Title: Hersheypark
Post by: Pineracer on May 04, 2019, 12:59:34 pm
Let's talk about the Sweetest Place on Earth.

Apparently, track is being fabricated in Ohio for their 2020 coaster.

Curious if anyone's been this year. Do the new drop towers here have the new seat belts like the older ones? I know the restraints are different and previously had no belts anywhere on them.

No official announcement has been made about the coaster yet. Some videos of it from the Chocolate Town video http://www.hersheypark.com/chocolatetown/. Looks like it'll be a very fun Nitro style ride, not intense like Skyrush but fun and enjoyable for all the types of people that go to Hershey.

From the concept art: B&M Hyper

And now we completely know. Looks fun, hopefully similar to Mako in Orlando

I've seen a few comments about it being short but overall I think it looks like a nice addition.

I saw the complaining and I was like really.  People are too entitled, expect a giant gigs coaster every year and itís insane that they think the park owes them something!

The people on Great Adventure History also called it a baby Nitro.

I'm more hoping for a baby Mako...

Candymonium is still not on the park's website under rides. seems weird, but GA doesn't have Jersey Devil either.

Chocolate World has partially reopened. I feel it's enough to gauge what the park might do.

Would make sense that Chocolate world has similar restrictions. Might see a capacity restriction on the park though.

Someone on GAH made a point that the park got no shade. So it'll be rough

Park opening July 3 along with the debut of Candymonium.  Normally there would have been a trip for us there this year but it will probably be 2021 now.

I also think I will take it easy this year and look to do something bigger in 2021.

Looks Like Storm Runner will definitely not operate this year, Kissing Tower most likely won't, and Sooperdooperlooper is temporarily closed.

Storm Runner is expensive to operate due to the hydraulic launch, Kissing tower is a long ride in an enclosed vehicle, and I think the latter's queue might be harder to social distance-along with capacity and demand might determine that.

Sounds like Storm Runner couldn't get the parts they needed from Europe because of the Pandemic

Candymonium is an excellent compliment to Skyrush.  I think Candymonium is the best of the US B&M hypers.  The first half is almost as good as Mako's, but unlike Mako where the second half meanders, Candymonium still has good airtime through the end.

I really liked it as well. In the back you are out of your seat the entire first drop. Only critique is to lay off the trims. Rides without them were more fun.  Super smooth and quite too.

I'm happy to see that you both enjoyed the coaster and that it seems to be a sucess for the park.

Seems like they are putting up straightforward checks. About what I would expect to see anywhere.

They were selling one day tix for 40% off earlier.  We bought two so we know we will be going at some point this summer.  We haven't been there in a few years so Candymonium will be a new coaster for us.
