Dorney Park Fun Facts #27

Although it overshadowed everything else (literally), Steel Force was not the only addition to Dorney Park in 1997. The new 'Main Midway' as it was called has been created in 1996 beyond the main entrance, although no rides, shops, or anything, really, was located on it at that point.

The Funzone Arcade was built in 1997, but like it's friend Steel Force, it wasn't quite ready on opening day either.

^ The weather didn't look too great on opening day, 1997 - here we see the Funzone still under a lot of construction.

^ A lot of work was done in the week between photos, eh? Still not ready to open yet, but a lot closer.

And then poof we're ready to go!
