We visited on a Thursday and the crowds were reasonable until about 2:30pm. At 2:30, we saw lines everywhere. We had 4.5 great hours in the park. My young son, 5, loved all of Snoopy rides. My older son, 10, loved the coasters and thrilling water rides. We did all of the slides by 12:45 and then spent time in... More

Great theme park. Kids always enjoy it. However the park could definitely use more "benches". And when on line at the more popular rides, DP does not go out of their way to cater to guests well-being. Unlike other major theme parks DP lacks overhead fans, cooling misters etc., so on hot, humid days... well you know. DP definitely needs... More

I went for a class trip and it wasn't impressive. The rides smelled like b.o. , and the ride seats had bandaids such a dirty place, the staff were teens but really nice, good service but not clean. The next time I go somewhere I'm going to hershey or Great Adventure.

Kids and adults are sure to enjoy this place.my kids had a blast and have gone on multiple occasions. Each summer they're always asking can we go to Dorney? It's worth the 3 hour ride from Northwestern Connecticut because there are no lines to wait in each time we've gone. I've read other reviews about long lines so I'd recommend... More

Knotts Berry farm owns this park and as usual it is the photo typical money trap, the crowds are some of the rudest people I have ever seen, stay out of the pool because I saw many relieving themselves ( disgusting ) , some rides are good but the lines are not , at some point the kids will pressure...

Park extremely clean. We went the last week of August and waited in line less than 5 minutes for the rides. Visited on a Thursday. Was easy to book Holiday Inn directly across the street and walk to park. Hope to be in the area again to go back. Had a lot of rides for everyone in the family and... More

This is my favorite theme park in the New England area. So clean and I love the music they play. So much better than Six Flags. Lines could be long on the weekend. Love the water park in the summer. We visit every year.
