This park is very good as long as it isn't packed otherwise it isn't worth going to. Plenty of rides for the little ones and has fun activities for Halloween that won't scare them

This place used to be a great family adventure, but for 4-5 years now it's like rough areas of the Bronx, Harlem or downtown Philly. Park attendees are rude disrespectful, with people smoking in little kids areas and not told to stop, so it is NOT a fun or relaxing day. We witnessed women having their purses stolen when they...

I would not recommend this park to anyone who considers themselves a thrill seeker. I passed by this park so many times on the interstate and really thought this park looked awesome, so I finally had a chance to stop. I went on every ride and was highly disappointed. The rides were very rough and made me feel nauseous. I... More

Good water park and good amusement park. Season pass is fairly reasonable. Free parking with season pass. Day pass is not cheap.

I had hoped the park had improved the climate of the place but the staff does little to have crowd control. Some of the patrons should be on leashes cause dogs act better than what I observed there. Back in the 60' s it was a family park much like Knoebel's but times change and many do not ( nor... More

Lots to do here...rides, games, stores, food. The rides are fun, the lines get long, but they keep adding new ones every few years. The waterpark is a blast as well. Admission is high for the type of park, but I grew up going here & remember when it was affordable for regular visits without a pass. Your best option... More

Great park! Still maintains its overall old feel although its attractions are definitely up to date. Prices are expensive, though I guess competitive. Watch when you go - when it's crowded, it can be hectic.

If you're looking for something to do with the family or friends, this is definitely something you can do with everyone. It's about $50 for the whole day and half of that after 5 or so. The ride Possessed, Hydra, Talon, and Steel Force are some of my favorites. The food there is really expensive if you don't mind, but... More

We have visited Dorney park several times over the years. For us, it is worth the 3 hour drive. We like both the rides and the water park. We come down for the weekend. The giant wave pool is a hoot. Everybody waits in anticipation and then it starts and the kids start screaming (in glee). We like the lazy... More

We started out late but we got the idea to take our two young grandkids, which we watch once a week to Dorney Park. Being young they only last a few hours before they tired out. With a season pass this perfect, we come for a few hours and then go home. Parking is also free with a season pass.... More
