 Review of Zephyr @ Dorney Park
0 Rating Posted by: Cyclonic on 3/29/2003 4:19:00 PM
This ride gets a higher then normal rating for a train ride from me due to its historical significance to Dorney Park. This is the ride that saved Dorney Park in the depression, and I am happy Cedar Fair has not removed it over the years.

During the time of the depression, people were looking for something to bring their spirits up, to give them hope. Burlington Lines had introduced a new streamlined train called the Zephr that created a nationwide sensation. Dorney Park relized that they needed something or the park would go under, so they introduced their own minature version of the Zephr. The train is also unique in that it has a gas engine that actually powers electric motors between the cars.
