New Rides, New Shows & more coming to Dorney Park in 2017


Dorney Park announced today that they will be adding two new flat rides to the park, Kaleidoscope and Dodgem.

  • Kaleidoscope – Manufactured by HUSS, it is a circular ride with three arms of seven gondolas moving counterclockwise against the ride’s main clockwise direction. Riders will experience weightlessness, strong accelerations, and side-to-side movement.
  • Dodgem– Back by the popular demand of Dorney Park guests…bumper cars! Just when you think you’ve got a clear path, BAM!–there’s someone you didn’t dodge. Get behind the wheel of this midway classic and take a crash course in family fun.

Dorney Park will also be receiving Cirque Imagine for 2017, a 30-minute live show, perfect for families and guests of all ages, features acts including Trampolines, Cyr wheel, Aerialists, Hand Balancing and Bikes.

The park will also be adding a new dining pavilion called Parkside Pavilion, which will be a catering facility for corporate, school, church and other group outings and will be able to hold over 2,000 guests.

Wildwater Kingdom will be getting 17 new cabanas for 2017 as well.  These new cabanas will feature private seating/lounge chairs, cabana-side food and beverage service and numerous other amenities. Wildwater will also be getting a new bar called Sunset Beach Bar.
