Hersheypark (HP) Discussion Thread

P. 435: Wildcat's Revenge announced!

Recommended Posts

I couldn't agree more. At first I was a bit disappointed, mostly due to the video. But now thanks to these on-site videos, you can tell this bad boy is build for speed and intensity, while the head and foot chopers are a welcome surprise. I can not wait to ride Skyrush, because at this point, it looks like a world class ride imho.

Okay it shouldn't even be a discussion whether its 85º or not because it is and they're not going to say it is if it wasn't.

 

At least we're not talking about how bad Skyrush is because it overshadows Comet. (I don't support this at all, I think it "complements" the Comet)

Anyone know when the anticipated opening day is? I am trying to schedule a trip to Pennsylvania for either mid-May or mid-June. I would rather go in May when crowds would be less but I don't want to risk Skyrush not being opened yet...

 

I couldn't find it on Herheypark's website and rcdb just says 5/2012. Anybody know if it's on schedule? THANKS!

Currently, Memorial Day weekend is 'Grand Opening' as scheduled. The final date of opening has not been announced, but historically (Save for the Fahrenheit debacle...) Memorial Day opens the new coasters.

 

Expect FULL coverage from HersheyPark by TPR that day- as there are quite a few of us heading up for the 'big party' (Some of us, well, more than others!)

Catwalks are going up and they seem to be moving fast (All of them that are up were done within one day). The first two photos were taken yesterday and the others are from today.

What you are seeing is Looper paint. As you can see, there is some white paint from the 1980's paint job. :)

Another great update! This coaster is quickly moving up on my lists as being one of my top anticipated coasters of this year.

 

Oh, and thanks for posting so many photos instead of just linking to your website.
