After a long drive of 3 hours and 15 minutes me and my mom(with nephew) turned into Dorney Park. The coasters will be in the order of how many laps I did on the coasters.(least to greatest)

Hercules 1 lap

I give up on this coaster, I've been waiting for improvement, but nothing has happened. Except this time it was mid section pain, not a headache.(probably from the location front seat)

Thunderhawk 1 lap

I've rode this ride too many times before, I knew what to expect, so it was pretty boring.

Wild Mouse 1 lap

This was a slower ride, but still pretty fun.

Laser 9 laps

This coaster was just too great to pass up, considering it was a walk on both days. It didn't matter where I sat, because everytime I would blur out for 5-10 seconds after the second loop.

Talon 10 laps

Come on, you call this a ride? I could ride this in my sleep. I found Talon disappointing, the front seat IMO wasn't great, but the back was the better seat IMO on this ride.

Steel Force 27 laps

Some people call this ride a great fluke, I find Steel Force to be the best coaster at Dorney. Why? Simple, because of the location, speed, intensity, and floating airtime. Sure the mid course slows you down, but to me it adds to the experience, but we all have our opinions.

So here is how I rate the coasters:
1-Steel Force
5-Wild Mouse

Comments: The crews at all the coasters were quick and did a nice job of getting the riders on and off the rides.

Why do you hate Talon so much? I know it's fitted in a small area, but why? Seriously??!!! Talon looks awesome. If you want to "put down" coasters, go to Six Flags Elitch Gardens. You'll have a "grand all time."

Your signature says, "Dorney Park is da bomb." So if you think it's "da bomb," why do you hate Talon when you say the park is awesome?

I was at Dorney on monday. I don't know how you could have possibly rated Talon so low. It is shorter than some inverts (Raptor), but that really doesn't matter--it more than makes up for it in the quality of the ride. The trench is a very cool addition and the heavily banked dip turn right after the drop under the lift hill is simply awesome. The helix right after the corkscrew is incredible! As for "riding it in your sleep" I'm sure that's possible since this thing is super-smooth as well as nice and quiet.

Talon > Raptor in my opinion

Steel Force was the coaster that bored me the most. It was fun for the first time, but after that, it lost most of it's appeal. The turnaround could have been more creative, but I really did enjoy the airtime. It's just not a ride that I could ride all day on.

Ok you want me to put down Talon, here is my truthful opinion, Talon was boring, slow, and not anywhere close to intense. It was a tame ride, because I didn't have a fuzz out, like on Steel Force or Laser, so the ride was g-less.
