It's been awhile since any changes, updates, ehancements, etc. have been done to the website. Are the operators planning on doing anything or should we just expect this to basically be a forum for Dorney? I'm not complaining at all....I actually completely understand as I once had a Dorney website in the early 00's and it was difficult to maintain with all of lifes increasing responsibilities.

There are a few reasons for this.

I have no intentions to return to the park any time soon. I haven't been very enthused by what Cedar Fair has done with the park (and company) lately, and have found that my time and money are better spent at other local parks. Without going to the park, I don't have much content to update the site with.

When I first created this site, the official site at dorneypark.com was pretty useless. It provided no look at what the park actually looked like. Today, the site is very different, and so this site provides very little information that the official site doesn't already have. That is why I am planning to transition this site to be more about interactive stuff like discussion and simulations rather than static information.

In that regard, I've been very busy working on a simulation for Themagical.nl, while they have been busy working on the Steel Force simulation for this site. After they are done, I will be creating a new sim for this site, and we will switch back and forth. Hopefully after the Steel Force simulation, new ones will be completed and added much more quickly.

I hear you on that, Josh. Yes, the DP website has improved and times are different now then they were when you started this site. You no longer work at the park and you are not much of a DP nut these days, I get that. Maybe we can reach out to the users for specific update and such. Maybe there can be sort of a scavanger hunt for new things. If you can/will not do it like you used to, someone should...
