I'll be going to dorney on saturday and the weather forecast includes some showers. Does anyone know what their policy is when it comes to operating rides in the rain? I hope it's not too bad as I want to make the most of the day.

Oh thanks. The forecast seems to be changing constantly so I'm not really sure what to expect yet. I obviously don't want any rain but as long as I can ride the coasters I'm satisfied.

By the way, what about Cedar Point? Do they operate the rides in the rain?

No CP doesn't operate in the rain. Well they say severe weather may close rides, which it usually always does

 

When i was at KD last year, i rode I-305 in the pouring rain. Should have just shoved shards of metal through my face.

Yeah got that exact same feeling on Leviathan in the rain. It hurts!

^^^^ CP shuts down every ride except Mantis if there's even a sprinkle of rain, so be warned of that.

Anyone have any guesses!?! Is it that wooden coaster we've all been hoping for???

 

Hooray! More Dino's!

Please... no more dinos! I am really hoping that it is a B&M wingrider, GCI, or something for Wildwater Kingdom. If anything, hopefully something that is not used (Posessed), a plagued with problems (Stinger), or an addition to something that is an up-charge (Dinosaurs Alive). Heck, I'd even love a small flat ride going in.

I know I could google, but you guys will be faster...Does Dorney have a Dinosaurs Alive already? If not, I'd put money that it's what they're teasing for 2014.

Yep. They built it in the back corner to the left of Steel Force's entrance and to the right of Revolution, their Chance Claw-type ride.

According to Coaster Crew, this may end of being a water park addition. If so, then I would love to see a Master Blaster-type attraction or even something crazy from ProSlide.

 

From facebook........

 

Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom officials will announce plans for a major addition to the waterpark for 2014 at a Media Conference at the Park on Wednesday, August 28, at 9:15 a.m
