Dorney Park Reopening Protocols

When Dorney Park opens, we want you to have an AMAZING day and feel safe when visiting, so we developed an extensive coronavirus reopening plan – new processes and enhanced procedures throughout the park to help reduce the spread of germs. We’re all in this together and by working together you can safely and confidently enjoy the thrills, giggles, and endless smiles that only Dorney Park can deliver.  

This page provides you with essential information for what you will need to do before you arrive at Dorney Park, what you’ll see and experience when you arrive, and how to make the most of your visit—safely—when you get here. 

Changes from Last Season: 

  • Reservations are only required for visiting Wildwater Kingdom Waterpark. Both Season Passholders and Single Day Ticket holders will need reservations in advance. Single Day Ticket holders that purchased prior to May 3, 2021 will only need to make a reservation to visit Wildwater Kingdom and can make a reservation to visit Wildwater Kingdom Waterpark here. A reservation is not required to visit only Dorney Park. Single Day Tickets purchased on or after May 3, 2021 are dated and park-specific and do not require an additional reservation.
  • Temperature checks for guests have been discontinued at the front gate. 
  • There will be no limitations to ride capacity.

You do not need to complete a health assessment questionnaire prior to arriving at the park. While planning your trip to the park, please take a moment to self-assess for any potential COVID-19 symptoms. Please reschedule your visit for another day if you or anyone in your group has been exposed to or experienced any symptoms of COVID-19 within the past 10 days.

If everyone in your family or group has been exposed to the person who has symptoms, it’s best if everyone in your party stay home and reschedule your visit. 

When You Arrive

Both Season Passholders and Single Day Ticket guests will need to make a reservation prior to visiting Wildwater Kingdom. Guests who are not planning to enjoy the waterpark during their visit do not need to make a reservation.  

If you arrive at the park without a reservation and wish to visit Wildwater Kingdom, please see Guest Services to inquire about availability. We will accommodate you if possible, but there is no guarantee. 

Guests will not be required to complete a health screen questionnaire. While planning your trip to the park, please take a moment to self-assess for any potential COVID-19 symptoms. Please reschedule your visit for another day if you or anyone in your group has been exposed to or experienced any symptoms of COVID-19 within the past 10 days.

The health and safety of our guests and associates remains our top priority. After consulting with medical experts and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we have decided to discontinue temperature checks, except where required by state or local jurisdictions. The pandemic has shown temperature screening will not be completely effective because individuals who have no symptoms associated with COVID-19, or those with mild non-specific symptoms, may not realize they are infected and may pass through screening.

One of the things we’ve learned in this pandemic, and it’s been talked about a lot over the past year, is that a lot of people transmit the virus with no symptoms or fever. As noted above, the pandemic has shown temperature screening will not be completely effective because individuals who have no symptoms associated with COVID-19, or those with mild non-specific symptoms, may not realize they are infected and may pass through screening. As more is learned and understood about COVID-19, guidelines and recommendations from the CDC and others have evolved. 

When You're in the Park

Yes, all rides and attractions will be open unless there is inclement weather. 

According to the CDC, it’s important for everyone to continue using all the tools available to help stop this pandemic as we learn more about how vaccines will affect the spread of COVID-19. The CDC also said it’s still evaluating reinfection risks. While relatively rare, reinfection has happened, and the virus continues to spread and develop variants, some of which have been more contagious than previous strains. 

Children under the age of two and guests who are fully vaccinated are recommended but not required to wear face coverings. Also, under provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), guests who cannot wear a mask due to a medical condition will not be required to wear one.

Per our normal operating guidelines and in compliance with the CDC, we are routinely cleaning and sanitizing our restrooms throughout the day.

You may exit and re-enter the park. You will need to show your re-entry ticket to enter again. 

You are welcome to stay as long as you like until the park closes for the day.

BY VISITING THE PARK, YOU VOLUNTARILY ASSUME ALL RISKS RELATED TO EXPOSURE TO COVID-19

We have taken enhanced health and safety measures - for you, our other guests, and our associates. You must follow all posted instructions while visiting the park. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the CDC, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.

If you are exhibiting any COVID-19-related symptoms, you should not enter or remain in the park.

Help keep each other healthy.
