I was in Allentown today so I decided to run over to Dorney for a little over an hour.

The park was dead as usual for a non Haunt Sunday, there were a lot of families and a lot of people in WWK for the Boo Blast activities though.

Talon was first, 2 trains running and no wait unless you wanted the front. Operations were great with no stacking and one train was dispatching before the other train got to the final brakes. I got 2 rides and went to Hydra since the Wild Mouse had around a 15 minute line.

White Water Landing as expected is now closed for the season, it was running when I was at the park 4 weeks ago with basically no one riding.

Hydra's rattling is really annoying. Even with no wait, I only rode once. Like Talon, 2 trains were running.

I stopped at the Turbo Drop side of Dominator and went to Thunderhawk. 1 train running with 1 row closed off. I got a non wheel seat and had a somewhat smooth ride.

Steel Force also had 2 trains running, there was a 4 or 5 train wait for the front but otherwise you could pick almost any row. I got 2 rides and checked out Stinger's construction.


It is really going up fast, there is more track next to the ride and in the overflow parking lot.

Possessed was also a walk on, so I stopped there for 1 ride. Zephyr was closed and I wouldn't be surprised to see it closed for the rest of the season.

Many of the family rides like Road Rally and Monster had lines, nothing too long though.

One thing you can almost always count on at Dorney is short lines so it's nice to be able to know you can stop in for a little over an hour and still get a lot of rides in.
