I'm just now seeing this because they just posted it on their page again but it's nice to see that they've just entirely given up. Closed every Tuesday all summer? Yesterday was a Tuesday and Great Ad

According to queue-times, Dorney is among the most crowded CF parks other than the Point. Seems I usually hear it's noncrowded. Which is it?

 

Queue Times is not useful for Dorney. I'm pretty sure the park is just posting those wait times as a type of inside joke.

I’ll be visiting Dorney Park on Sunday, August 4th as part of a PA/NJ coaster trip. Since I usually hear that the park does not get crowded, I’m guessing four hours would be enough time to ride everything at least once, am I correct? My tentative plan is to be at Dorney Park from Open to 2pm and then head to Great Adventure for the evening.

Does anyone know if Dorney still does Halloweekends in September/October? And if so have you been there and did you enjoy it? I want to plan a trip this year but I've only been during the summer months.

I've heard that winter fest isn't happening just yet.

Well no, it's July.

 

Thanks for informing me about that. I will be sure to use this information wisely.

Went to the park on Saturday night and it was probably the worst Dorney Park experience of my life. Grand Carnivale looks very well done however that area of the park is not meant to house 25,000 people. It was a total clusterfuck. Also, I was blown away by how much weed I smelled throughout the night. I was an avid pothead till my late 20s, but I barely saw any security throughout the night. There was an instance where a group was in a circle passing around green like it was nothing. Just saying that its a family environment and not yet legal. The park needs to own this issue and ramp up security.

 

Also, food services usually hits its stride by this point in the summer, however it was worse than ever on Saturday night. I waited for a Chicken & Shrimp basket for 20 minutes with not a single person in front of me in line. Kid left the register after taking my order and began cleaning tables/the condiment stand. Came back and asked me what I was waiting for. The girl who was "preparing" food in the back of the stand just stared at the wall and wouldn't acknowledge me.

Seeing pictures like that make me want to avoid summer weekends unless I was just going to ride coasters. Cars parked anywhere they could find space on Saturday even behind a Haunt building. I can't even imagine how bad WWK must have been.

I'm starting to plan some coaster trips out for next year, and I have a question for the locals/regulars. When doesDorney Park begin weekday operation, typically? Do they have a set week that is the same every year, or is it more variable. Also, am I correct in saying that this isn't a park I need a full day to experience, given I'm not going to go to the water park? Thanks in advance!
