Hey guys, I just did Dorney, Hershey, and Great Adventure and since I'm doing a senior project, I am going to go to Knoebels to get some footage, pix, and rides. I was wondering if there was anywhere to get coupons. I am going tomorrow, Thursday, and hope the lines won't be long for Twister, Pheonix, Whirlwind, and Power Surge. Any tips or suggestions. The last time I was there was the month before Twister opened. Thanks *** Edited 7/7/2004 11:56:14 PM UTC by Willh51***

I can't help you with the coupons, but I wouldn't worry about lines for either Whirlwind or Power Surge. Since you're going on a weekday, the lines for the two wood coasters shouldn't be that bad either. Just make sure you get the wood coaster option (it costs a little bit more than the regular plan) if you plan on doing lots of re-rides.

Oh yeah, I remember the wood coaster thing from last time. Ill be doing that. Twister is just on the regular ticket isn't is? I can't wait to try that and revisit my favorite Woody...well before Lightning Racer this week and Coney Island Cyclone.

No. Twister and Phoenix are on the wooden coaster option
. ;) You can also purchase rides with individual tickets, but that can get costly if you reride (which I'd be suprised if you don't).

Knoebels offers $3 off a RAD pass on Holsem bread. I think Pepsi cans also have a discount of some sort.
Durring the week a long line may be 10 minutes with one train if that. I'm actually leaving for Knoebels in a few minutes for my Flyer, Bumper Car mayhem night (also known as the Snap and Crash bargin night)! :)

Yeah thanks! I realize that Twister is a WOOD Coaster. However, last time I went, I could have sworn it was on the regular ticket and the only upcharge was a PHOENIX option. It could be a bad memory, or maybe the wood coaster opinion now includes both and is under a different name. Doesn't really matter I guess... :)

You just told us the last time you went was the year before Twister opened... I'm confused?

There are other upcharge attractions maybe hes thining of, Haunted Mansion and also now Scenic Skyway. These are not included on any plans, if you get the basic + wooden coaster option, $29, then everything cept pool and those 2 attractions. Also check out Dowdraft as well as I see its not listed and its a pretty decent flat.

I can understand Sky Ride not being included, but why in the world isn't Haunted Mansion included?
Wednesday, July 7, 2004 7:23 PM
The Haunted Mansion is not included with the general admission options because they are trying to keep "destructive visitors" from vandalising (sp?) it. The cars are very easy to get out of and from what I've heard in the past people have gotten out during the ride and messed things up. They figure people won't want to pay the extra cash to ride it just to ruin it.

Sorry, I meant that I was there the year it opened but before it opened that season. I guess I should have put month before it opened. Anyways, I am going to try and find a Pepsi can to get that coupon.

Speaking of Knoebels, we live in the Hershey Area as we know is close to Harrisburg, PA. Today on the way home from work I hear a commercial for knoebels. I was pretty shocked. You dont usually hear much of knoebels on the radio and in the papers here. I almost wonder if its because of Hershey Park.
I guess this is pretty off the topic, but i was just surprised.

Also, as an FYI, the Haunted Mansion's price went up last year to I believe $2.

Well then I must be really special because they only charged me $1.20. :)
If you really want to know, individual prices for all the rides are listed on Knoebels website.

As Heatherw had said we are from the Hershey area. There is a radio station that have been giving away all day ride bands. This season is the most I have heard Knoebels advertised in our area in a long time.
I think its a good thing because that park deserves good attendance. Its one of the best parks in the region. I'd hope that the general population would hear Knoebels advertised, and spend a day of their Hershey vacation there.
