Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom has announced more details of their 2021 season, which now includes more days and hours to play.  Originally the park planned to stay closed on Tuesdays throughout the summer, and hours included closing at 7 pm each day.  Now the park will stay open 7 days a week once it moves to daily operation on June 16th, and hours during the summer season have been extended to a 9 pm closing each day!  Night rides here we come!  Dorney Park will open for the season on May 22nd, and Wildwater Kingdom will open on May 29th as previously announced.

The park is excited to open Seaside Splashworks when Wildwater Kingdom opens on Memorial Day Weekend.  The brand new beach-themed multi-level play structure is sure to keep families busy for hours during their visit.  Guests visiting Wildwater Kingdom this year will need to make a reservation beforehand, though reservations are not needed to visit Dorney Park.  Reservations for the waterpark will go live on May 3rd at 10:00 am on the park's website.

Dorney Park is also excited to bring back Grand Carnivale, which will take place at the park starting in July.  The event features a celebration of food and culture from China, France, Germany, India, Italy and Spain "through authentic food, music, dance, and performances, along with the “Spectacle of Color” electro-light parade."

To bring all the fun to life the park is looking for new associates to join their team.  The starting wage for most season associates has been raised to $12 an hour, with life guards starting between $13 and $14 an hour.


“We’re excited to bring back the fun this season – and now we have even more fun to share with our expanded operating calendar,” said Michael Fehnel, vice president and general manager at Dorney Park. “With additional operating days and extended hours, we will need additional smiling faces to help us deliver the fun!  Seasonal associates play an instrumental role in delivering on our commitment to creating memorable experiences for all our guests, safely.”
