Lineup for Knoebels Hallo-Fun

Saturday, October 16, 2010 11:55 AM

This link lists all the attractions that will be open for Hallo-fun at Knoebels tonight and the next two Fridays and Saturdays. The number of rides they're opening has greatly expanded in the past 2-3 years.

New this year is a POP for $20.00, but the Haunted Mansion and Antique Cars aren't included in that price. Carrie, Raven-phile, and Tekwardo can attest to the awesomeness of the "Monkey Maze" while I unfortunately didn't have tickets at the time and had to miss out.

LOL. The Monkey Maze was one of the biggest WTF moments I've had in a long time. It really seemed like there should have been a lot more to it. You know, like fun house kinds of things. Instead, the stairs just lead to a second level with nothing.

Sure, there's mirrors on the wall and a slide, but I'd honestly rather just skip the 2nd level altogether.

Yeah, it was the lamest non-Seaside Sponge Bob walk-through ever!

I'm very interested in going back for 4 hours of night rides on Phoenix. $20 is a great deal. I've yet to visit the park post-PPP.

Just curious if anyone knows what the following are:
Kiddie Firetrucks $1.00
Cub Cars $1.00
Spider Swings $1.00

I can't think of any "kid" rides in the area of the scheduled rides. Are they bring these in for these special weekends like the Monkey Maze?

It's a real shame the bumper cars are on the opposite side of the park and can't be included in the condensed lineup.

For anyone who has gone to these special nights, how are the crowds considering the limited amount of rides? Would it even be worth the $20 or is it akin to Family Bargain Nights in the summer when it can be hard to even get your $8 POP's worth of riding in due to the big crowds?

The firetrucks are relocated from Kiddie Land-- they're located above the millstream. The cub cars are the kiddie go-carts located between fandango and the antique cars. I don't know what the spider swings are. Last year they put the firetrucks and ball crawl along with a straw bale maze in the area in front of Phoenix. They also had the helicopters there. I think they use every bench in the park to mark off the areas where you can travel from Phoenix back to the Haunted Mansion. :)

Matt, I think I easily spent $20 buying individual ride tickets last year. There are fewer people there than at PPP for sure, especially if the night is chilly. Phoenix is a one-two train wait most of the night. I had a solo Flyer ride last year. The wait for the antique cars is nothing like it is for PPP.

Rode the antiques on hangover day since the line was SO long again on PPP. Easy to see it must be amazing in full swing - the work KG puts in on the antiques and the train ride just KEEPS getting better every year. Awesomeness! :)

Gaotr, next time, get in line for the haunted cars at 9:59pm. It's only a 20-25 minute wait.

Sounds great Joe! I need to get back for an encore performance. I'll just ride the Phoenix all night long.

LOL, I think I typed that on my iPhone. Apple gets a lot right, but not the iPhone's spell checker.

I can relate. I once texted my boss "O'Keefe at lunch" instead of "I'm at lunch."

The Android spell-checker has the same types of quirks.

The lineup for Hallo-Fun looks great.

Yeah, sometimes the spell-checker in Swype amazes me. I've got it trained pretty well, but sometimes it surprises me.

I know I will forever be blacklisted from Kozmo's friend list but I couldn't help it!I guess Philadelphia sports teams and the Flying Turns have the same motto:"There is always next year!"
