020306-006.jpg (104858 bytes) As part of ACE's EastCoaster event held every year, Dorney Park invites enthusiasts for an off season tour of the park.


This years tour took enthusiasts into the park's Maintenance facility where the coaster cars and other rides are rehabbed.


The staff explained the Winter maintenance regime, and what goes in to keeping the rides safe and running smoothly.


Thank you to the staff of Dorney for letting us tour the facilities!
