Overley expensive just a theme park. not like when the Parks family had it was always full, they kept in simple. Crazy prices, other parks are much better deals.

This outing was Exhilarating! We had a blast from start to finish. The best part is that there are activities for all ages and the venue is very clean. The fact that the long lines could be fast tracked was another plus. While i intend to explore other parks I would definitely return to Dorney.

We've been to many amusement parks with the family (Six Flags, Hersheys, Disney, etc) and we really love Dorney Park. Snoopy World is terrific for little kids and I prefer to it the children's areas of Six Flags, etc. The park isn't too big, but has more than enough for a one day trip with the family.

Having not been in here in 15+ years I was pleasantly surprised on how much I enjoyed being here. Went mid week and it wasn't too busy. I'll say that the price to enter is a little much but not way over priced. Great for a day out with the family or couples.

Grew up near Dorney but never really spend a lot of time there. Our kids went as teenager with friends and I even had a daughter that worked ther for many years. Now as Grandparents we love taking the grandchildren with season passes. Great way to spend a few hours and having fun.

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 including Talon, Hydra, and Stinger. My personal favorite is Talon but Hydra and Stinger are also very fun. I have never been on Steel Force... More

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. It is a two in one, with an amusement park and a water park. As most amusement parks go, food can... More

Having grandchildren and living so close Dorney Park is a Great Value. We spend hours , week after week at the park there is enough small stuff to keep my... More

After raising three children to adulthood, amusement parks are not quite the attractions that they once were. That being said, Dorney Park is well located and easily reached from Interstate 78 and PA Route 309. There is ample parking and is to easy get in and out of the lots. It is a two for one park and the younger... More

A season pass is the best deal. We even purchased the food & drink plan. Unfortunately, like other attractions, the items are way over priced for most people. The food was ok, many times it was not cooked properly. The people are nice, crowded at times, and they really need to lower the prices to realistic amounts. The Halloween attraction... More
