Definitely a needed addition to the waterpark. Nice to have a decent water coaster relatively close to Virginia. Granted I imagine the lines will be awful.

Hershey is claiming this as their 14th coaster. Come on this is not a real coaster and should not be in your coaster count. Don't pull the equivalent of SF calling superloops coasters.

I watched the live stream of the announcement and it was amazing how many people's first comment was "it's not a coaster!" Who gives a shit, it looks awesome. I really can't stand people sometimes lol

Don't call a water slide a coaster and there is no discussion.

It's a water coaster, not a water slide.
