Not the GCI we want, but this is the best announcement in years. That is assuming the Bumper Cars are Ninjas.
This also begs the question, is this a replacement for Carousel and/or Food Fest Grove?

My exact thoughts. I think Carousel and Food Fest Grove will be removed. I think they are going to put a dark ride in that area.

I agree, this is great for DP.

I wonder the same about the other food groves?

Also I thought catering was going down by SF turn around but It looks like it's going behind WWL.

I'm glad to see bumper cars returning. They have been missed since Krazy Kars were removed.

Great additions and improvements. It would make a ton of sense if the new Parkside Pavilion means the removal of Food Fest and Carousel groves. New location is much better (more central in the park when taking WWK into account), and it opens a huge area in the middle of the dry side that's currently dead for new things.

So does this mean mansion house will be gone and/or moved down to old Asylum location or desolution area.

Dorney park PR tweeted that Troika (Kaleidoscope) will feature a awesome light package. Now hopefully there will not be the same dead and stuck pixel issues like the Ferris Wheel has.

Platinum passes have the same early purchase/renewal price for the last few years.

A couple changes compared to past years is that the park is only open until 6 Tuesday - Thursday the last week of May and Monday - Thursday the first week of June and WWK open until 8 on Fridays in July and 1 in August.

Those weekdays in May and June were usually empty the last few hours the park was open after the school groups left but I can't remember WWK's closing time the same as the ride side's closing time.
