Sometimes A Day Out With Family Is All A Scranton Child Wishes For
Not far from Scranton is Allentown, where Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom is located. This combination amusement park and water park is a treat for children. Fun rides, cool and refreshing water slides, delicious restaurants, carnival treats and plenty of great souvenirs will have every member of the family enjoying their visit to either of the parks. Or combine both of them together for a really adventurous day.
Wheels For Wishes will schedule a date for your car, boat, RV, motorcycle, trailer or SUV to be picked up or towed. You will receive a receipt verifying the purchased price for your own tax records. The selling of donated vehicles makes it possible for another wish, such as a visit to the National Historic Site of Steamtown, to come true. Kids fascinated with railroads and trains will enjoy the railroad museum where they will see actual rail cars. Kids can visit the technology and history museum to see exhibits in addition to watching a film explaining the history of the train from its days of steam to steel.
