2016 Dorney Park Mansion House Meal

150905 Dorney Park Mansion House Hotel

One of our favorite times of year is during Haunt, because, well it is a lot of FUN to experience the parks in a new light darkness. We also love the Halloween season because it is one time of year the Cedar Fair parks really let the executive chefs skills shine through by creating unique dining experiences.

One particular park has really shined in recent years at Dorney Park. Their Mansion House meal has turned out some absolute incredible food not only in taste but in presentation.

2016 Dorney Park Fright Feast

Valleyfair 2014 Fright Feast

One of our favorite events during Dorney Park Haunt is the Mansion House Meal, offering a premium dining experience in the Mansion House Haunt. Dorney has also brought back Fright Feast, offering an all-you-can-eat meal.

While they do not say where this season’s Fright Feast will be held, we know from the 2015 Fright Feast that they held the event in the Food Fest Grove.

Fright Feast takes place from 6:00-7:30 pm daily during Haunt.

The menu includes Flame Grilled Hamburgers, Grilled Chicken Breast Sandwiches, BBQ Ribs, Hot Dogs, Corn on the Cob side salad, chips, brownies, ice cream and Coca Cola Beverages.

New this year, Dorney includes an All-Season souvenir drink bottle with purchase of Fright Feast. In the past they included a one-time use front of the line pass.

Meal tickets only are $18.00. Combo admission and Fright Feast tickets are $43 (September) or $48 (October). Considering an admission ticket is $38, getting Fright Feast is a great bargain when purchased as a combo.
