Let's get the good out of the way first. We saved money by buying tickets in advance and due to the park being quiet we barely had a wait all day to talk of. No problem riding the front and back of coasters, whatever you wanted the lines were short enough to sit where you pleased. Hydra and Talon were... More

This will be the last year I buy a season pass. I've been going to Dorney Park since I was a child and always loved it, but the park I once loved has passed away. The constant advertising in New York City, Piladelphia and the slum cities of New Jersey has brought a disgusting crowd in and it has destroyed... More

The rides and the layout of the park are exceptional. There are an abundant amount of high thrill rides in both the amusement park as well as the water park. The day we went the lines weren't that long. My only contention is that the Fast Lane Pass is very expensive and is an unfair way of moving people to... More

I love going to dorney with my family but when I went a couple days ago I noticed the workers were rude, they didn't smile, and they looked like they didn't enjoy their job. Also there was about 3 rides shut down in snoopy land and like 3 roller coasters shut down in the park. I felt like it wasn't... More

I grew up going to dorney park my whole life and I never expected it to change so rapidly. The last time I went there was about three years ago, and I don't remember at all the crowd being so rough. My boyfriend and I completely skipped the water park due to it looking dirty and it totally skeeved us... More

Nice park with lots of good roller coasters. Steel Force is amazing. Easy access to the park from Route 78. Plenty of parking. Look for discount tickets online.

We really enjoyed Dorney Park. There was plenty of parking and there were many opportunities to get good discounts on tickets if purchased on line. The food was quite pricey in the park but there is a picnic area outside the park if you decide to bring your own food. Getting around the water park area could get a big... More

Family and I were in eastern Pa in Mid July 2014. We had some adventures in the poconos, they were looking for something else. We found a nice Marriott hotel in New Jersey. We then started to look for things to do in the area. We found an amusement and waterpark called Dorney Park. We never heard of it before,... More
