I'm interested to see the 195 ft net bridge trail as that has not been included in the several pieces of artwork. Apparently Whitewater West makes ropes/net courses so I can only assume this is all them.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I understand that Dorney has a reputation for not being very crowded as a general rule, but what are crowds like for Haunt, typically? Friday nights, specifically. My kids and I aren't really into the actual Haunts, so we'd primarily be concerned about the lines for the coasters, and other rides. Thanks in advance!

I can't speak to Fridays, but Saturdays will be generally packed. That said, most of the crowd will be packed into the Haunt lines, so coaster lines (aside from Wild Mouse) should be totally reasonable.

Cool, thanks for the info! I'm definitely looking to go either a Friday night, or Sunday non-Haunt day. So it sounds like we should be good to go either way!

I went to Dorney's Haunt one time in Sept. 2016.

Haunt waits for 30 minutes for each Haunted House.
