Day 4: Knoebels and Dorney


If you are a fan of amusement parks or carousels, Knoebels has a few things of special interest to you. They have a carousel museum, a Knoebels museum, and a collection of attractions and fixtures from many historic parks. It’s worth a trip for all that alone.

This is Leanna Muscato, our tour guide for the day! The history of Knoebels and carousels was fascinating!!

We conquered the very well done haunted house. Even we jumped a few times!

Of course they have two great coasters. First was the Twister, a replica of Mr. Twister from Elitch Gardens in Colorado.

Then there is the Phoenix… More amazing airtime, just a super fun coaster!

One of the greatest highlights for me was getting to reach for the brass ring on their carousel! Knoebels is one of only two parks that actually let you do it.

And then there’s Dorney Park! Many (including us!) said we couldn’t make it to both parks in one day, but we did!

We had a little rain, but that didn’t stop us. Here is Steel Force with a cloudy backdrop.

When all was said and done, we spent 1 hour and 59 minutes at Dorney and rode 7 coasters (Steel Force and Talon twice). It was a good day!

Next up: Hersheypark!!
