Talon is a steel inverted roller coaster located at Dorney Park in Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA. It opened on May 5, 2001.
Talon was announced in September 2000. A media day was held on May 3, 2001, with Talon opening to the public two days later on May 5.
Talon is remarkably quiet, unlike most roller coasters built by Bolliger & Mabillard. This was accomplished by filling the tracks with sand and gravel to reduce noise levels.
Talon has yellow and orange track with blue supports.
2 trains with 8 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 4 across in a single row, for a total of 32 riders per train.
A "talon" is a claw, especially one belonging to a bird of prey. The ride's tagline is "The Grip of Fear".
