Hersheypark (HP) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I *believe* your parking fee for Preview Night is good for the next day - you just keep the ticket and show them.

 

but not sure, as we've always stayed on property, or I visited with a group that took us by bus.

 

so maybe someone whos done it recently can clarify for sure.

 

EDIT: from the website:

 

Ticketing

What is the Preview Plan?

 

When you purchase a regular full-day admission ticket, you can enter the night before your big day for 2 1/2 hours prior to Park closing. Just show your ticket at the Front Gate and you can start enjoying the fun early! Purchase parking the evening you are using the Preview Plan and keep the parking stub, along with your admission tickets, to use the following day.

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

Just realized I posted this TR on page 420. Score!

the preview night really makes a huge difference. you can get a LOT done in those 2 1/2 hours.

 

on a Thursday? place should be dead in the evening, as the next day is a work day.

Agreed, the preview night is totally worth doing as the park clears out around 8pm. I was able to get 3-4 rides each on skyrush, storm runner and Fahrenheit during the preview night.

Wildcat is a one and done for me. If I don't get the magic seat (2nd row) I have a massive headache. I even take ibuprofen before riding in preparation.

 

It has become a rough ride. They should just do a Cedar Fair style RMC, which is one where they keep as much track as possible. Especially b/c they already have a classic out and back woodie and a racing twister coaster.

I beg to differ. In my opinion, Wildcat is not unbearably rough. I think all it needs is a re-tracking.

Wildcat is the PERFECT candidate for the RMC treatment in my opinion. The park has several other (actually good) woodies, and Wildcat's layout is pretty bland and has some nice potential for a cool hybrid. It would also fit in the lineup perfectly, and there aren't any other RMCs immediately nearby. I think it's only a matter of time.

Update from today - the B&M hyper is looking good!

 

Station, transfer and brake run track, along with the three maintenance bays have been installed.

 

Really will be the Fury for Hershey Park - can sense the scale of the ride when walking to the entrance already!

The ultimate coaster show down. Intamin vs B&M. Crazy thing is both hypers will be next to each other in the same park. Seems like something I would do in RCT2.

While I am very excited to see the additions to both Busch Gardens Willamsburg and Hersheypark, I'm definitely more excited for the latter, as not only is it a new ride, but also the future possibilities that a new expansion/land provides you. I can't wait to see in, say a decade, how the new area is filled out. Maybe by then, they will have expanded (or will be expanding) over across Park Boulevard to the other section of the old golf course.

Ive never had to wait to enter a water attraction such as a playground or wave pool or more than a short wait for a lazy river. Thanks HP and 98° heat.

To me Wildcat has the perfect amount of roughness. No where as bad as Predator.

 

This. Anyone who says Wildcat is rough hasnt ridden Predator. Heck, I dont think Invadr was much smoother.

Here's my thoughts after visiting here for the first time...

 

- Storm Runner is an intense ride, one of the best ive ridden.

 

- read somewhere that Great Bear has the loudest B&M roar, and while I have limited first hand experience with B&M, that thing is loud as hell, especially in the sooperdooperlooper station.

 

- superdooperlooper is amazingly smooth for how old it is, especially compared to an Arrow.

 

- never again will I go on a Saturday, in July, on a concert day, when its 98 degrees. It was miserable and the crowds, especially in the water park, were unbearable. That said it cleared out pretty good in the evening. The only coaster I waited for all day was Laff Trakk.

 

- Lightning is better and smoother than Thunder.

 

- Reese's Tower has some serious airtime.

 

- Tidal Force is by far the best of its kind that ive ridden so far. Its wave puts Escape from Pompeii to absolute shame. I did not get a single drop of water on me riding Pompeii. 1. Tidal Force 2. Jurassic Park (IOA) 3. Shipwreck Falls (SFDL) 52. Escape from Pompeii

 

- missed out on Cupfusion and Skyrush due to lack of time

 

- Love that they have Chick-fil-a, but unfortunately its the slowest moving one.

 

- maybe its just me, but I hated this parks layout. Everything seems spread out in no logical order, signage is terrible and finding ride entrances is difficult.

 

I'll be back at some point but probably not until the kids hit Twizzler level. They were upset they couldnt ride Storm Runner and I was mad I couldnt make it to Skyrush. With that and the crowds Chocolatetown will probably draw I dont see myself coming back for a bit.
