^ Those cars move so fast that anything is possible. Hoffman's Playland had the Lusse cars without a center divider and I could cause some deadly collisions without it.

YoshiFan wrote:As expected the bumper cars were just ok. The cycle is very short and the small driving area combined with the metal island in the middle caused a lot of people to spend most of the ride cycle stuck. Stinger was closed with some mechanics working on the ride but it never opened (not that I would have ridden the coaster anyway).

I also noticed this when walking around the park today.

Those sweatshirts were actually from last year. Not sure why they are trying to sell them.

Going to Knoebels is the best way to visit Dorney Park.

I swear, if Knoebels and Hersheypark weren't an hour away from Dorney, it wouldn't get as much flak. Knoebels is one of the most awesometaculararrific parks in existence, and Hershey draws all the crowds.

:lol: Yeah, I have no issue with the island. The problem at Dorney is the speed of the cars and the size of the floor, not the island.

My local park (which is now a state park) used to have a Dodge Em back in the day with "modern" (think 70's) cars mixed with "old school" (think 50's) cars where you could actually see the wheels.

I used to ride the no-see-um "modern" wheeled ones which sat lower to the floor. I remember seeing a couple of people get bloody noses (on the old school models) from whacking their noses on the steering wheel pads from head-on collisions - even with the harnesses (which were always loose as hell).

When I would hit the old school models you could actually see the back wheels leave the ground during a head-on collision, of which there were no rules against doing (so of course, everyone did it). There was no island, so it was a total all-out free for all from start to finish. I was actually intimidated to ride these back in the day until I myself turned into a violent little teen - and then it was on. :devil:

Ahhhh....it's fun to harken back to those good old days. Skooters is the closest thing that can bring me back to that time, so that's why they're so f%cking awesome now.

Quick question for those that might be in the know...

Are any of the park's water rides open for the season yet? Thunder Creek Mountain, White Water Landing, whatever their river rapids ride is?
That coaster dad [220] and that coaster kiddo [84].
Dad's faves: Fury 325 / Intimidator 305 / El Toro / Phantom's Revenge / Skyrush.
Kiddo's faves: Wicked Cyclone / The Joker / Boulder Dash / Phoenix / SooperDooperLooper.

Yes they are. They were open for opening weekend because of the heat, but not this past weekend because of the cold.
