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.
Roller Coasters provide a great escape from the depressing reality that is adulthood.

Top Parks 1. BGW 2. DW 3. CP 4. IOA 5. USF

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 know more about donkeys than women!

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.
