I've bought season passes to Dorney Park for the past 8 years but this is the first year we most likely will not spend our money here. In the past I've always bought passes as its been much cheaper to go here for summer entertainment than a pool membership. We've really never had any problems and have always enjoyed ourselves....

Well worth the drive to turn into a long day trip. Between the rides, water park, and shows there is lots to like for every member of the family.

Dorney has been part of our family summers since I was a small child. The park is well run, clean, and updated just about every year. The biggest issue is that the costs have gone up and it is much more crowded with folks from well out of the area any more. It's lost a bit of the local feel,... More

I like Dorney because it has plenty of rides for young and old and a waterpark too! It's close to my house so buying a Season Pass is a must! I've also planned several events there using the pavillions and the wait staff was great and the place is always clean.

Gets crowded. We have season passes. We go first thing in the morning, hit everything and then get out before the crowds jam in.

Dorney Park is an exciting place, whether it's a couple, or family. There is something to enjoy for everyone. My spouse and I go just to have a good time together alone and go with our children and enjoy both the amusement park side; as well as the Waterpark side.

I absolutely LOVE Dorney Park! My whole family loves this place and we try to get together and go as a group as often as possible. It can be a little pricey, but you can purchase Season Passes which are a VERY good deal if you plan on visiting the park more than just a few times throughout the season.... More

Way too expensive-both admission and food/drinks-but plenty of variety. It pays to buy season passes.
