Hersheypark (HP) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

^ Guess you missed my very next sentence where I said "Hershey is wonderful regardless." And as Strz mentioned, he hasn't been to the park since Skyrush was built, so ostensibly, he's already ridden those other rides and wants the King.

 

Edit: My sentence "Skyrush is all that is good" isn't me saying it's the only good ride in the park. Three of Hershey's coasters are in my top 10. I was just laying on the hyperbole because I love Skyrush more than I love some family members.

 

 

Remember kids, always proof read.

 

(Yes I say this often as a teacher)

^Thanks! I'll save those

 

Also, props if anyone has any pizza joint suggestions in Philly or New York. I pizza!

 

Where in NY will you be staying?

Actually won't be staying in NYC but we're planning at least one day trip there. I'll be in the Philly area for the bulk of my trip.

I see my fellow New Yorker already beat me too it but yes all those places he listed are the top pizza places in NYC.

Ah this brings back memories to Springtime in the Park 2013. Skyrush was not open for that as well and got its "axles" fixed as people claimed...It really isn't a surprise to me it's not ready yet. Hersheypark has so little down time in season because they take the utmost care of coasters in the offseason. This is likely just another case of that.

Didn't come "here" to be a hater! Just posting my disappointment! It's a quick/last minute trip with the family from NJ, so "I'll survive"/not rescheduling. "But it's a nice park, blah! blah! blah!"......yes, yes yes, but I was looking forward to hitting up this coaster!

If it's your only opportunity to go then I understand, but if you can postpone, do so. Skyrush is all that is good.

Um, a pretty good old-school B&M, a classic Schwarzkopf, a historic wooden coaster, a kick-butt Intamin launched coaster, and the best set of racing coasters in the US aren't good? My goodness, you're picky.

 

 

Yes sir Mr. Little League baseball! I LOVE parks, etc.....however- I'm basically a "hit up the big boys" kinda' guy, and I'm good!

 

For example:

- SFGA: (3) musts for me are: Nitro, El Toro, and Kingda Ka (in that order), then Zumanjaro, Batman, and Bizarro....everything else, whatever!

- BGW: Griffon, Verboten, Apollo's and I'm good- and sure, Alpengieist if we must....yes, beautiful park- blah! blah! blah!

- King's Dominion: Intimidator, Volcano, Flight of Fear, Dominator.....yup, I'm good!

 

Shall I continue? Or I think you see a trend here......

 

Ok- guess I am picky!

So this is completely hearsay but seems Skyrush is the coaster that is in fact getting the soft I305/Maverick restraints. This would explain the delay in its opening. I'm on the fence about it since just having the lapbar provides the true terror but I think with OTSR I might like Skyrush a bit more, at least giving me the option of not white knuckling that monster.

I really hope this isn't true as I love the fear on that coaster!

 

Nothing beats it's first season though. I talked my daughter into riding it (Oh just get on it has no loops) but I still remember while she was screaming "DADDY DADDY DADDDDDDYY", I was thinking "Jesus Christ if I'm scared as hell, what is she thinking????"

I just don't know about this one. Not saying you're wrong cause you could have your sources but it just seems odd that they would redesign the entire train restraints 4 years after it opens. Especially with all the changes they have already done to it. Guess we will wait and see!

 

Im still set on Storm Runner receiving them if any so we will see this weekend

^trains have been testing/running on Stormrunner, photos are floating around. Same old restraints. I don't think it's strange that Skyrush would get an adjustment, it has probably the most complained about restraints in the entire industry.

Guess I'll never feel "that pain".....SMH!

Yeah... if that's true, I honestly don't know how I feel about it. I only had one "bad" ride out of four I took on it, but throwing on the soft vest restraint seems like it would take away half of the fun of being wildly ejected left and right. I guess we will see when the ride opens up.

You know what guys?

 

As I said it was completely hearsay and I just realized its April Fools. So there you have it.

 

I'm not saying its not happening, but I am saying its April Fools today.

 

(I am still gunning for Storm Runner to get them)

This has nothing to do with anything but I would kill for the opportunity to ride Skyrush with the same trains as Millennium Force / Superman before they ruined them. It'll never happen but that would be the greatest thing ever.
