Dorney Park and WildWater Kingdom!

Let's finish off the summer with a blast of fun! Lets plan on spending most of the afternoon at Wildwater (put out your intentions for a heat wave!) and spend the rest of the day seeing how well we handle the roller coasters (not so well for me these days, I may have to hit some kiddie rides :)

I'm looking into discounts on tickets. We need a lot of people for the group discount, but there are many other discounts and coupons out there. Online price (both parks included) is around $40.

I'm tentatively having us meet there outside the gate at 11am. Anyone who want to carpool, please meet at my place in Horsham. We will determine an exact time as it gets closer.

    Hi, Greg, Is this still on?? I thought per our conversation yesterday, that it was not?? If that's changed, please let me know, OK? Please call me at: (215) 750-7362. I'd still consider going, will just have to know the price of the online tickets you were going to get, as I didn't buy the others at the Township offices, as you'd said this was off. Please let me know soon, thank you.

    There is supposed to be a thunderstorm around 7, after the water park closes. Partly sunny most of the day. I called the park and if a T Storm hits they close the rides, then reopen after it passes. No big deal. I say we go. Parking is $15 so its to our advantage to car pool. Only issue is some (me) who want some quality time with rides. If we arrive at 1100 or so, I don't need all afternoon at the water park so I would like to see if 8 is possible to leave. Id a storm hits around 7, most likely we'll take off. What do others want? Anne needs to know.

    Anne I called and left a message a bit ago. People keep dropping out for various reasons so I'm not sure if we're definitely going. As far as I know the online price is just a big of a discount as the municipal prices so don't worry about getting them this morning

    August 30, 2013

  • anne

    Greg, So what's the final decision, please? IF I'm going to be able to come, I have to buy the discount ticket this MORNING...I've been waiting to hear...but...IF I can't go very soon, I will NOT be able to get over there to the Township Office, to buy it, later today. Thank you!

    Everyone, I checked today and the Water Park hours, now and for the rest of the season, are: 11:00 am - 6:00 pm, every day. The regular park's hours are: 10:00 am - 10:00 pm. Just so everyone knows. Also, I THINK parking costs $15.00/car, too.

    August 29, 2013

  • Ken K.

    I want everyone's needs met but I don't want us tied to a 6 leaving time. I see water park as lots of mid-late afternoon and rides until 7 or 8. Not 10 or later but...

    August 27, 2013

    • Greg C.

      Anne, hold off until Friday morning and I'll know if the weather looks good, if we are definitely going, and if you will have to drive yourself or not. Thanks!

      August 28, 2013

    • anne

      Hi, OK, Greg, that's fine. Thanks. I'll just have to go and buy the discount tkt. on Friday, then, if we go, so please let me know early, as they are only open during business hours. Thank you!! If I do drive myself, I'll need your phone number, please, to call and find out where you guys all are, to make sure I do find/meet up with you all, once I get there. Is that OK?? Will you please send it?? I'll also have to find out how much parking costs, and see if I can still swing it, financially, if I do end up driving alone. I hope I can! I LOVE Water Parks!! I think the weather's gonna be OK. I'll wait to hear from you.

    A possible T storm is predicted but even if it happens it will blow over. You have to buy online. Otherwise its $10 more apiece. I talked to the park and groups of 4 get $2 off. I get a senior (my computer doesn't seem to work with this so I may need help,) But if anyone else is 62 then the 4 won't work. One person has to do the buying for 4 and will get reimbursed. So for the 4 it would be $37.99 apiece (and tax if any, it may be included.)

    August 27, 2013

    • anne

      Just want to make sure we'll still go, (and that the water Park will still be open, which it should be, usually!), if there's some rain, as I want to buy the discount tickets at the township parks and rec dept., that I mentioned. But, they're non-refundable and non-refundable and only good for 2013, so I want to know we'll still be going, before I do. The last day to buy them would be this Friday. I wouldn't want to go by myself, so please let me know if we'll still be going, even if the weather isn't perfect. I'd do that, but need to make sure the rest of you would, BEFORE I but it!

      August 28, 2013

  • anne

    Everyone, like I'd mentioned before, you can get the discount tickets at many township's parks and recreation offices. I know that Bristol, Northampton, (Richboro) and Warminster offices have the adult Dorney Park tix for $37.00, total, no tax or anything above that, just $37.00. But, we do have to get them during their business hours and they're non-refundable. I buy these EVERY year, for several parks and events, and they're great. They're non-returnable, and for this year only. There may be other town's that also sell them, there probably are, I just know of these 3, as I've brought them there and just looked them up.

    August 28, 2013

  • Greg C.

    Let's meet at my place at 9:30 in the morning. As the weekend gets closer we can figure out buying tickets ahead of time and see what discounts we have. Anne, we'll try to work something out, and I believe your other event is close to my place. For the rest who are coming, do you think you'll have your fill by 5:00 or so, or do you want to stay into the evening? The water will be too cold, so unless you're a big roller coaster fan, I'm thinking we could be out of there by 5:30.

    August 27, 2013

    • anne

      Thanks, that's a great idea. I'd gladly leave early in the morning, but do have to leave to come home early, too!

      August 28, 2013

    • anne

      Thanks, Greg, so you know, I have to be back by then, as I can not go straight to my other event, I have to go home first, as there's something going on at my pool, for Labor Day weekend, and I have to stop in there for at least a few minutes first, as I'm part of the planning for that. Also, someone from there is coming with me to my other event. That's why I have to be back between approx. 5:00-5:30 pm, possibly by 6:00 pm at the latest, but that's pushing it.

      August 28, 2013

  • anne

    Greg, I'm trying to come to this, what time are people meeting at your place, please? Also, does anyone want to carpool (from your place OR anywhere else reasonable), and leave the park about 5:00 pm, or between 5:00--6:00 pm at the latest, probably by 5:30 pm?? If so, I'd love to carpool w/someone, I just have to leave by then due to other plans afterwards. Greg, do you think anyone meeting at your place would want to leave by then?? Or, not?? If so, I could carpool w/them. I live in Bensalem, so anywhere reasonable to there, we could meet, if not at your place. If not, I'll probably have to drive myself, but need to know/start to figure this out, as I don't really know if I can come, if I have to drive myself, and pay parking (and gas) by myself, as well as the admission ticket...so I have to figure this out soon. If anyone can carpool w/me, please CALL me at: (215) 750-7362. Thank you.

    August 27, 2013

  • Ken K.

    What time do we meet at your place?

    August 23, 2013

  • anne

    Thanks, Greg, I haven't figured out the time yet, as I don't remember how far Dorney is from me. I'd also have to figure out how far it is from where I'm going later, or from your house, if that's where we meet. I will check on all that and let you know. I know I have to be back by around 7:00, at the latest, give or take a little. I'm going to Warminster later. If it's earlier, that's fine, too.
    I'd love to carpool and split gas/parking costs/etc., if anyone also is planning on being back early. I usually stay until the very end, but this time, I can't, as I do want to go to the other pool party, too! I would go straight there once I get back from my car, as it's also a pool party, so going in a bathing suit from the water park is fine! Thanks!

    August 23, 2013

    • Greg C.

      My place is right near Warminster. Dorney is about an hour from me. Who knows, maybe we'll al be done by 6.

      August 23, 2013

  • Greg C.

    Anyone who wants to meet at my place to carpool is welcome. Anne, what time do you plan on staying at the park until?

    August 23, 2013

  • anne

    OMG, I just decided to definitely COME to this, and RSVP'd, then, just realized it's the same day as a Pool Party, at an organizer's house, with one of my other groups, and that I'm already going to that. But, that's late in the day & goes into the night, and I had already said I was only going at night...CAN I just come for the daytime, and just go to the WATER PARK, with you all, then leave early to go to my other event?? Please let me know, thanks, I'd love to still come!! Thanks!

    August 22, 2013

    • Greg C.

      You are welcome do whatever fits your needs, and if you can do it all, go for it... you just may have to drive separately :)

      August 22, 2013

    • anne

      Hi, OK, Greg, Thanks!! I'm gonna try to do that, then. IF anyone else is going only for the water park and leaving after that, and wants to carpool, please let me know!

      August 22, 2013

  • vicki m.

    What a great idea Greg, you rock! Don't know if I can go yet but hoping to. I'm with you on the coaster scene, probably hang at the water park.

    August 19, 2013

    • anne

      Though I like Roller Coasters, I'd stay at the Water Park the entire time that is open, then go on the WATER rides in the regular park, mostly, before anything else!

      August 22, 2013

  • anne

    I LOVE this place, especially the water park!! I'm HOPEFully in, but can't honestly be sure yet...depends on if I have the money closer to then!! Not working much, for low on money, but will try, as I LOVE this place! Some of the local townships sell discount tickets to this, and you do NOT have to be a resident of that Township to buy them. I often buy from Richboro, (Northampton Township) and occasionally Bristol. Don't know how much they cost that way, as I haven't inquired this summer, (for the FIRST time), but call soon, as they sometimes run out and don't get more, this late in the year!
    IS there a way to just buy the Water Park, and NOT the theme park, at Dorney?? Been here many times, but don't remember, but I'm thinking maybe no?? IF so, how much is just the water park, please? That may be better for me to do! This place is fun even if the weather isn't "Perfect!!"

      One price for both

      August 19, 2013

    • Marnita

      I may need two tickets... I will let you know....out of town visit.

      August 19, 2013

  • Ken K.

    Weather looks to be about 80. I'd wait to purchase tickets online to see if weather holds. Online price is $40. Seniors (62+) are $30.

    August 19, 2013

  • Marnita

    Try and leave me....ha! I'm in!!! Would love to carpool...Let me know!!! Hoody hooo!!! Fun!
