As an Allentown apartment resident, you've known that you reside in one of the coolest cities in the nation for some time now. After all, the cheesesteaks are arguably even better than Philly's, the rent is affordable, and you live literally minutes from the one, the only, Dorney Park.
To call this amusement park enormous would be an understatement - close to a dozen rollercoasters alone call Dorney home (including the record breaking 200+ foot drop of Steel Force), not to mention dozens of other rides and attractions. Allentown residents can cool down in the summertime by splashing over to the adjoining Wildwater Kingdom, which is chock full of both thrilling excitement as well as the usual lazy rivers. Best of all, both parks are included in one package price, doubling your fun before you even walk through the gates.
Feel free to act the clown alongside Charlie Brown, as Dorney Park is sponsored in part by your favorite characters from 'Peanuts'. Live music performances, seasonal Halloween hauntings, and even ice-skating performances all come alive at Dorney Park, making it one of the most affordable one-stops for entertainment in all of Pennsylvania.
So whether you're looking to just have a few hours of fun before heading home to your apartment, or plan to make a weekend package out of your experience, Dorney Park is a serious feather in the cap of any Allentown apartment resident.
