WOW, i had a really fun time at Dorney park, it is now my favorite amusement park along with SFNE.

On day 1: I got there around 10:00 and we parked in the front and were one of the first people to get there. We bought 2 day tickets.

We then headed to Steel force first and got in 4 rides in the morning, sweet way to start of the day. I think i got one ride in the front and then i got one ride in the back, i was the only one to go near the back. There was no one inline for the ride in the morning, 4 walk on rides. That is where we made the mistake, we should have headed to talon first because the lines were long there.

Then we headed back and got a couple of rides on Dominator red, but i wouldnt go on green. I was scared the first time, but it was really really fun.

Then i think i got in a ride or 2 on talon. I LOVED THIS RIDE SO MUCH, but the line was long. so i didnt ride it that much that morning.

It was getting really hot out, so I went on White water landing, fun but the brake kinda hurt.

Then i went over to Hercules. It was ok but i dont know if i would do it again, it is a little to insane for me and i have back problems and that didnt help. But it wasnt as bad as i thought it would be.

We ate something for lunch at coasters. I got a burger, and looked at the cool pictures they had of CEDAR POINTS wooden coasters. We sat next to Mean streak, well we had no choice, that was the only table available.

Then we went on Thunder canyon, you get really really wet on this ride.

I went back to Thunderhawk, and i think this was worse and more rough then Hercules.

Then off to laser, probably the worse coaster in the park, i couldnt stand it, it was rough and made me sick. I think they should tear it down and put in a boomerang. That is pretty bad.

Then I went on SF again 6 times, were there was a kid that said he was the B&M king or something like that, and he was talking to his friends. Iam like, YAHH, that is was i sound like. LOL.

I went one Dominator red again a couple more times and then i went and got Subway.

I then went to the Music express thing.

THen i went back on Dominator red again 4 more times.

Then we went on the log flume ride.

It was getting dark, so i went back to talon and finished the day off with 8 more rides on that and one in the front.

On day 2: i got there around 10:00 again.

On day two i started out on Dominator red first because talons line was getting to long. I rode it 2 times.

Then my parents went over to the water park and i went on talon 6 times and the line was pretty long too.

Then i headed over to the waterpark, went on the one of the lazy rivers, then the ride that was built into the hill, and then i went in the wave pool, for sometime.

Then i went out to the car to eat lunch.

Then i went back in and hit SF 2 times.

Then Dominator red 6 times.

Then i went on talon 2 more times

Then we went back on thunder canyon.

I went to get Sunscreen and a dominator pin and got an icee and a souilvener cup.

Then i went back to Dominator red 2 times again

Then i went back on talon to finish the night off again and rode on it 9 time and 3 times in the front.

I had such a get 2 days there, 27 rides on talon, 20 on Dominator red, and 10 on SF. The lines are great there.

ya know,,,,,,,,I was actually following you until you said Thunderhawk was worse and rougher than hercules, then you continued by saying they should tear down the laser and put in a stupid, generic vekoma boomerang? All I have to say to that is BITE YOUR TONGUE! You call yourself a rollercoaster enthusiast? eeks Any true enthusiast has much respect for Shwartzkopf and his incredible forceful rides such as the Laser.

First of all, it is Laser, not Lazer. Second, how on earth can you think Laser and Thunderhawk are rough? Laser is not rough in ANY WAY... I'm sorry, but I have no idea how you could possibly think that. And Thunderhawk rougher than Hercules? Uh, no. Not a chance. One last thing, White Water Landing has no "brake," just a chain on the lift, splashdown, and conveyor into the station.

Well because laser throw me side to side, and i thought that was roughness.

I only think that is bad about hercules is they it kinda hurts your back and you kinda get thrown around, i think it is talked about worse then it really is. THUNDERHAWK just throw me around the whole ride, i think it is the worst ride there buy far.
