I Rode My First Rollercoaster at 26!
Thank you to Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom for providing us with complimentary admission in exchange for this blog post. All opinions expressed belong to me =)
A couple weeks ago I FINALLY had a day off from work and was able to take a day trip with my boyfriend and friends to Dorney Park. We went on a perfect day, being a Tuesday (which Dorney recommends on their Trip Tips page) the wait time in line was MAYBE 10 minutes the longest.
I was excited, but secretly terrified all at the same time LOL. I had never done the rollercoaster thing. The last time I went to an amusement park I was in ...... EIGHT grade? Soooooo over 10 years ago. And even then I was too chicken to ride any rollercoasters. I was excited, it was my boyfriend and my 6 year anniversary and I was ready to face my (for nothing) fear!!
If you can't tell by the name, Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom are two separate parks, in one location. They have the majority of their water rides separated from the dry rides still allowing you to get the best of both worlds. Saisha and I were ALL READY for the water rides, but the guys weren't as thrilled. After two rides (and the two of us spending some time in the kiddie area LOL) they were ready to go to the other side of the park.
When we first got to the park The Talon was being worked on and we didn't think we would get to ride that particular roller coaster. It ended up being the last ride we went on and my favorite from the entire day. I'm glad I got over my fear, tried something new, and enjoyed the experience with some of the people I love the most! I can't wait to make another trip to Dorney!
I ended up taking most of pictures on and of the actual rides on SnapChat (follow me) and forgetting to save them, my boyfriend also was convinced his phone case was waterproof, took pictures, and the phone didn't survive to share LOL. So sorry for the stock image of the coaster but the one below has part of it in the background!
What's your favorite amusement park? Do you have a roller coaster fear? What other parks should I visit?
