That funhouse mirror picture is great.

It's a score for Klaire. First she rides with Dad then she rides again with Mom.

I would say frog hopper, but she really isn't afraid to go on anything. She throws a fit when i go on a coaster she can't :(

Nicole's parents (I shall refuse to say in-laws and we'll leave it at that) got jealous we were taking Klaire to park after park. So they suggested we visit them in Harrisburg and go to Knoebels for the day. Well I am not one to pass on a park, let alone a visit to Knoebels so off we go.

Now I hate to admit it, but I'm very honest. I have never really explored Knoebels fully until now. I never rode the bumper cars till now thinking "well there just bumper cars". I could have never been more wrong in my life, they were just awesome. I also never rode the boats before either. It was a great day and everytime I visit Knoebels I get more impressed. I did not take many pictures, I just wanted to go and have some fun and not worry about snapping pictures all the time. Here's some that were taken:

We actually started the day on Black Diamond, but I took no pictures of it.

This is the other carousel, not the grand carousel and Nicole's mother.

Cars and Nicole's dad.

Another hopper.

My first ride on the boats.

Another new credit for Klaire and I.

Soon enough Miranda.

067.jpg
Nicole's mom gets sick on some rides from time to time, so I talked Klaire to taking her on the whip, but she did not get sick. It looked like she was fading fast, one more time around might have done it, darn.

070.jpg
Klaire does not like Ice cream, ??, but she loves some freeze-pops.

071.jpg
My first time on the bumper cars, just plain awesome. If you hit them right, it's just like a car wreck. Nicole wasn't smiling when we were done. :)

072.jpg
Fish game

073.jpg


An finally, I would never have known what a "BRONY" was till TPR. Thanks to that Stars Wars thread and Elissa's recent Facebook post. So I would have never known what this next picture was all about. I asked Nicole if she knew what it meant and she didn't till I told her. But man, WHY does it have to be in my state and why advertise it like this:
074.jpg
It says "BRONY" on the plate. Never got a good look at the person though, don't know if I wanted to or not though.

Knoebel's is awesome.

Bronies are not awesome.

Just seeing this post now, and I have to ask, on the second page with Klaire getting her credit, the boomerang behind her, was that the station for it?

I love donkeys more than me.

Cool to see that Knoebels keeps their "ancient" rides, the bumper cars look like being at least 50 years old.

Also always interesting to see how Moser Rides cornered the market with their kiddie towers.
