Park News - (2/6/16) In one of the craziest things I've ever seen the local news reports that Dorney Park and the local police are trying to identify a group of four young people (2 male, 2 female) caught on park security cameras who broke into the closed theme park at night and somehow climbed to the top of the 200-foot Dominator tower ride to remove a blue and white Dorney Park flag. You can see the images caught by the security camera here.
(1/21/16) Dorney Park has posted artwork showing off the new 3-Bench PTC trains they will add to the park's Thunderhawk coaster in 2016. The artwork shows off a dark redish looking train with gold trim along the top of the sides as Train "A", along with a note that Train "B" would feature the reverse color scheme. It also mentions that the coaster itself will be painted a sharp white color (as opposed to the more creamy off-white it is now).
In other news, Dorney Park appears to still be having some issues with OSHA over employees and heat issues. Give this local news article a read to see more details.
(12/1/15) According to a post at CoasterChitChat, Dorney Park has confirmed that they are getting brand new PTC trains for the park’s Thunderhawk coaster in 2016. It seems there was some brief confusion about these being the new PTC-360 style trains, but they are not, they will be regular PTC trains.
(10/19/15) Dorney Park has been granted preliminary approval (final approval still needed) to build two new catering pavilion structures that will take up the space currently used by the Speedway ride. A new pump building will also be built between the Club Blood and Waterwater Landing attractions as well.
2016 - No new attraction has been announced yet for Dorney Park in 2016. It seems this may be a year to focus on internal improvements and attraction upgrades.
