First parts of the roller coaster track on Pennsylvania’s first dive coaster

ALLENTOWN, Pa. (WHTM) – The first pieces of what will become the first dive coaster in the Northeast are now at Dorney Park in Allentown.

The park said construction crews had positioned sections of track for Iron Menace. The station track and part of the braking track are now in place, marking a milestone in the construction of the first new roller coaster to be built at the park in 19 years.

“We are incredibly excited to have the track in position for Iron Menace,” said Jessica Naderman, general manager and vice president of Dorney Park & ​​Wildwater Kingdom. “This is a significant step forward in the construction process and a testament to our team’s hard work and commitment. We can’t wait to share this thrilling rollercoaster ride with our guests.”

Iron Menace will be Pennsylvania’s first dive coaster. The coaster will feature a 160-foot lift hill, a 95-degree first drop and four-inversion twist, reaching speeds of 64 miles per hour on a 2,200-foot track.

The ride is scheduled to open in Dorney Park during the 2024 season.
