Where to begin...the Haunt touts a frightful experience for all ages and groups. That is very true for a gaggle of 11 year olds. If you go with less than ten people you are forced in with larger groups ruining the majority of the "scary" attractions. The wait times are maddening to say the very least. Last attraction we entered... More

Dorney has some really fun rides for those of all ages... Just keep you personal items close. They don't allow you to take your purse/ backpack on the rides and there are LOADS of thieves in the park. There are stories every year about it. Lock belongings in a locker or leave them home!

My daughter and I drive over 2 hours and stay for 2 days. Opening night, stay over and go back to the park the next day. We've been attending opening night (Zombie Invasion) every year since 2011. 2011 & 2012 were very exciting. They have costume contest, brain eating contests, and one year had AMC's Walking Dead zombie's there. This... More

We went to Haunt last year and it was not scary at all. This year, the actors seemed to do a lot better in taking the guest by surprise and also knowing when to back off when the guest isn't scared. Must see Haunt attractions: The Haunted Mansion Hotel and GraveWalkers. The rollercoasters are going as well. We went opening... More

We used to come here every summer until it got to the point where it is today. The staff is rude and the clientele is even worse. Its always been really busy each time we have gone, but its seems to be almost been over capacity for the last couple years. The people that go there ruined it for us... More

I have been here numerous times and have never been disappointed. You get both the theme park and the water park at less than you would get most other theme parks alone for. The lines weren't ridiculous but there were some longer than others. Wildwater has a million different things to do and a large amount of slides to choose... More

Normally my visits to Dorney Park are fun-filled and go without incident. This year, however, was different. The park was unusually crowded the day I was there. I try to avoid Saturdays as much as possible since that is their busiest day. Week days are best as most of the patrons their are day care and camp children from the... More

We went on a Friday before Labor day about 10:30. The Park was relatively empty . Most of the roller coasters had no lines. We pretty much went through all the adult rides by 4:00pm. the only downside to the park was the Subway sandwich place. Unfortunately the bread wasn't fresh like it normally is. Otherwise , would of gave... More
