Looks like it. Mako has 7 cars per train, but I don't see any records of other 6 car trains out there.

Not really a huge surprise, but glad to have more details and renderings finally. This coaster looks great, will offer amazing views, and will undoubtedly be fun and very popular among park guests. Can't wait to get back to this place in 2020!

Yea, I don't really get the short trains either, but it should still be a people eater. I do wonder how it'll impact back row rides and am curious to find out.

I could see this being one of the better B&M hypers if it isn't trimmed too harshly. The setting might really make this one stand out like SFOG's Goliath and Mako.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I love the layout, I like the color a lot (the brown track grew on me). . the name is throwing me a bit.

Six Flags has kind of made Pandemonium synonymous with a family spinning coaster in my head, so "CandyMonium" is throwing me a little bit. It's a GREAT name for a HersheyPark ride, but not 100% sure it "fits"

I would have called this something like "the Full Bar" or, hell: "Hershey's Rollo Coaster"

but they didn't ask ME. . LOL.

Regardless, it's gonna be great, and a hit for the park.

Oh look, a B&M hyper.

Okay cool, so now can we focus on fixing/RMCing Wildcat and knocking down the wild mouse across the way in the process, right?

All Wildcat needs is re-tracking. Also, I believe every park should have a wild mouse coaster.

On the bottom of the site, they show a drawing of the train with 7 cars. So I'm not sure we should all get too attached to it only having 6 car trains. That may have just been an error for the ride animation (or maybe it does have 6 car trains).

I've only been to HP once, a year ago, and rode Wildcat in the front seat. The front seat. And it was one of the roughest roller coasters I've experienced with hardly any redeeming qualities. I understand it's the first GCI and the GCI HQ isn't too far away but Wildcat needs far more than retracking in my opinion. It's got a lot of potential on that little hillside!

Great, you've got an air conditioned, themed mouse in a box right across the path ;)

Great find. Honestly that seems a bit more likely.

EDIT: The park replied to someone's comment on Facebook and confirmed that it's going to run 7 car trains.

I'm all for I-boxing Wildcat. Red steel tracks - the "Twizzler Twister".

Hershey, be sure to send the check once you're done raking in the money off of that one. ;)

Ride Predator at SFDL if you want a rough ride. Wildcat is nothing compared to that.
