New for 2015 Dorney Park announces “Cedar Creak Flyers” Manufactured by Larson International in Plainview, Texas.
Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom, the center of summer fun and family entertainment in the Lehigh Valley, will be adding a new family ride, barbeque dining experience and All Season Dining program for season passholders as part of its plan for the 2015 season.
The Cedar Creek Flyers will be added to the lower section of the park across from Stinger. This unique experience is an updated version of a classic thrill ride. Riders will sit in one of eight “eagles” suspended from arms 28 feet in the air. As the ride spins, the eagles will swing outward – and riders have the unique opportunity to control their flight experience from mild to wild!

Closed circuit TV showed the truck arriving with the back full of passengers at 9:30am. The man has been freed on $20,000 unsecured bail.
