Trip 23 Part 3: Hershey Park November 1, 2009


The saddest day of the year has arrived. The final day of the 2009 Roller Coaster Season. I was there opening day & now I am here to close it off & there is no better place than Hershey to end a great season. When we first got to the park we headed right to Great Bear since John needed the credit. It was a walk on! Comet had a bit of a line but it only took 10 minutes. Our first run on Comet was slow. Maybe the 10 rides on Phoenix the night before spoiled it After Comet we did Storm Runner since that was a walk on as well! We rode it 2x in a row! Storm Runner was incredibly smooth today! Following Storm Runner was WildCat in the front seat. John needed that credit as well as the Wild Mouse which was next. Following Wild Mouse we raced on Lightning Racers. John needed the Thunder side so I rode Lightning which is my favorite side. There was only one train running so we only rode Lightning Racers that one time & I won on my last ride on Lightning Racers of the year Fahrenheit was next & the longest wait. We waited about 25 minutes. It was a decent ride & if I'm not mistaken my las Intamin ride until next summer since Florida doesn't have any Intamins just mostly B&M & Vekoma. After Fahrenheit we did Trailblazer. After Trailblazer it was time to close out the 2009 Roller Coaster Season. I wanted to end my year on a decent woodie since I'll be so far away from great ones. I chose the Comet & that last ride was much better than earlier. I got great airtime & sat in the back seat. My 2009 Roller Coaster Season is now officially over! The Comet was my last & 580th roller coaster ride of the year! Enjoy the pics:


The Comet closed out a fantastic season!




Last Intamin until August!

The park had creative Halloween names for the coasters. Here is WildCat's.


Storm Runner ran great today! 2x in a row!


Following Great Bear was Comet!

Thanks for reading! Here are my stats for the year & day conclusion! My 2009 roller coaster season final results: 24 trips, 63 times visiting an amusement park, 31 different parks, 19 new parks, 5 states, 121 different coasters ridden, 75 new coasters ridden (I now have 292 total credits), & 580 times on a roller coaster in general! One heck of a season if you ask me & 2010 is going to start much earlier & be even better! Thanks for following along my 2009 Roller Coaster Season thread! I am making a music video of my year & will post it in a few days!
