Way to walk around vlogging with your masks off all day. Also, some constructive criticism: the music in your vlogs absolutely blows.  

Back row. That way, she'll never want to ride another roller coaster again and you can save money by leaving her at home.

In spite of it being one of my absolute favorite parks, I usually only make the trip out to Hershey once a year. However, thanks to my 2020 plans going right into the crapper I'm working with what I'v

Sorry for the double post, but this is bump worthy. I asked HP on their Facebook page about the max height, and they responded by saying the max height is in fact 6'5". So whoever the dude was on the last page with one post, he's wrong.

^Check out the sign tomorrow when you get there - if it doesn't have a maximum height on it, let someone know! I'm sure the guys in the station who have to kick tall people out would appreciate it.

 

Hershey's "size" page on their website lists Skyrush under the rides that people over 6'3" or 300 pounds "may have difficulty" with. So they do list 6'3", but only as "difficulty" and not as a definite "no."

Was there airtime on the twisty hill right before the final airtime hill?

 

I'm curious about this as well. How many moments of airtime are there are there? Ive seen some say 7 and some 5 but all I can see from the layout and POV is the 1st drop depending where you sit and the 3 straight airtime hills.

I'm going to Hersheypark on Monday (and perhaps Sunday if the weather is okay) - should I head to Skyrush or Fahrenheit first? I may be tempted to go on Skyrush first, but I assume the line will move faster for Skyrush compared to Fahrenheit, so I'm thinking that I should knock off Fahrenheit first..? I hadn't been to the park in ages, so I'm not sure what to plan first.

Fahrenheit's line does move unbearably slow, but I have no idea what waits for Skyrush will be like. Its capacity is almost exactly that of the Bear (1350 riders/hour for Skyrush, 1300 for Bear), and the latter still gets enormous lines throughout most of the day. We'll have to see how the new addition affects the flow of crowds come opening weekend.

I'm tempted to say Fahrenheit also. It's almost painful to wait in that line when it has a full queue. There's little shade and I don't recall any misters being on in the line. Not to mention watching the trains stacking on the brake run. Then again Sky Rush is an unknown. There could be the typical problems running a brand new coaster.

I would not skip Fahrenheit! I love that coaster. Yes, the capacity is low but try to get there early or go back right before the park closes and jump in line.

 

Ditto. If anything I hope Skyrush might actually help draw guests away from Fahrenheit and that area of the park, alleviating the capacity woes.

A few thoughts after spending the last few hours of the day at the park today. 1. Skyrush looks REALLY impressive in person. 2. Storm Runner is still a killer ride. 3. Hershey's operations, which used to be decent, have declined sharply the last few years, especially at Storm Runner.

 

All that said, can't wait to ride Skyrush tomorrow!

I just got back from the Project 2012 first ride event, and I'd say the ride lived up to the hype. I'd rank it just ever so slightly behind i305 as my #2 coaster, and only because I love the first helix on i305. I'll post more after I get some decent internet (thanks for nothing Knight's Inn Palmyra's WiFi).

 

Can't wait to see the mobs tomorrow in Comet Hollow.

Well this definitely sounds like my type of coaster. I need to get up to Hershey, SOON!

In line at the gate ! Never seen this many people here this early though, the line is already back to the Dunkin Donuts... looks like a one-and-done day already.

^This actually makes me glad that I'm not at Hershey today. SkyRush looks like a great ride, but I think I can wait until all the hoo-ha dies down.

The crazy thing is that Great Bear was sending out half empty trains. I saw one with just 3 people on it.
