Dorney Park unveils new dinosaur attraction roller coaster

SOUTH WHITEHALL TWP., Pa. - Dorney Park has unveiled a new part of the park that's 180 million years in the making.

Park officials on Tuesday took the wraps off the new "Dinosaurs Alive!" attraction in South Whitehall Twp., Lehigh Co. The three-acre attraction features 32 animatronic dinosaurs.

Dorney also unveiled a new roller coaster, called "The Stinger." The scorpion-themed coaster is the only suspended boomerang coaster on the East Coast with face-to-face seating, officials said.

"We try to hit the different groups, the families as well as thrill rides, and this year we were able to actually do both," said Jason McClure, vice president, Dorney Park. "Dinosaurs Alive! is a great family experience, and Stinger is just a tremendous thrill ride."

Park-goers can check out the new attractions this weekend when Dorney opens for its 128th season.
