Here is a Thunderhawk refurbishment update! Below are some photos of Thunderhawk getting re-painted on March 9th. The re-painting of Thunderhawk is definitely looking amazing and making the coaster look new! Also, on March 1st, the signage on Thunderhawk's new trains were installed. Thunderhawk is truly shaping up to look amazing once again! 8)

Below is a photo of the all-new for 2017 Dodgem at Dorney Park nearing completion in time for opening day. On the other hand, the Kaleidoscope (Huss Troika) has still yet to arrive. But,Dorney park expects to have the ride constructed and operating by mid-May. The Dodgem is located where Hangtime (Huss Top Spin) had previously operated (1998-2014) and Kaleidoscope will operate where Screamin' Swing previously operated (2005-2015). 8)
