Isn't a water coaster just a bobsled (Mack or Intamin versions) with water instead of a break run? If you think of it that way, you can do some mental contortion to believe the claims that it is a roller coaster.

You are saying this about the people that to this day complain about the condor ride being removed and the rapids ride being removed a couple years ago. And did you see that one guy in the comments that was upset because Hersheypark removed a little scene from the train ride? The people of Hershey never forgive and never forget.
A couple years? More like 9. Almost a decade and people still insist with every new ride announcement that the rapids is making a comeback. They hold a grudge like crazy
This announcement looks fantastic. I was expecting either a mat racer or a water coaster to replace Tidal Force. I wasn't expecting Hershey to get both slides and keep Tidal Force. This is a major win for the park!
The POV of Breakers Edge looks amazing. SFFT's Thunder Rapids looked intriguing with the saucer turns, but I was bummed to see that it didn't really have any of the standard water coaster drops that give fantastic air. Breakers Edge is the best of both worlds combining both. The two drops after the saucer turns should have incredible air with how fast you enter into them. Then the mat racer has a much more unique layout than the others I've seen.
I've never actually made time to ride anything at Hershey's water park, but that's going to change the next time I'm there.
