Tilt-a-Whirl at Dorney Park

Skip to Next Section


A Spinning Thrill For Everyone.

If you like spinning then this traditional park ride is for you! Hold onto your lap bar and prepare for a whirling and twirling, spinning joyride. Spin around on a revolving platform that also moves up and down while your car pivots individually around the track. Tilt-A-Whirl offers a different and unique experience every time so you never know if you will spin a lot or a little. Try not to slide into your friends or family because this amusement park classic won’t ever let up the centrifugal force of a relentless spin. The original attraction opened in 1949 and began to show signs of wear and tear by the 2001 season. Instead of completely getting rid of the ride it was replaced by a newer version in 2002! Each car can hold three or four people so grab your friends and family and hold on tight on the Tilt-a-Whirl!

Guests must be 46" tall to ride alone OR be accompanied by a supervising companion. Hand held infants are not permitted.

  • This is a circular ride where cars pivot by centrifugal force created by the ride's rotating table.
  • A shared lap bar secures all riders in the row across the thighs and pelvis.
  • Guests must have a minimum of three functioning extremities.
  • Two functioning arms are sufficient instead of three functioning extremities if the guest has a normal center of gravity and lower extremities are sufficiently strong to maintain proper riding posture under the dynamic conditions of the ride.  Amputations must be at the knee or below.
  • Guests with a cervical collar, neck brace, broken collar bone, or braced arm cast, are not permitted to ride.
  • Guests who do not demonstrate appropriate observed behavior must be accompanied by a supervising companion.
  • Alternate access is available at the ride exit. Riders will have to take several steps, on their own or with the assistance of a companion, and be capable of stepping up and over the side of the ride unit.
