If Dorney ever gets a new coaster my guess is it would be a GCI or maybe a RMC Raptor. This is assuming hell freezes over though.
In my opinion El Toro and Intimidator 305 ride fairly and are free of material roughness.

If so and it does get removed . . . perhaps it and the old Stinger site could be used for a GCI or Gravity Group woodie?


Oh man can we not start with this? Its been a good 4-5 months since this was mentioned. There is absolutely nothing to this perpetual rumor that seems like it will never die. The park could add 4 B&Ms and enthusiasts would still be all "Dinos Alive, guys. GCI woodie all the way!!"


Lmao I was literally like “here we go again” when I saw this.

This rumour is going on year 5-6 now.

Dorney Park is awesome. My main focus.

Looks good. That view of nothing at all is better than looking at Stinger.

Was Stinger really that bad?? -- I only ask because it's pretty much a clone of Invertigo at KI, and Invertigo really isn't that bad. Is it great? No. But it's very re-rideable, and much better than a traditional sit down boomerang.
Bigger is not always better. (And anyone who has ridden Wonder Woman knows this is true!)

^ Better than a traditional boomerang isn’t saying much.

Stinger wasn’t running half the time anyway. I personally didn’t care for it. So no I won’t miss it.

I completely agree with your opinion of Invertigo. Stinger is not even close to it in terms of quality. Stinger was one of the few coasters I couldn't wait to get off as soon as it started going. It was horrible and will not be missed.

What made Stinger so much worse than Invertigo?
