SOUTH WHITEHALL TWP., Pa. - It's a sure sign that summer is on its way: Dorney Park officially opened Friday morning.
Gates opened at 9:30 a.m. for season pass holders, and 10 a.m. for everyone else.
Early in the morning on opening day, the rides were being tested and the park was being readied.
New things for the 2014 season include a full time chef, a food truck, and the Chicken Shack restaurant. There are also new meal plan options, and special memorabilia for the 130th anniversary of the park.
"We just want to make sure everyone comes out and has a good time this weekend and this summer, and we're looking forward to making sure everyone has some family fun," said Carrie Basta Stoltzfus, communications manager for Dorney Park.
Wildwater Kingdom opens on May 24th, and will feature the all-new Snake Pit, which is still under construction.
