Saturday-Family Fun Day-Knoebel's
My family had the most wonderful time at Knoebel's Amusment Park. We love this place! Parking and admission are free and the coupon books for riding are very affordable and can be found many places at a discount.
My boys are still very young, so many of the rides that interest them are in the 50-75 cent range and the best thing is that they never have to wait more than a few minutes in line to ride any one ride.
In addition to the many stands containing all your favorite carnival/amusement park food, from corn dogs to funnel cakes, there is a full service restaurant on the premises called The Alamo. The menu had something for everyone including a very diverse children's menu. The food got a thumbs up from my boys, all of my boys, and that is saying something.
Evan's favorite ride by far is the Hand Car. I am sad to say that he is growing so fast that this might be his final season for this ride because it has a 48 inch height restriction and he is currently 46 inches tall. I have no pictures of this one because it was Ethan's first time riding and he didn't quite get the concept that it was up to him to keep it going.
Much to Evan's surprise, there was a an excavator to ride that actually worked. He was THRILLED!
Ethan really enjoyed all the rides but he really liked the Red Barron biplanes and the Firetrucks best.
He even got to drive his big brother around on the Panther Cars.
Elijah's first ride ever was the Umbrella Ride which I think he enjoyed along with the train ride.
All in all a very fun day! I highly recommend it.
