I can't call myself a regular, but i do have a season pass for myself and my kids for the last 3 years. And i been coming to this park for the last 17 years. My review is based on what i see this year but also referencing my overall years of visiting. I live in New York, so, we... More

After spending 300$ for a family Of 4 (this includes parking for the day) then 20$ for locker and 100$ for food plus who's know for games my sons keys fell off on a ride. They told us immediately that the rides are all searched at the end of the night and call between 10:30 and 11pm. We did no... More

We went on a Friday morning and the kids had a great time. We watched as they just loved every minute of this family outing. There weren't long lines on this day and the only thing that I believe to be a downside is the cost of the food and drinks. I think that is the only part of our... More

I went to this park with my son who is just tall enough to ride everything and my girlfriend who liked all types of rides and her daughter who hates roller coasters. This park provides great balance, I highly recommend the fast pass to enjoy the roller coasters, the regular rides weren't too much of a line, but the coasters... More

Went on a Sunday. As others have mentioned on here, I thought getting there at 10 am would make a difference to beat the crowds, but it did not. The waterpark was so crowded, that we literally did not go on a single ride because of the lines. All 3 wave pools were so crowded that we couldn't go in.... More

I went on Saturday with my six year old and he is 48 inches yet due to faulty sticks he was deemed too small to get on anything so I went to guest services and got him officially measured and he was marked at 48 inches that didn't mattered as he was turned away from rides ... We paid for... More

We arrived 35 minutes before park opening on a cloudy Saturday. The lines were terrible just to get through the entrance turnstiles. I read Saturdays were terrible- I thought we could stay ahead of the crowds by arriving early. Not so. We did enjoy the water park for about 90 minutes before lines started to be long. After lunch, we... More

Being an amusement park fan, I couldn't wait for my kids to be tall enough to enjoy rides with me. Dorney has a very nice variety of rides and coasters to pack in a great day. Although my kids aren't quite ready for Steel Force, they did spend a few hours in camp snoopy. This is a great place for... More

We live nearby and every year I endure 1 day at Dorney just to make the kids happy. We took my in-laws and had kids age 12, 10, 7 & 5. We went to the waterpark at 10am on a Sunday and had about an hour of minimal lines. After that it wasn't uncommon to wait 30-40 minutes for a... More

I visited this location for the first time, it is fabulous.. The kids had so much fun and so did I...But I was very dissatisfied with the cost of renting a both with shade... Come on now that's unbelievably crazy...ADD more umbrellas for shade. Remove the expensive booths....
