    Hi,
    I'm looking to get season passes as my son needs to be in the area twice a week for a pole vaulting class this summer. Being I'm a disney freak I'm also obsessed with saving money or paying less if at all possible. is there any discounts on the season passes?

    can you take the cost of a one day ticket and apply it to the season pass? My costco offers discount tickets and I was wondering if you could apply that to a season pass? I know at disney you can purchase a discount ticket and then get the full price upgrade at the park. I was wondering if anyone has done this at dorney? crazy question I know but I was just curious! :)

    There are no discounts that I'm aware of. We bought DS14 a season pass in May & I searched then & there were none (there had been a $10 savings if you purchased online at one point in May but it's now expired).

    I highly doubt they will apply the one day pass to a seasonal one but you could always ask. We've been going to Dorney our entire lives & the customer service leaves A LOT to be desired. You can't even begin to compare it to Disney!

    thanks so much, I totally agree! I"m 3rd generation in my family going there.. My dad and grandfather went there as kids! I miss the good old days when the park actually had a road through the middle of it and you can picnic and no admission! I now have to go out to Knoebels once a year to get a taste of that old time feel!:lovestruc I'm not a fan of the park anymore but it just makes sense if I'm driving an hour for my son's lessons to roll some fun into it as well. thanks for the info, I didn't think they had any deals but figured it was worth a shot. :) thanks again! :)

    Yeah remember those times when you knew just about everyone in the park & it was family friendly? We used to have work picnics there - nto like today where you have to rent a huge pavilion - we just took coolers of food & drink in to the picnic tables & no one bothered the stuff when you left to go on rides! Those days are long gone, but my kids love the place.

    I'm only a few miles from Warren & P-burg!

    I am just a week off a Disney vacation, and heading to Dorney tomorrow for a company picnic. I am not expecting a lot. :rotfl2:

    I live less than 5 minutes from Dorney and go there as infrequently as possible.

    OP - sorry I can't answer your question about the pass. As Tara mentioned, there was a season pass promo earlier in the season, but that is no longer running.

    OP - just was @ Dorney yesterday, and they had signs all over the park that you could upgrade to a season pass for $69.99 with a paid admission ticket from that day. So you can certainly apply the one-day ticket to your pass! HTH!
