I rode it yesterday during the last session and it offered loads of sustained floater at a relatively fast pace. The first hill had probably 5 seconds of floater, which was great. I would say it is on par with Behemoth as a B&M hyper.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

Same here! There are a few 'reaction videos' on YouTube but I figured the thread would be popping off by now. As a displaced PA native and former op there, I'm dying to hear what it's like.

There is also a backseat POV out there somewhere... but don't watch it!! If you do, someone will come to your house, retrofit your favorite seat with Skyrush lap bars, staple you, and leave.

It's almost as if there's a global pandemic going on that's making travel / vacations a bit difficult at the moment...

Also, I mean, it's a B&M hyper. Grab a Mad-Lib and fill it out with "fun", "floater air", and "people eater", and you've pretty much covered 95% of all reactions.

Looks like a great addition to the park. Should be a nice "break" from the thigh crusher, extreme machine across the park.

Looks like fun! It's nice of the park to be inclusive and have something to ride for the pussies who can't handle Skyrush. ;) :P

My thoughts exactly. :lmao:

I love Skyrush more than most people, but I can see how somebody would strongly dislike that ride. There is something to be said for a fun, comfortable, re-rideable B&M Hyper. Despite having similar stats, Skyrush and Candy are literally polar opposite coasters and I think this is a great addition to the park.

Hersheypark already had one of the best coaster collections in the country, and Candy honestly makes it even better. They have a coaster for every person's taste. I haven't been since 2016 but I loved the park. Hoping to visit in 2021!
