^If your talking about people from Camden going to Dorney, I do not see how that is possible. Camden is so poor most residents cannot afford to even enjoy the attractions their own city has, let alone pay tolls, transportation, and admission to a park almost 2 hours away.

Reading and Allentown may be contributing to this "crowd" you speak of, since they have had an increase in criminal activity in certain areas of their cities.

I have been to Dorney several times and I thought it was a "different" crowd that goes but no different then the crowd that goes to Six Flags America. It is definitely a lot different then the Hershey crowd. I guess I am just used to be people being a little ghetto and over the top living in Baltimore hehe. The only thing that bothered me about the park was the line cutting. These days I do not say anything to anyone about line jumping because people are not scared to raise a fist. Heck people line jump in SFA all the time but I never say nothing because that park has had its fair share of shooting and stabbings in the parking lot. This HUGE parking lot and people fight over one parking spot - I do not get it.
I may not know everything about coasters... what I do know is they are my life...

I live in Cumberland and we go to Baltimore a good bit to John Hopkins and the area around that scares the crap out of me!!!!

But yeah, I have been to a park, can't remember which one, and my dad who is in his 70's said something to a group of kids who jumped line and they were ready to take him out!!! I was actually concerned because they were some seriously looking shady people. I have been to SFA a bunch of times and never really had a problem with the clientele, same goes for Dorney. I just ind my business, put on a happy face and enjoy myself. I even try to strike up a conversation while in line with people to kinda break the ice so people can see we are all pretty much alike.
Life is a lemon and I want my money back????

Dorney is one of my favorite parks. I visit it a few times a year & get season passes every year. I've never had a problem with the crowd or atmosphere. In my opinion GADV's crowd is worse. I've never waited more than 20 minutes for a coaster there, even on a busy day, plus you don't have to worry about bags because their coasters have bins for your stuff!

I'm going to Great America on Saturday, and it's going to be my first time seeing the Invertigrass :(

CURSE YOU DORNEY!!1!1

I think that Invertigo tied for tallest coaster in the park; that's how bad we need a new ride :lmao:

Oh, well. Hope you Dorney fans love this thing that I never could ride at CGA :(

Looks like Dorney is following the rest of the Cedar Fair parks by adding Fast Lane:

http://www.dorneypark.com/what-s-new/new-fast-lane

Fast Lane rides include:
Stinger, Steel Force, Dominator (S&S Tower), Possessed, Wild Mouse, White Water Landing, Hydra, Talon, Thunderhawk, and Thunder Canyon!

And yes, there is already a ton of whining on their facebook page!

Dorney needs Fast Lane? :p

Wait, on second thought, I love this just for Wild Mouse. If I hadn't had ERT last year I would've ended up wanting to use it on Talon and Hydra, too.

^ I agree with Elissa, all parks should have a service like this of some sort. Laura I agree with you too about the Wild Mouse at Dorney!
