    Happy Birthday Coaster Justin
  2. Usually they start selling passes for next year the same day as the ride announcement which I think is typically the last Thursday in August or the Thursday before Labor Day.

    Dorney Park July 18 2018

    Cedar Creek Cannonball was closed when I was there last week as well. It was open today. I noticed the slow dispatches at Thunder Creek Mountain as well. It was around 45 seconds per dispatch compared to 15 seconds at Hershey and around 20 seconds at Great Adventure. Getting 4 Aquablast slides is great. I like the slide but rarely ride it since they added the no single rider policy. Last time I was at the slide, the lifeguard at the entrance almost didn't want to let me get in the line as a single rider until I asked if I could just wait at the top until there was another single rider or group of 2. I'm kind of surprised they didn't just close Cedar Creek Flyers until Haunt when more people will be in that area. It seems like most of the time there are only a couple of riders per cycle or less with most people not walking down to that area of the park after Stinger was removed.

    Kennywood Removing Log Jammer

    The coaster looks great. Kennywood could use another coaster with inversions besides Sky Rocket. I really like the idea of an whole area themed to a sports team although I'm not a Steelers fan (I live in Steelers territory even though Pittsburgh is 4 1/2 hours away). It should be really successful in Pittsburgh since Steelers are such a big deal there and Kennywood seems more of a locals park compared to a lot of other parks. I'd like to see something like this tried locally but I don't think it would work as well with Great Adventure and Dorney both getting so many visitors either New York or Philadelphia sports fans. It would be the same with Hershey and also the addition of Baltimore and Washington D.C. sports fans.

    Dorney Park, 7/11/18

    It would be nice to see something in that spot next year. That area of the park seems so quiet with just Cedar Creek Flyers around. They were ok, better than my last trip. The lifeguards were at least attempting to have as many slides as possible used each cycle, like at Patriot's Plunge when a bunch of people wanted the blue slide, the lifeguard asked others further back in line if anyone wanted the red or white slides.

    You Know What Really Grinds My Gears?

    That's really crummy. I haven't had that happen with a post but it happens all the time on eBay where others steal my descriptions and pictures. eBay does nothing about it and you aren't allowed to watermark photos or add text to any image.

    Dorney Park, 7/11/18

    I went to Dorney for my 3rd trip of the season. I was also there 3 weeks ago but didn't feel like writing a trip report after it wasn't such a great trip. This visit to the park was better. It's a shame that Cedar Fair didn't copy the Busch parks and add a traditional body slide on the same platform as the drop box slides as once again at the slide platform, people decided not to slide, some just looking at the drop box capsule, others after they stepped in. Runaway River had all the waterfalls and most of the other water features turned off. Thunder Canyon was using all 6 loading areas with 3 people checking seatbelts and they needed it since it had what looked like around a 30 minute wait. Operations at Talon were better with little to no stacking. Steel Force was having slow dispatches and no one at the Fast Lane merge point meaning if you wanted to use the Fast Lane entrance, you had to force your way into the line right before the station. I tried the new Burrito Cantina near Dominator. You can customize burritos or nachos and I can imagine when it's crowded, the line moves slow with how long it takes with each item a custom order. The food was good and better than a lot of the other dining options in the park like Coaster Dine In near the front of the park. I was at the arcade getting a voucher from the ticket counting machines after spending $1.00 at some coin pushing machine. The first machine jammed up and when the voucher printed it has Kings Dominion listed. I go to the other machine and on that voucher it prints out Great Escape Lodge as the name. They couldn't even bother to get the correct park name printed on the vouchers. I should have gone to the other machine and seen what park name would print out on that voucher and it will be interesting when I go to redeem the vouchers, if they tell me they are from another park. Unfortunately, prize choices this year are really limited. Usually there are some items with sports teams logos on them, nothing like that this year. I didn't ride too many dry rides on the ride side since I focused mostly on the water park and water rides.

    Dorney Park, Wooden Coaster For 2019?

    Screamscape is now posting that the image of the layout is fake. ☹️ I'm afraid it's going to be another disappointing year when Cedar Fair announces their 2019 additions and Dorney goes another year without a new coaster.

    Great Adventure 6-28-18

    That's awesome you got so many rides in 1 day. I'd like to be able to try something like that but I have never gotten more than around 35 rides in 1 day. One trip to the park after 11 Nitro rides, I had enough. To combine that with 19 water slides must have been exhausting. I know when I go to Dorney and climb over 1000 steps in the water park during 2 - 3 hours, I don't feel like riding more than a few coasters later in the day.

    Coliwood Studios Ohio Valley Coaster Trip 2018

    Have fun, that's a lot of great parks to visit on a 7 day trip.
  15. http://screamscape.com/html/dorney_park.htm I hope after 10+ years of rumors that the park would get a wooden coaster it will finally happen. I'd rather see a RMC but at this point I am ready for a new coaster that isn't a relocated and low quality or unreliable that I'd be happy if it is a GCI.
