Dorney Park's Stinger takes you upside down six times in just over a minute and a half. The seven-car train hangs from an overhead steel track, seating two abreast, in back-to-back rows. The ride begins when the train climbs out of the station up a 16-story lift hill. Reaching the peak, the train descends 138-feet to reach a top speed of 50 miles-per-hour. Between each end of the track is a double boomerang inversion and vertical loop. Reaching the opposite end, the train climbs the opposite lift and repeats the course again, in reverse.
