It is always a good day when my girls hear that we are going to Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom. Do you have those memories as a child? I am very aware of how my girls will remember their childhood. I remember the occasional visit to a theme park during my years in middle school. It always made my summer more memorable, doing something our family did not do as often.
Families with Young Children
When we first started planning on where to take our kids that was local, we were not quite sure how Dorney Park would fit the needs of a family with young children. When it comes to attending a theme parks, it really is not about the adults but more for the kids. Since we started visiting Dorney Park last year, we have not been disappointed with our visits. In fact, the park grows with us as our girls get older.
Our girls have enjoyed Snoopy’s area with age-appropriate rides and even this year my youngest, age 2, could ride several with her sisters and some with me and my husband. Wildwater Kingdom is so much fun with little ones because they love water so much! Parents can easily monitor kids in Wildwater Cove while taking in some sun. It is really fun to see many firsts with my girls, especially with them riding their first water slide. My almost 6 year old was the most disappointed that she could not do the older kid rides. Oh well, there is always next year. She is growing fast.
Fun New Activities
I can always count on some new event that is going on at Dorney Park. Whether it is for a good cause like Lemon Days for Alex’s Lemonade Stand or Food Trucks with a well-known chef, there are always special events, new rides, or new shows.
Here are a few new things:
o Dodgem: Back by the popular demand of Dorney Park guests….bumper cars! Get behind the wheel of this midway classic and take a crash course in family fun.
o Kaleidoscope: A circular ride sending guests on a counter-clockwise trip of weightlessness and acceleration. Riders will experience weightlessness, strong accelerations, and side-to-side movement on this new ride to be located on the main midway. It’s scheduled to open in Mid-May.
