Be "in the KNOE" for Opening Weekend 2017


We want our opening weekend visitors have all the info they need to have a great day! Check out some FAQs to help plan your visit!

Q: What time will you begin stamping hands?
A: Our wonderful handstamp team will be ready to greet you no later than 10:30 a.m.!

Q: If we get our hands stamped at 10:30 a.m., what can we do before the rides open?
A: Breakfast at International Food Court is a great way to fuel up for a day of fun. While you're in that area of the park, be sure to say hello to our resident bald eagles, Henry and Hattie!

Q: What time do the rides begin operation?
A: Rides open at noon on both April 29 and April 30. What will be your first ride?

Q: Will you have more handstamp queues this year?
A: We will have 19 handstamp queues! New for this year, there will be five queues near the Alamo where the Retro Active performance stage typically is. Though you might approach the new queues first, just remember that there are 14 more at the usual handstamp location. Please note that the five additional queues will only be available opening weekend.

Q: Why should we pre-purchase our pay-one-price plans, and how do we do so?
A: Pre-purchasing pay-one-price plans online should help speed up the process once you arrive at the front of the handstamp line (since there will be no cash or credit card transaction necessary). Just bring your barcode (printed or on your smart phone), and leave the rest to us. You can purchase plans ahead of time by clicking on "Opening Weekend BOGO" here.

Q: Will all rides be open?
A: We do our best to have every ride ready on opening day. However, sometimes it takes a little longer. At this time (April 20), the only ride we know for sure won't be open is Cub Cars. The reason? It's getting an all-new track to make room for our new ride, Over the Top. We hope to have Over the Top ready by late spring.

Q: What time does the park close?
A: Our advertised closing time is 6:00 p.m. However, we heard a rumor that Knoebels sometimes stays open a littttle later on opening day if there's a large crowd. Just sayin'!

Q: Is the BOGO deal offered on both Saturday, April 29, and Sunday, April 30?
A: You bet! And here's a little hint - Sunday is usually the less busy of the two days.

Q: How can I stay up-to-date on opening weekend info?
A: Follow our Facebook events for April 29 BOGO and April 30 BOGO for info!

Q: Are any sites available at Knoebels Park Campground and Lake Glory Campground?
A: YES! You can book by calling Knoebels Park Campground at (570) 672-9555, and Knoebels Lake Glory Campground at (570) 356-7392.
