Hercules was a Dinn wooden roller coaster located at Dorney Park in Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA. It operated from May 6, 1989 to September 1, 2003. It was built by Dinn Corporation and designed by Curtis D. Summers.

HistoryEdit

When the ride opened, it had the tallest drop in the world on a wooden roller coaster, however poor design and rough spots (especially at the turn at the bottom of the first drop) caused many riders to complain. This, and low ridership were most likely the reason of the ride's closure.

The Hydra The Revenge floorless coaster occupies the spot where Hercules once was.

DesignEdit

The ride has a terrain track layout.
