The ride is a lot of fun! Good mix of strong floater and a little bit of ejector in some spots. Good pacing and some really good speed. Overall, its one of the best hypers they've made for sure. I'd put it right up there with Goliath at Over Georgia and better than Mako.

I'd prefer GCI give it the Ghostrider treatment. I'd hate to lose Wildcat. It has a great layout and lots of potential it just needs some work.

^^ I get that, but when the park has a superior GCI coaster (or two depending on how you count) literally within a couple hundred feet, I'm not that worried about it.

I'm pretty sure those are just utility conduits running from the valley's up to the actual trims. The trims are where they usually are on these B&Ms (on a flat section of track leading uphill to the crest). Not sure why they chose to run the conduits this way and not paint them the same color as the track. But they really don't seem to slow the ride down much.

I get that too but 3 good GCI coasters and an original RMC is better than 2 and a RMC conversion.

At this point they should just re-do Wildcat so that people would stop asking them to re-do Wildcat.

So 4 coasters are better than 3? :lol: well, yeah. But sometimes you have to settle for something more realistic.

Candimonium looks very Mako-ish, which isn’t a bad thing... in fact, I think it might look better if only because it’s MCBR-less... one less chance to slow it down!

Agreed. "Floating; ejector spots; suitable tempo punctuated by brief periods of intensity." Definitely sounds like fun. (Or, at least "my" speed!) :lmao:

AND...it makes me hungry for a Hershey bar.
So I'd say that this coaster is a Mission Accomplished for Hersheypark. ;)
