Not all places are found to be best
The Dorney Park was not up to the mark but can be said to be good if no choice. The place had accommodation but not enough place for the family. The Rooms seemed to be too small and no good service seen. The food was ok. Not places for enjoyment but games were satisfactory. All were paid by taking the entry ticket. Online service is slow but available. The process to go in is late and people will be busy inside and makes it irritating to wait for long.

It’s the first time I come to Dorney Park since they’ve added the Snoopy Park. The older ones that I already knew are the Water Park and the Amusement Park. I loved the rides in the park, especially the one called Possessed. If you’re visiting Dorney Park during the summer you should visit it in the morning, as it can get crowded quickly. I would avoid the park during the afternoon in the summer, there are just too many people around. If you have a family, definitely go visit Snoopy Park. It’s designed for kids and they will have a blast there.

Although Dorney Park takes a back seat to other Amusement Parks in the US, it is still a worthwile destination. And Wildwater Kingdom is a really nice Waterpark with some interesting and funny slides.
