Places to Visit

Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom

Map3830 Dorney Park Rd.
Allentown, PA 18104
  • Amusement/Water Parks
  • Fall Fun


Families can go freefalling on Demon Drop, which unexpectedly plummets passengers more than 50 ft. in less than 2 seconds. Other thrill rides not to miss: the floorless Hydra rollercoaster, the upside-down Screamin’ Swings, and Talon, the tallest & longest inverted rollercoaster in the U.S.

For a more tame experience, relax on a swan boat ride or take a spin on the historic carousel. Be prepared to get wet in Wildwater Kingdom, where more than a dozen attractions offer opportunities for splashing, soaking & sliding.

Visit Planet SNOOPY, a transformation of the previous Camp Snoopy kids’ area, with all-new rides including Snoopy’s Sky Ride monorail and Flying Ace Balloon Race. Sip on root beer floats in a Soda Pop Shop, shop for PEANUTS souvenirs in the gift shop and meet Snoopy, Charlie Brown and other characters throughout the day in this kiddie area.

Accessibility Details

Those with special needs can sign up for the Boarding Pass program, which allows visitors to access rides via the exit ramp at specified times, avoiding lines. The park also offers a KidTrack wristband equipped with a security code that pinpoints a child’s location if she’s separated from the group.
