Get Your Thrills on These Dorney Park Rides


Hydra the Revenge, named for the many-headed mythical monster, has risen from its battle with Hercules to take its revenge! This coaster goes up to 53 miles per hour, features a 105-foot drop, and turns the rider upside down a total of seven times.

Steel Force

When Steel Force first opened in 1997, it was the tallest free-standing roller coaster and the first to break the 200-foot barrier on the East Coast. It has been featured on the Discovery Channel “Top Ten Coasters” and for good reason: the height of the main drop is 295 feet… 54 feet higher than the Statue of Liberty.


Are you ready to get stung? Don’t worry, Dorney Park says. Riders will only be injected with a pure rush of adrenaline on Stinger. This ride reaches 55 miles per hour and features a drop length of 125 feet.


Talon is the tallest and longest inverted roller coaster in the Northeast.  Riders will reach 58 miles per hour in its ski-lift style seating.


With Dominator, you have a choice: you can choose to launch upward to reach 160 feet and then dropped back towards earth suddenly, or you can ride the Rocket Downward tower, which will slowly lift riders to its maximum height, 175 feet until they are thrust downward at faster-than-free-fall speeds.


Meteor gives riders the sensation of an inverted coaster loop, swinging them back and forth with a maximum height of 65 feet.


Possessed is a dueling-tower suspected impulse roller coaster, which will launch riders forward and backward. You’ll be comfortably sitting beneath 704 feet of track.


Revolution is a huge, revolving swing made up of an eight-armed ring of seats that face inward. Riders will swing 120 degrees in each direction and reach a nearly inverted position of 65 feet in the air.

White Water Landing

White Water Landing was opened in 1992 and at the time was the tallest, steepest, fastest, and wettest waterfall plunge ride in the world.  Make sure you have a towel stashed because both you and onlookers will get soaked.

Demon Drop

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be suspended atop a 10-story building? The Demon Drop is just what you need. The elevator-style ride builds on your suspense, inching towards the drop system before plunging the passengers. You’ll manage to drop 60 feet in 2.5 seconds.
