Voodoo looks like the perfect new attraction for Dorney Park! I'm extremely happy they saved this ride! The last time I was at Geauga Lake and rode it, it sounded and felt AWFUL. Definately needed to get the refurb!

All Dorney Park really needs now is a nice new wooden coaster (even though Thunderhawk was awesome last year I when I was there) to round out it's collection!

I didn't have a good experience when I went to Dorney. The park was mostly coasters (this was back when I was afraid to ride coasters), and people kept trying to jump us in line. Maybe I should go back there sometime and give Dorney a chance to redeem itself...

However, VooDoo is looking great! This is another coaster I missed when I went to Geauga Lake! Grrr! :x

Egh, I really don't like those wheel covers. Just look....bleh. I prefer wheels and contraptions showing.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by the ride sounding awful...If you're talking about the screech that the ride made on the back spike, that sound has always been there since I can remember. Other than that, I can't think of any out of the ordinary sounds SV making the last time I rode it.

I had the chance to ride SV in its last season of operation before it closed down and I can remember the ride was running pretty good. If it wasn't for the accident the ride had that caused the ride to have a major closure, I don't think the ride would have received any attention other than a new paint job when it got moved. However, the accident did cause a lot of damage and from what I know from the accident, a number of the LIM fins and motors were damaged, so CF had no choice to repair the ride. Hell, they were too cheap to do so at GL and that's why it never opened after the accident, but I'm sure they had no willingness to do so since they knew the park was closing down ayways. I'm sure the coaster is going to be a nice attraction to the park, but I'm not a big fan of the traditional Intamin impulses. I'd much rather ride Vertical Velocity (SFDK) over a standard impulse anyday lol.

I thought the power line was supposed to have been put in last year.

I didn't say that it wasn't put in. I just said that they are having problems with it.

Dorney Park opened today for the season. Here are some pictures of voodoo. There are more photos of Voodoo and the park but these are the cool ones.

Too bad the ride isn't opening for two weeks!

Why wasn't the Laser operating?
I can't wait to go there this August, and also, when is the best time to go to the park in August?
