Rock n Roller 16: Dorney Park and Kennywood

It was just a couple hour drive from New Jersey to our next stop on the tour, Dorney Park. This park was part of the Cedar Faire family along with Cedar Point and a later park on the tour, Kings Island so it was added late in the planning stages when we decided to get a season pass.

After last night’s Rob Zombie concert we woke up early with our ears ringing. We had to be at the Enterprise Rental Car place at 8 over in Littleton and pick up our truck to start our journey.
