No, its NOT the Disney of the north, its NOT Great Adventure, and if you have young children, beware, this place busses in thousands of high schoolers, both local and from NYC and Philly, so if you want to hear their language, and pick up a few slangs, then go. If not, avoid it!

I came here for the first time a few years ago as a weekend senior trip. We had such a good time and I was happy to be able to go again with two great friends. The day we had planned got rained out, but luckily we had a hotel and were able to switch our days. We got up... More

Buses come from all over to bring people to Dorney Park. I have been going with my kids for many years now, and have seen it grow into a big park, with quite a few high energy thrill rides that can complete with more well-known parks. It still feels "park=like"however; with lots of trees and it is not too expansive... More

I Gregory Grookett have been going to the park ever since I was a young child and have very fond memories of here growing up and the park today has evolved and changed with the times and is very up to date with new great rides. Gregory Grookett recommends this for a great time with family and friends.

Rides are good when they are working. Staff can be unhelpful at times not always customer friendly. Water park is gross, and people there are city element scary. The Park needs to police the patrons better and eject the bad element before this gets better. Halloween is awesome, 4th of July fireworks are great. Good selection of food, rides, games,... More

This is a first-rate amusement park. The thing that impressed us was how clean it was. We were there with grandchildren and didn't go on some of the rides that the children went on. There were plenty of benches to sit and wait, some shady areas and very pleasant surroundings. Numerous areas were available to eat, although food was expensive.... More

Rides are good when they are working. Staff is unhelpful. Not customer friendly. Water park is gross and crowd is scary. Need to work on enforcing park rules. Fun for Halloween.

This is a nice park with plenty of thrill rides, especially if you like cutting-edge rides. The rides are wild enough to make anyone eventually puke, so that's a good yardstick. My kids and I made it through three of the most aggressive roller-coasters before I could sense the puke-taste appearing in my mouth. If I were younger I would... More

I went to Dorney Park for the first time this past fall and it was so much fun. They were running a great deal so for $44 you received admission and an all you can eat lunch. I love roller coasters and Dorney has some great ones. I could spend a day on Possessed. The park was great for kids... More
