Knoebels Amusement Resort

391 Knoebels Blvd.
Elysburg , PA , United States http://www.knoebels.com/
(800) 487-4386

Pennsylvania has some of the most historic wooden roller coasters in the country; buried in a grove in the Susquehanna River Valley is perhaps the most beloved mid-century amusement park. At Knoebels, in Elysburg, the hilly Phoenix coaster dates from 1947, and the nearly finished Flying Turns is an open-chute toboggan. There are retro bumper cars and a creepy haunted house too. Knoebels is also notable for some of the most inventive theme-park food in America, including peanut butter and jelly milkshakes and deep-fried brownies. The resort’s log cabins are near the park’s Crystal Pool swim area (opened 1926) and the Twister, a re-creation of a lost wooden gem from Denver.
