Dorney Park Wildwater Kingdom is known for their rides and they have a ton for you to enjoy! Their top roller coasters (those given an aggressive thrill rating of 5 on their site) are; Hydra, Possessed, Steel Force, Talon and starting in 2012 their new addition, Stinger. Don't stop after the roller coasters! Dorney Park also offers thrill rides. Also using their aggressive thrill scale, Dorney Park's top rides are the Demon Drop and Dominator. The Wildwater Kingdom has a water ride rated as their aggressive thrill in the Thunder Canyon.

Now that you know the top rides at Dorney Park Wildwater Kingdom, tell us which one you plan on enjoying. 

Six Flags Great Adventure has what many consider the ultimate ride in all of amusement parks, Kingda Ka. This roller coaster is surely unique. It's the tallest coaster in the World and the fastest in North America. If you want to go 0 to 128 mph in 3.5 seconds then you'll love this thrill ride. Kingda Ka rockets you up to a 456 foot apex and then shoots down vertically through a spiral twist moving faster than 100 miles per hour. It's not over yet, you'll then face a near 130 foot tall hill which will bounce you out of your seat for just a few seconds. 

Do we still have your attention!? Now you can prepare yourself for the new attraction at Six Flags Great Adventure in 2012. We introduce to you.....the Sky Screamer! The Sky Screamer is a new swing ride sensation that will take you 24 stories off the ground. When it reaches full swing, you will be able to hit speeds of 40 mph in a 98-foot circle. Imagine enjoying Kingda Ka and Sky Screamer in one day. You could do it!

If you don't like roller coasters, there is plenty else to do! Dorney Park ​has an amusement called Dinosaurs Alive along with Planet Snoopy. They also have various of live entertainment shows. At ​Six Flags​, there will be events along with entertainment for you to enjoy!


Thrills. Roller Coasters. Excitement.
