Through the end of summer, families can plan a discounted trip to Pennsylvania's Dorney Park themepark and adjoining Wildwater Kingdom waterpark with their combined “Stay & Scream” travel promotion. The popular amusement park is a major family attraction in Lehigh Valley, home to the cities of Allentown, Bethlehem and Easton.
Through this online promotion, visitors receive discounted admission tickets, save money on 21 participating hotels (you choose on their website), and can enjoy both parks over multiple days rather than rush through them in a few hours.
Your family will want to stay at least three nights because there is so much to do. Home to the one of the largest collections of water attractions in the country, Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom is the only place on the east coast where families can visit Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the PEANUTS gang at Planet Snoopy. This season, Dorney Park introduces a three-acre Dinosaur Park with 32 animated creatures, and Stinger, the only suspended boomerang inverted steel coaster on the east coast with face-to-face seating. We hear that Stinger propels riders through six inversions at speeds reaching 55 mph.
Check out the video below for a first look at Dinosaur Park:
In addition, Lehigh Valley visitors can explore a multitude of other area attractions, including; The Crayola Experience at the crayon capital of Easton; the DaVinci Science Center, Lehigh Valley Zoo, Lehigh Valley IronPigs baseball team (Phillies Triple-A affiliate); ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks; many regional golf courses; and seasonal events such as fairs, festivals, historic sites, museums and much more.
To take advantage of the promotion, visit www.DorneyDeals.com and review the hotels. Once a selection has been made, contact the hotel and book an overnight getaway to Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom. Stay & Scream travel packages are valid from May 26 through September 3, 2012. Rates are based on availability and are subject to change.

A brief sidenote: Dorney Park appeared in the local Lehigh newspaper, Morning Call, this past May for standing by its no-tattoo policy and denying employment to applicants with tattoos!
