SOUTH WHITEHALL TOWNSHIP, Pa. -

Saturday has been circled on the calendar for many kids and grown-ups who are kids at heart.

It was opening day at Dorney Park.

Thousands of people stormed into the park to experience some of the attractions including the new Dinosaurs Alive attraction, and the newest coaster; the 138 foot "Stinger".

"We think we've set records of season pass sales the couple years and we just think that's an endorsement once again of the local community and the great entertainment offering here," said Bernard Bonucelli, Vice President of Operations.

Wildwater Kingdom at Dorney opens on May 26th.
