      One of the best values in central Pennsylvania is a park out in the "back of beyond" called Knoebels Amusement Resort. It isn't easy to get to from the major roads and highways, but it is well worth the effort, and your GPS can find it for you. What makes this theme park different from its counterparts across the nation is that there is no parking fee. There is no admission fee. There is a free shuttle from the parking lot to the park. All the rides are by ticket purchase, and the most expensive ride in the park costs only $3.00. Located just outside of the town of Elysburg, Knoebels has some unique rides for all ages, including a skylift that takes you up a small mountain for a full view of the whole area. There is also a full-sized 18-hole golf course.

      If you go:
      Seasonal from May to mid-October. Camping, B&B, hotels and RV parks are nearby.
