Dorney Park Announces Stinger for 2012 Last week, Dorney Park confirmed the rumors of their new coaster for 2012 with the announcement of Stinger. The Allentown, PA park will be receiving California Great America’s Invertigo. It’s an inverted Vekoma shuttle coaster providing three inversions that riders will experience forward and then backward. The train’s seats are turned around so that riders in the middle of the train will face each other.
I’m sure that some Dorney fans would have preferred something a little bit larger, but at least the park is still growing. That’s a good sign no matter how you look at it. All parks need a good supporting cast for those larger main attractions like Hydra and Steel Force. And as I said in my recent Photo of the Week post, hopefully Vekoma and Cedar Fair have figured out the issues that has caused this coaster model trouble in the past.
