Iron Menace Roller Coaster Trains Arrive at Dorney Park

Dorney Park, renowned for its thrilling rides, is buzzing with excitement as the Iron Menace roller coaster has officially arrived in South Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania. This highly anticipated addition marks a significant milestone for the park.

A Glimpse of Arrival

The park’s public relations team captured the exhilarating moment when the Iron Menace train was gently unloaded from a trailer on a Wednesday, igniting the anticipation of adventure-seekers.

Construction in Full Swing

Simultaneously, construction is rapidly progressing on the coaster’s first inversion, the Immelmann assembly. This pivotal stage in development showcases Dorney Park’s unwavering commitment to providing unforgettable experiences to its visitors.

An Epic Journey Unveiled

From the Immelmann, the coaster’s construction team will proceed to assemble the barrel roll, followed by a groundbreaking tilted loop – a first of its kind.

Words from Dorney Park’s Manager

Ryan Eldredge, Dorney Park’s Communications and Public Relations Manager, expressed his excitement, saying, “It has been so exciting to watch the Iron Menace construction process unfold.

A Historic Addition

The Iron Menace, the Northeast’s first-ever dive roller coaster, is set to open in 2024 and will be the first new coaster at Dorney Park in 19 years.

An Unforgettable Ride

Riders embarking on the Iron Menace will commence their exhilarating journey amidst the remnants of an old steel mill. They’ll ascend 160 feet, hang over the beyond-vertical first drop, and then dive into the first of four mind-bending inversions.

With nearly 2,200 feet of steel track, this awe-inspiring roller coaster boasts a unique “hold and dive” element. Riders will find themselves suspended on the edge of their seats, eagerly anticipating the heart-pounding 95-degree, 152-foot drop.

Unprecedented Speed and Loops

Reaching speeds of up to 64 miles per hour, the Iron Menace introduces the first-ever tilted loop on a dive coaster. After the initial drop, the train sharply pulls up and executes a 180-degree Immelmann inversion. A zero g-roll delivers a 360-degree inversion in a weightless frenzy, while the tilted loop and a 360-degree corkscrew spin leave riders in awe.

Prepare to be part of history and embark on an unforgettable adventure filled with twists, turns, and heart-pounding drops as you experience the Iron Menace at Dorney Park.
