kno5 700x465 K nobles Carousel  Technology interesting History Art

Knoebels has two carousels: one small merry-go-round in Kiddieland (added in 1976) which was built by Stein & Goldstein in 1912; and the Grand Carousel, a 1913 carousel built by Kremer Carousel Works in Brooklyn, with a frame by Charles I. D. Looff, (1852-1918), and 63 hand-carved horses by Charles Carmel (1869-1931). It was purchased on January 26, 1942 from Riverside Park in Piscataway, New Jersey for $4,000 (equal to $57,735 today) and relocated to Knoebels. Today, the Knoebels Grand Carousel is now one of the largest carousels in the world, with 63 horses and 3 chariots. It is one of the few carousels remaining with a working ring dispenser, allowing riders on the outside row of horses to reach out and grab steel rings as they pass. The rider who grabs the brass ring receives the cost of the ride in tickets, making the ride free. Three band, or fairground organs provide music for the riders, with the largest one built in Germany in 1888 by Frati and Co, and operating at Knoebels since the year it opened in 1926, 87 years ago. The smallest one is a replica built in 1995 by Gebruder Bruder Co. In the 1920s, the larger organ was converted to artisan roles.

One of the best parts about Knoebel’s is not numerious thrilling rides, like Universal or Six flags, but the fact that it is deeply rooted in history. The family has went out of their way to obtain extremely old rides, & restore them. When such rides can not be obtained, they build them in homage & sometimes provide the only such example in the world, such as the Flying turns trackless “coaster”.

OF course, the Phenox is perhaps the most thrilling coaster in the world. You spend an amazing portion of it out of your seat….

Knoebels Amusement Resort is a family-owned and -operated amusement park, picnic grove, and campground in Elysburg, Pennsylvania. It is and has been America’s largest free admission park for 87 years of operation. Opened in 1926, the park has more than 60 rides, free admission, two wooden roller coasters, a 1913 carousel, and a haunted house dark ride that was featured on the Discovery Channel. The park and its rides have won awards from organizations such as Amusement Today, American Coaster Enthusiasts, and The International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions. In 2014, Travel Channel rated Knoebels number 2 out of their Top 10 Family Friendly Amusement Parks in the country.[1]

Knoebels won the Amusement Today Golden Ticket Award for best amusement park food for 14 consecutive years from 1998 until 2011, but dropped to 2nd place in 2012, narrowly losing to Dollywood,[2] but in 2013, tied for 1st with Dollywood.

Members of these United States armed services get a free ride-band, and dependents get 10 dollars off.

coke freeplay sucks ass 700x933 Coke Freeplay Machine Technology Food

I’ve grown to hate these machines. Normally there’s a long line, drinks are constantly in different places, the touch screen barely works or there’s a delay, some of the soda is out. And if you need ice to go get tea instead? nope, you need to stand in line with everyone else to get ice.
