*blinks a few times*

What did I just walk into?

Listen, if you don't like B&M hypers, that's on you. If you only want the most intense of the intense, then great, Skyrush is gonna be a few hundred steps away from it. As far as "bringing anything new to the table"? Hersheypark is way out there in the middle of cow country. It doesn't need to compete with other coasters that other parks may have. What it does need to do is fill a role that their park is currently missing, which is that of a rerideable crowd eater airtime machine. It's gonna fit that role perfectly. But yeah, if you're not a fan of B&M hypers for whatever reason, I can get how you'd find it boring, even before setting foot on it for the first time. Even before a footer's been poured. But I think most enthusiasts can wait to pass judgment on a coaster until after it's built and open to the public...

...wait, what am I saying? Not in this day and age. Everyone's gotta have their "this might be a controversial opinion BUT" hot take at the ready as soon as anything gets leaked. Forget I said anything. :roll:
That coaster dad [335] and that coaster kiddo [212]. Road trip buddies for life.
Dad's faves: Fury 325. Phantom's Revenge. Twisted Timbers. Intimidator 305. El Toro.

Kiddo's faves: Talon. Alpengeist. Copperhead Strike. Twisted Timbers. Fury 325.

How am I acting entitled? I don't care what Hershey builds, I've never been there, it's not a local park for me, I'm not complaining about it, I've even said it makes perfect sense for them to build this coaster.. all I said is it doesn't look that exciting to ME so I'm willing to go before it opens and that I was surprised that enthusiasts were so excited about it since it seems to bring nothing new to the table.

If you're older than 13, the appropriate response is not "well you're a bitch and you should leave this forum!!!".

But the SECRET SECRET cult meets inside Space Mountain for a relaxing schvitz on the 5th Wednesday of every month.

What's with the donkeys anyway?

Are we all just not going to talk about the secret temple Hersheypark is building for us underneath Candymonium and that's why we're all excited? Or am I not supposed to mention it?

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

Let's change the subject and talk about a few rides inside the park that have yet opened up. could we please?

I know Resse's Cupfusion won't open until May 25, but there are two rides that have yet to reopen: The Sidewinder and The Merry Derry Dip Fun Slides. Could anyone, that is going this coming weekend to the park, report whether or not these two rides have opened up? Whoever does will get my heartfelt thanks. :)
