I purchased tickets to attend the park on Friday, when only hours later I realized that I would not be able to attend due to prior obligations. I live at the opposite end of the state about six hours away. I made a call yesterday and today in hopes to speak to a manger about possibly getting a refund. Both... More

Visited the park yesterday. Just did the rides and not the watermark. Last time I was there was 4 years ago. Not much has changed unfortunately. They added a new roller coaster which wasn't open, a free fall ride that looked like something from the 80s and an animatronics Dinosaur exhibit which is at all the Cedar Fair parks. Parking... More

Great time, the menu is just overpriced. Pack a lunch if you are not ready to $50 for a family of three to eat hamburgers.

Visited on 8-28-14. The park is short staffed. Management did not have enough staff to open a number of large attractions (wave pool, for example); other attractions were also closed. Management did not have enough staff to remove a filthy poop filled diaper from water at one of the attractions in the park, which represents a significant health hazard to... More

I visited twice when the crowds were very light and only focused on the coasters and flat rides and did not enter the crowded waterpark. I hardly waited in line for any of the rides and on my second visit I waited for the front row on every coaster and even those waits were short. I got over 20 rides... More

We have been going to different adventure parks as the kids get older. Sesame Street was great at first but they'd kind of outgrown it. Dutch Wonderland was also wonderful but my eldest longed for more thrills. I think this park was a happy medium for my youngest son who does not yet want the thrills and my eldest who... More

We love going to Downey year after year. There's something for everyone at this park. Loved the coasters and the water park. However in this trip my kids got sick with coxsakie virus from the dirty water. I recall going to the big pool and smelling pee all over. It was a big disappointment since we have never had a...

The review below was from July 2014. A rep from Dorney reached out to me in hopes that I would give them a second chance. It was another insult. Nothing was ever officially offered, I'm thinking at most free park tickets. Big deal! It would cost me another $500 in travel and hotel expenses for another day at that horrible... More

We went to Dorney yesterday. There were "+" 's and some outstanding "-" 's. For the + lines were short due to some school's being open and it was mid week. On the down side help was few and far between. When you did fine someone it seemed it was a bother to answer the question or they had NO... More

Let's get the good out of the way first. We saved money by buying tickets in advance and due to the park being quiet we barely had a wait all day to talk of. No problem riding the front and back of coasters, whatever you wanted the lines were short enough to sit where you pleased. Hydra and Talon were... More
