  1. It’s all good Holmes. We’ve all been there. Before Fahrenheit was announced, I was for sure it was a B&M Hyper. I had an “insiders” view. They shafted me. Oh well.
  2. Just remember, milk chocolate melts in your mouth, and in your hand. Pretty much everywhere actually. Take wipes if you invite them back. Lol
  3. Funny story about that Hershey kiss, Bert.....worked as a rides operator at HP for the 1996 and 1997 seasons in the North section. (Where the kissing tower stands). There was a small pavilion where that thing would pose for pics with you. As rides operator , we rotated out to do sweeping in our areas....and that thing sexually harassed me. Straight up grabbed my ass. Never knew who it was inside....but that kiss liked me...ALOT
  4. Unless I see the actual permits with B&M mentioned, I’m a i’m a little skeptical of them adding another steel hyper with an out an back layout so close to Skyrush. Hersheypark likes to throw people for a loop sometimes. Im not saying it’s not possible, but just unlikely. If it’s a good layout, it doesn’t really mater I suppose. But I would love to see an RMC or a GCI renaissance.
  5. Whoa. I didn’t even read the B&M part about the permits. Maybe a dive machine? The area of expansion has a lot of leeway with what they can do over there
  6. I understand and totally respect all the comments on the differences , pros and cons of adding another potentially similar ride to Skyrush to the new area at Hersheypark. But what if they’re actually going with a groundbreaking hybrid coaster ? With the tech available today, it wouldn’t be anything for RMC or even GCI to create a wooden hybrid hyper of some type.
  7. They're not getting rid of the Kissing Tower. They're having the tower redone electronically in the very near future. They were supposed to have it done this year but they dragged their feet getting the order in. The Kissing Tower isn't going anywhere.
  8. Just a thought I'm throwing out here. Perhaps it's a racing/dueling ala lightning racer? It seems like they want you to choose sides for the ride
  9. I just spent my first full day at magic kingdom yesterday (Monday). All I have to say is HOLY CRAP is this place cool. It's a little crowded, but fast pass makes it a lot better . We're going back to Magic Kingdom today because we couldn't possibly hit it all on one day. The one thing that really blew my mind was the extent of the transportation system. I parked, went through the ticket area and expected to enter an amusement park. Nope. A freaking railway station! Disney wins the award for both most ridiculous and most awesome way to enter a theme park!
  10. Knoebels is stating that it will be a lift hill and not a launch. https://m.facebook.com/comment/replies/?ctoken=10153800091000551_46989186&ft_ent_identifier=10153800091000551&gfid=AQArBrwbhfELS6L6&ref=m_notif&notif_t=like
  11. On the issue of steel coasters---Lets not forget Knoebels also had at least 2 other steel coasters within the last 30 years. They had a Jet Star (or Jet Star II, can’t remember), and a Vekoma double corkscrew coaster, both of which sat on the same site as The Flying Turns.
  12. Sorry. You must be 42" to ride. I was just agreeing with the weight restrictions.
