Lightning Falls Water Slides at Dorney Park

Park: 11 AM - 7 PM Waterpark: Closed View Hours
Lightning Falls

First impressions are important, and that’s why this slide complex is the first one to greet riders as they make their way out of the Locker Rental area into Wildwater Kingdom. This mammoth 70-foot tall water slide complex makes a statement with the two “striking” intertwining tubes of Lightning Falls and the double camel hump of Cascade. Grab a single tube and challenge your friends to see who can make it through the adrenaline-inducing twists, turns, and tunnels to the 4-foot deep splash pool below. The name “Lightning Falls” isn’t by coincidence, as riders will experience lightning-fast speeds as they make their way down the tube slide. Opened in 1990, each slide is more than 450 feet long and takes its riders through twists and turns that can only be experienced on Lightning Falls. This attraction can supply an adrenaline rush of pure thrill and excitement for riders over 54” tall.

Guests must be 54" tall in bare feet to ride

Maximum Weight – 275 lb. per rider

This ride accommodates one single rider per tube.
