This was my second ride of this type, and like Aero 360 at Kennywood, I absolutely loved it! I dont know what it is about these types of flats, but they just flat-out deliver some of the best riding sensations around! Meteor, first of all, looks fantastic with the bright colors and "fireballs" adorning the structure, especially when lit up at night. The crew works really well and efficiently on this too, so waits are pretty good for a ride that notoriously can have slower wait times (at least Aero does sometimes). The ride cycle is just right for Meteor as well - plenty long, but not too long to cause riders to get sick. The speed on it is excellent, the forces are superb, and the hangtime is diabolically wonderful! Basically, this is a perfect flat ride in my book, and it is easily my favorite flat ride at Dorney.

Absolutely great flat ride that is well worth a ride. The ride looks great with the orange and blue paint job. Dorney ran this for a pretty long time and the ride had tons of hang time going over the top on the revolutions and when the ride pauses at the top. Also, the Gs at the bottom of the revolutions were pretty strong as well.

This ride was really a lot of fun, hence the really intense hangtime, comfortable restraints, and very quick wait. It even feels unsafe at times, and even scary for some. But not for me. If you dont like hangtime, than this ride isnt for you since the ride is pretty long. But if you warm yourself up with less intense attractions, then Meteor can be real blast.

Meteor looks like a very daunting ride, but most of the ride is fairly tame to what riders might expect. The ride inverts several times, but the motion is very slow, so I found it to be a little boring and redundant. The saving graces of the ride are the holds. The first hold before the cars go backwards is a little scary, but the second is downright frightening. I was sersiouly HANGING in my seat. It was great. If the ride was run faster, Im sure I would like it much more. Still, its a fun ride if you like going upside down and want a thrill of being dangled upside down for several seconds.

This was one amazing flat ride. The tremendous blue & orange color scheme really makes it stand outside of many other rides at Dorney Park. The swinging motions a lot of fun & I love how youre making complete swings consistently. However, what surprised me the most & somewhat startled me was when there were a few times when we didnt even make it all the way. In that form, it was producing a lot of insane hangtime & my whole butt was completely off the seat at the top. My first thought in my mind was "OK! I ready to come down now." It was beyond awesome.

Another one of those flat rides that I cant believe that I keep getting on. I did the one at Kennywood and enjoyed parts of it, but it was not something I was dying to do again. So I come to Dorney, see another one and again get on. Once again I was with my sister which seems to be a recurring theme in my poor flatride decision catergory. I actually liked this one a little better which probably means I will continue to ride these things til I finally suffer an injury or throw up.

This is an amazing flat. As simple as it sounds, just the lengthy series of inversions, first in one direction and then the other, is so thrilling and satisfying. The moments upside down in the air before changing direction are something I wish I could freeze in time - it would certainly be good for my back. Im short, so the hanging time was disconcerting as a slid 6 inches out of my seat and my entire body was supported by the OTSRs on my shoulders, but it was certainly interesting. No coaster could invert you so many times (as far as I know), so painlessly. The outside seats are the best and most exciting, but it is also fun to sit facing any friends you are without to converse about the experience and watch each others faces. However, on the first ride, I did establish my new mantra If I die the chain has billions and billions of dollars for my estate to sue for . . . billions and billions . . . billions and billions . . . .

Unique? Yes. My kind of ride? No. This was my first inverter ride and I can say that it might be my last. I did enjoy swinging back and forth at first, but when I felt the blood rushing into my head, I decided this was not the most enjoyable ride. It keeps you upside-down for a few seconds at a time, so as you crest the top, your head heats up with blood. I felt myself screaming, “NO!” every time we were about to hang upside-down for a while. I love Enterprises where you quickly flip upside down constantly and feel the G’s, but hang time is not a walk in the park for me. I came off of this wanting to throw up. After all of the rides I’ve been on, this was my first nauseating experience and it was not fun at all. So if you know that you hate hanging upside down (which I did not know before going on), I insist that you skip this. If you want to try a new form of thrill though, give it a try.

Ah Meteor one of my favorites at Dorney Park. The line moves amazingly quick because of how many people get on at once. Just the thrill of going upside down again and again is enough for me. Then reversing and going the other way is even more thrilling. The seats are comfortable too which is always a gigantic plus on these types of rides. I will settle with an 8 which I find reasonable.

this was my first looping thrill ride when my feet hang. it was taller and had more hangtime than the original loop-o-planes. this ride had a long line but it takes alot of customers. while i was on this ride i was sitting in front of this girl and we were so close our feet could touch each other
