This is probably not the first place anyone will come looking for advice on a great day out for all the family, but if you’re ever in Pennsylvania with your loved ones, you won’t go wrong with Knoebels Amusement Resort in Elysburg.

There’s more to Knoebels than just rides and candyfloss. There’s a pool and a campsite. There’s a photobooth where you can dress up (no thongs) and have your picture taken in old-time vintage style.

Do you think that, under their shorts, they might have been wearing… thongs? If so – serves them right!
