Love these additions! Glad they were able to use Roller Soaker's spot without taking any more rides out. Great job, Hershey!

These are great additions for Hershey, they certainly needed more slides in the waterpark. On our visit two years ago, we only spent a half day at the waterpark because the slide lines were ridiculously long. The mat racer looks like a lot of fun and should have really good capacity. And I am very happy to see more of these hydromagnetic water coasters being built. I've ridden two this summer (RiverRush at Dollywood and Krakatau at Volcano Bay) and thought they were both fantastic rides. Looks like I am going to have to plan another trip out to Hersheypark!

because I have NO faith in humanity. . .

I give it less than 1 day, until someone sits up and smacks the crap out of their head (or clotheslines themselves) on the 2nd set of Tunnels on the Mat Racer.

so expect either a fully enclosed Mat Racer, or a fully exposed one, within 4 months of the opening.

Great additions. But what is the point of the saucer things? The raft doesn't circle around it or anything.

Just turns with a fancy name.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

Proslide has been using LIMs on their water coasters since they built Deluge at Kentucky Kingdom back in 2007.

I mean there are literally thousands of water slides around the world that go back and forth from tunneled sections to no tunneled sections. Has that really happened yet?

Not to mention I'd imagine the tunnels are designed with enough clearance that if someone sat up they still wouldn't hit their head.
