The local park has been voted the top spot for families since 1999.

In other categories:

The Phoenix roller coaster was voted "Favorite Wooden Coaster" by group members for the second time in three years.

Knoebels tied for "Favorite Traditional Park" with Kennywood, which is located near Pittsburgh.

The park tied for second in the "Most Beautiful Park" category; a park in the Netherlands was also voted second. The top choice was Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, Va.
