I grew up going to this park since the early 80's before it was owned by Cedar Fair. Fond memories from childhood echo in my mind every time I walk through the park and ride some of the same rides I went on as a kid. :). The music express is a must-ride! Yeah it's pretty tame but it wouldn't... More

Visited this park with a Friend and was absolutely amazed. Even with the crowds, we had a good Time. I recommend buying the Fast Lane passes to make sure you able to ride all the coasters. We only had one rude employee who didn't know what the Fast Lane wristband was and refused to let us ride at first.

My friend and I got to the park when it first opened and it was the best! I hated the fact that they had us roped off for about 45 minutes. Once we were released we didn't have to wait in one line after that. We got the ticket that included a meal which was cool because if I had... More

If you have been to one decent amusement park, you know that they are all nearly the same, but Dorney has a few tricks up its sleeve in entertainment - great shows.

The rides are nice (love the green coaster, Hydra?) There is a nice selection of roller coasters and water rides. The place is not too crowded if you go early. which I love and a great value for the price. They also usually have great discounts of the pricing! The season pass is def worth it if you plan a...

I live near the park so I took my granddaughter here in August. Mistake. Long lines, over crowded pools (which were so cold we couldn't stay in) and tasteless overpriced food was bad enough. Finding a restroom was worse. Long lines made it impossible to get a child in. The odor around them told the story. This place is a... More

First visit. Spent the entire day with my daughter, sister and nieces. My sister and nieces have season passes and I can understand why. Everyone enjoyed themselves. The park is clean. The lines were light and moved quickly. The rollercoasters were fun. Water rides were refreshing on a hot day. Getting the pre-purchased drink refills is a must. Variety of... More

I have been going to Dorney Park for nearly 50 years, and, though it has changed a great deal during that time, it is still a great place to spend a day if you like thrill rides and water parks. If you have young children, or do not like to go on a lot of rides, then Knoebel's is probably... More

Doreny Park is the most over-shadowed park in PA. Not only does this park have very light lines on weekends, but it is super clean, tons of great rides and overall just a great place to spend the day. For the rollercoaster lovers, their top of the line coasters will send you in every direction possible. Talon, their giant inverting... More
