Flying Dutchman was a steel roller coaster located at Dorney Park in Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA. After operating at Dorney Park, it was sold to Coney Park in Jamaica. It was last thought to be in the Philippines or Singapore.
The Flying Dutchman belonged to the Zyklon model line, but it's specific model is a bit of a mystery. There were four non-looping variants of the Zyklon line: Z40, Z47, Z64 and Z78. Both Z40 and Z78 have a lift hill going diagonally through the center of the ride, and so does the Flying Dutchman. This ride is significantly larger than a Z40, so one could assume this was a Z78 model. It is believed, however, that only one Z78 was built: Himalaya, which existed at Luneur, Rome, Italy simultaneous to the Flying Dutchman at Dorney Park.
Also, the Flying Dutchman has been described as a one-of-a-kind ride so perhaps it was a custom Zyklon model. Looking at pictures of both rides, the Flying Dutchman appears to be very similar to the Luneur Zyklon, however they aren't sufficient evidence that the rides were identical.
