P. 431: Jolly Rancher Remix & Mix'd family ride to debut this summer

Recommended Posts

Was in the park today for an event and they were working on the pull through all day. Last I saw they let the train roll down from the middle of the really over banked turn near the first drop around 2:30. It started raining around 5:00, not sure how far they got before it hit. It's really hard to see the big chunk of the ride from anywhere in the park, but what you can see looks awesome.

WHY CAN'T THEY TAKE THAT PADDING OFF???

 

 

Because Hersheypark doesn't want the paint to get scratched, or else enthusiasses will complain. Oh wait, they will find something else to complain about anyway.

 

What's the closest enthusiasts have come to being fully satisfied with a coaster?

That is akin to finding the holy grail.

 

Youre too generous. I think you mean the holy grail that spills forth the fountain of youth when you tip it over. That sounds a bit more close.

I don't know what you guys are on about, I'm completely satisfied with riding Lightning Racer all day. If I don't hate a coaster, I won't complain and I'll just ride it over and over again.

Saturday, May 26th is the published opening day, which is always subject to change.

 

To meet that opening date won't they have to start testing pretty soon?

How long does it usually take to test/what are the requirements?

 

Testing time varies greatly. The manufacturer (In this case Intamin) will have their programmer/mechanical engineers do a series of tests and they will do a certain amount of cycles before "handing" the ride over to the park so they can do their own testing. During the parks testing is usually when state inspectors will come out and do their inspections and have the park make any necessary changes so that it can be approved for riders. Each state has different requirements for amusement rides.

I believe that our group was told back in February (has it really been that long? I'm old!) that they wanted one hundred hours of testing for each train. They could probably do that over the course of three weeks.
