skyride 3 times a day, easily. Almost everything needs about 3 rides a day. And that's not even getting to the food or just resting in the endless charm spots on the grounds. Or socializing if I'm there for PPP.

I've been to Knoebels probably a dozen times and while I can do the best of the best in a day, it's impossible to do everything. There's just so many amazing things about this park.

Plus I probably spend at least a third of my visit on Phoenix. :lol:

Went to opening day of the Florida State Fair last Thursday and found this little gem. Reminded me of Knoebels for some reason. Yeah, can't wait to get back to Knoebels, but this will tide me over during their off season.

^^^Heck the next time I get to Knoebels I might just have to dedicate a day to playing Fascination... That is addictive.

Can confirm, Fascination is way too much fun.

The only problem is figuring out what to get with the tickets...
