  1. Hersheypark has such a great mix of coasters that the only thing missing is a hyper. My gut feeling is that it'll be a B&M hyper with a water feature like Diamondback.


    They don't have a flyer, or stand-up coaster either.


    ^ Considering B&M has been very consistent with the heights of their last 3 hypers, and only 'new model' hypers, at 232, 230, and 230 feet, I'd say it's a Dive Machine...if it's even a B&M at all.



    They were all bought by Cedar Fair, so that may have something to do with that coincidence.

  2. If you go to Keystone Thrills and see the pics of the markings on the ground, there are some that are marked to resemble a station right there, plus some stakes alongside the Comet that would resemble where footers/poles would be located. My guess is that this is for a station and brake run.




    I just have a hard time picturing that, considering three other coasters have tracks running in close proximity to that spot. If that is true, it is really going to be a tight fit.


    Maybe I'll take a look next week.

  3. It would be a shame, one way or another if this turned out to be the last season for the ride, except if it's the possibility of something better replacing the coaster. While a bit weathered, it is probably the best run Boomerang I've personally ridden. I had rides on it and Sidewinder at Hershey recently, and the difference between the two is rather stark; on the Tidal Wave the padding was softer, and the braking and tracking was far smoother.
