Glad Hershey will have an *proper* hyper now!

(No, I don't like Skyrush... :lmao: )

Looking forward to seeing this take shape.

While I am very excited to see the additions to both Busch Gardens Willamsburg and Hersheypark, I'm definitely more excited for the latter, as not only is it a new ride, but also the future possibilities that a new expansion/land provides you. I can't wait to see in, say a decade, how the new area is filled out. Maybe by then, they will have expanded (or will be expanding) over across Park Boulevard to the other section of the old golf course.

According to Queue Times, the Mini Scrambler has a 90 minute wait. Why do I feel like that's off? :lol:

The Mini Scrambler wait time is for CupFusion. When it had a 180 minute wait time posted a few weeks ago, I looked at the park app to see what 180 minutes was really for.

Ive never had to wait to enter a water attraction such as a playground or wave pool or more than a short wait for a lazy river. Thanks HP and 98° heat.

This. Anyone who says Wildcat is rough hasnt ridden Predator. Heck, I dont think Invadr was much smoother.

Here's my thoughts after visiting here for the first time...

- Storm Runner is an intense ride, one of the best ive ridden.

- read somewhere that Great Bear has the loudest B&M roar, and while I have limited first hand experience with B&M, that thing is loud as hell, especially in the sooperdooperlooper station.

- superdooperlooper is amazingly smooth for how old it is, especially compared to an Arrow.

- never again will I go on a Saturday, in July, on a concert day, when its 98 degrees. It was miserable and the crowds, especially in the water park, were unbearable. That said it cleared out pretty good in the evening. The only coaster I waited for all day was Laff Trakk.

- Lightning is better and smoother than Thunder.

- Reese's Tower has some serious airtime.

- Tidal Force is by far the best of its kind that ive ridden so far. Its wave puts Escape from Pompeii to absolute shame. I did not get a single drop of water on me riding Pompeii. 1. Tidal Force 2. Jurassic Park (IOA) 3. Shipwreck Falls (SFDL) 52. Escape from Pompeii

- missed out on Cupfusion and Skyrush due to lack of time

- Love that they have Chick-fil-a, but unfortunately its the slowest moving one.

- maybe its just me, but I hated this parks layout. Everything seems spread out in no logical order, signage is terrible and finding ride entrances is difficult.

I'll be back at some point but probably not until the kids hit Twizzler level. They were upset they couldnt ride Storm Runner and I was mad I couldnt make it to Skyrush. With that and the crowds Chocolatetown will probably draw I dont see myself coming back for a bit.
