ALLENTOWN, Pa. (WHTM) — Dorney Park opened for its 139th season on Friday, May 12.

The park, which is one of the country’s oldest amusement parks, first opened in 1884 and features the 99-year-old coaster Thunderhawk.

“We had an incredible pass preview event on Sunday, and I cannot wait to welcome more guests for Opening Day on Friday,” said Jessica Naderman, vice president, and general manager. “This is an exciting year for Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom. We have an awesome event lineup to carry us through the season and we’ve added some tremendous shows that are sure to delight adults and children of all ages.”

Along with the rides and attractions that guests have come to enjoy, the park is also featuring new entertainment offerings, such as a Peanuts Block Party and a show featuring throwback party anthems.
