Any day at Knoebel's is a FUN day!

One of the things on our 'to do list' this summer was to go to Knoebel's amusement park. We didn't get there last year. It's about a 2 hour drive north; not too bad. The park doesn't charge admission, you pay for the rides you want, buy a booklet of tickets, or a wristband which includes all the rides. Well, most of them. This week Knoebel's had a BOGO (wristband) for Wednesday and Thursday. That works for us! We had a wonderful day at the park yesterday. 

Yes, Noah went too. He did fantastic! 

He hung out in the stroller most of the time. 

Scott, Paityn, and Ellen enjoying a ride!

Gina and her friend, Scott, behind them. 

Paityn getting swung around the corner on this ride. 

Dale and Ellen :) Ellen is always willing to let someone else drive.

Ellen and Christy are very brave!

That thing gets to swinging very high!!

It rained almost all the way to the park. While there, it was cloudy most of the day. A rain shower came early afternoon.... We took cover under a pavilion and ate snacks till it ended :)

Back to the rides after the rain....
There's Paityn! I also see Ellen. 

Scott, Paityn, and Ellen on the swings. 

Ellen loves the ski lift ride.... Thank goodness her dad is willing to go with her!!

Another spinning ride they all seem to enjoy :)

The train! This is my only ride. I don't do spinning, fast, high. Nope. 

Meandering through the woods...that's my speed :) I love this ride and it only cost me $2.50. 

Ellen was the caboose :)

We took time to eat. 
The food is not priced 'out of the park' at Knoebel's. 

Neat spot to eat!

My girl sees a camera and she has to pose!

Zoe loved this ride!! Aidan and Paityn soon joined her. By this time in the day the lines weren't long and they could get right back on. 

I didn't get a pic of the new roller coaster. I was holding Noah when some of our group went on it. It starts going up a very high track on your back then face forward on the way down. It does upside down way for me! (Remember, the train is my speed!)

At about 8:30 it started to rain again. 

We headed for a food pavilion to hang out. Paityn watches it rain. 

Zoe has a hot dog while waiting. 

Daddy, daughter dance?

It stopped raining and we headed out for a bit more fun. Scott, Paityn, and Ellen rode a roller coaster. 
Corey, Christy,  and their kids played some games and rode the carousel. 

We met up for one last cream!

Scott also enjoys a funnel cake! 

On the way out of the park....
One more game!

Ellen also decides to give it a try :)

By the generosity of the attendant, they all walked out of the park with a stuffed animal. 

Happy kids! 

Fun day! Full day! Late night! But....
One for the forever memory :)

This looks so fun. When I was 12 or so, I could ride the wild rides....not any longer. I would be happy to join you on the train ride, though. Happy Father's Day weekend to you all. xo

What a great place to go with the family! I think Sam and Jenn are doing their annual trip with her family on Monday. A lot of people up here go to an amusement park in Altoona called DelGrosso's.

Being with family, and at a place that is fun, makes the day a great one for sure! Glad you had fun even with the rain.
