Steel Venom Roller Coaster Joins Dorney Park’s Lineup in 2008
We’ve known for months that Steel Venom was being removed from Geauga Lake. They mystery was which Cedar Fair park it was going to be shipped to. Coasterdom has reported that Dorney Park will be the new home of the Intamin Impulse Coaster. Dorney Park was among the other rumored locations that included Canada’s Wonderland (near Toronto) and Worlds of Fun (Kansas City, MO).

Steel Venom features a launch that propels riders 0 to 70 mph in a matter of seconds. It’s a short 704′ U-shaped roller coaster with a straight end and a twisted end. It will join Dorney’s strong lineup that includes the floorless coaster Hydra, Morgan hyper coaster Steel Force and beloved B&M inverted coaster Talon.

    When I first heard the rumors I was very disappointed. That was more or less do to the fact that I was positive a woodie was coming soon. Now that I think about it, this is a good addition to the park. It's small and packs a punch.I'm sure people will line up to ride it. It also will add another cool looking coaster to the park's skyline. Dorney doesn't have a ride that launches you yet, so this is further filling in its diversified ride collection.

    It's good to hear that you're happy with the Dorney Park's new coaster. Especially because it's your home park, right?We're definitely in the 'Launch Coaster Era', so it makes sense that a park the size of Dorney would add Steel Venom to its roster. I can see why you'd want a new woodie though. Does Dorney have enough room for a new wooden coaster?
