When I rode Wildcat I did not feel any pain, unlike whenever I ride Thunderhawk at Dorney.

^ Funny, with me it's the other way round.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

Rode Wildcat the other day expecting a rough ride but was pleasantly surprised with it. Fun ride and I didnt find it rough. Admittedly it wasn't as smooth as Lightning Racer but it wasn't bad at all. I also really liked Thunderhawk at Dorney too.

Yeah, it's a shame my family probably won't make the trip again next summer considering we live 6 hours away, but I was so glad to have the opportunity to go. Wait times were brutal, but it was all worth it! I had a night ride in a wing seat on Skyrush and it was absolutely ridiculous. #AirtimeBuffet

Making my way back to the hotel from the preview. Only one lap on Skyrush, but it's instantly my new #1. The air, the forces, the smoothness; it's quite simply perfection. Can't wait to make my way back tomorrow to get more laps.

That was my reaction too. Generally I am dead silent on coasters but my first ride on Skyrush found me screaming: "THIS IS THE GREATEST RIDE EVER".

Just going through some pics and thought I'd post a few from my two visits to Hershey this year in June and July. The zoo is pretty good! I mean, c'mon, just try not to say "awwww".

Stormrunner has really grown on me, it's definitely my second favorite in the park.

Ever notice how LaffTrakk and Lightning Racer have complimentary stations?

Oh snap. I'd forgotten that I'd .gif'd this. That explains why I was uploading 25 pictures but it was telling me 29 files selected. D'oh.

I'm in the camp that believes this ride is underrated....
IMG_0898.JPG
...severely underrated. It is phenomenal.

This is a train ride, and...

I thought this was construction for a new woodie (for a split second). D'oh!

The train ride is themed move heavily than the rest of the park.

ejot great photo trip report! Never really got into the animals when I went, looks like I've made a mistake, lol. I kinda agree that Storm runner is quite an amazing ride I think it loses points b/c it is so short. I also feel similarly about skyrush however my friend HATE b/c it has so much ejector airtime.
