Took the family up to Knoebels Grove amusement park in Elysburg, PA this weekend. For anyone who is unfamiliar, it is a family run amusement park and campground that has been around since the 1920's. Even though they continue to make improvements, it feels like you go back in time 30 or 40 years to when these parks were really family oriented. It's free to park and free admission. You pay per ride. A lot of the rides are unchanged since I was a kid.
Anyways, throughout the park they have historical type displays. One was this 1926 TT shown below. Not sure if it's a '26, but that's what the sign said. A lot of the T's you see on public display look like they're just meant to be static, but this one looks like it's still in use. There was also a Frick traction engine running a circular saw cutting up firewood for the campers that I decided to take a picture of.
Probably would be a fun place for a T tour!
I like the windshield view.
Its so nice to know places like that still exist!
The other day I heard that Disneyland raised their rates -just to get in.
I thought that it probably costs $20 now the way things are going,boy was I wrong. To Just get in with a family (of 4) went from $650 to $750 That does not include parking,food or the cost of a ride or getting there or a place to stay.
That buys a lot of T Parts
That to me is insane
Wow, that's a lot more than I would have thought. Still, gotta do Disney at least once when the kids are young.
I think it was around $25 bucks for an all day wristband for the kids that got them unlimited rides. I did a few pay as you go rides including the Haunted Mansion (traditional dark ride consistently ranked #1 in the country by enthusiasts), the Carousel (one of few that still has a working brass ring dispenser...when's the last time you saw one of those??) and the motor boats (no track!).
tim, i see your eyes are better now, tim
Looks like a cool place, fun even without kids.
Love those steam traction engine's.
Re Disney Land, the bigger the crowds the higher the cost (I just saw a report about this), it's called crowd control. I would say more but I will be civil.
I like the windshield view photo too. I'm sure that was completely accidental?
I took my tribe to Disneyland in Cal.in 1971 and 65 dollars bought 3 childrens and 2 adults ticket books which put you on almost all the rides,it took almost all day to use them up,I guess I'm getting old!!! Fritz
