Hersheypark already has a launched accelerator coaster called storm runner! Be sure to ride it!


My point was, what's wrong 2 launched coasters. On Maverick hitting it's 95 degree drop at speed was sensational, so a bigger steeper drop like Farenheit's at speed would be amazing. It should be a good coaster anyway.

I went to Hersheypark in 2004 so I'm well acquainted with the horsey coaster.

Thanks for the update! This coaster is going to look so appealing when it is finished.

Does anyone know which way is the drop going to face? Is it going to face Wildcat or the other way? I'm having a difficult time figuring that out by the pictures.

That's what I'm trying to figure out. But it showed a few pieces of flat track in the background, so I'm betting that it'll face WC.

Not as acquainted as I am! ;)


Don't think that the chain lift on Farhenheit will be a slow one. It is a new hybrid chain lift powered by hydraulics, which will provide a smooth and fast ascent to the summit. I've never ridden maverick, but it doesn't seen to hit that first hill at more than 15 mph, i could be wrong, though. Anyway, both coasters are a stones throw away from each other, it wouldn't make sense to put 2 launched coasters in such close proximity.

Also, keep in mind that the drop on Farhenheit is 21 feet taller that Maverick. It wont need the extra boost to get up to speed. In fact, the speed of the Hershey drop is the same as the maverick drop. (Actually, farhenheit is 1 mph faster)

Nice Pictures.
Hopefully there's no sudden changes in the design like there were for Maverick.

I was up at Hershey today for a doctors appointment and got pictures of Fahrenheit, and it's vertical construction. They were working very hard today and the ride seems to be coming along nicely. To see all of my pictures Click Here.

Alright Here they are:
Image
As you can see construction trucks are bring supports to the site, they kept bringing them and bringing them.

Image
Intamin track goodness at its best!

Image
One of the trucks as it drives to drop off those big, blue beams, can't think of a better caption.

Image
You know you like it!

Image
All of the vertical construction so far, on Hershey's defense they are hard at work on this ride. So it could be finished very quickly, so there all you non believers!

Image
Not the best looking picture but is a close up on the supports. Wonder if it's going to get any bigger because in person it isn't that high.

Image
Look at all those supports, and track.

Image
LOOK AT THEM!!!!

Image
The supports from a ground view.

Image
Now for some up close and personal shots, I got to touch the track, surprisingly it was not hot at all. It was freezing since it was like 30 degrees out! 97 degrees my a$$!

Image
See close and personal, and look at that Intamin!

Image
There's a whole lot of it so I took a whole lot of pictures!

Image
Look now there facing the other way.

Image
Now look there all confused facing upside down and right side up. Wow these captions suck!

Image
That's better, but look at the creeps behind them, thinking there cool or something facing upside down.

Image
I'm going to stop with the extremely bad captions and just say, Intamin Track! YaY Me!

Image
I love this picture because this was right before I touched it.

Image
Supports.

Image
La De Da, there's me standing and taking a picture of me with thee awesome Intamin Track.


Hope you all enjoyed the pictures,

Track Section 74 kinda looks like it's going at the top of the norwegin loop. IDK why, I just have a feeling.

It is going up fast.
