Boarding Pass Program
Currently at Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom we offer a Boarding Pass Program for individuals who may be overwhelmed by standing in crowded lines. Guests who are in possession of a Boarding Pass can obtain a boarding or “ride” time on the Boarding Pass that is equal to the anticipated wait time for a particular ride from the ride associate at the Alternate Access Entrance (usually a ride’s exit). Guests can then choose to rest comfortably away from the queue area, visit a shop, see a show, or play a game until their boarding time. Please visit Guest Services during you next visit and ask about our Boarding Pass Program.
In addition, we offer a Multi-Sensory/Calming Room located in the Family Care Center inside of Planet Snoopy. This dedicated space provides tools for family members or care-givers to intensify or reduce sensory stimulation in a controlled environment.
Dorney Park also offers free Sensory Packs, which are available to sign-out daily from Guest Services and the Family Care Center. Dorney Park’s Sensory Packs include items that will reduce stress or sensory triggers such as noise reducing ear-muffs, shoulder weights, fidget toys and more.

- We also recommend that as an added safety measure you take a photo of members of your party, (especially if you have a member in your party who tends to wander off) on your mobile device. This photo can be great assistance to quickly reunite your party if separated.
- We offer disposable ear protection you may pick up at Guest Services.
- If you have any doubts what-so-ever about an attraction’s appropriateness for the individual with ASD, we suggest you have someone in your party ride first to make an informed determination.
