OMG!!! Talon was unbelievable!!! Words cannot even describe it! One of the best coasters I have ever ridden! Definitely a winner! And very intense too! I was dizzy when I got off!
The line for Talon wasn't too long, and it moved along very quick!
Hercules-for some reason it is missing a train! And the retracking or whatever they did to the turn over the lake did not do much, this was the only disappointment of the day! Sorry, I used to like it, but it just keeps getting worse. The brake at the top of the hill was on sooo hard that you were halfway down the hill b4 you started to pick up speed!
Thunderhawk-same as always, a fun little coaster, very short line too!
Laser-great! and intense as always, although it does seem to be getting alittle rough. Still a great ride though!
We didnt even bother with the Wild Mouse, cuz the 1 person I was with hates that ride! And sadly we didnt have time to ride Steel Force :(
We rode a couple flat rides(monster, enterprise, swings, & hangtime) and Skyscraper too. Also, down near the whip and monster, they are putting in a rock climbing attraction! That should be fun!
All in all, it was a grrrrreat day!!! Dorney really looks good! And I think I figured out what they are building where Chester was, it could very well be the EMPLOYEE CAFETERIA! YAY! lol :)

Talon is open already? Cool! Hopefully someone will put up pics & videos of it running. I'm sure Ridezone will do so.

Think you can find words to describe it at all? Specifically the trench of the Immelman, horizontal loop & being flung sideways just before the Flat Spin.

Does this mean Talon will replace the Batmen as the premier production model?

Ridezone already has pics of it running on the preview day. Talon is just pure awsomeness! You fly right through the trench, very cool though, and they don't even use that trim brake going into the Immelman. The inclined spiral was very quick and intense! And the turn b4 the corkscrew where you are parallel to the ground is just coolness! That turn was my favorite part!
Also, SIT IN THE BACK ROW! It is wicked! There are footchoppers everywhere! And the queue line is very nice, especially right when you enter it and there is all that steel around you! They also have tv's in the line playing music videos! And the landscaping is beautiful also! 1 Heck of a coaster! Moved right up to my #1 position! Pure AWSOMENESS!!!

Peace out!

Well before know know it Cedar Fair will have some very nice parks in its lineup. Dorney Park has had a lot of TLC added to it and now should be attracting a lot of people across the country. This inverted coaster simply looks awesome and I love how it has more than inversions for a good ride. This is the anti-gimmick coaster that Cedar Fair should be building more of.
sigh, SFNE goes "tiny" for 2001

I just rode Talon 3 times with my Dad. Fun Stuff. The line move really quickly, and we only wated about 15 minutes. This ride is awesome. It has so much more than a bunch of inversions and it is a very original design. I am a TLC! Ride TALON and be happy!
