I always thought it was pronounced with a silent k but I heard someone call it 'K-noebels' the other day.
Which is it?
It is one of those weird language things that this particular park and its namesakes are called "K"noebels.

Same as Knute Rockne - you can hear Ronald Reagan pronounce it that way in "Knute Rockne, All American."
(Here's the trailer: )
Of course, in certain films you can also hear Humphrey Bogart pronounce "Los Angeles" with a hard G, almost like "Los Angles." I don't recommend doing that.
Definitely pronounce with a capital K.
I always wondered why people look at me funny when I pronounce it with a lowercase k.
Because it's a proper name, silly!
Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.
