Pennsylvania Vacation - Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom

June 19, 2013

After our 5 days in WV, we drove 5 hours northeast to J-Ma and Papa Pete's house.  After a day of relaxation and recuperation, we headed out to Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom!  We started our day at the little kid area, Planet Snoopy.

We stepped right onto the first ride.  Duncan snuggled up with Daddy...

...and Elsie and Eddie sat together.

Then we hit the kids swings.

Since this is a ride that spins in a circle, Aunt Becky had to accompany Duncan on this ride.  Mommy wasn't allowed to ride, since she was pregnant, and Daddy gets way too nauseous on the spinny rides!

Duncan is now 36," so he was able to ride some of the rides without an adult!

Whee!  Hot shots not holding on!

There was a great kids roller coaster that Elsie and Eddie enjoyed without an adult.  Papa Pete squeezed on with Duncan, holding his head the whole time to make sure it didn't slam into the car!  While Elsie and Eddie enjoyed a ride that was too big for Duncan, Mommy and Duncan checked out the waterfall.

  Another spinny ride, so Aunt Becky rode with Duncan.

After the helicopter, we headed off to the parking lot to enjoy our picnic lunch, and then took ride around the carousel - just the right speed for J-Ma...and they finally let Mommy on a ride!!!

Then we were ready too cool off in Wildwater Kingdom.  We relaxed in a lazy river and Duncan and Mommy splashed around on a splash pad while Elsie and Eddie hit a water slide!  Then it was time for the big kid rides!!  While Duncan napped peacefully in the stroller, Elsie and Eddie rode on some of the bigger kid rides.  At 42," Elsie wasn't tall enough to ride the roller coasters yet, but could ride all of the adult spinny rides.  Daddy even took Elsie and Duncan on a spinny ride while Papa Pete and Becky rode the roller coasters!

Our last ride of the day - the log plume ride!  Daddy, Elsie and Duncan all took the great big plunge!

Wet kids climbing out!

"Mom, I am soooo wet!!"

 It was a great day - we were there for 9 hours!!!  The kids had so much fun, there were no lines, and the weather was perfect.  We'll definitely be back again in a few years!
