    Types of Parking

    There are three types of parking available at Dorney Park, including:

    1. Regular Parking ($30)
    2. Preferred Parking ($40)
    3. Handicap Parking

    1. Regular Parking

    Regular parking is exactly what it sounds like, as you'll park in the general parking area of the park, on a first-come, first-served basis.

    During the busier seasons, you may be directed to park in specific spots by the staff to better accommodate all guests.

    This will also facilitate being able to leave the park.

    As the park fills up throughout the day, the parking spots will as well, which means the later that you arrive at the park on a busy day, the farther you'll be parked from the park entrance.

    2. Preferred Parking

    Preferred Parking is an upgrade from regular parking, as it allows you to park in a reserved spot, closer to the entrance.

    If you're planning on being at the park the entire day, chances are that you've also done a ton of walking.

    After a long day at the park, you may not want to walk back to find your car.

    With Preferred Parking, you'll be able to exit the park and end up very close to your park.

    This will also expedite being able to get on the road and head home or back to your hotel, as you won't get caught in the lines of cars trying to head out.

    Preferred parking is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

    3. Handicap Parking

    Handicap parking is reserved for those that are handicapped, and is the same price as regular parking.

    There are specific spots around the park, and closer to the entrance that are reserved handicapped spots.

    It is also available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
