Dorney Starts Its 125th Season

© The Morning Call

Today marks the 125th opening day that Dorney Park has had in its long history. That long history, in fact, makes it the 5th oldest operating amusement park in the United States, a pretty hard title to come by.

The park is hosting a ton of special events this year to celebrate the milestone, and the local paper, the Morning Call, has also joined in by launching a special online section honoring the park.

There's some really great history to be found in the photos, facts, and articles the paper is featuring. Any fan of the park will want to check it out. The local news station also did a piece on the anniversary and spoke with the park's Chuck Hutchison, you can see that here.

Weather permitting we're visiting today, so be on the lookout for a report sometime this weekend!
