Wildwater Kingdom


Amusement Parks

Dorney park originally began as a fish hatchery in 1860 and was owned by Solomon Dorney.  Years later he decided to create an attraction and added games, rides, food and even a zoo.  As time passed, and owners changed, the park grew as new rides and attractions were added.  In 1985, Wildwater Kingdom was opened offering water activities for children and adults.  Today the park has approximately 200 acres and 100 rides, games, restaurants and attractions for the entire family.   Click here for History of Dorney Park.

Dorney park has a variety of rides to pick from ranging from mild to wild.  The rides at this terrific amusement park  include water rides, family rides, kiddie rides and thrill seekers -- including many roller coasters.  Dorney is home to a magnificent antique carousel, a 90-foot-high giant gondola ferris wheel and a miniature train that takes riders on a scenic trip.

The park also offers photo opps with Snoopy and his Peanuts friends, the official ambassadors of the park.  In addition to all the rides Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom offers shows, live music,  one-of-a-kind shops, challenging games of skill as well as irresistible food.



Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom is located in Allentown, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania.  It is approximately one hour from Philadelphia and 90 minutes from New York City, Southern New Jersey and Harrisburg.   It features roller coasters, kid's rides, and one of the largest water parks in the country.

Doorney Park gives you two great parks for the price of one.  It has grown into a very popular theme park with Wildwater Kingdom taking its place as one of the top waterparks in North America.


Entertainment at Dorney...

The park offers a variety of award winning entertainment.  You will find that there are shows to see throughout the day.  So if the sun is too hot or the kids need a break you can find a show that will entertain them for a while.  The kids will enjoy the Peanuts Camp Snoopy Show, and the Peanuts Meet & Greets where you can take pictures with your favorite characters.  In addition, Center Stage features a variety of high energy musical reviews where sensational singers and dancers dazzle the crowd. Dorney hires actors and actresses from local colleges like Ursinus, DeSales University, Muhlenberg, and Lehigh Valley  to perform in these spectacular broadway-like shows.

Rules and Regulations

  • You must be wearing shoes and shirts to enter Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom and they must be worn at all times while outside of Wildwater Kingdom water park, except while riding Thunder Canyon and White Water Landing. 

  • Guests are not permitted to bring food into the park. 

  • Pets are not permitted in Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom. Only guide dogs and service animals are permitted in the Park. 

  • Smoking is restricted to designated areas located conveniently throughout the Park.

Seasons at Dorney

Dorney Park is open on a regular basis from May 1st through November 1st and Wildwater Kingdom is open Memorial Day through Labor Day with varying times.

In the Fall the Halloween season is one of the best times to visit Dorney Park.  For six weekends leading up to Halloween the park is transformed into a haunted playground and the attractions are open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night. Dorney Park's kid friendly Boo-Blast is an event for the entire family with fun kid's activities up until 5 pm. During this season after 6pm is not recommended for children under the age of 13.  Freaks and zombies greet you at the gate and then seem to lurk around every corner just waiting for a victim.  Be sure to bundle up because a cold night turns a lot colder when you are riding a roller coaster.
