I *Really* wanted to try the italian ice w/ Custard.

but I was so full after that shake, that I had to pretty much force myself to eat something for dinner later. . LOL. . I still have the Hershey bar they gave us at the end of the Chocolate World dark ride. yeah, I was THAT full from the shake/cupcake combo :)

(three other flavors avail. at a shop near front gates too)


Alright...I was excited to finally get to ride Steel Vengeance next week but I might actually be more excited for this. Getting a stomach ache just looking at it but wow.

They're all over, especially here in the northeast. They all have some of those weird flavors, too. I personally always get the Swedish Fish flavor with custard - delicious!

Debating on heading out to the park tomorrow. Although I see a forecast for possible thunderstorms throughout most of the day. Also wondering if crowds will be very heavy since it's a Saturday. Any advice? Is it worth going?

I know more about donkeys than women!

Finally firming up a weekend East Coast trip next month. (Mainly to see closing night of a Broadway show.) Since the show is Sunday night have decided to make a return visit to Hershey and get that elusive ride on Skyrush. (We were next to ride before they shut it down.) How are crowds on September Saturday's? Specifically I am going the 15th.

In ideal land, I would spend opening till around 2-3PM at Hershey then drive up to Knoebels for the evening. (Sue me.) Was just at the park last year in May so did most of the stuff so just really looking to hit a few things that we missed and some ride some favorites. Mainly Skyrush, Storm Runner, Chocolate World (didn't do as well), ZooAmerica possibly, and a couple of others.

Park Hours:
Hersheypark: 10AM-10PM
Knoebels: 12PM-8PM

Hit the park for preview tonight. Quick shower around 9 emptied the park for the last 2 hours.

Not sure why but Skyrush didn't blow me away today the way it did in the past. The first time I rode it 5 years ago it literally almost ripped my shirt off with all the airtime and positive G's. Airtime was still good tonight but barely felt the positive G's and that was in the back left seat. Also my legs didn't feel like mincemeat from the lapbar like before. I'd hate to think Steel Vengeance has literally spoiled me so badly that Skyrush feels forceless...hopefully it was just running slow or something.

Since the last time I've been Fahrenheit and Storm Runner have changed to vest OTSRs which is a nice change. Was nice to get a couple rides on Fahrenheit with a 10 minute ride..usually has a long line when I go so I've barely ever ridden it. Fun ride but that and Storm Runner combined can't hold a candle to Maverick.

Back at it tomorrow for the last day of this coaster trip :(

Well, this is making the rounds in the coaster FB groups and it looks like its pretty official and that we're getting a 220 footer in 2020.
