    Knoebels is our favorite park and Phoenix is one of my all-time favorites. Did you know that Phoenix was originally built as The Rocket at Playland in San Antonio, TX and moved to PA in 1985 after that park closed and it was abandoned? That's the origin of its name and that's why the trains are painted orange and yellow (signifying the flames from which the Phoenix arose).

    DH doesn't ride coasters but he absolutely loves their bumper cars, train, haunted house and grand carousel - and their food, of course. Our only complaint is that it takes us about 4-1/2 hours to get there. We always go for opening weekend in April, several more times in the summer, and we'll be there the weekend of October 10 for the Phoenix Phall Phunfest. I can't wait!

    Yes, I did know that about the Phoenix! I really love the food at Knoebels, too. I've ridden both their merry-go-rounds several times. The bumper cards rule! I heard they were voted one of the best in the United States.

    Enjoy yourself at the Phunfest! Ride the Phoenix for me!
