Saw this posted on Reddit and figured I'd share it here since it doesn't seem to have been posted before.

Cedar Fair has gotten even stricter with seatbelts. Now on the non coaster rides, them ride operators walk around and tighten everyone's seatbelt to the point where it is uncomfortable. On the Whip, they also now put the slack of each belt around the lap bar and it takes close to 4 minutes from when the riders are let into the ride area until the ride starts.

They are also now selling game prizes at each game booth if you would rather just buy the stuffed animal. Prices range from $4 to $125 depending on the item.

Donkeys give me orgiastic scream!

Hey folks. Ive never even heard of this park, much less been to it, but apparently its not far from New Brunswick!

Ive read the last few pages, and the consensus seems to be that crowds arent an issue.

Does that hold for the water park? I'm thinking of going Monday. I went to Hurricane Harbor last year and it was a disaster, so I was hoping this spot would be a little more pleasant.

If not, I think Ill go tubing off Easton.

I never go to either waterpark but apparently Dorneys is in fact larger (and better by most accounts) than Hurricane Harbor, however the waterpark is where most of the crowds go @ Dorney. The dry park stays quiet most times, at least til the waterpark closes. The park does offer Fast Lane for the waterpark, you'll never come close to needed it for the dry side.

Crowds aren't a known concept.

This sound like my experience at Morey's Piers. I've been stapled with lap bars before, but I've never seen an op grab the belt and tighten it to the max before then stapling the restraint.

Made the trek out to Dorney for twilight ticket and due to the weather the park was even more empty than usual. Every single coaster was a walk on or 1-2 train wait. We arrived at Dorney around 5 and left around 7:45 riding everything multiple times for the most part. It was a great day with a bonus since we got to end it with Waffle House.

As far as the rides themselves go Steel Force was fun and nothing more in the front row, Talon was its usual very solid self, Demon Drop was terrifying as always and Possessed was still running without the holding breaks. The one ride that really grabbed my attention today believe it or not was Hydra. I had my best ride ever on it, the coaster was absolutely flying through the course delivering, dare I say it, a pretty forceful ride. I don't think the trims were on at all since there was no slowing down at any portion of the ride. If this is the case I hope Dorney leaves them off for good. Now on to the photos.

I've ridden this thing more times than I can count and it is still the drop tower that scares me the most.

Nice update. Since when does Hydra have trims? :lol: I love that its a complete walk on and they have both trains in operation. So Dorney.

Also an All Star fan here. You're making me hungry with that post.

Good point about Hydra. I just can't wrap my head around why the rides on it today were so crazy.
