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

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

^ that's great news.

 

they wouldn't be testing if they weren't planning on opening this summer (at least that's how i'm gonna look at it)

 

That could definitely be as sign. However, it could also just a test run, not indicating an opening. If the trains have already been assembled on the track, they would need to run the tracks every now and then to prevent wheels from becoming square. However, I honestly don't see hersheypark not opening this year. I do wonder how abysmal the operations are gonna ve.

The trains aren't left on wheels when in the maintenance area so they won't go square. Testing now isn't really a sign of anything, it's just the next logical step to handing over the ride to Hersheypark so there's no reason to not test it now if they are able to, and then if/when the park opens, the ride will be ready if they wish to open it this season. It also makes sense to get the testing done now so it doesn't hold up periphery work like completing the new entrance area.

A trim wouldn't shock me but the pacing doesn't look that far off from Mako as-is.

 

PS: Local and state mandates aside, they have a LOT of work to do on the main gate before they can even think about opening.

Yeah, there’s a trim on the hill right after the turnaround. Pretty common.

 

It seems B&M hypers always test first without trims so they haul through the course on first test runs. Later test runs are always much slower.

Glad to see Hershey testing their new for (likely) 2021 coaster already! IMHO, it's iffy if Hershey opens at all this year based on the work they have to do on the main gate even if other area parks open such as Dorney and Knoebels.

I honestly don't think that would completely hold them back from opening all year but it may also be a weird, thrown-together entry experience.

I hope that little speed hill before the helix is like Mako's little speed hill before the midcourse. That is my favorite part of Mako, especially in the front row.

 

Also, its nice its got the roar going for it.

I commented on the TPR FB group, that this reminds me very much of Apollo's Chariot (which I LOVE, so that's not a slam at all).

 

not sure how many elements are similar, but it reminds me of that. . .can't wait to ride this, as I'm sure it will quickly become my 2nd favorite in the park - behind Stormrunner.

If the new entrance isn't ready, I assume they'd just use the temporary entrance like they did last year.

^This. I wouldn't see them completely scrapping the season because the new entry isn't ready. Their temporary setup that they've had since the start of last season is perfectly fine in the interim.

So you’re saying that if Covid never happened the park would not open the entire year because their new entrance isn’t ready????

If not for COVID, construction would've been able to keep going full boar over the last few weeks

No, that's not even remotely close to what I'm saying. How did you manage to come up with that based off the words I typed?
