FWIW, prior to my visit to the park, I thought carousels were boring and stupid. I rode it begrudgingly, only because of the feedback from others, and I ended up riding it about six times during my visit. The brass ringy dingy ding-a-ling dings are addicting, and if you and Emily are competitive people, you'll want the bragging rights. I recommend at least one ride.

That's what Knoebels does best!

Your plan sounds good. The chairlift is something special, goes up the mountain and has great views of the Appalachians. It's beautiful. But yeah, walking around, taking your time, enjoying the place--that's what it's about. Stop in the museums for a bit, and make sure you also ride Black Diamond, the dark ride/coaster hybrid in the back corner of the park. It's weird and very fun.

Flyers don't do much for me and it's a little too much spinning for my tastes. My main concerns are Phoenix, Twister (x1), and Flying Turns. If I don't get to do Impulse, I won't be upset. Our main priority is not running around in a hurry.

How are crowds on Sundays?


I would add to your "MUST DO TO EXPERIENCE KNOEBEL'S" -- play at least 1 game of Fascination.

(and the Cheese on a Stick, the Perogies, and a shake from the Old Mill are my food must do's)

and just behind it is the Bald Eagle enclosure. . you can listen to a talk about them and watch them feed them.

Yeah, I went for that talk, because animal exhibits are irresistible, and the whole talk was basically "There are some eagles over there. Any questions?"

Yeah, eagles are always cool. Just wish the keepers, you know, knew something about them.

I think 8 hours should be plenty for what you wanna do at Knoebels. I'd highly recommend riding Twister at night if you can, not sure if the park is open past sunset or not. But it was running like a bat out of hell this past October and night rides were at the same level as Pheonix in my opinion. Also do the drop tower if you're into those, it's completely insane. Only downside is it'll make the ones at Hershey later in the week feel like a Frog Hopper.

Also just wanna make sure you know there's a free shuttle between the Hershey Lodge and the park. You might've already known that but figure it could come in handy if you were gonna be drinking all afternoon at the park.
