thought the ticket prices were high, wait till you go to get food & drink. ($$$$) the "NO LINE JUMPING" means nothing. every ride my wife & i were waiting to get on, someone cut in line. when we complained about it the response was "well i didn't see it so there's nothing i can do about it." some employees...

I went to The dry park for about 7 hours and logged in 23 coaster rides. There were absolutely no lines, you could walk up to a coaster and be on in less than a minute. Food is expensive though so pack some stuff. The waterpark lines are long, about 10-30 minutes depending on the ride but hey its better... More

Dorney has come a long way from the mom and pop style amusement park. There are several thrilling roller coasters and plenty of other thrill rides, as well as the traditional ones, like the merry go round. There is also a nice kiddie area. The park is very spread out and there are hills, so it can be tiring for... More

Having a disastrous visit at Hurricane Harbor last week we were weary of what to expect at Dorney. We paid extra for preferred parking which we literally were less than 20 feet from the entrance. We have a toddler in our party and making trips to the car were very convenient. We arrived at the park at 10 sharp and... More

My husband and I had both grown up visiting the park. We hadn't been there in several years and were excited to share it with our four year old son. We pre-purchased our tickets and if we hadn't we would have left shortly after arriving to the parking lot. After paying 15.00 to park, we were sent to a field... More

Spent the entire day in both Dorney and Wildwater Kingdom. Water park was especially great on such a hot day. Went the last Sunday in July 2015, so heavy weekend crowds were expected. Would have wanted to leave the park much earlier if not for purchasing a FastPass, as regular lines were very long. I would like to mention one... More

My daughter, 15 year old grandson, his friend & I stayed at Willowbrook in Lake Harmony, PA for a week. Dorney Park is only a 40 minute ride from there, so we decided to try it. I ordered the tickets online before we left for vacation for the park, parking & for the souvenir cup (if you order online its... More

There so many good things about this park that I never wrote reviews but decided to. First off I love the fact they salute the flag in the morning before the gates open, the lines are not bad at all! The safty they have is outstanding for the rides. Great place

Greatest family water park - there is something for everyone - love that there is both water rides and dry rides. Love those slides, my daughter and husband love the thrill rides. Love this park - one of my favorites.

Great roller coasters for all ages. It can get very crowded when the busses from out of state arrive. Best time is early evening.
