Mako is the exact opposite of "meh", and I've ridden it probably ten or fifteen times in the past year alone. I have a big smile on my face every time I get off.

There's something to be said about a coaster as a visual magnet, and a big photogenic B&M certainly fits the bill for Hersheypark's new grand entrance area. What would you rather have had Hersheypark build?


i much preferred manta, and montu at bgt. like i said many times now, i understand why hershey is building this coaster, it makes perfect sense for a family park, it will look good, it's not too intense for anyone, and has huge capacity.. i'm just surprised you guys are excited about this thing. to each his own


Hersheypark already has a B&M invert. A flyer would have been probably the best option, but I think a B&M hyper is something to really look forward to.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

B&M Hypers are great. They're huge. They're fast. They're fun. Almost everyone enjoys them. Most of us tend to take this hobby less seriously or aren't interest exclusively in extreme thrills.

A lot of us appreciate the park providing such a large scale coaster and support HP because of it, which makes us appear like we're not spoiled bitches.

I think the person who needs to step away from keyboard is you. Step away, go wipe that obnoxious and rude attitude away that nobody here needs, and then come back again.

And if you can't do that, just don't come back again.

Understood? Good.

I didn’t realize this was a community where everyone must like the same things, no one can have a different opinion, no one can be disappointed by a ride. What is this a cult? How insecure are you people that it literally angers you that someone doesn’t share your opinion on something, that you need that validation or you’ll have a bad day and start personally insulting the person over it?

I haven’t been rude, all I’ve done is expressed a personal opinion that is completely reasonable.. and I’m being called a bitch and told to leave. Seriously get some help boys, that’s really fucked up. Man, what sad lives you lead.

Donkeys are my way of life!

I think most people here just believe you should actually ride a ride before judging it. Forming an opinion on something that hasn't even had an official POV released is kinda silly.

The one thing this community is trying to do in my opinion is break the mentality of entitled enthusiasts who think parks owe them something. That parks owe us constant record breaking intense crazy rides. That anything less will suck and be boring and terrible. We are the minority of any given parks clientele and parks don't owe us anything.

I think this community is trying to just get people to go to parks and have FUN and enjoy every ride for what it is and not what "it should've been."

I mean, much like you're surprised about the forum's excitement over Hersheypark's upcoming coaster, we're surprised that you think the 78th best roller coaster in the world (Mako, according to our poll this year) is boring. And for the record, there are plenty of coasters with pretty much nothing but airtime hills that are ranked even better than Mako, such as Phoenix (#20), Balder (#30), and Shambhala (#42), to name a few.

How am I acting entitled? I don't care what Hershey builds, I've never been there, it's not a local park for me, I'm not complaining about it, I've even said it makes perfect sense for them to build this coaster.. all I said is it doesn't look that exciting to ME so I'm willing to go before it opens and that I was surprised that enthusiasts were so excited about it since it seems to bring nothing new to the table.

If you're older than 13, the appropriate response is not "well you're a bitch and you should leave this forum!!!".

Not everyone gets a hard on for floater air. Some people like floater, some people like ejector, some people like neither and prefer positive g's, some people love inversions and find coasters without inversions boring, some people like woodies and don't like steel coasters. Some of us also don't care about mindlessly accumulating credits (WHAT?!??)

It's ok for people to have different opinions and not love the things you love, there's no need for this silly gatekeeping..
