Nice photos. Anytime friends/family ask me about Dorney I always always always say its a very nice park. I could complain about other things, but its a very nice park.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I just remember acres of concrete, and wishing for trees.

but we did have a good time there (it helped that Possessed holding break was still operating during our visit - tho Stinger was (of course) down).

When I say nice I mean well-kept. They could definitely use more trees, other than around Thunderhawk.

If you think Steel Force was good in the back, wait till you ride it in the front. The front row is the only place I ride Steel Force.

When the lift isn't slowing the train to almost a dead stop, I actually prefer Steel Force in the back. However, that seems like the norm now.

Is that during a 3 train op or 2?

I was at DP 2 weeks ago during a 2 train op and it seemed fine going up the hill.

I'll be here on Sunday. I have a meal add on with my ticket. Please, someone give me a recommendation on where to use it. Thanks!

I honestly don't remember. Every day I've visited has been the typical dead Dorney day so they very well could have gotten away with two. But knowing Cedar Fair, they love their operations and would run three anyway.

As of my last trip to the park, the 3rd train still wasn't ready. I think it has only been used on summer weekends in past seasons.
