Beat the Heat at Knoebels!

Find yourself visiting Knoebels on a hot summer day? No worries! Here are some ways to beat the heat!


Knoebels Water
The first topic on this list HAS to be H2O! The most important thing to remember on a hot day at Knoebels, is that you need to stay hydrated! There's no doubt that our First Aid team is pleasant and knowledgeable, but they'd much rather you have fun in the park than visit them! Water fountains can be found throughout the park (ask a friendly team member for the closest one), or water is available for purchase for $2.50 per bottle. Don't like either of those options? You're welcome to bring your own!


Gift Shops
During every visit to Knoebels, you should make it a point to check out the cool merchandise in our unique gift shops! On a hot day, the fact that all indoor gift shops are air conditioned makes it an absolute must. We're confident you'll find everything "Knoebels" that you've ever wanted... And, you'll most likely also find things you never knew you needed!

Crystal Pool & Splashtastic Rides

Crystal Pool
While visiting Knoebels, don't forget about our 900,000 gallon Crystal Pool filled with refreshing mountain stream water! The pool area includes waterslides, diving boards, climbing nets, a kiddie play area, and its own refreshment stand!

When it comes to cooling off in the park, there are always two Knoebels rides that immediately come to mind. All you have to do is decide if you want to be drenched from head to toe, or enjoy a refreshing splash. Decisions, decisions! Ok, fine... We won't make you choose one or the other. Here's a better idea: Start off with the Giant Flume, then get Sklooosh'd!

Alamo Restaurant & Sweet Treats


Knoebels regularly receives the honors of "Best Amusement Park Food" in the world... YUM! Alamo Restaurant is part of the reason for that, and a hot day is the perfect excuse to enjoy this full-service dining (and the AC that comes along with it).

We know some visitors like to stay on-the-go at Knoebels. So, if you don't want to stop for lunch or dinner, make sure you take a break in the shade and enjoy a cool treat (snow cone, soft ice cream, frozen yogurt, hard ice cream, cheesecake - yes, we have cheesecake... on a stick, frozen apple cider, fresh squeezed or frozen lemonade, frozen iced tea... you get the point!).

Here's another air conditioned option that you might not know about - Located next to the park/campground at Knoebels Three Ponds Golf Club is the completely renovated Nickle Plate Bar & Grill! Check it out for some great food AND drinks!

COOL Attractions

Lazer Maze

We have 60+ rides to enjoy, so we understand how our attractions might get overlooked at times. There are two that you definitely won't want to miss on a hot day!

XD Theater: If you enjoy 3D movies, then you’ll love our 4D motion ride experience in Roaring Creek Saloon! You have the opportunity to interact with four different movies! See, hear and feel the action as you are immersed in new and exciting worlds!

Lazer Command: Test your skills and stealth against your friends with our indoor laser tag game! Play the role of secret agent as you navigate through this dark neon adventure and stay on your toes as you navigate the obstacles (check out a video below)! When you're done with that, check out our our ALL NEW Lazer Maze challenge! Using agility, quick thinking, and speed, players avoid a field of laser beams to engage mission objectives. Or, try the Beam Buster mode and break as many laser beams as possible!

A Reminder About Our Four-Legged Friends...
We understand that dogs are an important part of the family, which is why we're a dog-friendly amusement park. However, it's important to remember that they didn't put on their favorite pair of sneakers before they made their way to Knoebels. In other words, their paws are directly in contact with the ground, which can be MUCH hotter than the hot air temperature. Be sure to protect your pup's paws, and avoid prolonged exposure to hot temperatures. By the way - Knoebels provides doggie water stations at select locations in the park, so your pup can stay hydrated, too!
