People said Leviathan and Behemoth would be too similar. But they ride entirely different. It's all speculation, but a B&M hyper would have a drastically different ride experience than Skyrush. Both are tall, but they'd have different types of airtime and the layouts appear quite a bit different too.
Genx24 wrote:^ Wasn't aware of the height restriction. Still, I personally don't think they'd add another hyper, different experience or not.
I'd gladly eat my words though, they're still pretty damn fun.
Yeah, I believe they have a pretty stiff 200 ft restriction due to a nearby hospital helipad or something.
My speculation of a B&M Hyper is purely based on how I interpreted the submitted drawings for the 2020 attraction, not necessarily what I think is best for the park.
The footer map indicates an out-and-back layout with a B&M-like turn around finished with a helix-y ending, a flow of elements we've seen many times. (Mako, Nitro, Behemoth, Silver Star, Diamondback, Intimidator, Shambhala, etc.)
I've been hearing murmurs of a B&M hyper for this park for a little while now. I tend to just shrug and laugh at anyone that speculates on this kinda stuff so early, but the murmurs seem to be... getting louder? I dunno. Until we see some more concrete evidence its just speculation but I don't see a B&M hyper as being completely unreasonable for Hershey's next big coaster.
Its no secret here how much I love this park and since I'll likely be retiring here lol I'm particularly interested in this expansion, though I think its obvious its going to happen over a number of years.
