  1. The State of the Park Going Forward

    Dorney Park has the same restriction. Steel force and Dominator are exactly 200'. The height is measured from the ground the ride is built on. This is how the Hershey Tower even though its 9 feet shorter in height than Skyrush gives the feeling the tower is taller.

    Thanks! It's good that they do allow them because I expected the strict security the park has to deny them. I saw one person bring one at Six Flags New England and me and some of my friends were able to bring their portable chargers to Hersheypark as security there is minimal.
  3. Misc GA Mumblings

    Are portable phone charging devices allowed to be brought in the park? My phone constantly crashes each time I use it uncharged for 5 minutes.
  4. Miscellaneous Mumblings

    Hopefully it's a coaster of some sorts that is larger than the one they have. As long as its a family style one and not a kiddie coaster.
  5. The State of the Park Going Forward

    The state allowed the grandfathering of the Hershey's Kissing Tower and Kennywood's former drop tower, both of which are over 200' in height because they were built before the restriction was added. It just sucks that PA would make a law like that as Hersheypark wouldn't really be able to add a decent Star Flyer like ride which could round out their flat ride collection.
  6. El Toro wins Best Wooden Coaster Golden Ticket 2017

    Usually they're pretty fast and can dispatch a train when the previous reaches the brakes but when they try to fit a larger rider in, this can significantly delay operations.
  7. The State of the Park Going Forward

    But then there will be a height limit of 200'.
  8. I'm one of those people too. They shouldn't remove Green Lantern because it was added not too long ago and usually has an average wait time of 30 minutes on a normal day.

    Happy birthday Doug!
  10. El Toro/KK loose article policy

    This is the kind of reason why the popularity of Dragon Challenge declined. The hassle of being forced to pay for a locker discouraged some that were just too lazy to do so. The policy also seems to have reduced the lines for El Toro but not so much on Kingda Ka. Last year El Toro would sometimes get an hour wait during the week but nowadays, the line never gets longer than 15 minutes during the week; the longest line I've seen for El Toro this season was 35 minutes.
  11. Photo Trip Report: August 31st, 2017 - Cyborg Ride Revealed

    I'm guessing Cyborg Cyber Spin will be built where the Autobahn building is at. Hopefully this reopens the Old Country section.
  12. Hershey Park Friday Aug 25th

    That made me a bit nervous the first time I went as they get similar attendance levels to Great Adventure but at least the clientele that usually visits isn't the kind that acts trash.
  13. Hershey Park Friday Aug 25th

    I understand why the Intamins don't run during Christmas Candylane but why doesn't Great Bear run during the event if it's a B&M? Great Adventure can run all five of theirs even though they close Bizarro.
  14. Hershey Park Friday Aug 25th

    Six Flags America is only a 2 hour and 15 minute drive from where I'm from but it might be a half hour longer from your area. There's Playland's Castaway Cove in Ocean City however the Gale Force coaster costs $14 to ride which is way overpriced. Jenkinson's Boardwalk in Point Pleasant Beach is a smaller boardwalk park with nothing very major, kind of like Gillian's Wonderland Pier also in Ocean City. Luna Park, the park in Coney Island is also within 2 hours of the Mt. Holly area but the park is in a bad area of the city. My mom's car was almost broken in there when she lived in NYC and crime there is pretty high.

    It's good that Flying Turns runs all their trains as it helps with its low capacity. If Flying Turns can run all their trains, then Impulse should too.
