Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom Culinary Series

I remember as a child going to a lot of theme parks and carnivals during summer break.  My parents would pack food and we would get in the car and make some amazing memories.  I was excited when I got to partner up with Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom on this adventure.  My kids have never been to Dorney so this was bound to be a good time.  We decide to surprise the kids on the way there. 

Once I spilled the beans they kids were ecstatic.  Upon arrival we got our tickets and map.  My kids are 7 and 8.  My daughter has always loved roller coasters and thrill rides.  My son on the other hand has always been scared.  But that day it was different.  Out of nowhere he wanted to try something thrilling.  They are too small for the big roller coasters but Dorney Park has the perfect area for littler ones that are just as fun for them.  We headed to Planet Snoopy and our kids enjoyed every ride there.  My son even went on his first little roller coaster called Woodstock’s Express, which I have to say was a lot of fun and had a little thrill to it.  After that my son was set on going on everything.  The fear just like that went away.  It’s amazing how fast we as adults forget those moments as a child. The thrill of just enjoying the little things.  After going on a couple other rides throughout the park we decided to eat some food.
