In this update, we visit Knoebels during the ongoing pandemic. We take you around to show you what is new, what is open and in general what you can expect from your park visit.

We were overall satisfied with the policies in place and how they were enforced. It was great to escape for a bit and enjoy what is one of the best amusement park resorts.

Knoebels is one of my favorite amusement parks. I was fortunate to get a chance to visit it again this year.

Reservations are encouraged, but not required for visiting. I went on a week day and the crowds were not too bad.

I love Knoebels potato cakes and thus am happy to report that the stand is indeed open this year. All in all, it felt like about 70% of the park was open which is not bad at all.

Here are the park's policies for this year. Standard fare in this pandemic. Personally happy to see mask usage required.

The lineup for wristbands is slightly more organized to keep people socially distanced.

For those familiar with the International Food Court, it sure looks different this year. American and International are open, but some specialties from the other closed windows are still offered.

Black Diamond was then next. Still so happy to see the Morey Piers ride not only saved, but refurbished and rethemed so well.
