Could be a new clone design.

But I'm not holding my breath just yet for anything.

Does anyone know if funpix is transferable to other parks in the same season? I can’t seem to get an answer from DP, CP, KI or CW, which are all part of a road trip this summer!

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

I don't see Dorney on the list: https://www.carowinds.com/tickets-passes/funpix

Can I use my FunPix card at other Cedar Fair parks?

All Season FunPix cardholders will get to capture, collect and share all of their photos at all other FunPix parks in 2018:

California’s Great America
Canada’s Wonderland
Carowinds

Although I agree with you on that front, when I bring my daughter to the park, she's not at a loss for things to do. Although there's only one coaster she can currently ride at 40", she has a blast on all their flat rides. She's currently able to ride:

- Antique Carousel
- Apollo
- Cedar Creek Cannonball
- Cedar Creek Flyers
- Ferris Wheel
- Monster
- Musik Express
- Road Rally
- Scrambler
- Sea Dragon
- Thunder Creek Mountain
- Tilt-a-Whirl
- Whip
- Zephyr

...and nearly everything in Planet Snoopy, excluding the Linus Launcher. I still think it's a pretty good family park, just not one for the littler coaster riders (and, frankly, given its location, it doesn't need to be when you have options like Knoebels and Hersheypark within an hour's drive).

Dorney is not part of the Funpix program. I think there's a grand total of three rides with photo ops in the entire park (Steel Force, Hydra, and Talon), and half of the time the Hydra and Talon ones are closed anyway. No great loss.
That coaster dad [308] and that coaster kiddo [159]. Road trip buddies for life.
Dad's faves: Fury 325. Phantom's Revenge. Intimidator 305. El Toro. Skyrush.

Kiddo's faves: Twisted Timbers. Lightning Rod. Wicked Cyclone. The Wild One. Goliath (SFGAm).

Reminds me of the Geauga Lake days. Let's hope Dorney doesn't see the same fate.

I might be heading to Dorney for the first time ever in late July on a Saturday. How much time should I plan to spend there before heading to knoebels for the evening?
I'm just trying to ride all the coasters, reride the good ones, and ride all the unique flats and water rides.
Please wake up. We are trying a new technique. We don't know where this will show up in your dream, but we hope this message will reach you. You are in a coma. Please wake up. Your family needs you.

You can ride the coasters, Thunder Creek Mountain and Demon Drop in 2-3 hours. There won’t be crowds. Ride Steel Force in the front.
