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.

It's odd to see Knoebels with so many stands and shops closed.

Still the home of record setting dispatches (just spaces between parties this year).

We hear the station sign has been finished since. Can't wait to see that on our next visit.

Didn't want to be that guy just sitting in his antique car waiting for the train to go by, but perhaps I should have?

Flying Turns doesn't look like it will open this year. Lots of work being done around the final brake run.
