What is Dorney Park's Rain Policy? | Easily Explained

When you're visiting a theme park, rain is one of the few things that you can't control, that can still impact your experience.

In this page, we will go over what Dorney Park's rain policy is, whether they offer refunds in the event that it rains, and how to prepare for the rain.

What Happens if it Rains in Dorney Park?

In Dorney Park, the park remains open when it rains. If it is a light shower, outdoor rides will remain open but if the rain begins to pick up and/or thunderstorms are on the horizon, outdoor rides will temporarily close.

They will open back up when the weather is suitable to continue.

The rides that will naturally be affected the most by severe weather are the outdoor rides.

When it rains, the park will monitor the weather and re-open rides accordingly as the weather improves.

Dorney Park Refund Policy

Dorney Park has a 'Weather Guarantee' policy, which means if the majority of the main rides have a weather delay for 90 minutes (consecutively), guests will be eligible to return in the future without needing to pay for a new ticket.

The way it works is the visitors affected will have their ticket reactivated for a future visit.

However, the guest must return (and use that ticket) during the same season that they received the complimentary ticket.

Preparing For the Rain

Our Poncho Choice

Poncho's in particular are very cheap, and very worth it.

This unisex, lightweight reusable poncho has worked wonders over the years at dozens of theme parks.




Our Umbrella Choice

The most reliable umbrella that we've used over the years has been the Repel Umbrella.




The main reasons are that it's:

  • Wind Resistant - Won't Bend or Fold During High Winds
  • Portable - Easy to Put Away After Use
  • Only Takes 1 Button to Open and Close
  • Non Slip Grip Allows For an Easy Hold Even During Severe Storms
  • Can Be Used For Both Men and Women 

Many visitors are prepared for the rain when they come to the zoo, but they forget about the wind!

Don't overlook the fact that there will be plenty of wind if there's rain.
