Knoebel's reopened today after cleaning up. This is what they posted on their Facebook page yesterday (pointing towards today):

Our team’s hard work will have you asking, “#WhatFlood?” When we said earlier that 90% of the park would open on time tomorrow, we were being a little conservative. Let’s add another 6.5% to that! Here’s what might not open on time tomorrow:

Rides: Ball Crawl, Spanish Bambini (Italian Trapeze and Over the Top were closed prior to flood)

Food Stands: Totem Treats, Wharf

Games: Muffin Tins

Gift Shops: Some may have a late start, but all will eventually open

Crystal Pool will be closed for roughly one week.

There is no place in America (on Earth?!) that recovers as quickly from flooding of the magnitude Knoebel's suffers. Almost annually. When I visit there for PPP, I will be looking forward to the 2018 "flood height" sign that I am sure will be put up. Then again, this flood may not be worthy.

So this latest flood IS worthy of a flood height sign.
I saw the new sign posted somewhere out here in the interweb, but damned if I can find it right now. 2018 was the second lowest flood level listed, so not too bad.
