Great value and clean. Wish it was closer because I really love Dorney Park. I refuse to go to Great Adventure again.

We purchased our tickets on line to save money. Being a senior I purchased the season card because we were going two days in a row so I saved 10% on everything we bought and ate plus it included free parking for a season pass. The first day we went to the Wildwater Kingdom and when it closed at 6... More

I don't want to sound snobbish, and this review has nothing to do with skin colors (since we are a bi-racial family), however...this was our first time at Dorney and our last! We have never seen a collection of more trashy, ghetto people in our lives! It was like going to the most impoverished area of the United States with... More

We live closer to Dorney Park, but usually go to Six Flags, but I thought lets try out Dorney Park for something different. It was nice to try something new! We had a very fun time! We went on cloudy Tuesday with a little bit of rain. Even though the rain was a little inconvenient, it kept the crowds to... More

My husband and I brought our two kids (7 and 4) to mainly enjoy all Planet Snoopy has to offer. The most frustrating thing is that ALL riders on the kiddie rides must be buckled and unbuckled by an attendant. This makes the loading/unloading process extremely slow. I appreciate the safety aspect, but come on. We've visited several theme parks... More

OK, it was a Saturday, so I expected it to be crowded, but it was so crowded, you could hardly enjoy any of the venues. The lines for the slides were so long, we could only go on one. The wave pool was so crowded, you were constantly brushing others. The layout of the park is also terrible with gates... More

Was here in June of this year. Park staff were great and professional at entry to park. Staff at park are young - well behaved and mannerly. The rides were fast and fun. The food is Way Too Overpriced. The wave pool and water park are good. Lockers are real expensive. Water rides were geared toward younger / smaller built... More

My husband, stepdaughter and I love roller coasters and water slides. We are typically the first in line to enter a park when it opens, to beat the crowds. Last weekend however, we were going to visit Dorney almost an hour after it opened, on a hot July Sunday. While we usually never see long lines for Dorney's roller coaters... More

My husband and I took our 3 daughters here the other day. My kids had the best time! We did rides in the morning and if we got too hot, we would go over to the water park and cool off and then go to the rides again! It wasn't crowded at all and the park has a lot of... More
