It's the same list as always, just Fahrenheit is now on there. ;) I hope to get up there for that again before my friend and I go in June. Still not as good as HP in the Dark goes though.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Nice, to see more coasters open. I am hoping to go on Easter Sunday this year. I tried to go last year, the high winds kept me away since it was also cold out then in 2008 or 2007, it was in the 30's that day and only Comet and SDL opened but if it was warmer I still would have gone. I really want to try to go to the park on a slow day since I never have a chance to marathon ride at Hershey and I hear Easter is always empty.

I wouldn't really say that they have more coasters open, just one. Storm Runner usually runs (except last year) so Fahrenheit is really the only new one running. Last year on Saturday, they had to open up Midway unnannounced because of Harley Davidson's thing being that day, which made the place super crowded. I had planned on making Comet my first wooden coaster of the season, but that quickly changed to Lightning Racer when I saw it was running.

I'm going to the Hershey Park in August and sleep in in the Hershey Lodge. Now I have two questions:

1. Has anybody used the Hotel Shuttle from Harrisburg Amtrak Station? What's the price for the shuttle and what's the price for a taxi?

2. Does the Hershey Lodge provide baggage storage. I will leave the park in the evening. So I need to store my baggage after check out.

Many thanks for your help
Daniel

Hersheypark has sent us a new press release about their special discounts created solely for the month of March.

March is traditionally known for its “madness,” but this year it will be known for its “sweetness” as http://www.Hersheypark.com unveils the deepest discounts ever available on Hersheypark tickets. From March 1 through March 31, visitors to http://www.Hersheypark.com can participate in “March Sweetness,” an opportunity to score the sweetest ticket prices to Hersheypark and the best value on Hershey Resorts accommodations. All tickets and accommodations purchased through March Sweetness must be used by July 1, 2010. The earlier the purchase is made, the greater the savings on Hersheypark tickets. A maximum of ten tickets is allowed per transaction. Pricing is as follows:

· March 1 to 7, tickets are $20 off regular admission
· March 8 to 14, tickets are $18 off regular admission
· March 15 to 21, tickets are $16 off regular admission
· March 22 to 31, tickets are $14 off regular admission

In addition, vacationers wishing to stay overnight in Hershey also can score sweet savings with our Kid’s Stay, Play and Eat FREE Package at the best price of the season. Available at both The Hotel Hershey and Hershey Lodge, packages offer one-day complimentary admission to Hersheypark for the entire family; free breakfast for kids 17 and younger (staying in the same room with a paying adult); and admission to Hershey Gardens and The Hershey Story, The Museum on Chocolate Avenue. Prices start at $295* at Hershey Lodge and $395* at The Hotel Hershey.

Sweet savings are just part of the online fun, as http://www.Hersheypark.com hosts its own March Sweetness Tournament featuring the beloved Hershey’s Product Characters in their sweet brand of basketball action. The tournament kicks-off March 1 on the website, and visitors are encouraged to participate by picking who they think will win the tournament. Videos of the basketball action will be posted on the site and updates of the action will be reported via Twitter to website viewers. At the conclusion of the tournament, a grand prize will randomly be awarded to the online participants who picked the tournament winners.
