One of the hardest parts about finding a suitable summer activity are the costs that tend to be involved. Traveling to an amusement park comes with a lot of incidental expenses, but thanks to Knoebels and their free parking/admittance policy, thrill seekers can save a bundle when it comes time to budget for their trip. Families that are willing to make the journey to Elysburg, Pennsylvania can spend their day eating and riding, at a fraction of the cost of most amusement parks!
