I was at the park yesterday (instead of Knoebels, where we're going today) and walked on just about everything. Does anyone have any idea why they asked us to take off our fanny packs on Thunderhawk? We wore them on every other ride, including Talon and Hydra.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

It looks like all the details for Haunt are live. Necropolis is a retheme/replacement for Grave Walkers, Cut Throat Island is no more (thankfully), and it looks like Trick or Treat will have dimmer or no lights this year. Also, Blood Drums returns for another year as the major show, with no more Skeleton Crew. https://www.dorneypark.com/play/haunt/attractions

It's going to be a disappointing 2019 for the dry side from what I heard last night. Capex is being reduced largely due to bad weather/slow attendance.

I know more about donkeys than women!

How long has it been since any year hasn't been "disappointing" for the dry side? 2008 with Possessed? Dorney is what it is, and I enjoy it for that, but expecting large-scale investment in this park is a pipe dream.

Disappointing shouldn't really be the word since people should have reasonable expectations by now, but we got Demon Drop in 2010 so by your metric it's probably that (unless anyone liked Stinger). I'm still confused as to why they seriously moved Demon Drop and thought it was a good idea but I'm SO glad they did it. :lol:

Snake Pit was a pretty good addition too, especially considering the water side is usually busier. But since then haven't they only gotten some bumper cars and flyers?
