New for 2015: The Cedar Creek Flyers

Image

Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom, the center of summer fun and family entertainment in the Lehigh Valley, will be adding a new family ride, barbeque dining experience and All Season Dining program for season passholders as part of its plan for the 2015 season.

The Cedar Creek Flyers will be added to the lower section of the park across from Stinger. This unique experience is an updated version of a classic thrill ride. Riders will sit in one of eight “eagles” suspended from arms 28 feet in the air. As the ride spins, the eagles will swing outward – and riders have the unique opportunity to control their flight experience from mild to wild!


... Dorney. I would like to sincerely apologize in advance for what we're going to do to those cables.

^^ Thats exciting, another reason to go back next year! Wondering if they are going put these on that circular concrete pad everyone thought the Windseeker was supposed to go, its right there.

Given that Dorney generally seems to run their flats fairly well, Flyers there might be a lot of fun. Not a bad addition!

I know a lot of people complain that they're being added all over the place, but they're fun rides and this will work wonderfully at Dorney. That part of the park really needed a new family ride, too.

I love that these rides are making a comeback. Sure these models aren't as good as the ones at Carowinds and Kings Dominion and they don't even belong in the same discussion as the ones from Knoebels but you can still snap them. We did at Cedar Point and Six Flags America. Any flyer that can be snapped is a fun ride.

Ive ridden the ones @ Hershey and SFA and loved both of them. Moreys in Wildwood is also getting them for 2015, which is basically perfect for them (and me!)

Now I guess we can be quiet about that circular area being used for a Windseeker. I do kind of hope that it will bring in more foot traffic down into that area of the park.

They are also adding a barbecue place as well, which is much needed as the variety on what to eat was kind of small.

Not a bad choice of additions for next year.

Great addition for Dorney! Nice to see they're finally getting some love. With the park mentioning "across from stinger", I guess they aren't giving up on it.

Unfortunately you're absolutely right. I was really hoping for a Windseeker but this will be a great addition too.
