Dorney Park 1990 Map Part 2


Here is the second half of that cool 1990 Dorney Park souvenir map. Plenty to see on this one, too:

• Groves all over! Lots of picnic groves still existed down around Thunderhawk, and where Steel Force's station now is.
• More defunct rides than you can shake a stick at - the old tower from the Rocket swings is standing, along with the Sky Ride and Laser.
• The Care Bear theater was still being used, with a Care Bear shop located right next door.
• Thrills Unlimited was still next to Wildwater, with it's Tank and Boat Tag, Indy Racers, and Mini Golf.
• The water park's old speed slides, along with the Torpedo Tubes were still in operation. (and the tons of slides added since are missing!)
• Half of the wave pool was still being reserved for boogie boards, going back to when the park hosted surfing competitions there.

Laser was spelled Lazer on the map. I think I still have s shirt wuth that spelling. Also, the Little Laser isn't pictured. I know they had akiddie coaster over near where TCM is at one time. Did they store it & bring it back later or did they get a new one? Any idea on a date?. Oh, and anyone remember the single body slide on the torpedo tubes? I rode it one time it was open & it was extremely intense.
