About Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom
Dorney Park offers some of the most exciting thrills available around Allentown. What's more, they've been doing it for more than 100 years. Founded in 1884, the amusement park today features roller coasters, water rides, Planet Snoopy, and family-friendly attractions. Take a closer look at some of the attractions at this historic location:
Planet Snoopy: Right in the middle of the park is a kid-friendly, Peanuts-themed area featuring the pint-size Woodstock Express roller coaster, miniature stock cars racing in the Peanuts 500, the spinning Camp Bus thrill ride, and Charlie Brown's own Kite-Eating Tree.
Roller Coasters: Counting the Woodstock Express, the park boasts seven roller coasters ranging from classic wooden-frame rides to modern mega-coasters featuring drops of more than 200 feet. Make sure you check out Thunderhawk, the modernized descendent of the park's very first coaster built in 1924.
Wildwater Kingdom: In the summer, the water park shows off its 450-foot-long water slide, an enclosed chute with four 360-degree loops, an all-ages climbing zone with fountains and splash zones, and the lazy Runaway River, which drifts past whirlpools, waterfalls, and tunnels.(Wildwater Kingdom open Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day.)
New for 2020: Seaside Splashworks! This new family attraction will feature more than 75 play elements to engage the entire family.
