They also have a good number of rides and coasters from manufacturers that operate at rides at other parks in the winter

I Love Donkeys!

Since these boards have been so freaking dead for awhile I have one item that was shared with me. The park is giving strong consideration to retiring the Enterprise and replacing it with a Zamperla Endeavor, which from what I'm told is similar but more like a "Paratrooper on Steroids". Enterprise's maintenance costs are growing and its just coming to the end of its useful life.

Doesn't sound like a 2019 addition but something to keep an eye on. No additional word on Winterfest other than they believe the Lehigh Valley would respond really well to the event.

Boo. Can't replicate the freedom of classic Enterprise restraints (that is the lack thereof).

I'm glad to see WWK is open until at least 7:00 every day. I hated the 6:00 closings.

After 12, the park is a ghost town during haunt. 1am closes were the dumbest things. As dumb as when they closed at midnight on sundays during haunt. Park was empty by 8 and you'd stand around the rest of the night.

8pm closes end of May and beginning of June. Two years ago I believe it was 6pm or 7pm.

9pm closes in june are kind of smart though since you still wont have the summer rush just yet.

But that ride is the only reason worth going to Dorney
