I'm a newbie poster here, but have been browsing the forums for years...I figured I'd add onto this post since I'm visiting Knoebels on Tuesday, July 26th. Does anyone know of any local, current discounts? Any tips would be appreciated, as it's my first visit there!
Since Knoebel's has only tickets or handstamps and no gated admission, there really aren't any discount coupons to be found anywhere. There are some good in park deals though.
Handstamps come in several types-- with and without the coaster options, and also for riders less than 48" tall again with or without the coaster option. There are a few rides that aren't included in any handstamp option, the Sky Ride, Haunted Mansion, and a few more I believe. You can find out all the prices and options on the park website.
Also, on weekdays, you can get a discount on ride tickets at any of the booths found throughout the park. A $5 dollar book is $4.50, and a $10 dollar book is $9.00. Knoebels tickets are good forever, so if you happen to have a few leftovers, save them for the next trip, even if it's 5 years down the road.
I've seen signs at the booths advertising special discounts when you buy $100 or more worth of tickets, but I haven't checked out what that might be.
As far as going through the park, there really are no major landscaped areas or themed areas, and not even a midway in the classic sense. The "original" entrance stands near the carousel, but a lot has been built outside of that over the years, so you pass quite a few rides, etc. before you ever get to it.
There are a few "major" paths that many of the pedestrians use, but you can pretty much walk around, between, or beside any ride or attraction to get somewhere else, particularly in the older section of the park. I suppose this bothers some people here, but I never give it a second thought.
Hope both of you enjoy your trips. I'm betting you will.
buy this bread and you will get 3.00$ off Handstamps. Or iff you of went up last Wensday and it was 1.00$ an hour for all rides for my local radio station T-102! THey ghay out free things to do that it was cool It was T-102 Day! But anyways Start from the back anfd Work your way to the Front and Get ICE CREAM before you leave and Funnel Cake!
Buy Wholesome bread, get $3 off admission. Otherwise pay full price because it is definately worth it. Whatever you do I am sure you will have a great time, and never forget your visit. Also Stoney Gables has the BEST fudge I have ever had, and not to mention the rest of the food! Just take your time, relax, and enjoy, enjoy!
* Note - The Wholesome bread is going to cost you almost the $3 you save, so just invest the extra money into the park.

From Elysburg? There's not much of a "city center" as its a VERY small town but I'd say its about 2-3 miles from the main part of town. The closest "big" city with a good hotel selection is Danville, about 15 miles away. There's a Hampton, Red Roof, Pine Barn Inn [excellent!] and others.
But seriously...you should at least consider the Glosser just down the road from the park.
Yeah, gator. Florida beat us to all the good names :) Off to the monastery with you!
In the time it takes to find and buy a loaf of bread, you could probably get in 3 rides on Phoenix, especially on a weekday. Plus you don't have to worry about what to do with a loaf of bread.
In the nearly 40 years I've been going to Knoebels, I have never gone to Fascination. I guess I haven't been fascinated enough. Although I used to get bummed because I could never have a birthday party under that big cake pavilion. (Damn fall birthdays)
Carouseller, if you prefer staying in Hamptons, your best bet is probably the one in Danville, since it is the closest one to the park. Esp. if you're traveling on I-80 to get there.
