  1. Fright Fest 2017

    Fright Fest on weeknights can be a hit or miss crowd wise. Some days it can be dead while other days such as last year's preview night the park was crowded. Usually the crowded weeknights are because of religious holidays.
  2. Fright Fest 2017

    How can it be crowded on a Thursday? I'm thinking it's because of Rosh Hashanah, and Lakewood and a further extent, Cherry Hill have a large Jewish population. Unfortunately I won't be able to go this weekend anymore but hopefully the park is not crowded when I go next Friday.

    I plan on getting an iPhone 8 for my birthday which is a month from now.
  4. Fright Fest 2017

    How crowded is the park expected to be this weekend? If I don't go tomorrow after my practice, I may end up going on the weekend so I can still visit the park this month.
  5. 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.
  6. Misc GA Mumblings

    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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. The State of the Park Going Forward

    But then there will be a height limit of 200'.
  12. 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.
  13. GAH Members' Birthday Thread

    Happy birthday Doug!
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
