On the way to Knoebels

Sunday, April 7, 2002 1:32 PM
Hi this summer Im heading up to my first trip to Knoebels. I wanted to know what parks are near Knoebels? Is kennywood anywhere near it? This is not a coaster trip and I cant take a big detour. Any help will be great.

Next time you want info about a park, just search RCDB. Just a friendly reminder...

[EDIT]- What I find interesting is that Hershey Park, Dorney Park, SFGAdv, SFAm, Astroland, and SFDL are all closer to Kneobels that Kennywood...:)

If they’re running, I’ll get ‘em. If they’re not, they should be.

No dont search rcdb! It shows how far away these parks are if you take a direct route. meaning a straight line from one point to another. Use yahoo maps and driving direction.

Therefore....search www.rcdb.com for the nearest parks and then use a directions program to determine which you want to go to.

And by the way, Kennywood is on the other side of the state. I highly recommend Hershey.

If the shoe fits, find another one.

It's about 4 hours from Kennywood to Knoebel's, to actually answer the original question. Depending on where you start out, Kennywood can indeed be "on the way" (or at least a worthwhile sidetrip)

Closest two other parks to Knobels are Hershey and Dorney. Both are nice parks. The choice might depend on which direction you are coming from. Be sure to ride car 1 row 3 yellow train on the Phoenix.

I'd recommend Dorney Park as a side trip when going to Knoebel's. It's probably the closest park and it has the best airtime steel coaster I've ever experienced in Steel Force. It's probably about 90 from Knoebel's in Allentown Pa.

Hershey and DutchWonderland are also not too far away.

Don't miss the Bumper Cars and Pizza at Knoebel's!

Take it easy,

The only problem with going to Knoebels is the GOCC Spring Fling the weekend of April 27th. Dorney is not open and Kennywood is not open on Sunday for my return trip to Columbus, Ohio.
