Potatoes are vegetables.

Can't comment on the "cheese" dip tho.

Just in case anyone in here is looking for a little bit of 80's Dorney memories, I came across this footage of the Flying Dutchman on Youtube earlier. The only Pinfari I will ever have (admittedly probably misplaced) nostalgia for.

That coaster dad [316] and that coaster kiddo [175]. Road trip buddies for life.
Dad's faves: Fury 325. Phantom's Revenge. Intimidator 305. El Toro. Skyrush.

Kiddo's faves: Banshee. Top Thrill Dragster. Valravn. Apollo's Chariot. Twisted Timbers.

NEW FREE SEASON PASS FOR CHILDREN - THE PRE-K PASS - COMING TO DORNEY PARK & WILDWATER KINGDOM IN 2018

New café along with Pre-K Pass provides more options for family entertainment
Allentown, PA (August 16, 2017) – Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom will launch a new type of season pass specifically for young children for 2018. The Pre-K Pass grants free admission to children three to five years of age for the entire 2018 season as well as the remainder of 2017.

Dorney Park vice president and general manager Mike Fehnel said, “We’re introducing the Pre-K Pass to help families with young children more easily and affordably enjoy everything that Dorney Park has to offer, in a way that considers the unique needs of this age group. The Pre-K Pass allows parents to save money as the entire family experiences not only the kid’s rides in Planet Snoopy™ but also roller coasters, thrill rides, shows and our fantastic water park.”

Online registration and in-park activation is required for the Pre-K Pass; guests who register and activate between August 16 through October 29, 2017 will receive unlimited park visits for the remainder of 2017 as well as all of 2018. To register, go to www.dorneypark.com, select Season Passes and then select the Pre-K Pass. Follow the directions to submit and activate the pass.

Also new for 2018 is the Tidal Wave Café, opening in Wildwater Kingdom. The nautical themed restaurant will feature popular fare such as hand-battered fried shrimp, rotisserie chicken, hand-breaded chicken tenderloins, and house-smoked pulled pork.

Guests can purchase their 2018 Season Pass at the lowest price of the year now through October 29, 2017. In addition to enjoying unlimited visits to Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom, free season-long parking, exclusive passholder events and discounts on food and merchandise in 2018, passholders can enjoy one free visit this fall to experience Halloween Haunt or The Great Pumpkin Fest. See www.dorneypark.com for full details.

This is a park that absolutely doesn't benefit from more coasters right now. Can't really argue with providing more food service capacity in the water park.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

That's actually a really interesting move for the park. I'd be curious to see how this plays out for them, it strikes me as the kind of thing that they might expand to other properties if it ends up being a lucrative concept.

I agree with the latter. That's the only area of the park that I've ever seen crowded.

This is cool since this means we can get my nephew in for free for a few more years.

Can't wait for all the GCI woodie delusionals to start crying about this.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

I hope given that this is a small addition this year they have more time to focus on food throughout the park. A lot of Cedar Fair food is not the best, but Dorney Park had the single worst cheeseburger of any amusement park I have ever been to. The rest of the food was not very good either. If they really want to attract families with their bumper cars, troika and now this new pre-k pass, decent food is a necessity. I hope they focus on these little things this season.
