Please make note of the deadline (May 11) and the fact that there is no on-site registration. The park prefers we distribute tickets before the event, so we have to mail them out. The positive side is that you can at least show up whenever you want (though you don't want to miss lunch).
Also note that if you are using your season pass, you must indicate the pass number and park on the registration form.
As usual, we can take checks, money order, Visa, MasterCard and Discover.
I was gonna get my pass validated that day also... guess I'm going to have to change plans. But then again some early season Talon rides could be the cure for the winter blues! Dorney opens May 7th and registration is due May 11th. Can you say FEDEX since I know the US Post Office will not make it from NJ to OH in 2 days.
Do you have a problem with us calling the park individually to see what they're willing to do about season pass people? I don't want to undercut you as the event planner or anything.
I don't understand why it's required? If people say they're going to use season passes, it's not like if they're lying they can get in the front gate? If they don't get a pass, they just have to buy a full-price ticket and that's their bad luck, as they'll have to pay even more? Just doesn't make sense to me.
My guess: anyone holding a non-dorney pass normally has to visit guest services to get a comp ticket. The GS agent writes down the pass # and home park, and prints a comp ticket. Since DP wants to distribute tickets in advance, they need the pass numbers to write the comp tickets.
Perhaps they'll allow Jeff to register people without printing the tickets in advance? If so, that solves this problem, I think.
I have never attended one of these, but I am really thinking about going to one of these. The price of $34.00 seems really reasonable and Dorney is one of the parks that I have not gone to and have really been considering. Now with Hydra opening, I am going to have to see if I can find someone to go with me.
I just renew my pass online each year and choose to use the picture they have on file. Last year I had my DP pass in time to take with me to Solace. Anyone that is just renewing should use this option.
