Fun Place To Go

I alway enjoy going to Dorney Park and riding the rides, but don't go to Wild Water Kingdom. It is dirty and gross, and way to crowded. Go to Dorney, but not Wild Water Kingdom.

Our favorite roller coaster here is Talon, it is a good invert with lots of floater airtime. We also liked the waterpark, our favorite slide is The Constrictor, the reason why is because this is the closest we get to a funnel slide. Unlike the other slides, it is actually an element slide.

Love coming here! I remember back to when it was a family owned business, there were more trees for shade which appear to have been removed. Expensive food as expected in theme parks, but admittance price is two parks for the price of one.

Folllowing the Haunt Tour 2016 with Mr Haunt on the Haunt Haunters App, went with a Large group of Friends and Families. We enjoyed all of the Rides all day then all of the Haunted Attractions at night which were excellent. Considering how much some of these Haunted Attractions cost outside of a theme park, you cannot come close to... More

Decided to visit Dorney Park for The Haunt for my husband's 30th birthday. We spent the whole day in the park enjoying the rides ( we mainly stuck to the thrill rides). Steel Force in my opinion is one of the best coasters I have been on. At night we enjoyed The Haunt. The details in the haunted houses were... More

This is a fun park that actually can be totally completed in a day. Go on a good day. It's cool and if you're with fun and great people it can be a lot of fun. Some rides are better than others and the food is obviously overpriced, but if you're with the right people it's fun.

Went with the wife and kids, we had a blast, the park was clean and employees were helpful. If you can go in the middle of the week in the afternoon it'll save your sanity

Fun for half day with young children, unless you go to the water park also, then you could spend all day. The kids like it, not enough for a season pass though.
