This (in addition to the Hydra pic above) would make for a great desktop image! Regardless of whether or not it's a great ride (I'd still love to find out personally someday!), Hydra is certainly very photogenic!

Yes, as "clunky" as they are, I do like those first-generation Intamin drop rides, like Demon Drop.

Great report so far! All of these are great parks, but I've only visited Cedar Point out of the mix so far this year...Still making plans to visit Dollywood as well. I got a chance to ride the four mountain coasters in the Smokies back in March...They're great fun! Definitely a must when visiting the area...At least to try once. I have to say I think the Gatlinburg Moutain Coaster was my favorite. It was the shortest but definitely the fastest. I'm hoping to visit some of these other parks in your report next year.

I'm a know-it-all about donkeys!

Yesss, I love how under-rated Dorney Park is! A lot of people give them a hard time, so I went with bare-minimum expectations and loved the place. It might be a little "Cedar Fair blacktop and trash cans" in appearance, but Possessed packs a good punch, Hydra may be light on forces, but is a HUGE refresher compared to the more "cookie-cutter" floorless coasters, and I thought Talon was one of the better inverts when riding in the back row.

Plus it has some of the "Pennsylvania old school charm", retaining a whip ride, the classic woodie, and with the addition of Demon Drop, despite being a transplant.

There is no such thing as a donkey punch.

I'll be at Dorney Park next Saturday to get some rides on the worlds best mine train and my favorite B&M duo. And of course, the log flume will NOT be forgotten! For some reason, I just really love going to Dorney. That might be because my local park is Six Flags Trashmerica though...

I love donkeys more than me.

Does Dorney Park have an obsession with railings? I mean they have railings everywhere!
They have:

Railings here
Railings there
Railings in the que
Railings in my view


As you can see, there are a lot of railing, and I'm afraid that it's because Dorney is reacting to a trend caused by GP who like to wander off pathways or hop the line. I hope this trend stops! :wtf:
Don't worry, it's an emergency! I'm Chuck Norris

Annoying, impatient and needs to be kicked by a donkey.

Sick freestyle

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

Nice trip report! Cedar Point gets better every time I visit. The Valravn area looks really nice on the midway. Looking forward to my daughter hitting the 52" mark, hopefully next year. Nice job KT on those enormous coasters!
