Coaster Madness Friday at Dorney Park

Monday, June 23, 2003 8:43 AM
Just wondering how many of you are going with ACE this friday to Dorney Park. I will be there and this is my first time at dorney. I have seen photos and driven past the place on the way home from new jersey but never got a chance to vist there. Anyone have some ideas or helpful hints about Dorney and what I should/Should not do. Thanks

I should be there for Coaster Madness. Our weather for Friday is sunny warm. That should mean the lines in the park should be light but the waterpark will be packed.

On the Thunderhawk keep your seatbelt tight if you sit in the third row of the first car. If you don't expect some bruises on the legs from the ejector air on the second turnaround. Hercules lean forward to save your back. Leaning forward makes the ride tolerable.

Be sure to check out Thunder Creek Mountain it's one of the better log flumes and you get pretty wet. Their rapids ride is good and you get soaked.

Signature will be closed today. Sorry for the inconveinance.

I'm going there as well, I have been going to Dorney since I was younger (about 12) every summer. It's a fun park! Not my favorite (now that I've been to CP even WITH TTD being down), but it is still a great time as long as the lines aren't long. Hopefully they won't be, but the kids are now out of school so who knows. But, yes, the waterpark will be P A C K E D!! I remember waiting 2 hours for the Lazy River. That won't happen again. I'll just stay at the reg. park.

For the record, Coastermadness is NOT and ACE event. Coastermadness, is a park sponsored event open to ALL members of ALL Coaster Clubs
never met a coaster I didn't ride (except Junior Geminii) :(

Like everyone has said already, since it is supposed to be so warm out, Wildwater Kingdom is going to be packed, and Dorney will hopefully be rather dead.

Coasterpunk hit most of it... since it's going to be so warm I definitely reccommend the log flume. As far as Hercules goes, do what coasterpunk said, and try sitting close to the front.

Hopefully the weather holds out; it should be a great day! I'll be there all day, getting tons of pictures for my site. Hope to see some of you there!

Talon, Shoot me an email. I am going tomorrow, and I don't have anyone to go with.

If anyone is going alone and would like to tag up and enjoy the day with someone else (like I do), then shoot me an email please. I don't like doing parks alone and all of my friends who were going, have all bailed. This thing called "work" got in the way for everyone. BAH.

So, Talon, or anyone else who wants to go. Shoot me an email at:

I am leaving here, Jersey, at about 4:30AM to get there by 6:30-7AM. I would love to tag with someone! I know I am probably writing this too late, but hey...ya never know. I'll check this email before I leave the house tomorrow morning.

Thanks guys,
