Looks like two solid additions for the Boardwalk! I haven't spent any time over there before, but I might consider going to the water park with the new water coaster.
Watched the announcement stream off of Hersheypark's FB page and immediately after the announcement several people began to complain that the new water coaster is "not a real rollercoaster". That's enthusiasts for you I guess.

Can we not start with this? No one cares about this except whiny enthusiasts.
Don't call a water slide a coaster and there is no discussion.
It's a water coaster, not a water slide.
A so called water coaster is just a water slide that you sit in a tube. Using the logic that these are coasters than flumes are coasters too. But, nobody calls flumes coasters b/c they aren't.
Why do you care that much about what other people call a coaster? Seriously it's not that big of a deal to get that butt hurt over someone else's opinion. Maybe you should look into another hobby if you are getting this anal over what you consider a coaster or not one.
