Nifty Little Stocking Stuffers

Saturday, December 3, 2005 1:23 AM
No, I'm not talking about anyone on this site. :)

There was an ad in our local newspaper this week advertising "Knoebels for Christmas." Most parks let you buy season passes or even a one-day pass as gifts, and Knoebels is offering All Day Handstamps in four varieties at 2005 prices (above and below 48", w/ and w/o the wood coaster option).

But what I think is really neat this year is that they're also offering ticket books for sale as well as Certificates for the Alamo restaurant. You can buy $5 or $10 books for $4.50 or $9.00.

I think they'd make great gifts for those little gift exchanges people get involved in around the "holidays." And also for people you don't like enough to spend more than 10 dollars on. :)

RGB, who celebrates Christmas, but respects those who celebrate other holidays at this time.

Actually Pottsville Republican, coastergurl. But you can order any of that stuff from the knoebels website too. I forgot to mention in my original post you can order by mail, website, calling or sending in the order form that was with the ad.

coasterqueenTRN's avatar RGB, did I mention I have a birthday coming up? (hint, hint).....LOL! Just kidding.

I was actually thinking of getting my little brother and his fiance some one-day passes as a wedding present to a theme park. My brother loves Cedar Point but I was thinking I should send them to either Knoebels or Holiday World (which they have never been to) or maybe just bring them to PPP and/or the HoliWood events. Maybe all three. ;-)

Luckily they don't read this site or I would be in trouble by now. lol.

And have I mentioned that I can smell the grain when they're brewing at Yuengling's?

Moosh, if I didn't live so close to Knoebels, how ever would I have gotten to see human Fascination machines? Besides, I couldn't have been there more than 8 times this season. :-P

Pickle on a stick all around for coasterqueen's birthday! :)

<Oops, I was wrong. It was 9 times.>

My wife's brother lives in Delaware and whenever my in-laws travel there, they always bring us back a case of Yuengling. Good stuff. Did I mention my in-laws were cool? :)

coasterqueenTRN's avatar They don't sell it in West Virginia, but luckily I visit PA quite often and *smuggle* a few cases back each time. :-)

coasterqueenTRN's avatar ^Too bad PA has some strange liquor laws. I still sometimes forget you can't buy beer in grocery and convenience stores. And if you just want a sixer you have to REALLY look for it, usually it's a pizza place or a local dive. You may as well just buy the case. It's overall cheaper.

Still, they have Yuengling and we don't. >:-(

NJ is the same about beer, you have to go to a liquor store or a bar.

I am now thinking of getting a couple books of tickets for friends for xmas :) Nice present for people who love Knoebels.


Watch the tram car please....

It's not that PA has strange liquor laws as much as a strong state employees union that has convinced the voters that selling liquor and beer like the other 49 states do would cause rampant alcoholism and all sorts of crime and anarchy. Like we don't already have that.

But anyway, I know of a few kids who are getting an all-day pass for next year, and some adults who are getting dinner at the Alamo.
