Oh, that's ENTIRELY different. Everyone knows Six Flags sucks and independent parks are the shizznit, so we only lose our shizznit when an independent park does it. We're enthusiasts. It's what we do.

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. :lmao:

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 :lol:

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.

Great additions without subtractions - good move, Hershey!

I do have a feeling Tidal Force will leave for another water park expansion sometime in the coming years though, but I'm glad they could preserve it for now.

Is Tidal Force not popular? I look at the app from time to time and typically see 60-75 minute waits on hot days.

I think the bigger issue is how big the ride's footprint is and how the water park is adjacent to it. To add more slides, something likely will have to go.
