Most people don't know about it so it really makes the ops happy I would certainly recommend.
I love that, and I wish I'd have known on my last visit!
Took the kids and met the NY based parents on the 3rd and 4th. Crowds were rather light on the 3rd and heavier on the 4th although the picnic areas and pool had the bulk of the people. Two full days and everyone still left without having ridden or eaten something they planned on checking off their list. Finally played Fascination and was hooked. Finally made it to the pool and, even though it was packed, it was a good cool off- and of course an efficient process.
Lifeguards had to pull a guy out after going off the high dive. Kudos.
Everything was great. The open admission worked out perfectly for the grandparents. Dad rode everything he wanted with the free retired military coupon book. The only thing close to a negative was on my second ride on the Fliers I was told to keep the snapping under control. Simultaneously proud and embarrassed.
The Super 8 in Danville was another story. If you have booked there- cancel. Filthy carpets and dirty sheets and towels. Outlets and AC didn't work. The "Super Start Breakfast" was explained as an "economy breakfast and not a continental breakfast" by the front desk. No beverages. (My eye doctor and car wash have coffee.) Cereal, oatmeal, apples, bread for the toaster. Had to go to McDonalds for breakfast and returned to find a guy "cleaning" our room bypassing the do not disturb sign.
Everything on that side on the intersection is boarded up. I guess this place will be next. Maybe try the Best Western across the street. Trip Advisor reviews fell off in April. I never looked.
Meister Brau just wants a path from CC to SM at SFA, meal plan burrito, some shade, and a restroom back there.

Physical wrote:Then there's who we were referring to as the Snap Nazi. Large dude, bowling pin shaped, bald, with a hat. He was a real jerk. Turning down every single cycle even without snapping, the one ride I had, I really ticked him off. He turned 'em down after about 20 seconds, and I continued to snap them for a solid minute. Eventually he turned it all the way off, and while it was freewheeling around, pointed at me and yelled "YOU! LET GO OF YOUR RUDDER."
Once I did he proceeded to run it at about a quarter speed the rest of the time. The excuse he gave me and a few other people, "I let you guys snap 'em but I slow it down if you're getting out of control." What a bunch of bull, if you can snap 'em you're not out of control. </end rant>
Not sure if this is of interest to anyone? However, the Snap Nazi quit his job at Knoebels about 2 weeks ago.
- I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way - I'm old, but that's OK. I've been to tons of now-defunct parks <3 - I stopped "counting" coasters at 1000, but chances are that I've ridden more than most
