    My children and I have been going to the park for a few years. We get a season pass and enjoy the multiple visits. The Fast Lane add on was great as is the beverage option. They now have a two meal a ...  more »

    I had very low expectations coming here, and they weren't low enough. What an absolute dump. First of all the park is very small and the lines can get long. We waited 45 minutes to get in...that's wit...  more »

    I had a great time. There was great rides and Planet Snoopy was great for kids. The tickets aren't expensive since you can access the whole park. Wildwater park closes at 6 pm. My favorite ride was Runaway river. Food is a bit to expensive. Staff are very helpful and polite. They don't have long lines. It was a great experience.

    We've been bringing the kids here for years. The park is generally pretty clean and well kept. I only had one issue with them last year when they had a handful of the rides in the snoopy section with no staff due to them having a bunch of people call out. I made a complaint to them about not being able to do a bunch of rides considering we aren't getting a discount for that issue. I had a good conversation with customer service and was given 2 free tickets for the following season. This happened at the end of the season last year. The food could be a little less expensive for the quality and the food service is pretty slow but we don't go here for the food so its whatever. We always end up having a good time here and will continue to come back.

    We love Dorney park, and especially on the 4th of July for the fireworks. It's really perfect for all ages, they added some crazy thrill coasters in the last few years and kept up with camp snoopy and the great classics like the Enterprise. Wait lines aren't too bad on most rides. Food is crazy expensive so we always pack a cooler and eat in the parking lot, there are picnic tables and grassy areas around. Order tickets online to save money and always order the souvenir cup with tickets for 10.99 and get free refills all day.

    A lot of fun! Everyone looks happy! The line to get on any roller coaster is crazy long though (I couldn't get on any😂)..Also if you can, bring your own food and drinks because stuff here are very much overpriced. But for what they offer , you'll leave pretty satisfied.

    Always great fun for the whole family. Best times are always during the week if you want to beat the crowds. FastTrack passes are also available to skip the lines. Save money buy your tickets on line ahead of your visit. This is half theme park / half water park come prepared to get wet.
