Steel Force’s first set of switchbacks are about filled now according to a Facebook pic I saw. Definitely looks like one of the most crowded days if not the most crowded day in recent memory.

I know we all make fun of Dorney for never having crowds on the dry side, but it's nice to see the park busy.

With added bonus of some idiot complaining about being kicked out for smoking in the comments!


the best part was she claimed she was "racially profiled" because they found a vape pen in her bag.

so I responded, "really? racially profiled?"


and she responded, losing her S#!t, and calling me a Trump supporter.

Bwaaa-haaaa-haaaaa

didn't even bother pointing out to her that there is ZERO chance she would have gotten removed from the park if they found a vape pen in her bag during check that she forgot to leave in the car.

she obviously was doing something she shouldn't have been doing, in a space she shouldn't have been doing it.

but special people feel they have special privileges and damn the rest of us, right?

With 2020 Season Passes on sale, I thought it was interesting that there is now All Season Fast Lane Plus for all Cedar Fair parks for $849. Dorney only went up from $125 to $175.

Where are you seeing this? CP's season FL+ was $849 this year and not for all CF parks.

Also, a quick scan of CF park websites shows the price changes from 2019 to 2020 for season FL/FL+:

Cedar Point $849 to $749 (-$100)
Valleyfair $225 to $150 (-$75)
Michigan's Adventure $109 to $99 (-$10)
Carowinds $249 to $350 (+$101)
Kings Dominion $275 to $275 ($0)
Kings Island $549 to $529 (-$20)

ETA: Weird, it is showing up now. Might have to add that to my platinum pass!

I saw some of her ranting the day of this post. There is almost no chance that the vape pen was in her bag IMO she was likely just walk around with it and lost her mind when she was asked to stop. There is always something more to stories like this.
I wish we didn't live in such a divisive time where people could actually take responsibility for their own actions instead of freaking out and blaming others.

Dorney Park has announced that the new multi-level water play structure Seaside Splashworks will debut at Wildwater Kingdom in 2020!

https://www.dorneypark.com/blog/2019/august/dorney-park-2020-capital-project

aug-15---2020-release.jpg

We will be making waves in its water park when the new beach-themed multi-level play structure, Seaside Splashworks, debuts in 2020!

The new family attraction will feature more than 75 play elements to engage the entire family for hours, including:

  • Six water slides, totaling 430ft in length, with twists and turns for refreshing entertainment;
  • interactive spray jets that guests of all ages can operate;
  • oversized water cannons for splashing family and friends;
  • an adventuresome 195ft net bridge trail where guests can challenge their climbing and discovery skills;
  • a giant 317 gallon tipping bucket that drenches everyone standing below every 3-4 minutes; and
  • a splash zone just for toddlers.

With plenty of lounge chairs and shade structures overhead, Seaside Splashworks is designed for parents to relax in the shade or soak up the sun while their children play nearby. The attraction will be the largest structure in the water park featuring 6 towers, 12 water cannons and nine tipping cones; it replaces the Island Water Works playground and splash pad.
