Knoebles Amusement Resort

This weekend was one of the funnest I have had in many. They really do just keep getting better and better. Our Airstream has become a great excuse to go out and have fun. At Knoebles we did just that. This is one of those good old fashion parks. No modern steel coasters here, just wooden ones. It is situated in a valley with lots of trees and you just walk in. No parking fee, no admission, just buy a book of tickets and hit the rides.

Most of these pictures just speak for themselves. The park is one of those old fashion places that force a good time out of you.

The fact that these five kids laughed so much was worth every penny in gas it took to get there.

The kids just got to be kids...



Even the big kids...

All kids love to ring the fire bell. This was Halle's first ride ever. She didn't know what to make of it except when it was over she cried to go again.

There was a live steam engine taking us on a ride through the park.

We rode the bigger train in the dark. It makes a long loop through the whole park and runs by the campground. The trailers were all lit up and it was very picturesque. We hope that next time we come we will plan a little a head and be able to camp at the park. You just walk over a covered bridge and there you are in the park.

Thank you again for the big surprise. And Beth, thank you for being spontanious.

No Don, I had no idea. sorry we did not come over to the Delaware Water Gap, but I thought you needed some one on one with your boy.

You folks on the east coast have TOO much fun. Come out to the midwest and be bored with us sometime!

Actually...we aren't too bad, just need more people our age and more kids Collin's age.

Frank,
I want to see the photos of your on the "BIG" coasters. Rob tells me you cried like a little girl. :-)

Steve, Rob has the photos of the big coaster and the log plume. He promised me that he would scan it so I could post it. The photos will tell the truth.

Frank, now that the kids are back in school, I'm going to be able to put extra hours in on my trailer. I have another Airstream goal: To meet you at that amusement park next summer and make you puke on the Tilt-A-Whirl. Rob can ride with us, too, so I can hear him scream like a girl.
