Oh like you didn't know a photo of Knoebel's pierogis would cause people to lose their sh*t. :lol:

We rarely ever eat in parks and when we do we usually regret it. Knoebels on the other hand... We ate our usual healthy lunch, but I'll be damned if we didn't sample as much as possible in Knoebels for dinner. Pierogi's kicked off our food binge for the night.

Thanks for the suggestions, I think I'm going as soon as the park opens and I'm probably staying a full day there, since it's my first time, probably gonna ride everything cause I'm buying the wood coasters + all other rides (wristband?). I'll be sure to try the food :lol: , seems like it's super good from all the reviews of it. All this week is supposed to rain so I hope it isn't bad (or doesn't rain at all, the weather app on iPhones can change up until the day of haha). I'll be sure to post a TR as I'm going to Waldameer also this week. (:

Bill, your facial expression in that picture is one of pure, unbridled joy. I wear a similar one at Knoebels, especially when I'm eating those pierogis.

God, I need to get back to Elysburg.

That's my expression when eating the potato cakes -- those are my go-to snack anytime I visit the park. As much as I enjoy the pierogies at Knoebels, when you have a Ukrainian grandma who's been cooking them for over half a century, it's impossible to put any on a pedestal above hers. <3

You won’t be able to ride everything. There’s simply too much for 1 day. (Was there 15 hours yesterday and tho we rode a LOT there was plenty to still do. So plan a 2nd trip). That said anything you do ride you’ll love

Adding to recommended not to miss: cosmotron (indoor metal himalaya) and two rides on train. Day and night. Completely different ride thru the woods at night

It's not that big, but there's a lot in it, and it's kind of easy to get disoriented. I was only there a for three or four hours and hit everything I wanted to ride multiple times (Phoenix, Twister, Flying Turns, Haunted Mansion, Black Diamond), but I still skimped on a lot of what others here rave about. One ride that I don't think has been mentioned is Satellite — a rickety dive bomber-style ride. I loved that thing, in part because of how old-school it was.

Satellite sucks but I love that it exists, mainly because it absolutely shouldn't. :lol:
