 Review of VooDoo @ Dorney Park

While I entered the park, I was astonished to see such a huge roller coaster, otherwise known as Voodoo, tower the skyline. It was a magnificent sight, the supports was colored with a shimmery turquoise, and the trains were colored yellow; it blended in with every other coaster at the park. As I came closer to it, I witnessed the powerful launch it has, as it rode through the two spikes, and down again at a speed of 70 mph. After riding some of the parks other coasters, I decided that I should give this one a shot, and man, Im sure glad I did!
The first thing that I noticed, were the nicely created trains that it had. They werent as nice as Steel Venoms, but the crimson red blended in with the yellow track. As I sat down onto Intamins comfy seats, I waited for the launch... three, two, one... and BAM! The train burst out of the station with excessive speed, going up to 70 miles per hour, as it went up the first twisted spike. All I could see is the sun covering the horizon, and a part of the track sticking out in front of me. The train crept up slower and slower, until it was going down in the opposite direction. Once again, the train was rushing down the spike with an unbearable speed, it was taking forever, but seconds later, the train exited out of the spike, and back into the station, being launched again at a faster speed. All I could see is the peoples heads looking down at us, but it wasnt long until we were out of their view. Once again, we were suspended over the ground, and going up the other spike, with no twists. We were able to see the parks other rides, such as Steel Force, Revolution, Laser, and Thunderhawk, but the view wasnt there for a long time. We were coming down again, and hanging out of our shoulder restraits, but the train was back on the ground once more, gripping tightly to our bodies, and dragging them back against the seat. We were thrusted again at a faster speed, and we went back to the twisted spike, this time completing the twist that we never completed. With only a small remainder of the track left, we came crashing down to the station, going through it, and back into the vertical spike. At the top, a series of brakes held on to our train forcefully, so that we were hanging helplessly on our shoulder restraits, with screams filling our ears. A moment later, the brakes let go of our train, and we were coming back down to our destination, but the train didnt stop yet, it went through the twisted spike once more, and as we rocketed back to the surface, the brakes came out, and stopped us from our escape.
Voodoo was a great ride in my opinion, even though its not the best in the park, and I would give it a 9/10, just to be fair. Cant wait to ride it again!

Solid review Penguin 35. VooDoos definitely an interesting prospect as its the only inverted impulse coaster in PA. Im looking forward to riding it within a couple of weeks. I rode Wicked Twister at Cedar Point 3 years ago, so I kinda have an opinion of how the rides going to be. It might not be as intriguing as WTs double spikes, but it still should be fun nevertheless.

Yeah, I never rode WT, but I can tell that theyre both fun rides. Voodoo doesnt have double spikes and its not as tall, like you said, but its still a great experience to ride it, especially with the brakes holding you up at the top! Have fun.
