Dorney is a fine park that serves a good purpose; a nice change of pace from Great Adventure, with decent coasters that get no lines. The park gets bonus points from me for having a good Whip, a nice flume and Demon Drop. And there's a Waffle House approximately 10 minutes away.

 

I don't think the park gets "bashed", it's just lacking when compared to other parks in the region.

 

Although their whip does nothing for for I completely agree with the rest. And sometimes it's nice to just go somewhere for a few hours away from the crowds.

Yall crazy. I fuggin love Waffle House.

 

I enjoy it too! Part of that is because there aren't any in Michigan, so it's a novelty when I travel. But also, it's so dang cheap, and I find the food good, and it's really hard to F-Up breakfast food in general anyway!

Same! Used to go there all the time after the 24-hour things at the Magic Kingdom. The place is a dump, but my God, the food is good for no reason whatsoever.

It was closed and dried out on the 8th when I was there, if you're referring to the log flume.

Alright everyone, thoughts on the houses this year? We're heading down this weekend and we're definitely looking to check a few of them out.

 

My assumption is that Blackout, Chamber of Horrors and Trick or Treat still suck and Blood on the Bayou, Cornstalkers, Tourist Trap and Urgent Scare are the ones to focus on. Am I correct in this?

I skipped Blackout, Cornstalkers, and Grave Walkers (which is apparently a maze with a line now?), but found all of the others to be up to par for a Cedar Pair Haunt - IE great artistry but no actual scares. Of course, I made it a point to be at the rear of every group I was in for the sole purpose of laughing at those who did get scared. I actually quite enjoyed all the work that went into Chamber of Horrors; it was tough telling a few of the wax statues from actual people. Blood on the Bayou was new to me and not all that impressive, but I definitely enjoyed Tourist Trap, Trick or Treat, and Urgent Scare.

Blackout is actually pretty interesting. Last year they had a story behind blackout. Not sure if its the same or if they changed it for this year. Cornstalkers is probably my favorite from doing them in the past.

 

I recommend getting the skeleton key room pass. Age of darkness is pretty crazy. Some of the others are cool as well.

Say hi to Demon Drop, Possessed and Talon for me.

I think I really need to reconsider hitting Great Adventure tomorrow and coming here. Feel like the extra 20 minutes each way in the car will easily be saved in reduced time to wait for rides, mazes, and food.

The park has a movable webcam on facebook showing the construction area in Wildwater. Pretty large, consumes the old Mariner's Munchies stand, Ritas and takes up some of the canopies they built during the previous renovations. While not an exciting addition, I do believe it was necessary. The expanding of the walkway will also help as this area gets really packed, especially during lunch time when the lines interact with the foot traffic.

Facebook has a webcam monitoring the progress of the new eatery in the water park. Should really open up that pathway as it got pretty tight on busy days with lines backing into foot traffic. Looks like they’ll take advantage of the previous landscaping to include some new seating. It’s a shame this didn’t come with some additional expansion.
