Hershey Park Tennessee!

Postby angryemobeaver » Thu Apr 10, 2008 5:16 pm

Last Saturday i visited Tenessee, and went to their Hershey Park! Although ive never been to Hershey Pennslyvania, Hawaii, Carribian, or any of the other parks... Hershey Tenessee has to be one of the best!
Image
I wasn't to impressed by the entrance, but it's the coasters im looking for!
Image
Here is one side of Main Street, the other side is being re-built after tornados in Febuary destroyed it. This side features Jack In The Box, Starbucks, a restroom, and a gift shop!
Image
Reece's Spinning Cups is a classic!
Image
Another classic is Hershey's Kissing Tower.
Image
Fahrenhet is HT's newest coaster!
Image
Afterburner: Black Falcon is a Vekoma Flying Dutchman in the front of the park by Fahrenhet, it's almost always closed due to maintence.
Image
Awesome support structure!
Image
Here is Afterburner's station and fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo. Notice that it has three trains.
Image
To your left is Hershey Carosaul, and in the background is NOS Extreme Experiance.
Image
The old covered bridge gets guest across the train tracks, along with the new un-covered bridge.
Image
Here you can see the train tracks in the ditch, and the un-covered bridge.
Image
Dust Strom, with a random Cinnabun sign.
Image
Speaking of Cinnabun, here is the park's huge Cinnabun restraunt.
Image
The toldem pole, along with the swamp, and Popeye's Chicken in the background.
Image
Thunderbolt, Hershey's GCI wooden coaster!
Image
Detail.
Image
More detail (lift hill motor), and there are some teasers in the back.
Image
TNT, Hershey's very well themed Rotovator.
Image
Hershey River Falls splash, Stormrunner in the background, and the ghost town theme for the train.

That i have for today, but im visiting the park again tomorow so expect an update soon!

More soon.

I guess I'm the first to comment....I think the park looks great! A lot of the rides really fit in and the details are great. But i don't like the way Fahrenhet's lift hill looks. It just doesn't look believable. But overall i like the park so far! Keep it up! :b

Actually Fahrenheit doesn't have a lifted hill, it has LIM's.

I wrote the book about donkeys!

Great park so far, can't wait to see more. Please look up the ride before you try to say something, Fahrenheit actually has two chains, so its more lift then a normal coaster, lol. I'm talking about the guy that posted above me, and I know I saw it in person, haha.

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.

The park looks really good!

But... After Burner: Black Falcon looks EXACTLY like Flight of the Falcon at SFIA (RCT3)

It's not the same ride, is it?

Thanks for the replies.

The Fahrenheit at my park isn't a recreation, it's my own design thats not like the real version at all. And Afterburner is not like Falcon's Flight... mine is a recreation of Firehawk, Batwing, ect...


UPDATE!
Welcome back to Hershey Tenessee!
I started my day off at the back of the park towards Stormrunner.
I really like this area of the park.
Image
I made my way to the park's unique drop tower ride Mystery Mine (yes i know it's copied off of Dollywood)
Image
Never seen a ride like this before!
Image
Is that a roller coaster?
Image
Yes, it's Mini Miner!
Image
Timberland Twister.
Image
Stormrunner looks awesome, too bad it was closed for testing today...
Image
Mine Mountain, sound fimiliar?
Image

PART TWO
The tornados that hit the park in February not only destroyed half of Main Street, but also the west side of the park... All the coasters survived, but most of the building did not. I got a backstage tour of that side of the park.

Great Bear is the parks B&M invert (it's not a recreation of Hershey Pennslyvania's Great Bear)
Image
This pic was tooken from inside the queue line.
Image
Most of the ride can be seen here.
Image
Corkscrew!
Image
NOS: Extreme Experiance, this coaster opened in the late 90's as Tenessee Skyscraper but just got it's named changed.
Image
Airtime hills!
Image
Almost looks like a wooden coaster...
Image
Because of the path below, NOS got this cool support design!
Image
NOS has an awesome turn-around like Wild Thing at Valley Fair!
Image
Mine Shaft, i realy have no clue what kind of ride is inside...
Image
As i was about to leave, Stormrunner opened!
Image
Nice view while on the ride...
Image

More soon...

Welcome back to Hershey Park Tenessee!
I have some good news! The park is hiring, and i got a job! As of now i don't know what it is though. And the other good news is that the west side of the park is almost done being constructed. The parks old Arrow coaster, Wildfire, has started testing! Rumors were that the ride wouldn't open back up, but it did! Although the ride is in desperate need of a paint job, the ride looks great! Once again, i got a tour of the west side!

Here is the ride's station and the crash effect (the ride breaks through the station with smoke.)
Image
Here you can see 4 of the 5 inversions!
Image
The chain lift and first drop.
Image
Cool picture of the second loop.
Image
The double loop from the catwalk.
Image
Ill end this update with some great views of the park from the catwalk!
Image
Image

More soon....
