Dorney Park plans to update this longtime attraction
A popular attraction at Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom will be getting a makeover for the 2020 season.
The multilevel Island Water Works, a featured fun spot at the summertime recreational destination since 1998, will be replaced this winter with an updated version, Vice President/General Manager Mike Fehnel said during the Board of Commissioners meeting Wednesday in South Whitehall Township.
“It is time to renew it,” he said.
Commissioners granted the amusement park’s request to waive land development review requirements for replacing the attraction, which takes up 0.3 acres of the property at 3830 Dorney Park Road.
The project will result in a net decrease in stormwater flow because that intake will be utilized by the attraction upon hitting the wet deck and won’t enter the storm sewers, according to a project narrative submitted to the township.
The three-level activity area features misters, jet sprays and target shooting with water guns.
The Morning Call
This is definitely good news for Wildwater Kingdom fans.
