I like the rumor of the tunnel getting readded to Thunderhawk. I'd like it even better if they added bumper cars back on top as well. :)

Queue Times is not useful for Dorney. I'm pretty sure the park is just posting those wait times as a type of inside joke. :lol:

^ Wouldn't be the first Cedars Fair park to have inaccurate queue times on that site. Valleyfair lists all their rides as closed or 5 minutes.

I’ll be visiting Dorney Park on Sunday, August 4th as part of a PA/NJ coaster trip. Since I usually hear that the park does not get crowded, I’m guessing four hours would be enough time to ride everything at least once, am I correct? My tentative plan is to be at Dorney Park from Open to 2pm and then head to Great Adventure for the evening.

Does anyone know if Dorney still does Halloweekends in September/October? And if so have you been there and did you enjoy it? I want to plan a trip this year but I've only been during the summer months.

^^ As long as you don't plan to go in the water park, that's plenty of time.
