I grew up going to Dorney as a child, and it is my favorite park! I love the app all except for the fact that it doesn't have all of the same info as on the website. That part doesn't bug me too much, but when you go in to the rollercoasters tab, Posessed has a picture of Hydra. That can make it really confusing for people who don't know the park yet. Besides that, it's an amazing app!
Wasn't a big fan of previous version so update has done a good job BUT have now lost the ability to access my season pass info so I can "scan". I already have season passes & it appears that unless you buy a t key or pass thru the app, you cannot just enter or log in. Need to either create a passholder app or add the feature to add your tickets for scanning. The interactive map & friend finder are a nice touch - if it works. Will have to see on that.
I downloaded the app to assist me in chaperoning a school trip. While it was helpful in navigating the park as a first-timer, I found the directions function buggy / laggy and the wait time information downright inaccurate. Directions would often change / flip around when we weren’t moving. Talon was listed as a 5 minute wait the entire time we stood in the queue for 28 minutes.
It should not take this long to get on rides. The rapids was a joke.. they put two people on at a time to ‘keep families together’. The wait should have been no longer than 15 minutes from the amount of people there but it took almost 45... not okay considering the amount of money spent to get in to park...
Nice that there's an app with the listed if the rides and the locations, but definitely A LOT of improvements needed. Wait times on the app for each ride and a distance from where you are in the park would make the app 10x better.
I like the electronic ordering but it took over 10 mins to receive my order 1 burger & 1 chicken sandwich at the pick up window. Not crowded, no excuse. Park is clean. Park map is confusing to locate. Using the iPhone app to navigate
Calendar only has hours for dry side. Attraction info I s old, obsolete, and has nothing about the new addition to Wildwater kingdom. Calendar colors make it hard to determine open days from closed days (both are represented by blue blocks that are very nearly identical in hue). Events links always say "No Events", even on July 4th. The worst part is the app has been like this since I first downloaded it last year. I'm about to delete it because it seems like it's in a perpetual alpha stage of development.
This app is great for looking up quick facts or info. It is also very user friendly and has a nice easy to search layout, but the only problem is there isn't as many things as there is on the Dorney Park website. Otherwise I give this app a good 4/5 stars
Useless map. Doesn't help you find anything. Car finder is almost useless. It does show your current location and you car's location, but no directional information, i.e, the only way you know if you are getting closer to or further from your car is to walk a while and see if the dots get closer together or further apart!!! Other amusement parks have far superior apps.
Finally, an App for my favorite park. I love it. One idea. We should be able to put markers on the map. Just click and drop them anywhere. Then we could name the markers like "Favorite Restaurant" or "Best Ride."
Except for purchasing tickets, this app is useless. The map is congested. When you click a ride, it gives no info but lets you pick a "route" which is driving directions from Google that make no sense. There are no wait times, no menus, no updated ride info (ie it would have been nice to know that Steel Force was down before trekking all the way across the park).
I go to Dorney Park all the time in the summer. I've never had any issues with the app. Sometimes my little brother asks me if he can go on rides alone, and I check the app beforehand. It simplifies my summer. I highly recommend this to you.
1. Doesn't show hours of operation anymore. As a parent this was extremely useful. 2. Calendar feature either isn't in use or is broken. No events all year! 3. Haven't used friend finder. Nice if it works.
"Friend finder" has said my friend has been in the exact same spot for 6 hours now when in fact he's been all over the park. And FYI there's no wifi here so you'll be eating up your data while you're in the park trying to get their app to work.
