No problem, I thought that everyone else would like to see that too. And for more POV action, head over to Fahrenheit's webcam page where videos 5-7 are now up, along with a construction timeline going along the bottom. Granted, the POV isn't of the whole ride but it does have a much higher quality than those on Youtube.

There were trims. Right after the cobra roll.

Has anyone noticed them? Maybe they're just there for trains moving at a higher rate of speed but not to slow down every single one...?
Those aren't trims. They're just spaces for trims. They can put brakes there, but currently there aren't any.
I am out of ideas for what to write in this signature box.

/\ Correct

If you look at that section of track from the ground, theres nothing there, just the metal bar on the track where they would go

It's easily tied with Phantoms revenge as my favorite non-launch steel coaster
Access Denied. Better known as Zerethon.

LIVE It. LIKE It. LOVE It.!

Lovely, lovely photos! I also really enjoyed the report (yes I read it all lol). Fahrenheit looks really fun! I think Fahrenheits trains looked a bit...plain to me. You would have thought they would have added fire or something to the cars but...It's still a must ride!

If it was a bit smoother and less jerky, maybe I would've enjoyed it, but we tried it three times and I was just left thinking, "Well, that wasn't very good."


I thought Maverick was just awesome, no head banging at all (but maybe that's because I found myself leaning forward throughout the whole ride...)

Nata, fantastic write-up and photo TR. Really well-done! If I had the capital right now to hire a staff writer for the magazine, I would be sending you a letter yesterday. Anyway, this is one park and coaster I think that must be visited this year rather than next. Now, to figure out how to bribe my actual place of employment....how does one bribe a casino?

Joining the Mob might be a good first step. They're quite, uh, "friendly" with the casinos, right? At the very least, they seem to have an uncanny knack for Getting What They Want.

Thanks for your comments, though. Now I'm blushing like crazy and saying things like, "Aww, shucks..." and that's just something I don't do. Ever.

Anyway, here are some of my photos from the rest of the park. I don't have much of a formal Trip Report for this part, but I can sum it up for you in three words: It was busy.

It wasn't horrible. Lightning Racer was only about a 15 minute wait, but we rode that pretty early in the day. Everything else was definitely holding steady around the 45-minute- to an hour- wait mark. Still, friendly staff, decent operations, and beautiful landscaping. For a holiday weekend, there really wasn't much to complain about.

On the way to PA, we stopped at IKEA outside of D.C. I'd never been before, and let me just say my MIND WAS BLOWN. Such an awesome place. Plus, since I'm a 1/4 Svenska Flicka, I found myself feeling oddly at home around all the Yagenplutz and Fjärding.
(P.S. Anyone see me in the picture?)
Hershey 017.jpg
And when I found this guy sitting in the store, I decided to put him in the traditional roller coaster riding position as an homage to my HP trip.
Hershey 022.jpg
But on to the park. There I am in the front row, mid-launch. And I swear that is not a cloud of B.O. around my armpit. What an unfortunate placement for a lens flare.
But look at me - only one brave enough to do the arms up thing.
Hershey 027.jpg
A slew of Storm Runner photos await you.
Hershey 031.jpg
I LOVE this picture, if only for the perfect placement of the guy's arm between the supports.

SR through one really pretty tree!

A demonized horse is the mascot for this ride.

I never got a decent full shot of Comet...
Hershey 395.jpg
...but these are kind of cool, anyway.

Now, I didn't care for the colors in any of my Great Bear shots, so I played around with them a bit...
Hershey 392c.jpg
I like it, at least.
Hershey 381.jpg
Hershey 383.jpg
Soopahdoopahloopah. Must have been a lot of New Yorkers visiting that day, because that's how everyone was pronouncing it.
Hershey 401.jpg
Nothing like a picture of everyone's backside.
Hershey 352.jpg
The Claw. And as I'm typing this, I just realized that I never took any pictures of the new flat this year (Howler). Sorry about that, folks.
Hershey 360.jpg
I got a headache just taking a picture of this thing.
Hershey 158.jpg
Boat full o' crazies. It was only about 65 degrees that day, with a constant breeze. Not that that's cold, exactly, but it was only 40 degrees the night before - that water had to be freezing.
Hershey 180.jpg
One credit I still don't have. I made it through the queue that day, though. But when I was hit with about 5 droplets of water from a passing car while waiting in line, I felt the beginning stages of hypothermia setting in, and I decided to use the good sense God gave me and get out of line.
Hershey 272.jpg
Besides, it's not like these rides just give you a light misting and pat on the back. It's more like a bath in an igloo and a punch in the face.
Hershey 214.jpg
I gotta admit, this looked fun though.
Hershey 251.jpg
If I had a change of clothes, I'd have gone in there and toughed it out. Maybe.
Hershey 178.jpg
This was fun just to watch, especially since I got to see a handful of fannies. Including this guy's. (word of advice boys: consider wearing suspenders with your trunks.) I didn't get a picture though, but I assure you, I'm more upset by this fact than you are.
Hershey 165.jpg
But here's a wipe-out, at least. It's no buttock, but it was the best I could do.
Hershey 202.jpg
Let's go back to the coasters, though.
Hershey 201.jpg
Wildcat.
Hershey 257.jpg
Hershey 546.jpg
Sorry that I'm really dropping the ball on these captions.
Hershey 265.jpg
So much better since they got the Millennium Flyers.
Hershey 370.jpg
The obligatory mine train coaster
Hershey 206.jpg
And Lightning Racer, one of my favorite coasters, but one of the hardest to get good photos of. Yeah, I just ended a sentence with a preposition. What are you gonna do about it?
Hershey 240.jpg
Still, I got a few decent shots.
Hershey 241.jpg
Hershey 220.jpg
And let's take one last look at F-heit (I really got tired of typing the whole thing out after awhile, though I guess typing out this explanation didn't exactly save me any time or effort).
Hershey 554.jpg
Ahh, and so ends another wonderful trip to Hersheypark. Thanks Nantimi for getting me up there this year!
