Is it bad that I loved Chocolate World much more than the park? Seriously, "Its the milk chocolate!" was stuck in my head forever after riding one of the weirdest "tours" ever.

Great shots Hanno. I miss Lightning Racer ERT :(

does anyone know what those pieces are beneath the upstop wheels on fahrenheit? I've never seen those before.

It's where the drive wheels right before the lift make contact with the train.

Finally! I see myself in an update! Lightning Racer ERT was just pure awesomeness. Great pics Hanno.

On the other hand, did anyone go see the 3D show at Chocolate World? I'm sorry I wasted my money on it. :lmao:

Meep Meep!

Hershey for me is just a hard park to get around. It took me a few hours to make it to the mine train area, and all I got to ride was Great Bear - which I loved! Next time I go back, I have a plan that should work! :) (I think) Everything seems so on top of each other, and poorly laid out to me. And sure, they can fit three more coasters in that spot! ;) (the more room comment)

Thanks for the pics! I always love to see what I have missed! :D

Mudflaps!

Actually I don't know, but they look like something someone would stand on if the train were either stuck upside down and needed immediate attention, or maybe the trains at some point in their maintenance cycle would get flipped over intentionally and worked on while inverted.

Fahrenheit does have a lot of rattle for a new coaster, but I love everything about this coaster...other than the rattle. The vertical lift freaks people out right from the start. And that section of track during the transition into the Norwegian loop looks like it could use a little more bracing. Its got a lot of movement. Many people in line are commenting about the track moving. The bunny hop at the end makes for a nice ending.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

3 days to go until my trip and I can't wait to try Fahrenheit out for the first time. I really want to find out how it stacks up against the park's other coasters.
Great pics Hanno! Hopefully mine will turn out as great as yours!
