Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom
Way back in 1860, Solomon Dorney built a fish hatchery to provide anglers a supply of fish. This "Fish Weir and Summer Resort" along Cedar Creek featured eight trout ponds. Ten years later Solomon added games, a playground, a hotel, and even a small zoo and renamed the place "Dorney's Trout Ponds and Summer Resort". The beginning of the 20th century brought a trolley line and a Dentzel carousel to the park. In 1935, Dorney Park introduced the Zephyr, a classic train that still takes guests on a tour of the park today!
Wildwater Kingdom opened in 1985. Cedar Fair, Ltd. purchased the park in 1992. Presently the park is spread over 200 acres of land.
Several coasters have been removed from Dorney Park:
Laser (formerly Colossus)
