Jean Bonnet Tavern

Jean Bonnet Tavern

The Jean Bonnet has a history that dates backs to the early 1700’s. Originally a rooming house it later started serving food along with it’s distinct brews and was one of the first Public Houses to open in the U.S.
It has long been known to the locals who reside in close proximity to the Jean Bonnet that there is much more to the allure of the tavern than its historical past, charming atmosphere, and excellent food and drink.

So many, the stories of hauntings and ghostly visitors draw them to the tavern in hopes of having an encounter themselves. Sightings and encounters have been experienced by both employees and guests.

“Return to the Haunted Jean Bonnet Tavern” published in the The Pennsylvania Ghost Guide Vol. II, written by Patti Wilson. It has also been listed in the National Registry of Historic Places.

So if you have an interest in the paranormal or if you’re just interested in “things that go bump in the night”, have a meal, get a room and see if any spectres keep you awake at night.

Wildwater Kingdom at Dorney Park

Wildwater Kingdom at Dorney Park

Looking to cool off at one of the best waterparks in the world? Look no further than Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom.

Visitors to Wildwater Kingdom enjoy one of the largest collections of water attractions on the planet.

Adding to its collection of 18 water slides, a tubing adventure, activity pools and other water activities, Wildwater Kingdom is home to two wave pools in 2006. The addition of another wave pool makes Wildwater Kingdom one of the only waterparks in the country to offer a double dose of wave pool fun.

The additional wave pool is approximately two-thirds the size of the existing giant wave pool. Guests enjoy a unique experience with added features in the new wave pool such as geysers and wall sprays in the shallow end.

Both wave pools use the latest in wave pool technology by generating waves pneumatically which provides guests with the sensation of the ocean, but without the seaweed and jellyfish.

Guests who wish to soak up the sun can lounge in a chair on the renovated midways around the new wave pool and enjoy the additional space for sunbathing while guests looking to escape from the summer sun can seek out one of many new cabanas being offered for rent.

Those who dare, challenge body slides and tubing slides of all sizes and one of the longest elevated water slides in the world. For the little ones, there are three aquatic playlands to splash around in and get wet.

There is more fun for the entire family in an interactive water funhouse, two tubing rivers and other splash zones to cool down in and escape from the summer heat.
