ELYSBURG — A sign of summer in our area is almost here: Knoebels Amusement Resort opens this weekend in Northumberland County.
Knoebels was a beehive of activity Thursday as workers got the park ready for opening weekend.
Knoebels opens this weekend and spokesperson Joe Muscato says there is still a lot to do.
Employees tested rides and washed every inch of the amusement park.
“Every bench, every ride, every wall of every building, so we’re getting everything all shined up,” Muscato said.
Most of the park’s 60 rides will be open this weekend, including the water rides, the Phoenix and all the rest.
It’s pretty safe to say the highlight of 2014 is going to be the ride that’s been about seven and half years in the making and Knoebels says it’s the only one like it in the world: The Flying Turns.
