  • This park has something for everyone. It has a Peanuts themed section for kids and has many fun rides for older kids and adults as well. Especially good for teens. Lots of fun roller coasters includin...  more »
  • Dorney Park and WWL is a super way to spend a day full of fun. The large park offers a variety of more or less the adrenalin to dry well in the water. Bored, it certainly will not be:) In addition, there is a number of smaller shops and an extensive food court, offering American "classics".

  • Downey Park is a great place to go over the summer. There are many thrill rides, along with rides for the people who don't enjoy roller coasters. The park isn't as big as others, but is still very fun...  more »

  • Great family fun! Season pass is a smart buy if you live locally and plan to visit more than once. Discounts on food and exclusive events with season pass as well. Bathrooms are clean. Wave pools clean, wear water socks if you can, bottom is a little rough. Lots of great live entertainment and shows. Dorney Park Haunt was great too! Lots of new attractions! Employees truly get into thier rolls!
  • Great amusement park. Lots of fun for all ages. The service isn't the best. Sometimes they offer promotions on their website that don't give directions on how to obtain the promotion. The lines have been relatively short this year. The water park is amazing on a hot day.
  • Despite the fact that it started pouring shortly after I decided to go to the water park I had a blast. I absolutely loved that they pulled out ponchos available for purchase quickly!!!!!!! I also paid for the clam bake option that have on weekends. And that was amazing. The only reason im not giving it five starts is because during the clam bake the beginning it was just a little bit disorganized. But they did a fabulous job in the end !
  • I went for Halloween Haunt. They do a good job with all of it. They offer the option to not be scared which is good if you have kids or people who aren't into being scared. I think you have to buy it, which honestly should be a free option. The rides are cooler with all the fog machines going. No spoilers for the spooky attractions from me, you have to go and check it out.
  • Dorney is my home park, and this place is sure to give you some screams. The only turn off is Dinosaurs Alive. It's really boring. I would consider this the perfect family theme park. Older kids head straight for the coasters. They also have a good amount of regular thrill rides, too. Once that flip you upside down, ones that spin you, and calmer ones for parents that have no clue what they're getting into. The water park is perfect for summer. There are two wave pools and a ton of water slides. There are also a lot of kiddie water sections for younger kids who are too short to ride waterslides. There is also camp and planet snoopy with flat rides for the kids who want to ride instead of sitting on the parents lap. And if the want to ride a coaster, Woodstock is a fast ride that looks small but goes around 3 times for a lasting ride. This park will leave tons of memories and you'll want to go back!
