For the last 26 summers I have been a Dorney Fan...They don't have the biggest and tallest coasters on the East Coast..But they do have a few Vintage Rides like "The Whip" that are still Fun....Their waterpark is real good, always clean and the slides are very modern ...Plus 2- wave pools....The only drawback of the whole park is it...

Overpriced. Has gotten very very crowded over the past 5 years. Lots of hills/walking. Food prices are outrageous. Tailgate in the parking lot.

Last year my family and I went to Dorney Park. The younger family members enjoyed the rides while the older family members played some of the games. We all enjoyed walking through the Dinosaur's Alive park and seeing all the different dinosaur's. It is a great place to visit and have fun with the family.

I've been going to Dorney ParK since I was a small child.As with most parks today you have to pay a fee even to just walk around so I personally haven't been there for a few years but my children and grandsons have season passes since we're only 10 minutes from the park. The rides are always being updated.If you... More

It may be smaller than the real biggies, with fewer rides, but all the perks in the title make up for it. Staff is competent, food selections are good, rides range from basic to cutting edge thrills. Walkways are clean and clear and roomy, so getting around is easy.

First time I went on a roller coaster that goes upside down. Never too old to act like a kid again! With friends had a wonderful time. There are old favorite rides, this park has a lot of history.

We have been going to Dorney for years. It's the only park I know of that has both water rides and the usual fast thrill rides all within walking distance. Also has rides water park for the smaller kids. Everyone that says "get there early" is correct! The park has grown over the years and now has buses arriving from... More

Nice park, but get there early. Got tired of waiting in lines for the rides. Lots of walking. Couple places to stop and rest. I guess I got there on a very crowded day.

I haven't visited Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom in many years and man have I been missing out! My brother and I needed a coaster day and headed to Dorney Park. We arrived with plenty of places to park and close enough to the entrance. It was a very hot day so many people were over in Wildwater Kingdom, which... More
