I remember seeing an availability calendar for reservations on the website with check marks on the open days (which was all of them). I don't see it now. Am I just missing something?

You need a ticket or pass to access the reservation system.

Edit:

I think this is what you were looking for: https://www.hersheypark.com/reservations/reserve-your-day/availability.php?_ga=2.173162337.35138034.1593269977-1848675145.1591994155

Thanks! Does the system make you select a time with only a certain number of spots being available per time slot like the Cedar Fair parks are doing?

No idea; I don't have a pass or tickets, and you can't access the actual reservation system without one of those.

I made a reservation for 2 days and it's just for the day. No specific time.

It had opened, right? So wonder what's going on that it's suddenly down?

https://www.hersheypark.com/explore-the-park/rides/storm-runner/

According to their Instagram page in some of the comments they said due to the delays caused by COVID-19 they weren't able to perform their maintenance necessary to open it for the season. Something like that. Really unfortunate!

^ StormRunner is easily my favorite Coaster there, so that's a shame :(

but they still have a really stellar lineup anyways - worth a visit for Great Bear, Lightning Racer, Farenheit, SuperDooperLooper, Coment, and I'm assuming Candymonium will be awesome. The Indoor spinner is fun too.

can easily skip the Mouse and Wildcat

I'm personally not a fan of Skyrush - so that's not a "deciding factor on a visit" for me.

I'm definitely really excited to visit for the first time, and yeah I'm very bummed Storm Runner won't be open. However, I really am excited for Skyrush, Candymonium, and the other highlights there. Since I have to come back to the area at some point for Dorney and Jersey Devil at SFGAdv, I will definitely be back to get Storm Runner and anything else that's closed.
