QTF...100%. The speed on this coaster is something that I could only imagine in RCT3, and now it's finally coming to life! :airtime:

What happened?

If I remember right a train volleyed in the cobra roll and had to be pushed out by a few guys on a crane.

It also got stuck upside down at the exit of the cobra roll and rolled out by itself V E R Y S L O W L Y.

That was only because it was running empty. So from that day forward Hershey had to run Fahrenheit with passengers.

Looks like a GREAT RIDE, thanks for the video. Looks like lots of airtime everywhere, with none of the usual Intamin (QDC) Quick Direction Changes (eg. Maverick, I305) that I don't like. I can't wait...

I'm wondering if it will have a stationary floor or a lowering floor. Since it's an Intamin, I'm guessing it will be a stationary floor.

I don't mind "twisties," it's the quick one direction then a quick turn in the other. For me this creates too much head banging / neck crunching into the OTSR.

The way the back seat flies over the first airtime hill is so great, but it looks like in any row there is no escaping the airtime. I'll have to make my first trip to Hershey Park sometime this year...any recommendations on when to visit?

^Either weekdays in late May, mid to late June, or very late August. Early June is swarmed by school trips, and July and August are packed with tourists. But no matter the season, always avoid Saturdays.

Good thing there is no OTSRs. I do see one direction change on the twisty hill thing before the final small bunnyhill, but if I'm correct your talking about the transitions between flat turns like in the beginning of Maverick and on I305. El Toro has those transitions too, but because its just lapbars, there's no possible discomfort!
