Stinger unfortunately was closed forever at the close of the 2017 season due to reliability issues. The ride has been scrapped.
Dorney Park's Stinger took you upside down six times in just over a minute and a half. The seven-car train hung from an overhead steel track, seating two abreast, in back-to-back rows. The ride began when the train climbed out of the station up a 16-story lift hill. Reaching the peak, the train descended 138-feet to reach a top speed of 50 miles-per-hour. Between each end of the track was a double boomerang inversion and vertical loop. Reaching the opposite end, the train climbed the opposite lift and repeated the course again, in reverse.
