Essential Information

3830 Dorney Park Rd.
Allentown, PA 18104


Families can go free fallin’ on Demon Drop, that unexpectedly plummets passengers more than 50 ft. in less than two 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.

New in 2015: Take to the skies inside an “eagle,” suspended 28 feet in the air, with the Cedar Creek Flyers family attraction. As the eagles swing outward and move upward, riders control their flight experience with a personal carriage paddle.

KIDBIT: Camp Snoopy, the section for tots not big enough for big thrills, is newly refreshed and contains 20+ kiddie rides.
