^ Honestly Predator was running great on Monday. I did ride in the front though.

I went back to the park on May 31 for my third visit. Here are my thoughts:

1) Reese's Cupfusion was fantastic, but methinks I could have achieved a higher score if the three other people I was riding with didn't steal those targets I was aiming for.

2) i rode Whitecap Racer and I finished with the time 16.4 seconds, which was faster compared to the top time on the leader board of that day, which was 16.43 seconds. Anyone out there went faster than I did?

3) I love their Breaker's Edge water coaster - I rode it twice that day!

4) While Skyrush was still closed, so were a few other rides. For the first time in all the years I've been coming to the park, this was the first time I ever seen The Whip being closed. Methinks the reason for the closure of some of those rides was due to low number of park attendants the park had that day. Some of the rides that were running had a low number of attendants running it. For example - On my last visit, there were three attendants running THE CLAW; this visit, only two - no one was at the entrance, just two running the ride.

5) I finally got to ride Sidewinder! Merry Derry Fun slides were still closed.

6) They had East Coast Waterworks running, but the entrance was closed off. Why would they run that area, but have no one inside? At least The Shoreline Sprayground was up and running, and it was perfect to cool off after a hot riding on Breaker's Edge.

Today wasn't my best visit due to crowds that began to accumulate and the fact that I may had injured myself and need time off to recover, but I did ride Laff Traxx three times in row, and then rode Wild Mouse three times. I did that because I waited an hour to ride Laff Traxx on my last visit, and with hardly no people no line this time, I took the advantage and got SWEET revenge. As for Wild Mouse, I missed this coaster on my last two visits, so I wanted to play catch up. I got on Cupfusion while the lines were light, and even though they don't allow single riders on the Scrambler, the ride attendant allow me to ride by myself because there were nobody else in line. Ah, the joys of being an early bird.

I'm hoping that when I return to Hersheypark later this month (Ah, the joys of being a season pass holder) all the rides will be running, the crowds will be lighter, and I'll have the best time ever.

I think so? I thought I read somewhere it was the footers under the lift but this is obviously not the lift. And it would make sense it was on the far side since it was *apparently* damaged by construction vehicles. If thats true, why would they be all the way over by the lift?

I've heard conflicting things whether or not it was a construction worker. Either way, I'm glad this monster will be back up and running soon.

Word on the streets of Hershey, PA is that Skyrush has been testing today. There is video floating around the groups on FB if you need that.

Even better, I'm seeing people post that they just rode it.
